The ATCT shading systems by Reflex-Rol (U.K.) are bespoke systems, designed specifically for the unique shape and plane of windows in Air Traffic Control Towers, also known as VCR’s (Visual Control Rooms).






The Reflex-Rol solar shading system is ideally suited for buildings with overheating and glare issues such as: office environments, large glazed areas, hospitals, schools, private and public buildings.


The systems maintain 20/20 vision outwards whilst helping to achieve carbon reduction levels to 2020 requirements using high capacity, micro-embossed, reflective foils that can be equal in performance to externally fitted blind systems.


A particular specialisation of the company is Air Traffic Control Towers and control rooms.

ATCT / VCR Shading from Reflex-Rol (UK)

The ATCT shading system by Reflex-Rol U.K. are bespoke systems, designed specifically for Air Traffic Control Towers, also known as VCR’s (Visual Control Rooms).

The unique shape and plane of VCR windows demand bespoke systems, wider in the top than the bottom and usually inclined under an angle of between 12 to 16 degrees.

REFLEX-ROL U.K. has designed and over the years perfected the ATCT or VCR shading systems, resulting in installations as far afield as Vietnam, Mexico, Mozambique, Moldova, Gran Canaria and of course, many towers across Europe.


Two different daylight filters are available and their uses largely depend on where the tower is situated. More Northern latitudes require a slightly darker filter than the more Southern latitudes.


Over 95% of systems are motorised with 24V, 110V or 230V motors, depending on the Country’s standard supplies.

REFLEX-ROL U.K. sends out its own surveyor and installation team. This results, for the client, in a ‘turn-key’ operation.
