Kerry Airport has like most control towers always had an issue with glare and excess heat build up. We were asked by management to source a Solar Blind that would allow the staff to see out perfectly but reduce the solar issues they were having. Film was not an option in this case as it may affect the colouring of the lights on the runway during night time hours.
We came back with a solution, a roller Solar Blind that reduced glare by 97% and Solar Heat Gain by up to 92% and at the same time most importantly allowing the air traffic controllers to see out perfectly even when the blinds were closed.
We installed these blinds to all of the windows of the control tower and it has been a complete success. The Control Tower staff were so happy with the results that they have recommended us to other airports around the country and we are currently tendering for more work in these airports.
