DR-Refurb sheets are light grey opaque coloured GRP sheets for replacing or overlaying old or damaged profiled asbestos cement roofing sheets.
Filon DR-Refurb sheets are available in translucent or opaque colours as a replacement for old or damaged profiled roofing sheets – including profiles which have been discontinued.
Effective and easy roof repairs
To enhance strength and impact resistance, these sheets incorporate an extra woven reinforcement. This provides a strong composite with sufficient flexibility to enable the sheets to be easily fixed into existing roofs. Filon DR-Refurb sheets were originally designed for replacement of old asbestos cement sheets. However, they are equally suitable for the replacement of metal sheets. They can be used as a direct replacement, or directly laid onto existing damaged sheets – they are strong enough to replace and thin enough to overlay. In either case, this involves removing the fixings and fitting the DR sheet below the roof sheet at the head lap and at the underlapping side lap.
Strong, durable, lightweight roofing
The light weight of Filon DR sheets allow them to be laid over existing damaged sheets without the need for additional structural reinforcement. The additional strength of the sheets reduces the possibility of falling through damaged or broken roof sheets whilst remedial work is being carried out or if anyone accidentally steps on the sheets after the work has been completed.
Fire rated grades available
Filon DR-Refurb sheets are offered in three fire resistant grades, to meet current Building Regulations for Fire Safety.
