Suppliers of: GRP Corrugated roofing GRP rooflights GRP profiled cladding Hygienic Cladding
Filon Products Limited have, for over 60 years, manufactured translucent Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) rooflights and GRP profiled cladding sheets.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
