Offshore wind shielding

Galebreaker wind shields are designed to protect personnel and equipment from the harsh weather conditions of offshore environments. Strategically positioned, they can play a critical role as workers use platforms, walkways, staircases, lifeboat stations and muster areas.

Made from extensively tested materials, our wind shields can be installed quickly as either temporary or permanent protection without compromising light transmission or airflow.
