American Marine Products, a Pompano Beach, Fla., manufacturer of welded aluminum doors, windows and windshields, is now offering a powder coating that simulates a wood finish.
Whether for an OEM builder who would like to add a classic appearance to a model or for an owner who is interested in replacing an old windshield or window set, this tough powder-coated finish is virtually indistinguishable from real teak, according to the company.
The wood-frame window line offers an alternative that not only reduces manufacturing costs, but also significantly cuts down on long-term maintenance, according to the company. The coating can be used on interior or exterior frames and carries a warranty against UV degradation for 20 years. In addition, the company’s welded aluminum frames have a lifetime warranty for defects in materials or workmanship.
American Marine Products has been providing builders of yachts, trawlers and workboats with aluminum windshields, doors and CE-certified windows since 1968. Windows and windshield frames can be powder-coated, anodized, or painted with Awlcraft 2000 to match either gelcoat or paint colors. Pricing varies, depending on the size of the frame and the type of job. The simulated wood finish is about 20 percent more than the other coatings offered by the company.
