Classification society DNV requires all new offshore supply vessels with Fi-Fi class to be equipped with A-0 windows. This requirement includes the wheelhouse as well as cabins.

In order to meet the general requirements of fire-protection of vessels, a fire-test shall be conducted from the external side (high risk side). Some of the windows fitted on offshore supply vessels are up to two meters tall. The windows in front often leani out 10-25 degrees and the optical requirements are challenging. Furthermore, the windows shall have sufficient strength to withstand the impact of green sea.
 
TeamTec in NOrway has developed an A-0 window which has passed the fire test as required in the FTP code according to IMO Resolution A-754 (18). The maximum dimensions are 1600mm x 1300mm. (for larger sizes up to 2000m x 1600m, TeamTec A60 to be installed). The pressure glass (external glass) can vary in thickness according to the requirements in ISO 3903.

The window meets the requirements for navigation (optical quality and flatness as defined by IMO STCW-95 and ISO 3434). The windows can, as an option, be delivered with an invisible heating film.

Certified by DNV, the window meets all the requirements for an A-0 window on a supply vessel with Fi-Fi class.
