From luxurious statement pieces to functional yet attractive window dressings, Solarglide’s marine curtain collection offers a dynamic range of fabrics and services for both new build and retrofit offshore projects. Here at Solarglide, we understand the importance of style and functionality and make it our priority to help passengers and crew feel comfortable and well-rested with marine shading solutions that work.
All Solarglide ship curtains are handmade and manufactured in the UK by our experienced curtain production team. Choose your style, fabric type, colour, fullness and backing lining then let our experienced team do the rest.
Choosing the correct marine curtains for your vessel’s interior is an integral part of your cabins design. Solarglide’s curtains provide comfort, privacy and warmth, with light controlling features. Solarglide’s curtains are exported all around the world and can be found on cruise liners, ships, and yachts, globally.
If fabrics are already specified by an interior designer, we will source them on your behalf from our fabric supplier network. We have strong relationships with UK and international fabric manufacturers and mills; tell us what you want, and we’ll do the leg work so you can focus on other things.
Alternatively, we have a selection of maritime fabrics in the ‘Colour Collections’ section below that are IMO FR approved and suitable for most maritime environments. MED approved curtain fabrics are also available by the batch, upon request for more specialist marine outfitting projects.
In the world of marine curtains, we talk about fullness. This refers to the amount of fabric used in a curtain. The more fabric used, the more fullness the curtains have. More fabric equals a richer look, more sound absorption, and more protection from light. While we offer a full range of fullness, for a luxury finish for your cabins and suites, we’d recommend 200% fullness or greater.

Marine Curtains for Oil Rigs and Offshore Module Curtains
Marine curtains are used on oil rigs, accommodation blocks and offshore modules globally. They keep interior spaces cool during daylight hours and improve offshore operations; essential for static platforms that are at the mercy of prolonged sunshine.
Marine Curtains for Offshore Crane Curtains
Marine Curtains can be used on cranes when they are not in use. A curtain helps to keep a cabin cool when the operator clocks off for the day and indicates to others that the crane is not in use at that time.
All fabrics and linings are IMO FR certified.

Pencil pleat curtains are so called because they look like a line of pencils when hung. The folds of the fabric are tightly gathered to create the look and provide a neat and pleasingly uniform look to your curtains.
Pinch pleat curtains use a narrow, short pleat and are ideal where windows are smaller and need a more compact curtain.
Wave curtains have no gathering or pleating across the top. Instead, a twisting curve creates fluid folds to fall directly below the rail.
