To have a set of Flybridge clears designed and manufactured that look like glass windows and don’t flap around whilst driving is something that we specialise in here at East Coast Trimming.
What are Flybridge Clears?
The flybridge, AKA flying bridge is usually the highest bridge on a boat and therefore also usually gives the best view around all sides of the vessel.
Before the introduction of clear PVC most flybridges had no or little protection from the wind and rain, but due to the advancements in technology we are now able to make a clear screen which covers the front, sides and sometimes rear of the flybridge and these are called flybridge clears.
Types of flybridge clears
There are 3 main types of PVC (AKA Vinyl) sheeting used for clears, these are –
Calendared clear is a high quality, low cost product which is ideal for cafes and restaurant blinds, houseboats clears, rear deck clears or any other purpose where crystal clear visual clarity is not highly valued.
It is not usually used for flybridge clears, but it really depends on your particular situation and we are happy to chat about what is best for you.
Extruded clear is an excellent quality clear with a mid price range. It is great for flybridge clears and other boat clears as it has excellent visual clarity, also because it comes in rolls it can also be used for restaurant and cafe blinds.
Extruded clear also has a longer lifespan than most calendared clears.
Pressed Polished Sheet Clear
For those who only want the very best, pressed polished sheet clear is for you. It is at the top of the price range but the quality vs cost makes it all worth it.
Custom Flybridge Clears
We understand that off the shelf does not compare to a perfectly made custom flybridge clear, not only do our custom flybridge clears provide you with protection from the wind, spray and rain, but they will also be designed, styled and made to suit your boat and give you the exact look you desire.
