As boat owners increasingly expect comfort and style combined with technology, Oceanair’s Roller Collection provides blind and shading solutions to exceed expectations. Already used widely in luxury yachts and superyachts globally, roller blinds are becoming more popular on smaller yachts due to their compact, discrete and practical design, excellent shading qualities and easy functionality when space is at a premium. The Oceanair Roller Collection offers a soft window treatment option that provides boat owners with a perfect combination of privacy, security and optimum control of heat and light, without obscuring the view.
Fast becoming the standard choice due to efficiency and ease, Oceanair’s range of Roller blinds, with the exception of the Windowshade Precision, can be operated with a powered system. This ensures latest technologies and trends are used to give a personalized atmosphere as the systems can synchronize and control multiple powered blinds throughout any boat. Manual alternatives offer simple control through chain drives, including friction locks and decelerators so when the blind is unlatched the blind rolls up slowly and can be positioned at any chosen level.
Oceanair offers four designs in the Roller Collection. The Openshade is a classic roller blind solution providing an excellent cost-effective option. Easy to install and operate, the Openshade can include guide wires to stabilize the fabric whilst in motion or at sea. The Windowshade 1 is a functional and stylish roller blind with a unique zip system welded along the length of the roller blind fabric, ensuring wind resistance and minimum light seepage. It is available with curved dual tracks for combining a day and night blind in one as well as curved apertures.
The Windowshade 2 and the newly launched Windowshade Precision are cassette roller blinds mounted into their own framework with the edging of the fabric retained in the side tracks ensuring reduced light seepage, blackout and complete privacy when closed. The manually controlled Windowshade Precision blind sees the addition of a friction lock – replacing the need for a traditional chain or cord control mechanism, thus meaning the blind can slide and hold and be left in any desired position.
Choice and possibility is further enhanced through the Oceanair Fabric Collection which has been specially selected so there is something to suit every interior. Fabrics ranging from sheer, which take away the glare of the sun, to blackout fabric that will completely block out the light, in a vast range of textures and colours are available.
Oceanair’s Roller Collection is built to personal specifications to suit every onboard aperture. No matter the challenge or window size, Oceanair’s 20 years of experience and award winning team will find a solution. The valued ‘Turnkey’ solution service means each client and project will receive dedicated expert attention from concept and creation to installation and completion.
