FILON Supasafe and DR reinforced profiled GRP rooflights

Introduction
For applications where increased strength and resistance to mechanical damage is required, FILON offers two grades of reinforced rooflights:

FILON DR (double reinforced) rooflights
FILON DR rooflights are manufactured from polyester resins and glassfibre, with an additional reinforced woven glass layer compared with conventional GRP rooflights. They have been assessed in accordance with ACR(M)001-2011 ‘Test for Fragility of roofing assemblies. Under this classification, they are rated Class B when used in a single skin application or forming part of a multi-layer assembly such as FAIRs and site assembled insulating rooflights.

FILON Supasafe (triple reinforced) rooflights
FILON Supasafe rooflights are manufactured from polyester resins and glassfibre, with two additional reinforcement layers compared with conventional GRP rooflights. They have been assessed in accordance with ACR(M)001-2005 ‘Test for Fragility of Roofing Assemblies. Under this classification, they achieve a Class B Non-Fragility rating providing comparable impact resistance and load bearing capabilities to 0.7mm steel sheet.

Excellent resistance to weathering
FILON reinforced GRP rooflights are supplied with a highly durable protective film to the weather surface. This extends sheet life and reduces yellowing. Under normal atmospheric conditions, life expectancy should be in excess of 30 years.
Independent accelerated weathering tests completed under ISO 4892 and EN 1013-1 1997, confirm that FILON reinforced rooflights meet the highest durability classification under this standard.

Light transmission
FILON DR and Supasafe rooflights provide excellent levels of light transmission similar to that of standard translucent GRP rooflights.

Accurate profile matching to steel sheet
As FILON Supasafe and DR rooflights are manufactured using a highly sophisticated and carefully developed process, the end result is a much thinner sheet compared with alternative manufacturers’ which provide similar levels of impact resistance and load bearing capabilities. This much thinner sheet enables us to manufacture rooflights and roof sheets with a very accurate profile definition enabling much more successful sealing between side and end laps.

Fire resistance
FILON reinforced rooflights are manufactured in three alternative fire retardant grades that provide compliance with the Building Regulations for Fire Safety.

Wide range of profiles and options
FILON reinforced rooflights are available in a wide range of commonly used roofing profiles. Special colour tinted rooflights can be supplied to special order.
