SOLAROLA® transparent anti glare roller sunscreen / blinds without an anodised aluminium cassette

SOLAROLA® anti-glare sunscreens are a cost effective alternative to SOLASAFE® sunscreens. They still offer the same great benefits as SOLASAFE® sunscreens but do not have the protective aluminium cassette and ‘wipe clean’ brush system. SOLAROLA® sunscreens are guaranteed for 2-years and come complete with aluminium bottom rail and optional side channels or guide cables.

Benefits of SOLAROLA® sunscreens include:

•    Improved visibility and safety – glare is reduced by up to 93% to ensure clear visibility and safer navigation.
•    True colour rendition is maintained so navigation marks and objects are easily identified.
•    Reduced eye strain – the problem of glare and reflection on electronic charts is eliminated. Low sun and its reflection on water and ice can be hazardous and uncomfortable.
•    Creates a more comfortable environment – keeps crew alert and maintains work rate by rejecting up to 87%* of the suns heat.
•    Protects exposed areas of the body – at least 98% of harmful UV light is filtered.
     *(maximum benefit can only be achieved by installing SOLAROLA screens at all windows)

Other features of SOLAROLA® sunscreens:

•    Guaranteed unconditionally for 2-years
•    Easy to install, simple to operate
•    Choice of operating systems and film colours
•    Made to measure
•    Only sunscreens in the world to be type approved by Lloyd’s, DNV, ABS and RINA

(LOVO-24V D.C) is available for smaller sized roller blinds. High voltage (HIVO-230V A.C, 50Hz or 60Hz) is available over the full range of roller blind sizes. Contact the technical department for more details. 




Battery Operation

Radio Control Handset
Surface Mounted Switch


The Radio controller is CE marked (European Conformity) and transmits on 433MHz.

The Radio controller complies with:

  • 2006/95/EC Low Voltage Directive
  • 89/336/EEC EMC Directive

Choice of Films

Because of their highly reflective outer surfaces GOLD and SILVER are the most effective solar films. If a reflective appearance is not desired we recommend GREY film as the next best option.
