Marine grade windows, like sliding and fixed types, are vital for safety and view. Sliding windows save space and allow ventilation, while fixed windows with toughened glass endure the sea’s rigours. Electric windows add convenience with easy automation, and manual windows offer reliability, ensuring functionality even without power.
