In conjunction with our Dutch partners, we have developed new fold down boat windscreens. Houdini Marine Windows is the first company to offer a unique option to double glaze a windscreen to stop the misting of the screen panels. The system of these boat windscreens has been designed to incorporate future easy remove of failed double glazed units, without the need to dismantle the screen. That is another first!

The benefits of our boat windscreens

Our boat windscreens offer the provision to securely fasten the canopy studs into the screen using a solid aluminium block. The use of a rubber top rail stops chafing the canopy, where it bends around the top rail. Moreover, the rubber extrusion between each panel stops the screen panels ‘chattering’ together when the engine is running. The stainless steel hinges are custom-designed and built to be almost invisible. They can be configured to either lift off or be permanently hinged, to allow easy operation of lowering the screen for safe passage under bridges. The screen panels of our boat windscreens are jointed together with aluminium cover plates and quick release catches, so the operation of lowering the screen is both quick and straightforward.


  • The screens are fitted with either 6 millimetres toughened glass or 20 millimetres double glazed units.

  • Easy installation.

  • The top rails feature an aluminium bar for permanent fixing of canopy fastenings.

  • Easy removal of glazing for repair or replacement.
