Over 2600 linear metres of Filon’s Monarch F GRP barrel vault rooflights were installed during the refurbishment of this major distribution hub in Belvedere, Kent
Staffordshire-based Ascot Property Maintenance Ltd, installed over 2600 linear metres of Filon’s Monarch F 1200mm wide triple skin barrel vault rooflights at this Regional Distribution Centre serving South-East England.
The installation was part of a major refurbishment in which Ascot Property Maintenance also replaced over 10,000m2 of the aluminium roof.
The rooflights were specified with a CEDR24E outer skin, providing a class B non-fragility rating for an expected period of 25 years.
The triple skin construction of these rooflights provides a U value of 1.7 W/m2K – meeting the stringent thermal performance requirements for the building.
On one section of the roof the barrel vaults were supplied in opaque grey GRP, with a white internal finish, to maintain the correct conditions for ambient storage of chocolate products.
The longest rooflights installed on this huge curved roof are over 118m long: among the longest uninterrupted runs ever supplied by Filon Products.
Darren Fletcher of Ascot Property Maintenance said: “We have a long and successful relationship with Filon, having installed their rooflights and sheets on all kinds of buildings, including other LIDL distribution centres.”
