Acrylic is the ideal material for aquarium construction. It has been used for many years in building fish tanks, but never for such wide commercial use. Hydrosight has, over the years, acquired good knowledge and experience in this sector.
Aquarium Window Installation
This page is about the installation of aquarium windows. Hydrosight is a unique design/build firm recognized for reliable installation of stationary aquarium windows for concrete tanks. After years of experience we have an install base in many European countries and around the world.
An underwater window for aquariums consists mainly of an acrylic block, that has been prepared to be used for this purpose. It does not need a frame for this purpose. (For framed windows please go to our premanufactured underwater window page).
The window is sealed into a concrete rebate opening of the aquarium wall or floor.
All installation work is done by Hydrosight.
Sizes and shapes according to customers' request for the required format up to 3m x 6m possible.
Please note that we do not build the smaller all-acrylic aquarium tanks only in special cases.
Hydrosight Aquarium Installation Services in Detail
Public Aquarium Construction
The production and installation of aquarium viewing panels is a very particular task performed by specialized companies such as Hydrosight. No matter if you are looking at building or extending a public aquarium, oceanarium or dolphinarium Hydrosight might be the right source for underwater glazing.
If you want a great viewing experience you need great viewing panels. As an experienced processor of acrylic we are able to supply you with the right material. Our high grade acrylic of the type Plexiglas GS comes in standard sizes but can be cut or bonded to virtually any size you need. Acrylic panels can also be thermoformed to your desired shape.
We deliver either the panels for DIY installation or we install and waterproof the windows for you. Due to the amount of water in these tanks they are usually fully integrated in the building. The window blocks are directly sealed into concrete openings. This differs from all-in-one aquaria, that are transportable (at least when emptied). Hydrosight does not build these sort of aquaria, only in specials shapes (such as cylinder aquaria) or for large customers.
