Ampelite ClearSlide GC
This is where the Ampelite ClearSlide GC emerges as a highly innovative and cutting-edge solution.
This roofing system uses sophisticated fixing clips which effectively make it possible to combine metal decking with fibreglass roofing without any drawbacks.
ClearSlide GC makes use of metal roll form decking.
Together with the uniquely designed fixing clips, this roofing system attaches fibreglass to the metal decking without piercing or screwing the two together.
As a result, the contraction or expansion of the metal decking takes place without affecting the fibreglass structure.
Aesthetics and Function
In fact, the fibreglass roofing sheets effectively ‘float’ on top of the metal decking.
At the same time, ClearSlide GC installations are absolutely water-proof and result in a finish that is a lot neater and aesthetically pleasing.
Easy to install with large fibreglass sheets over sizable roofing dimensions, ClearSlide GC is the next step in the world of quality fibreglass technologies.
The translucent roofing panels of ClearSlide GC also offer excellent light transmission.
The impeccable quality of these sheets ensures that the clear roof panels transmit a good amount of light over 10 years and more.
We supply and install a wide variety of industrial-grade fibreglass sheeting. You can choose from several varieties depending on your exact needs. All varieties are compatible with metal roofing and cladding profiles. Industrial-grade fibreglass roofing panels come with extra-durable structure and superior light transmission.
SR76 - Fire Retardant
The FS FireCheck comprises an intumescent impregnated glass tissue which is manufactured within the Ampelite sheeting. The chemicals are halogen-free meaning they are nontoxic. The simplicity of the approach to using the tissue and locating it at the surface of the sheet results in no loss of strength or stiffness within the composite section.
The patented ClearSlide fixing clips provide many advantages over normal installation procedures and also allow the combination of metal roll form decking and fibreglass skylighting over long lengths. No longer are two very different materials screwed together in the hope that they will interact, without water ingress, or cause buckling (ocean waving) of the fibreglass
The Ampelite EEFAS panel has been developed to compliment all insulated steel panels as produced through various manufacturers. As a totally integrated composite structure, the Ampelite EEFAS System provides benefits that traditional translucent skylights cannot achieve.
Ampelite, Australia’s most experienced and largest manufacturer of fibreglass roofing introduced ‘Wonderglas GC’ gel coated sheeting to Australia in 1994, adapting the process originally developed by BP chemicals in the United States, to expressly combat Australia’s very harsh environment.
The savings and benefits of natural daylight in the workplace and in recreational facilities can be maximised at a fraction of the cost of dual glazing with Ampelite’s Dual Roof System. This system provides good, evenly diffused natural light, eliminates condensation and reduces transmitted heat.
