UK-MANUFACTURED INDUSTRIAL ROOFLIGHTS/SHEETS
FILON has been supplying high-quality, industrial rooflights to the building and construction industry for more than 60 years. Our profiled rooflights are made from glass reinforced polyester resin (GRP) – also known as fibreglass – with unique light diffusing additives that scatter light to provide effective daylighting without hot spots, excessive glare or shadow. Available in over 900 different profiles, our products are designed to match all current and most discontinued asbestos cement and metal roofing profiles.

- Impact resistant
- Non-fragile options
- Fire resistant
- Range of colours available

CHOOSING THE BEST ROOFLIGHT SPECIFICATION
At FILON, we offer rooflights with the following options to ensure our customers get the best product for their application. If you would like to go through these options in more detail, please contact one of our expert team to discuss your requirements.
FILON GRP rooflights may be used in single skin and double skin applications, and, where necessary, including insulating intermediate layers to provide improved insulation levels for compliance with current legislation. Our rooflights are available in weight types (with nominal weights):
- CE18 (1.83kg/m²)
- CE24 (2.44kg/m²)
- CE30 (3.06kg/m²)
- CE36 (3.66kg/m²)
FILON rooflights have been tested in accordance with BS 476 parts 3, 6 and 7 and are offered in three fire retardant grades:
- SAB class 3
- SAA class 1
- SAA class 0
For technical advice on which fire grade should be used in specific applications, please refer to FILON Technical Department.
FILON rooflights are most commonly supplied 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 eventually 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. See our Citadel page for more information.
Sheets for external applications are supplied complete with FILON Protect, a highly durable UV resistant polyester film, factory bonded to the weather face. This extends the durable working life of the sheet and the UV resistance limits sheet yellowing.
Other surface protections are available, such as Filon Protect Antiglare which has a matt surface to remove the normally shiny appearance of UV surface protection. This is ideal for opaque sheets but can also be useful in certain rooflight applications. Filon Citadel Plus provides a greater period of protection compared with Filon Protect and is typically supplied with Filon Citadel sheets.
