Benefits of SOLASAFE sunscreens include:

  • Improved visibility and safety − optimal glare protection with up to a 93% reduction to ensure clear visibility and a safer working environment. True colour rendition so navigation marks and objects can be easily identified.
  • Reduced eye strain − problems with glare and reflection on electronic charts, radar screens and control panels are eliminated.
  • Create a more comfortable working environment and reduce air conditioning requirements − up to 87% of the sun's heat is rejected so staff, operators and controlers are more alert.
  • Protect exposed areas of the body − at least 97% of harmful UV light is filtered.
  • Save fuel, save money and reduce CO2 emissions on board marine vessels- Less demand is placed on bridge air-conditioning systems which require additional fuel consumption to run so environmentally conscious fleet owners can benefit from fuel savings resulting in lower costs.
