SOLASOLV, the heat rejecting, anti-glare sunscreens for navigation bridge windows manufactured by UK company Solar Solve Marine, has been successfully installed on over 100,000 windows on more than 10,000 vessels worldwide.(Left: With SOLASOLV Right: Without SOLASOLV)
While sunscreens may be an afterthought to some ship designers and builders the benefits they provide far outweigh the small cost of installation. Whilst their primary benefit is to protect the ship’s crew from the glare of the sun, the sunscreens significantly reduce eye-strain and allow reading modern navigational displays easier so human errors are less likely to occur.
This is thanks to the sophisticated solar shade film used in SOLASOLV sunscreens which can reject up to 93 percent of the sun’s glare and up to 99 percent of harmful UV light. SOLASOLV sunscreens use an advanced sunlight filtering system offering a 100 percent completely clear outside view with true colour rendition. The sunscreen’s also have heat rejecting properties which can reject up to 87 percent of the sun’s heat when installed at every window on the bridge. This not only reduces fatigue by creating a more comfortable and cooler working environment, but can greatly reduce the need for air-conditioning, meaning green thinking ship owners can benefit from fuel savings while lowering their CO₂ emissions.
SOLASOLV sunscreens are the only sunscreens to be type approved by DNV, Lloyds and ABS.
SOLASOLV sunscreens are custom-made to individual window dimensions, can usually be manufactured and dispatched within 24 hours, and delivered to any worldwide destination.
