The Heat Shield

Micro-Mesh is approached by Occidental Petroleum to prevent flair burn-off heating the sides of oil rigs. Three years later in 1976 the first heat shield is secured to the Piper Alpha oil rig in the Claymore field.

By 1981 the shield is proven to be a success, today there is a shield installed on every oil rig worldwide now better known as the ‘Locker Shield’.
