Suppliers of: GRP Corrugated roofing GRP rooflights GRP profiled cladding Hygienic Cladding

Filon Products Limited have, for over 50 years, manufactured translucent Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) rooflights and GRP profiled cladding sheets.

GRP Cladding, Rooflight & Roof Sheet Profiles

Filon now offer more than 1000 different profiles as part of its standard range of GRP rooflights. We are also able to match most metal, fibre cement and cladding profiles enabling Filon to supply not only new GRP rooflights but also to replace broken and degraded rooflights and coloured GRP roof sheets.

The range includes translucent, colour tinted and opaque coloured profiled sheets for single skin roofing systems and double skin site assembled rooflights for use within a twin skin built up roof system.

Filon also manufacture and supply FAIRs, Factory Assembled Insulating Rooflights, for use within composite panel roof systems. The range of rooflights and roof sheets is available in a variety of weights to achieve a Class B non-fragile status and in a range of fire grades: SAB3; SAA1 and SAA0 under BS476 Parts 3, 6 and 7.

Over Roofing Old Profiled & Asbestos Roofs

Filon have also developed a unique method of repairing asbestos cement or fibre cement roofs. Over time profiled cement roofing can degrade, crack and collect moss. Asbestos roofing is expensive to remove and dispose of safely.

Filon’s over roofing system removes the need for dangerous and costly removal whilst improving the thermal efficiency of the roof. As Filon can match nearly any roof corrugated roof profile, Filon’s over-roofing system can be laid over most roofs keeping the original roof sheets in place and allows the incorporation of insulation. This can raise the roof by only either 25mm or 60mm and requires no planning permission as the sheets match the existing profiles.

Replacing Rooflights the Safe Way

Filon’s Fixsafe system has been developed for the replacement of sheeting or rooflights from the underside thereby removing the high risks associated with accessing fragile roofs. This system allows the client, agent and contractors to be able to fully comply with the HSE Working At Height Regulations 2005 when working on fragile roofs as all the work involved in replacing the rooflight or roof sheet completely from within the building. This system can also reduce disruption to the building occupiers and reduce costs as expensive crawler boards, edge protection scaffold and safety netting is not required.

Dome Skylights, Barrel Vault Rooflights & Panel Glazing

Filon’s range of Monarch F GRP barrel vault rooflights are typically used as continuous rooflights in standing seam, low pitch and flat roof applications and are available to suit varying U value requirements and in a range of widths starting at 500mm wide.

Chemical Resistant & Aggressive Atmospheres

Nearly all of Filon’s products are ideal for aggressive, chemical and coastal atmospheres where other materials such as coated steel and aluminium would quickly corrode. Citadel sheets can be tailor made to suit exact site specific conditions. Provide information relating to conditions and contaminates and Filon’s Technical Department will design the resin and surface protection system accordingly to provide life spans of up to 40 years.

Hygienic Cladding

Filon also manufacture flat GRP cladding with a textured surface which is perfectly suitable for hygienic cladding applications such as abattoirs and food preparation areas etc.

Sign Panels

Filon manufacture mpGRP, a flat GRP sheet designed for road signage as an alternative to steel and aluminium. The advantage over the traditional metal products is that there is no scrap value in the GRP sheet so theft is unlikely and GRP is also very resilient to harsh atmospheric / environmental conditions where metal corrosion is likely.

GRP Roof Valley Troughs

GRP roof valleys gutters and Dry Fix valley troughs are manufactured by Filon Products and the range is complemented with a suite of end closures to remove the need for the costly and skilled operation of constructing lead saddles. These simple to fit end closures can be installed by any roofer with a hammer and nails in almost no time at all.

Filon delivers daylight to LIDL Distribution Centre

August 2018

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.”

Refurbishment of roofs and canopies at the iconic Byker Wall estate

April 2018

Filon Products has supplied roofing to access decks and canopies for doorways and covered walkways as part of a refurbishment programme at the Byker Wall Estate in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Designed by notable architect Ralph Erskine and completed in the 1970s, the estate occupies a 200 acre site previously comprising Victorian slum terraced housing. It is is widely recognised as a successful example of urban regeneration and has won many architectural awards.

Today the estate is Grade 2 listed and recent refurbishments have involved careful reinstatement of original features and colour schemes, using modernised materials where possible, while retaining the look and feel of the 1970s design scheme.
Steve Vickers of Filon Products was invited to a site meeting at the estate, to make recommendations for refurbishment of translucent GRP canopies and coloured door canopies in various areas of the estate.

Steve Vickers takes up the story: “We were approached because Filon sheeting had been used over the years for repairs in specific areas although we had never been to site. Different contractors had used various profiles and sheet types with no consistency being applied. The brief from English Heritage was to match the original sheet specification as closely as possible whilst upgrading the non-fragility status keeping in mind that the buildings are Grade 2 listed.

Historical documents and research revealed that the original profile used on roofing to balconies, canopies and covered walkways, was British Alcan A7. We were able to match this profile using our Filon Supasafe triple reinforced sheeting with a Class 1 fire rating.

Original drawings of the door canopies were also provided and we developed as close a profile match as possible using opaque coloured Supasafe with a Class 3 fire rating.”
Following development and production of the sheets, contractors were appointed and further site meetings took place, to agree details such as fastener and sealant specifications.

Work began in early 2014 and progressed smoothly, with completion imminent at the end of 2014.
