Solarglide pleated hatch and roof blinds are available as a manually operated multistop draw system, which can house a single pleated blind or a double pleated blind combination. The blind acts as a sun barrier, controlling incoming light and glare through overhead marine windows.
For a single pleated blinds system, choose from either a blackout fabric, a dimout fabric or an insect screen. We offer eight blackout colours, seven dimout colours and one insect fabric (black); these colours are shown in the ‘Colour Collections’ section below. Alternatively, if you seek a double screen, you can select two blinds, again choosing between a blackout screen, dimout screen, or an insect screen. The same FR pleated fabric colour range applies to both single and double screens.
These blinds can be manufactured to any given size, however there are maximum restrictions in place; the maximum width we can offer is 1200mm, and the maximum height is 2500mm. These restrictions are due to the universal width sizes of the pleated material.
Solarglide uses FR honeycomb pleated technology for instant glare reduction and to regulate thermal performance. Solarglide’s honeycomb technology eliminates visible strings and unsightly holes that can normally be seen in standard pleated blinds. Furthermore, the frame profiles are available in white or dark brown.
Cruiseliners and Ferries Standard Pleated Hatch Blinds
Solarglide framed pleated blinds are an effective and sophisticated shading solution for non-navigational windows onboard cruise ships and ferries , including standard or hard to reach roof windows. They offer high levels of glass coverage for those windows where a roller blind or a curtain may not be appropriate. Designed solely for rectangular and square windows, this product offers a choice of blackout, dimout or insect screen materials in a single or double blind combination.
Yachts and Superyachts Standard Pleated Hatch Blinds
Hatch and roof windows are extremely common onboard yachts and superyachts; so, it’s important that these windows are covered effectively to prevent prolonged glare and sunshine flooding into the interior space from above. Because such roof and hatch windows are often left open to regulate temperature and keep those inside cool, Solarglide pleated blinds can also act as a barrier against unwanted flies and insects. Designed solely for rectangular and square windows, this product offers a choice of blackout, dimout or insect screen materials in a single or double blind combination.
