To date, Formator’s laminated glass can be found in prominent structures such as “The Shard” in London, “The Vessel” in New York, “Tour Odeon” in Monte Carlo, “Freedom Bridge” in Georgia and “Doha Airport” in Qatar, among others. Moreover, over 80 ships worldwide are equipped with Formator laminated glass.

Pioneers in the production of laminated glasses with SentryGlas® for the marine sector
In 2007, the company delivered laminated glasses with SentryGlas® interlayer for the Ruby Princess cruise ship.

Miklus added, “This was the first time that SentryGlas® was used in the marine sector, an environment known for its harsh conditions of salt, humidity and sun exposure. Over the years, its efficacy has been proven, leading to its increased usage by different shipyards. Today, the use of SentryGlas® has become the norm in the marine sector.”

Leaders in electrically heated glasses for ship wheelhouses
Over the past fifteen years, the company has produced more than 2,500 units of heating glass, making it one of the European leaders in this specialized field. These heating glasses have been installed on over 80 ship wheelhouses, with a majority of them being cruise ships.

“At Formator, we have a dedicated area for electrically heated glasses, where we not only carry out production but also conduct tests and research,” Miklus said. “In recent years, we have witnessed an increasing demand from the construction sector, where electrically heated glass can be utilized as a heating source. We offer our electrically heated glass under the brand name HeatVision®, and with the growing focus on zero-energy buildings, we anticipate strong demand in the years to come.”
