We decided to use Optiwhite™ glass and black silicone, specially developed for the purposes of marine aquariums and guaranteeing the highest water-tightness. The crystal clear glass does not distort the colors, is easy to clean and increased scratch-resistance. Pilkington Optiwhite™ is a low-iron super clear glass with no greenish tint, which is extremely important especially in thick glass marine aquariums. Ultra even surface is guaranteed by the highest quality manufacturing process and ensures no distortion providing perfect conditions to observe your corals. The black overflow box, bottom and rear glass guarantee high aesthetics. The removable weir comb is easy to clean, and due to the noise-cancelling cover, the water flow is almost inaudible. Professional foam ensures safety and enables easy installation of the aquarium on the cabinet. The appropriate thickness of the glass allowed us to create rimless aquarium while maintaining excellent light transmittance and full safety of the set.
The Optiwhite™ glass, appreciated by aquarists all over the world, is placed on waterproof high-pressure hardwood plywood construction guaranteeing high load-bearing capacity. The AF Aquariums sets reach our customers with a completely assembled supporting structure, due to this you save time and you can be sure that it has been properly assembled and thoroughly tested. The specific requirements of marine aquariums made us decide on technologies, that meet the highest standards and requirements in the construction of marine yachts. It guarantees durability and safety, making the cabinet
10 times more durable than other products of this type available on the market.
Marine yacht technology means using only waterproof materials, that areresistant to difficult conditions i.e. humidity or heat. The construction has no weak points, besides the multi-layered pressured yacht plywood, we took care of the smallest details such as Japanese steel hinges and A2 stainless steel screws with increased durability. The minimalist design perfectly fits any interior, and the removable waterproof external panels will allow you changing the color of the cabinet without disassembling or moving the aquarium. We combined aesthetics with practicality, which is why we focus on the convenience of use! The modern design allowed us to create the right amount of space for the daily aquarium service, as well as to create a comfortable shelf (e.g. for a dosing pump) and a place for a chiller.
Solid PVC sump mounted on a vibration-reducing foam adds the finishing touch. We decided on PVC instead of glass not only for great looks but also for the highest durability and water-tightness. Modern design of the sump includes also water level markings to ease equipment adjustment. We have equipped the cascading chambers with filtration socks, that can be replaced anytime with Aquaforest media reactors. The check valve prevents water from flowing into the sump, e.g. in the event of a circulation pump failure or a temporary power failure. The pipe diameters adapted to the needs of advanced aquarium hobby guarantee a large system capacity, and thus - a much more efficient filtration.
All plumbing elements have been designed for the needs of marine aquariums, you can assemble them quickly and above all - without gluing! We used solid bulkheads of large diameters to prevent even the smallest micro leakages, that often lead to base panels defomartions and eventually cracking the aquarium bottom. A precise gate valve will allow you to easily set the water level.
