The patented FILON Over-Roofing system has been proven in countless diverse applications throughout the UK and Ireland – from factories and industrial units to leisure centres, retail stores and local authority housing. Utilising durable profiled GRP sheets, it is designed to provide a quick, trouble free and economical solution for a new waterproof skin over the existing roof, whatever its condition.
Fast, easy installation
FILON’s Over-Roofing System is supplied to match most existing roof profiles. The patented Profix spacer is unique and designed for easy installation.
The economical solution
Low-cost FILON Over-Roofing saves on-site time to further reduce installation costs.
Asbestos and metal profiles
Most asbestos fibre cement roof profiles can be matched. Subject to enquiry, FILON Over-Roofing may also be used for metal trapezoidal profiles.
Minimal weight – no planning requirement
FILON Over-Roofing is lightweight yet strong and is manufactured to the same profile as the existing roof. It therefore requires no additional structural supports. As the weight of the system is less than that of the potential water absorbed by the existing asbestos cement and fibre cement sheets, there is no requirement for structural calculations. The building will have carried heavier loads under saturation before, but the existing sheets won’t get wet again.
Minimal disruption on-site
Fixed from the outside, FILON Over-Roofing allows total roof refurbishment to be carried out with minimal disruption to building occupants.
Considerably extends the life of the building
FILON Over-Roofing can make building refurbishment a cost-effective alternative to redevelopment with guarantees of up to 30 years depending on the sheet weight selected. For more information please discuss the project with our Technical Services Department.
Glass fibre quilt can be incorporated into the system to improve whole roof insulation values.
Installation costs are minimised
FILON Over-Roofing is a one-fix system, providing significant savings on installation time.
No asbestos handling or disposal problems
FILON Over-Roofing eliminates considerable costs and landfill taxes implemented when asbestos has to be removed.
