Brombach + Gess
Brombach + Gess has been a specialist in glass bonding technology in industrial shipbuilding for over 30 years and implements demanding projects in glass on ocean and river cruise ships, according to the customer’s needs. Continuous, frameless glass surfaces make elegant and transparent construction forms possible. For a ship, on which space is a valuable commodity, frameless glass projects the illusion of more space and an unbounded view of the passing panorama. Brombach + Gess offers an extensive portfolio, like windscreen and balustrade solutions, glass sliding roof, frameless sliding windows, skylights, fire-rated glasses and more.
At the expo Brombach + Gess will be presenting an exhibit of a new development, the Loggia-Cabin Window System. This provides an interesting alternative to the classic balcony of a passenger cabin and extends the private cabin area by the size of the balcony. The cabin is closed by a floor-deep, horizontally divided panoramic glass front. This new development provides an “infinite-feeling” and thus creates a new and innovative cabin category.
