FILON FAIRs GRP factory assembled insulating rooflights are manufactured to provide a simple in-plane rooflight solution in composite panel roofs and walls. They are designed to provide high levels of natural light, with double skin rooflights available and triple skin units to provide a range of insulation values to aid compliance with Building Regulations Part L (England and Wales) and Section 6 of the Building (Scotland) Regulations Technical Handbooks. Non-fragility conditions demanded by the Health and Safety Executive CDM requirements are also catered for in the FAIRs range.
Bespoke insulated rooflights to match your needs – precisely
FILON FAIRs can be configured to provide the ideal solution for rooflighting in any profiled roof. UV protected GRP outer sheets can be manufactured to match all current profiles – and most discontinued ones and our advanced tooling techniques enable new tooling to produce bespoke products. The central core can be adapted to provide the level of insulation required. U-values as low as 0.9 W/m²K can be achieved. Lining panels are manufactured from profiled GRP to customer specification.
Tough and durable
FILON FAIRs are fabricated from high quality FILON Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) which is robust, shatter resistant and unaffected by extremes of temperature. Outer skins 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. Under normal conditions, sheet life should be in excess of 30 years. Other enhanced surface protection is available on request.
Accelerated weather tests by an independent test laboratory under Clause 5 of BS EN 1013:1-1998 Part1 have classified FILON FAIRs rooflights as follows:
Clause 5.2: Light Transmission – Category Lo
Clause 5.4 Variation of Yellow Index and Light Transmission
after ageing procedure Classification Ao
These are the highest classifications under this standard.
When used in applications where the rooflights may be subject to mechanical damage or where personnel may need to access roof areas, FILON FAIRs can be specified with heavier weight and stronger weather sheets from the FILON range including double reinforced CEDR24E, CEDR30E and extra strong FILON Supasafe.
Excellent light diffusion
FILON GRP sheets scatter transmitted light, to ensure even light distribution without internal glare, excessive shadow or hot spots. This makes FILON FAIRs ideal for all kinds of applications including areas where natural light is required for working spaces such as factories, commercial buildings, sports halls, stadia, agricultural buildings, and many other applications.
FILON FAIRs are manufactured with FILON translucent GRP sheets that are tested to BS 476 Parts 3, 6 & 7. The normal fire ratings of the sheets used are:
FILON Grade 300 outer: AB to BS 476 Part 3
FILON Grade 104 inner: Class 1 to BS 476 Part 7
FILON Grade 101 that is rated Class 0 to BS 476 Part 6 is also available if required.
