Topglass GC Ultra-Safe addresses industry concerns relating to natural-light roofing being classified as 'brittle' and being a danger to foot traffic on the roof. It’ manufactured with a heavy-duty, woven roving reinforcing system that is positioned within the resin matrix to provide exceptional strength.
Topglass GC Ultra-Safe Features and Benefits
Topglass® GC Ultra-Safe is manufactured using heavy-duty woven roving enclosed within the resin matrix, to provide structural capability not normally available with traditional translucent roofing materials
It meets the impact strength tests of AS/NZS 4040 and satisfies the requirements of AS 4256.3, eliminating the need for safety mesh to be installed under the sheeting. This is especially beneficial to building designers who encounter issues with corrosive atmospheres damaging the safety mesh zinc coating
Because the roving matrix runs both longitudinally and laterally within the sheet, Topglass® GC Ultra-Safe demonstrates exceptional high impact strength
A 130um* Exo-set 206 Premium Gelcoat surface provides long term light transmission and is supported by a 20 year weather surface structured warranty
Corrosion-resistant when installed in a wide range of aggressive environments
Excellent spanning capabilities.
