Everything you need to know about our Marine Blackout Screens

Solarglide offer two unique and distinctive fabric choices, which can be viewed below in the ‘Colour Collections’ section. The DART collection is a PVC based fabric that is hard wearing, easy to clean and mould resistant. The CARNIVAL collection is made from recycled polyester yarns and is also suitable for moist marine environments. Both Fabric ranges are FR approved to standards BS5867, Part 2: Type B 2008 and specifically tested for offshore usage.

Solarglide’s blackout fabrics eliminate up to 99% of incoming light and can reduce internal temperatures by up to 10°C in warm climates, they are perfect for keeping cabins cool. Dart and Carnival fabrics are IMO FR approved and are available in twenty-three fabric colours. Alongside our standard blackout fabric ranges (Dart & Carnival), we also offer two ranges of MED approved blackout fabrics. Collectively, these two ranges offer a further fourteen neutral colours. Corresponding data sheets can be found below in the ‘Colour Collections’ section.

Solarglide blackout screens are available as cassetted or non cassetted blind solutions; they can be manually operated, battery operated, hard wired or motorised.  Standard manual operating mechanisms include single or double pulley system, centre pull handle, level pegs, sidewinder chain or cable guides. The Solarglide team will always recommend the best solution for your vessel’s requirements.

Providing both privacy and security, Solarglide blackout blinds are robust and durable, ensuring improved sleeping conditions for crew and passengers alike. Powder coated cassette and bottom rail profiles come in white or light grey, with further unique RAL colours are available on request.
