Maritime Sheer Curtains

Semi Transparent Decorative Voiles for Ships, Cruiseliners and Yachts

Also known as window voiles, Solarglide’s handmade sheer ship and yacht curtains create an elegant, classic solution where both light and privacy are equally important.

Our sheer window dressings allow natural light to filter through while also providing your passengers an element of privacy. Pair sheers with curtains or blinds and you have the perfect day-to-night solution in all areas of your vessel.

What’s the difference between curtains and sheer curtains?

As the name suggests, sheer curtains are made of transparent fabrics – if you hold them up, you can see through them, and they allow light to penetrate into a room. These are very light curtains that bring an open and airy feel to any interior.

Our standard boat curtains are usually lined or self-lined, meaning they’re not transparent and they’re more of a barrier to light too.

Should you need to fulfil MED requirements on board, we can obtain FR One Sheer fabrics, which are MED approved, on request.

What else do you need to know about sheer curtains?

Sheer curtains work well in layers and provide extra depth to window dressings. While they are translucent, they provide a good level of privacy, preventing people from looking into windows. This means they work exceptionally well when paired with a pair of standard curtains or blinds.

Sheers provide a light and billowy texture for windows, and they diffuse sunlight beautifully too. The fabrics used are lightweight and stylish, lending a touch of elegance and style to any window dressing and create a classy aesthetic to boat interiors.

Not only do they diffuse sunlight, but they shield against insects and dust while blocking out unsightly views and protecting interior fixtures and furniture from the full force of the sun.

 
We provide a range of powder coated aluminium rails. They’re cut to the exact window size and are provided with an end cap and gliders. These come pre-assembled so they’re easy to install.
Hooks include white plastic, rounded and metal depending on the weight and fullness of your curtain choice.
For ease of shipping, our maximum rail length is 2.8m. However, larger widths can be achieved by joining pieces with no hindrance to operation of the rails.
Manual and motorised curtain rails are available.
We offer the complete turnkey package with our curtains.
We have an established, strong relationship with UK and international fabric manufacturers to maintain a high quality, varied range of fabrics for our customers.
Our highly experienced team understands time critical projects.
Every one of our sheer fabrics is IMO FR tested. FR One and MED batch tested fabrics are also available upon request
