Aviation thrives on innovation, and Aerospace Technologies Group of Boca Raton, Fla., and Aviation Glass & Technology in the Netherlands are doing exactly that.

ATG is a leader in the design and manufacture of aircraft window treatments and shades, and Aviation Glass recently introduced a 1.7-mm clear glass that is up to 25-percent lighter than the typical 3-mm polycarbonate currently in use. The two companies formed a partnership and expect to “conquer new frontiers with its revolutionary glass solution.”

“We are excited to be collaborating with such an industry innovator,” said Aviation Glass founder and CEO Frans van Hapert. “It’s the perfect platform to engage with vital stakeholders and to showcase our unique aviation glass.”

Seeing a “like-minded partner,” ATG president and CEO Simon Kay expressed the opinion that incorporation of the glass into ATG’s window treatments “offers a solution that will not only transform the passenger experience, but also reduce the overall product weight and life-cycle cost.”

Aviation Glass lenses were already incorporated into some of ATG’s products on display at AIX.
