G1 HEAT SHIELDING
Global 1 are pleased to announce that we have an agreement in place to be the agent and distributor for Locker Heat and Wind Shields for the oil and gas industry, Global 1 can carry out turn key projects, from the initial Survey, to Engineering, Procurement and Installation.
Locker Radiant Heat Shield cladding panels were specifically developed for the safety and protection of personnel and equipment against radiant heat from flares on Oil Rigs and FPSO’s. 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 Shield Cladding Panels are designed to be light in weight and rigidly structured, able to withstand the offshore environment and rough handling. Locker Radiant Heat Shield Panels 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.
The Mini ES Shield is intended for protection of key equipment and in areas where personnel will not come into direct contact with the radiant shields.
Fabric Heat Shielding gives maximum heat protection with minimal additional weight.
Cable Tray Heat Shielding is designed to protect power and equipment cables from the effects of elevated levels of radiant heat
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.
Due to the light weight construction of the Fabric Heat Shielding, Global 1 has in the recent past been able to install the Derrick heat shielding in offshore locations while the rig had been sitting just off location, the installation process is fast, efficient and requires no cranage for installation.
