Insulating Rooflights to Enhance Natural Light
FILON FAIRs GRP factory assembled insulating rooflights are manufactured using high-quality FILON Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) 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 and triple skin rooflights available to provide a range of insulation values. FILON GRP sheets scatter transmitted light, to ensure even light distribution without internal glare, excessive shadow or hot spots.

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.
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 enhanced reinforced weather sheets for single skin or multiple layer rooflight or wall light assemblies:
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: Class 0 to BS 476 Part 6 is available for enhanced fire performance
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. Enhanced surface protection is available on request.
