Radiant Heat Shielding
Locker Radiant Heat and Weather Shield cladding panels were specifically developed for the safety & protection of personnel and equipment against radiant heat from flares on Oil Rigs and FPSOs. Since the product was introduced to the market place in 1976, on the Claymore platform in the Forties field, the applications have expanded into weather shielding and many onshore and even architectural applications, with continuous product improvements to give even higher levels of protection, coupled with reduced weight and increased strength.
Locker Radiant Heat and Weather Shield Cladding Panels are designed to be light in weight and rigidly structured, able to withstand the offshore environment and rough handling. They are passive in construction, and have no moving parts. Support services such as water, electricity, pipe work and monitoring devices etc. are unnecessary.
The "Ladder" shield consists of dual skin shielding media attached to both sides of a ladder frame to provide maximum protection in areas where personnel may come into contact with the shield.
"Mini" type shields are designed primarily for equipment protection but are increasingly being used as Wind Shields providing an effective barrier against the Harsh offshore environments.
"Flare Deck Grid Flooring" consists of an open grid serrated floor bolted to heavy duty woven mesh ladder type heat shield to provide an effective barrier between the flare tip and supporting structure of the Flare Deck. The Flare Deck Grid Flooring has been developed to replace traditional 'Fire Brick' style constructions.
On-site surveys using up-to-date heat flux and wind speed measuring equipment can be provided if required. This ensures that the correct product is specified and any potential problems are avoided.
On completion of the site survey, a full report with detailed recommendations from Locker will be submitted.
In addition to Site Surveys and Consultancy, Locker also offer on-site installation supervision by qualified engineers.
