Solar Solve Marine, the British manufacturer of SOLASOLV® anti-glare, heat rejecting roller screens and ROLASOLV® fabric roller blinds for ships, has just won a contract to supply 55 ROLASOLV® screens to the cruise ship Caribbean Princess.

Solar Solve Marine has supplied more than 150,300 screens and roller blinds to over 15,540+ ships worldwide since 1987, and all products are ISO 9001:2008 quality assured. The company’s main product line is the well-known SOLASOLV® range of heat rejecting, anti-glare roller screens for navigation bridge and control room windows. The primary benefit of SOLASOLV® roller screens is to ensure safer navigation by reducing glare so electronic displays and bridge equipment are easier to read whilst providing a clear outward view without eye-strain. ROLASOLV® is the company’s other line of products which include fabric roller blinds and complete blackout blinds for cabins. They are the only fabric blinds in the world to be Type Approved by DNV-GL in accordance with the mandatory IMO FTPC Part 7 A.563(14) Resolution .

Caribbean Princess is owned and operated by Carnival Corporation, the world’s largest cruise ship operator, under their subsidiary Princess Cruises . The ship had the largest passenger carrying capacity in the Princess fleet until June 2013 when the company took delivery of the Royal Princess which superseded her. The Caribbean Princess was also the first modern cruise ship with an outdoor cinema which it bills as “Movies Under the Stars”.

Paul Hopkins, from Solar Solve Marine commented, “Here we have a significant order for a cruise ship to supply our specialist marine grade roller blinds that are specifically designed and Type Approved to be installed on ships sailing on seas in various locations around the world. The ROLASOLV® blinds will help to provide sun shading to the areas in which they are going to be installed when needed.”
