From the beginning we have chosen to use only carbon fiber or fiberglass in contact with the deck. These composite materials, unlike aluminum, are suitable for all types of boats, they do not age, they do not oxidize and are extremely lightweight. The hatch opening is ensured by gas springs opening full, partial or adjustable. The glass is polymethacrylate of high quality.

To contain the final cost of the hatches, Solimar uses molds made of metal or composite realized by a model built entirely by CNC.
This means that Solimar has a range of dies probably the largest in the world and this is a great advantage for its clients who can avail themselves of a very high quality product, made with industrial methods and therefore the prices are very competitive. It is possible to request the opaque glass for privacy reasons.
The Solimar hatches can be glued, laminated or even bolted to the deck (follow the instructions that we provide along with the hatches). They are designed to be durable even with a simple proper maintenance. Solimar produces only high quality hatches, the
different series are designed to meet the various needs of production boats, custom, maxi and mega yachts,sail and power, refitting . All the hatches are Solimar EEC certificated.

For boats of great series were born the hatches "pure glass" that are compatible with decks already set. The watertight flange is, as Solimar philosophy, in composite fiberglass,it is very light and immune to the corrosion. The handles and hinges follow our minimal but noble philosophy . When the hatch is closed the gas springs are completely hidden, so as to increase the incoming light and giving an exceptional design. Available sizes are 4, all squared.

The claim to have class finishes also on the boats of the series has led Solimar to design flush deck hatches with a reduced thickness compared to the traditional ones.
The molds made from Solimar for this series were designed to molds some thousands of hatches, a production capacity of up to 3000 pieces per year.
This type of hatches can be used along with the traditional laminating hatches on the same boat. There are no differences in aesthetic or quality.
Each injection hatch ( model and type) has a specific mold. Not all sizes are available in different versions (with and without glass, for teak deck and painted deck).

The finishing is white by painting cycle. You can ask for the interior lighting and the sensor opening fully integrated.
