Fire Retardent Fibreglass Roof Panels

Fires are one of the most frequent hazards in industrial and manufacturing units. Natural hazards like bush fires also pose a significant risk to such structures. Conventional roofing usually becomes a fuel source during a fire outbreak.

Heat Resistant Qualities

In contrast, Fire-Retardant fibreglass roofing sheets suppress the spread of the fire and serve as a highly effective smoke retardant as well.

This particular variety of fibreglass is available in clear and opaque formulations. The clear translucent variety allows natural light to illuminate a building’s interior and blocks out UV rays.

The opaque formulation is achieved through a fibre reinforced polyester formula and offers superior UV protection.

 

Fire-retardant fibreglass roofing panels and sheets are manufactured using a specific polyester resin. This particular resin is very effective in reducing smoke generation. It also prevents the fibreglass roofing panels from being used as a fuel source by the fire. As the panels do not catch fire, they also play an effective role in suppressing the fire and preventing it from spreading to other areas.

This particular variety is available in simple as well as corrugated fibreglass roofing. No matter the shape, size, metal sheet profile and other specifications of your roof, we have the right profile to match your needs.

FS-Firecheck

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.

Clearslide

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
