The Topglass Fire Retardant (FR) range is designed and supplied as fire and smoke retardant natural lighting and cladding solutions for use in commercial and industrial buildings. Alsynite offer different grades of Fire Retardant translucent sheeting and cladding: Topglass FR25 (specifically for cooling tower applications); Topglass FR50 (NZBC Group 3); and Topglass FR60 (NZBC Group 2). All Alsynite and Laserlite branded polycarbonate sheeting is NZBC Group 1-S.
Topglass FR50 meets the requirements of the NZBC verification method C/VM2 appendix A and NCC specification C1.10. Topglass FR50 is a fire retardant Bromine Free resin system also with a NZBC group 3 classification. Topglass FR50 is offered with either a 20umUV film or Alsynite EXO-SET 206 Gelcoat weather protection system.
Topglass FR60 being full blown Fire Retardant GRP roofing and cladding material is self extinguishing therefore exceeding the requirements of the NZBC verification method C/VM2 appendix A and NCC specification C1.10.
Topglass FR50 and Topglass FR60 are supplied with the Alsynite Exo-Set 206 Gelcoat SPF enhanced Gelcoat system. These products are supplied as translucent roofing products and are now available offering increased solar values, as can be experienced with Topglass GC SPF4 (see Topglass SPF pg 10 Topglass catalogue March 2015). The SPF enhancement stabilises the product’s appearance, offering increased weather surface stability and colour retention.
