Ladder Shield

Ladder Shield


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, such as Stair tower and Derrick areas.

Robust construction - primary radiant shielding incorporates heavy duty woven mesh for maximum heat flux reduction.

Key Features

  • Heat flux reduction in excess of 80% at 300mm.
  • Rolled Hollow section framework gives high resistance to wind buffeting.
  • All stainless steel type 316L construction.
  • Able to withstand continuous thermal cycling.
  • Excellent light transmission and ventilation.
  • Good protection against wind and snow.
  • Quick on site installation and removal, supplied complete with all necessary A4 Stainless Steel fasteners.
  • Mesh proven to reduce wind speed by over 70%

Corrugated Shield

Corrugated Shield


The Locker Corrugated Wind Shield is used as a permanent solution for the protection of both personnel and equipment from the harsh weather conditions experienced both onshore and offshore in the Oil and Gas Industry.

Product Features


With an open area of 32%, the corrugated shield reduces radiant heat by over 80% behind the heat shield.

Manufactured from perforated 316L Stainless Steel, the heat shield panel is available in both single and double layer constructions, which can be used for a wide range of applications.

It is predominantly used where large repetition of panel sizes is required, and offers numerous connection options.

Whilst providing excellent protection against the effects of radiant heat, the heat shield also acts as an extremely effective wind shield barrier.

Key Features

  • Heat flux reduction in excess of 80% at 300mm
  • All Stainless Steel Type 316L construction
  • Able to span large distances up to 3m between supporting steelwork
  • Wind efficiency 62% (72% with additional layer)
  • Successfully load tested to wind speeds in excess of 140mph
  • Excellent light transmission and ventilation
  • Quick on-site installation and removal
  • Supplied complete with all necessary A4 Stainless Steel fasteners and isolation materials
  • Also ideal for permanent wind and weather protection.
