Article 32.02(2) to Article 7.02(5) – Transitional provisions, minimum light transmission of wheelhouse windows
Wheelhouse windows must exhibit a minimum light transmission of 75%. Green tinted windows may be fitted on existing vessels under certain circumstances.
How can the inspection body determine the wheelhouse windows' minimum light transmission?
When assessing light transmission the inspection body can assume that:
a) clear white glass wheelhouse window panes exhibit a light transmission of 75%;
b) green tinted wheel house windows exhibit a light transmission of at least 60%;
c) wheelhouse windows tinted another colour exhibit a light transmission of less than 60%.
Should an inspection body have doubts about the wheelhouse windows’ light transmission, the light transmission is to be investigated using an appropriate measuring instrument for measuring the light transmission of wheelhouse windows on inland waterway vessels.
