Filon Products Limited have, for over 50 years, manufactured translucent Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) rooflights and GRP profiled cladding sheets.
GRP Cladding & Rooflight Profiles
Filon now offer over 900 different profiles as part of its standard range of GRP rooflights. We are also able to match most European metal, fibre cement and cladding profiles enabling Filon to supply not only new GRP rooflights but also replace broken and degraded rooflights. The range includes single skin translucent 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 the HSE require the least disturbance of asbestos roofing and prefer safe containment instead of removal.
Filon’s over roofing system satisfies these requirements and at the same time can improves 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 and allows the incorporation of insulation. This can raise the roof by only 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 dangers of working on 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.
