Webglas GC Woven Mat Reinforced Fibreglass Sheeting
Heavy-duty, chemically resistant fibreglass roofing panels offer unprecedented skylight strength
Ampelite’s Webglas GC answers the call for large scale industrial facilities that require stable, high strength translucent fibreglass paneling that can support both indoor and rooftop activity.
Manufactured in 3660 g/m2 weights, Webglas GC offers secure, low maintenance mounting to roofing and cladding without the need for wire safety meshes. It provides excellent structural strength for large skylight designs, specially formulated to resist heavy weathering and degradation. Like our WonderGlas and Cool-lite product lines, Webglas GC features our revolutionary gel coating for superior protection against UV exposure when compared to traditional surface films.
Rooftop Fibreglass Materials for Extreme, Chemically Corrosive Environments
Webglas GC incorporates the highest quality vinyl ester resins available on the market today. They are formulated to repel a wide range of corrosive attacks that are typically encountered in facilities such as fertilizer and agricultural plants, chemical and petrochemical facilities, and marine buildings.
Our Webglas GC products shield commercial business rooftops from chemical byproducts such as acids, solvents, and alkalines.
In addition, Webglas GC will maintain its structural integrity while subjected to aggressive, metal-based corrosion on cladding, ridges, and purlins.
Translucent Fibreglass Panels for Trafficable Areas and Rooftop Access
Reinforced, heavy gauge woven glass mat provides the structural integrity necessary for wide area roofing skylights. Thanks to its excellent strength, standard wire safety meshes are not necessary for Webglas GC translucent roofing panels. The panels feature continuous, multi-directional fibreglass filament strands that act as its own safety mesh. Our fibreglass panel technology offers exceptional flexural, impact and tensile strength per length of sheet, making it an economical choice for public areas such as convention centers, galleries, stadiums, and skylights.
Maximum UV Protection Repels Rooftop Surface Erosion
During the curing process, our innovative gel coating is mated to the resin sheet, forming a single body panel. Webglas GC resins are both UV stabilized and acrylic modified for resistance to weathering in demanding environments. Other plastic roofing materials are unable to maintain adequate light transmission over longer periods of time, even when paired with thin surface films. Webglas GC is available in Ice Clear, Opal
Low Maintenance Roofing Materials
Webglas GC fibreglass roofing panels meet all Class 2 to Class 9 building requirements set forth by the Building Code of Australia.
Backed by a 20-year warranty that also covers surface erosion, Webglas GC provides a value-added combination of strength, chemical and weathering resistance for commercial rooftops.
Regular cleaning is all that’s required, applying standard water and soap detergents in order to maintain the product’s original roofing sheet luster.
Ampelite’s fibreglass roofing products are a preferred choice by industries that require long-term quality, safety, and building efficiency.
Our veteran staff will develop a suitable roofing panel configuration that aligns with your building’s application needs and preserves your investment.

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.
