Reflex-Rol UK bespoke ATCT shading systems are designed specifically for air traffic control towers, also known as VCR’s (visual control rooms).

The AVIATION system was purposely designed and developed for control towers with all parts being made of aluminium and stainless steel rather than domestic type plastics. Each unit is handmade for a specific window opening, the bottom bar or hembar is weighted taking into account the size of the unit, the angle under which the unit has to run and the type of motorisation used. The bottom bar is then guided up and down by means of either stainless steel wires fitted along the edges of the units or solid stainless steel rods of up to 6mm, again depending on sizes.

Key features

  • Bespoke system for unique shape and plane of VCR windows - wider at the top than the bottom and inclined under an angle of 12-16°.
  • Two different daylight filters available depending on where the tower is situated. More northern latitudes require a slightly darker filter than southern latitudes.
  • Over 95% of systems are motorised with 24, 110 or 230V motors.
  • Reflex-Rol UK sends out its own surveyor and installation team resulting in a turn-key operation for the client.

Filters available

  • Two different daylight filters are available, with the Type AR760 being the most widely used; it has become more or less the industry standard.
  • The slightly darker AR762 would only be used in extreme situations like the Arctic or Antarctic where the sun can be very low all day and glare bounces off the ice and snow.
