3 on the beaufort scale, lightly cloudy blue sky, a gentle breeze - optimal conditions for a cruise, but every one knows, who has often been at sea, for work or plain pleasure: These things can quickly change.

The warming sun can quickly develop to an annoying heat, a breeze to a storm.

The upcoming sea spray brings with it damp and cold. An idyllic sun set becomes a low standing glaring sun that can hamper a held course in a channel, with overcrowding on the sea lanes, or misplaced buoys it can come to damage or worse.

UV-rays, salty air and fluctuating temperatures can take its toll on the passengers, crew and materials alike.

Our products protect from sun and heat for a safe and comfortable journey.

Our individually fabricated solutions are developed and made from seaworthy materials meeting the high and demanding standards for a life at sea.



HELIOS® Covers, folding tops, sun canopies

Effective sun shading, rain protection, a long life span, UV and mildew resistance, being light weight and having small maintenance needs are the widespread requirements that sun shading systems must meet at sea.

Our textiles achieve not only the necessary requirements; they are also highly tear resistant as well as showing little deformation when under strain. Because of the innovative surface treatment that our composite materials get, they are weather fest and soil resistant which means that even after years at sea they get to keep their good looks

HELIOS® Darkening and blackout rollers

Rollers are a universal solution for sun, light and view protection also for general darkening of cabins. Harbours are well used in the summer months. Quite often mooring spaces are cramped and hard to come by. To keep your privacy below deck, an efficient light and view protection is important.

Even a mooring on a gangway with a badly positioned gangway light can cause a sleepless night without the right light protection.

We offer a large choice of textiles and colours - from transparent sun protection to full blackouts.

HELIOS® Sun blinds

HELIOS® Protection against insects

Insects are always found around small harbours, marshland and coastal areas, only an effective protection can ensure a stress free stay and a good night´s sleep at that place.

A combination of sun and insect protection in one product is possible.

HELIOS® Pleated blinds

Can be used for view protection as well as sun protection at the same time, even light coloured materials can change glaring sunlight into a soft warm light.

Due to the special impregnation, pleated blinds are very well suited for use in bathrooms where light and complete discretion is essential.

HELIOS® Roof hatch shading

The general development towards larger windows is not just ongoing within architecture, in the boatbuilding industry hatches and windows are also becoming larger. Roof hatches do flood compartments with sunlight; on the other hand the developing heat can become unpleasant.

An effective protection can improve comfort and well being under deck, without using the generator or ships batteries.
