More about SOLASOLV Sunscreens for Marine Vessels

The world is a big place. Different parts of the world refer to our products by different names. For example, in the UK our products are usually called Window Blinds. In the USA they are called Window Shades. Our SOLASOLV® products are different from most window blinds because you can see though them (they are transparent). Our transparent Window Blinds are also Anti-Glare to help reduce heat and UV light. For this reason, the name Transparent Anti-Glare Window Blinds or Transparent Anti Glare Window Shades are a much more accurate description. Taking this one step further, our main target market is the marine / maritime sector. Our Transparent Anti-Glare Window Blinds and Transparent Anti-Glare Window Shades are used in the navigation wheelhouse and navigation bridge on marine vessels, oil tankers, tug boats, naval vessels and other sea-going craft.

We also manufacture blackout Window Blinds and blackout Window Shades. This brand is called ROLASOLV®. These are also used in the marine / maritime sector on marine vessels, oil tankers, tug boats, naval vessels and other sea-going craft in non-navigation areas such as crew and guest accommodation and on floatels (floating hotels used for oil rig and gas platform accommodation). Our Blackout Roller Shades are Flame Retardant. They are the ONLY BRAND in the world that are Type Approved for use on all types of marine vessels. The flame retardant fabric used to make our ROLASOLV® blackout window shades are available in a range of colours to match new or existing interior décor.

Our products can also be called sunblinds for marine windshields or sunblinds for ships windshields. To be more accurate, the word Anti-Glare should be added to the front of the name to give Anti-Glare window shades for wheelhouse windshields or wheelhouse windows. Anti glare screens for wheelhouse windshields and roller screens for wheelhouse windshields or bridge windows is also another excellent way to describe our products.

The Film

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.

We are suppliers of sunblinds to Cruise Liners, Shipping Companies, Oil Companies, the Ministry of Defence and other Navy’s around the world.


Solar Solve products are used on Floatels. What is a Floatel? A floatel is a floating hotel – home to thousands of off shore workers world wide. Solar Solve Blackout Roller Blinds are Flame Retardant for maximum safety and are the ONLY Roller Blinds that are Type Approved for use on off shore structures. Oil and gas companies want their crew to get the maximum amount of rest when they are off-duty. ROLASOLV® Blackout Roller Blinds turn day into night so crew can get restful sleep no matter what time it is. This is why ROLASOLV® Blackout Roller Blinds are specified by Oil and gas companies and are being installed on hundreds of oil rigs, gas platforms and other off shore structures all over the world.
