Corrugated Fiberglass Roofing
Typical FRP Corrugated Fiberglass Panels come in a translucent color of clear, white or green to allow light transmission flow into any building or sky lighting your roofing application. Fiberglass reinforced polymer (FRP) corrugated panels remain virtually unaffected in many chemical environments. These Corrugated Fiberglass panels are strong, durable, shatter resistant and will not rust, rot, scale or mildew. These panels are commonly specified for use as roofing and siding by industrial engineers. The panels we can offer in either fiberglass or plastic will have the same look and feel as the corrugated roofing or siding panel profiles we offer in our metal sheets. Therefore, when installing a job that uses a galvanized corrugated or Rib panel, the FRP panel will be used in conjunction with that metal panels to allow natural sunlight into your structure. Fiberglass reinforced polymer (FRP) panels remain virtually unaffected in many chemical environments. These panels are commonly specified for use as roofing and siding by industrial engineers.
Fiberglass panels are strong, durable, and shatter resistant. They have a high strength to modulus ratio and therefore offer maximum performance coupled with a natural resiliency. FRP panels are particularly effective in the high impact conditions and repeated (cyclic) loadings associated with normal wind storms.
Diffused Light Transmission
FRP- Fire Snuf 25A (FR) and Acryloy (Non-FR) panels are translucent panels that provide soft diffused transmitted light. You can also select from a number of colors and a range of light transmissions. And translucent Tred-Safe not only lets light in; it’s strong enough to walk on
Tred-Safe, CR Fire Snuf 25A and Fire Snuf 25A all carry the Underwriters’ 25 Flame Spread Rating. Resolite RFM panels are isophthalic resin based panels that have passed the Factory Mutual 25 and 50 foot Corner Test and meet the criteria for walls, roofs, and ceilings without height or area limitations and without sprinkler protection.
FRP panels are naturally resilient and will withstand large deflections associated with normal load and impact conditions without suffering damage. They return to their original shape when the loading is removed. These resilient panels can withstand deflections well beyond those which will deform a metal panel. The unique balance of glass fiber reinforcement and polyester resin permit designs which maximize both panel in place performance and load capacity without sacrificing functional requirements. Constant quality checks, including small and full-scale structural testing, and over 50 years of successful on-the-job experience have proved that these panels perform even in the most severe windstorms. Leaks and premature panel or fastener related failures are not a problem when panels are properly installed and limited by the L/D criteria established in ASTM D 3841.
Good Weathering Characteristics
Fiberglass panels have "built-in" ultra-violet and weather protection. There is no need to apply costly coatings or films. The combination of four decades of production experience, acrylic modification, quality resin components and – more recently – C/W Barrier protection combine to yield a uniquely durable panel.
This type of panel offers a wide range of manufacturing and technical capabilities to meet specific needs. Panels are available in both polyester and vinyl ester resin formulations combined with a variety of glass fiber reinforcements. We can combine these materials and panel weights to meet various functional or structural requirements. FRP panels are available in a wide range of colors, finishes and profiles; are adaptable to many building applications for roofs and walls; and are easily installed using conventional construction methods.
