SOLASOLV® Transparent Anti-Glare Roller Blinds reduce glare and heat caused by the sun which can be a dangerous distraction on Offshore Structures and Vessels such as Survey Ships, Drill ships, Dive Support Vessels, Cable Ships, Pipe Laying Vessels and OSV’s. Glare and heat protection is also essential for maintaining a safe operational environment in control rooms, drilling cabs, crane cabs and other areas.
Help the Environment and Improve Safety
In the energy-intensive oil and gas industry there are significant economic and environmental pressure to reduce power consumption, eliminate wastage and increase energy efficiency. The challenge is how to identify products that can help achieve these objectives. SOLASOLV® anti glare transparent roller screens and ROLASOLV® flame retardant fabric roller blinds can help achieve this. Apart from the environmental and cost saving benefits, the safety aspect is also extremely important.
Safe operation of offshore vessels is essential to ensure an incident-free workplace – by reducing up to 93% of glare and reflection from the sun, SOLASOLV® screens are ideal for windows on the navigation bridge, control rooms, crane cabs, drill cabs, observation/operation rooms, and any windows where it is vital that operators have a completely clear view outside.
To retain the best quality crew it is important to keep them happy and alert – by rejecting up to 87% of the sun’s heat SOLASOLV® screens create a pleasant and comfortable working environment. Environmental issues are also addressed by reducing demand on air cooling systems, helping to lower harmful CO2 emissions for a greener, cleaner environment, saving fuel and saving money.

More about ROLASOLV®
Blackout roller blinds for Floatels, Oil Rigs, Platforms, Drill Ships and other Offshore Installations
The specialist fabric used for ROLASOLV® Blackout Roller Blinds is flame retardant and has been stringently tested to ensure it can withstand the extremes of temperature. Our fabrics have BS5438 flame spread certification and fully comply with the mandatory IMO (International Maritime Organization) FTPC Part 7 A.563(14) Resolution.
Did you know? IMO FTPC Part 7 A.563(14) is the main fire testing standard for Textiles and Films that will be used on marine vessels. On 1 July 2002, a comprehensive new set of requirements for fire protection, fire detection and fire extinction on board ships entered into force as a new revised Chapter II-2 of the International Convention for the Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS). The first fire protection requirements for international shipping were developed way back in 1914 as part of the SOLAS Convention in response to the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. (source: www.imo.org).
Many floatels install Solar Solve Blackout Roller Blinds so crew can get sleep no matter what time it is.

Solar Solve Blackout Roller Blinds turn day into night so crew can get some restful sleep no matter what time it is.

More about SOLASOLV®
Anti-glare, heat rejecting transparent roller sun blinds for marine vessels, ATC Towers, Cranes and more
The shade film used for SOLASOLV® Anti Glare roller screens is available in four colours – GOLD and SILVER Reflective, and GREY and BRONZE Non-reflective. The specialist shade film is constructed using layers of polyester film. The film is dyed to reduce glare and the heat is rejected by the layer of aluminium laminated inside the polyester layers. A UV inhibitor is embedded in the polyester film to help eliminate most of the harmful UV light from the sun. GREY film is available with a scratch resistant coating. Roller screens are only required during daylight hours and should be retracted at night.
The shade film is mounted onto a heavy-duty aluminium roller inside an anodised aluminium cassette headbox with integral brush strip to protect from dust and dirt. They are effective, reliable and durable. The film is not affected by sub-zero temperatures, tropical heat or humidity. An important factor for roller screens which are used in specialised work areas. Non-cassette screens are also available.
Control Towers and Crane Cabs often have windows that slope forwards or backwards
• Order screens with constant tension spring rollers and double pulley bottom rails. This system keeps the screen in constant tension so it can be stopped anywhere and the cord will not go across the glass when the screen is retracted.
• Roller screens can be tapered (shaped) on one side or both sides. To install from the top of the window, the top of the screen must be wider than the bottom. If windows are wider at the bottom the screen must be mounted on the bottom of the window frame.
NOTE: The shade film will require a join (seam) across the width for screens which are bigger than 1800 mm in both width and drop.
The bottom of the roller screens are finished with a weighted anodised aluminium bottom bar. Roller screens are available with a spring roller, side chain clutch control or electric operation.
Screens can be mounted top fix, face fix or side fix. All fixings, pulleys and cleats are supplied
Our experienced technical support team can work from drawings supplied if required.
