SOLASOLV on naval vessel

SOLASOLV®

SOLASOLV® Transparent Anti-Glare Sunscreens reduce glare and heat caused by the sun to create a safer and more comfortable operational environment.

There has never been a better time to install SOLASOLV® screens on your naval fleet to ensure safer navigation, improve crew comfort and lower harmful CO2 emissions.

There are growing economic and environmental pressures to reduce power consumption, eliminate wastage and increase energy efficiency within the military environment. SOLASOLV® anti glare roller screens can help achieve this by rejecting up to 87% of the sun’s heat on the navigation bridge. This reduces demand on air conditioning systems which lowers harmful CO2 emissions whilst also saving fuel and money.

In addition to the environmental and cost saving benefits, the safety benefits of SOLASOLV® are extremely important. Safe operation of military and coast guard vessels is essential. SOLASOLV® screens reduce up to 93% of glare and reflection from the sun making them a vital navigation safety aid when used at navigation bridge windows. Other ship locations can also benefit such as control rooms, observation rooms, operation rooms and windows where navigators and operators must have a completely clear outside view. SOLASOLV® screens are also effective at rejecting the glare from ice and snow and low winter sun. In Arctic conditions the screens help to reject the very cold outside air.

International regulations and certification is well-covered within Solar Solve’s product range. Frequent inspections and audits from recognised classification bureaus and an effective internal quality system ensures top quality, reliable and effective products. SOLASOLV® is the only brand in the world to be Type Approved by DNV-GL, Lloyds and ABS. All products are custom made, instantly retractable, easy to install and simple to use.

SOLASOLV® Transparent Anti-Glare Sunscreens have a 7 year guarantee.

Specify the SOLASOLV® brand by name – no alternative, to ensure your naval fleet have the most effective and reliable sun protection available for newbuilds, re-fits, upgrades and conversions….guaranteed to perform and maintenance free.

More about SOLASOLV Sunscreens for Naval, Military and Coast Guard Vessels

The specialist shade film used in our Anti-glare transparent sunblinds 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.

Effective, reliable and durable

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. The film is not affected by sub-zero temperatures, tropical heat or humidity. An important factor for roller screens that will be used in a wide range of environments. Non-cassette screens are also available.

Our experienced technical support team can work from drawings supplied if required.
