Underwater windows provide a clear view below the water's surface. The applications are versatile, be it for scientific observations, architectural design or just for leisure. They include private and public pools, large aquaria, industrial settings, residential and public buildings, either for flood protection or as a design feature, and even the movie industry, for shooting underwater scenes.
We are the experts in the field of underwater windows. Hydrosight has worked on hundreds of projects around the world and installed custom transparent pool walls and floors in hotels, spas and private residences, panoramic windows and aquarium panels in zoological and oceanographic institutions, underwater viewing windows in touristic semi-submarines, glass-bottom windows in cruise ships and underwater skylights for renowned companies.
A Little Background Info
Underwater windows used to be an expensive and complicated component and could only be found in public aquaria and the most exclusive facilities. In recent years, however, they have become more common. Architects and homeowners now frequently choose underwater windows when they are founding in 2003, Hydrosight has always made easy installation and safety an absolute priority. Underwater windows should provide the same or better safety ratings than any other standardized building component.
Designed for Safety
Hydrosight Underwater Windows are designed and built in Germany. Each product is individually calculated and tested to withstand the water pressure required from the habitat of the window. They are shatter-proof, so the risk of damage while on transport or during installation is negligible. We are very proud of the fact that all operating Hydrosight windows, that we know of, are still in service today. Many of our innovations, not to forget the patent pending double-sealing technology, have made underwater windows not only safe, but also affordable.
Hydrosight Underwater Viewing Windows are built with the pool builder in mind. We are constantly reevaluating how we can make them easier to install. They do not only need to be rigid, but also fault tolerant. This is what makes underwater windows now so popular with pool builders.

A stunning effect can be achieved with a glass wall without top reinforcement. The pool seems to glow in the dark thanks to the underwater lights.
