FILON standard profiled GRP rooflights and sheets

FILON rooflights are manufactured from glass reinforced polyester resin (GRP), with unique light diffusing additives which scatter light passing through, to provide effective daylighting without hot spots or excessive glare. They are available in over 900 different profiles, to match all current and most discontinued asbestos cement and metal roofing profiles.

FILON GRP rooflights may be used in single skin and double skin site assembled applications and where necessary, including insulating intermediate layers to provide improved insulation levels for compliance with current legislation. FILON GRP rooflights are available in various weights including 1.83kg/m², 2.44kg/m², 3.06kg/m² and 3.66kg.m².

FILON rooflights have excellent impact resistance and are supplied with a highly durable UV resistant polyester film to the weather face. This extends the durable working life of the sheet and the UV resistance limits sheet yellowing. Under normal conditions, sheet life should be in excess of 30 years.

FILON standard range of profiled rooflights and sheets are available at weights required to provide Class C and Class B non-fragile ratings in accordance with ACR(M)001:2011.

FILON sheets are supplied to length to suit customer requirements. Sheet width will be determined by the profile matched.

Fire resistance
FILON rooflights have been subjected to tests in accordance with BS 476 and are offered in three fire retardant grades, up to Class 0. For technical advice on which fire grade should be used in specific applications please refer to FILON Technical Services Department.

FILON rooflights are supplied as standard as natural translucent GRP sheets. Colour tints can be offered in almost any colour, and as more colour tint is added the sheet becomes semi opaque and subsequently opaque in that colour. Opaque sheets can be used for many applications including the repair / replacement of asbestos cement roofs; as permanent cladding and also in corrosive environments where steel sheeting would be unsuitable.
