Trafford Tile Industrial GRP RoofLITE & Sheets

Here at Roofing Superstore we are proud to offer a range of Trafford Tile roof sheets and rooflights from FILON. FILON are a market leader in the manufacturing of GRP products for supply to the construction market, with over 60 years of experience in developing solutions and alternative products, and have created GRP roof sheets in over 900 profiles, to match almost all discontinued and current asbestos roof sheets.

What are Trafford tile roof sheets and rooflights?

The Trafford tile roof sheets and rooflights from FILON have been designed to emulate the profile of fibre cement and asbestos Trafford tile roof sheets. These consist of spaced out peaks combined with flat intermediary sections. 

Trafford tile rooflights are translucent sheets that contain light diffusing additives, unique to FILON, within the GRP material. These additives help to scatter natural light when it passes through the roof light, creating an even spread of daylight through the building, whilst also reducing glare and hotspots. 

Trafford tile roof sheets are grey, as opposed to translucent rooflights, and contain an extra sheet of woven glass to add reinforcement.

Features of Trafford tile roof sheets and rooflights

As well as the light diffusing additives within the rooflights and the extra reinforced sheet within the Trafford tile roof sheets, there are a number of other features that make FILON GRP Trafford tile products a great choice.

The roof sheets and rooflights have excellent impact resistance, making them much safer than other roofing materials to work on. Additionally, the Trafford tile roof sheets in particular have load bearing capabilities in excess of heavier standard weight production.

Another feature of Trafford tile rooflights and roof sheets is the UV resistant polyester film that is fitted to the external weather facing side of the roof sheet. This prevents yellowing, and improves the durable working life of the roof sheet.

Each roof sheet or rooflight is much more lightweight than other roofing materials, meaning that transportation and handling of the roof sheets is quicker and easier than other roof products.

Fixsafe is a safety system that has been patented by FILON, and aims to reduce the number of fatal accidents that occur through falls through fragile roofing materials – a quarter of overall fatal accidents in the construction industry. This fixing system enables roof sheets and rooflights to be fitted from the inside of the building, instead of having to fit it from the outside, using the roof as support. This not only increases safety, but also reduces the installation time and removes the requirement for costly safety netting, roof staging, fall protection and external scaffolding.
