ATCT Shades



  • Dark smoke shades for intense glare and heat control, with neutral light transmission ensures light signals are easily seen.
  • Red, yellow and green signal markers are not distorted even at a distance.

  • Five-gauge multi-ply construction shade material is stronger than steel and virtually tear proof.
  • Scratch-resistant shade material so there is less abrasion from air born dust means extended service life.
  • Seesawusa.com's ATCT Shades are mounted on heavy-duty steel rollers, and are built for reliability and durability.
  • Not effected by sub-zero cold or tropical heat and humidity.
  • The ATCT shades are engineered for full vision under severe environmental conditions reducing sun glare, while still preserving the full view out. This allows air traffic controllers to maintain visual contact with both air and ground traffic. Seesawusa.com's FAA approved ATCT shades also allow viewing of computer and radar screens without eye straining glare.

FAA Approved Cord and Cord Locks



Control Towers often have windows that slope toward the outside at the top.

Order screens with FAA Approved Constant Tension Spring Rollers, FAA Approved Cord and Cord Locks and Hardware. This system keeps the screen in constant tension so the shade can be stopped at any up or down position.

Roller screens can be tapered (shaped) on one side or both sides.

Seesaswusa.com uses FAA Aproved multi-directional pulleys:
  • Eliminates need for multiple pulleys
  • Less interference with air traffic control tower equipment
  • Neater, more efficient for controller operation of shades
