Boat bay doors/RCS Screens/Louvers

Modern warships are more and more a challenging task to design. Speed, survivability, low initial cost and reduced maintanance are just a few of the clashing factors to cope with during ship construction. Emerging requirements like reduced IR and radar signature, shock robustness and increased fire protection ask for innovative materials and enhanced, smarter solutions.


Ship detection, and specifically ship detection by radar waves, is an actual concern of most Navies. Many efforts in design of new naval vessels are devoted to reduce radar signature and to minimize detectability. Low signature increases survivability and self-defence effectiveness.


With PELLEGRINI-MEP components, effective radar reflection management is possible. By controlling scattered emission, just a fraction of it shall revert to the seeker: Whenever openings, recesses and radar hotspots are needed onboard, you shall find an appropriate RCS MEP solution, a tested design, a smarter solution.


Our RCS range includes:

  • Side rescue boat, lateral general handling foldable shutter screens, hydraulically operated for ship’s recesses.
  • Heli hangar and transom doors
  • Mooring hatches and closures
  • Propulsion air intake louvers for diesel and gas turbines power plants
  • Infra Red Suppression System dilution air intake louvers
  • HVAC intake and exhaust vent louvers
  • Ancillary components on exposed decks (stanchions, posts, doors and vents)


The greatest care as been paid in giving the maximum stiffness and strenght to hatches and screens with the minimum weight. The innovative composite material MEP adopted, together with a neat and smooth finish, has about three times lower weight than steel for given strenght. This is the success key for a low weight, easy operation, trouble free performance. All composite and plastic materials are fully qualified by fire tests for no flame-propagating, no smoke and toxic emission behaviour. Standard fire compliance is to AFNOR rule class M1-F1 and AIACS Lloyd’s Register - RINA SOLAS standard.
