Galebreaker wind shields are tailor-made for oil and gas companies, providing protection from the elements whilst also preserving a well-ventilated working environment. Our wind protection is achieved through a single skin in construction, using our patented built-in tensioning technology. The PVC coated, charcoal grey polyester provides 75% wind speed reduction up to a standard 90mph and maximum 120mph. Galebreaker wind shields provide protection against rain, dirt and dust, with all fixings in marine grade stainless steel or a galvanised finish.
The importance of weather protection systems for the power and industrial sectors
As the market-leader in weather protection systems, we use advanced CFD Modelling techniques to accurately determine the right position and porosity of proposed wind reduction systems. We also provide cold weather and winterisation screens for wet and dry cooling applications. These solutions not only improve the thermal efficiency of power plants but help protect equipment from wind and the build-up of ice, which can cause unnecessary downtime and extensive damage to support structures if left unchecked.
