Rain Drain ports are designed for use where cabin sides are sloped, and other ports would collect rain and spray.
The molded in Rain Drain channels drain while tipped as much as 40. They resist clogging and are easy to clean.
No water enters the boat when you open the port after a rain.
Beckson plastic portlights have a long history of excellent service and superior design features.
They feature no corrosion, no condensation, no leaks, and no waterfall when you open the port.
Screen and exterior trim ring are included
Replacement parts are readily available
All Beckson Opening Ports are CE approved
For replacing existing portlights, Beckson Fixed and Opening Ports are engineered to standard mounting hole sizes for interchangeability with other manufacturer's ports
Selection and Installation
In choosing the size of a portlight for new construction, it is generally best to mount the largest port possible for more light and better ventilation
The slope of the mounting location will dictate the type of port required standard Beckson Self-Draining ports for near vertical mounting (to 15 max.), or Rain Drain ports for larger angle mounting
To determine the spigot length (depth) to order, estimate the hull or cabin wall thickness, and select a spigot at least that deep. Both portlight styles come in 1" or 2" spigot depths. Spigots should be trimmed flush with a fine toothed saw after installation for best drainage.
Note that the thicker the cabin wall thickness, the smaller the slope where Rain Drain ports will self-drain a 1" spigot has a maximum drain angle of 40, while a 2" spigot has a maximum drain angle of 24
Use silicone sealant as sealant for its superior gasket forming properties
