Non-fragile MODEK GRP (Walk - On™)
The new Industrial GRP sheeting also promises 15 years retention of at least 80% clarity, meaning that radiation degradation is kept at bay, which is especially useful for structures that require the additional light. The new colours, which will be added to the existing colour range, are grey, bronze and ice.
Why choose a Non-fragile Roof Sheet?
Many rooflights and metal lining panels are considered to be fragile relative to metal roof sheeting, a fact that all discerning building designers and contractors should take into account when designing access routes for ongoing maintenance of a building or when planning a building project.
Determining the period of non-fragility required
Construction of the roof is one of the most hazardous operations because of the potential falls ormaterial dropping onto people below. Therefore a roofing contractor should plan and document a safe system of work before starting construction, taking into account the fragility of cladding and rooflighting systems. MODEK identifies three different types of roofing in terms of the guidelines set out by NARM (British) Red Book (ACR[M]001:2005):
Match your fixings and rooflights with the performance of the roof
Long-term non-fragility of a rooflight assembly is highly dependent on the long-term durability and performance of all associated components: if these degrade, then the rooflight assembly may become fragile. As such, all components in the roof assembly must be carefully considered to achieve the desired performance.
