Reasons for Skylights

The most obvious reason to have skylight panels installed is that they allow natural light to enter your work environment. The natural light creates a positive and upbeat working environment for all concerned.

Happy workers are more productive. 

Benefits of Skylights

The savings on your electricity costs can be game changing, especially in large warehouse and factory spaces.

When your light panels are clear or translucent, you can virtually turn your lights off. All this while protecting the inside space from the outside elements. It just makes good sense all around.

Scheduled Replacement

Although the benefits of installing skylight panels may be obvious, what is less apparent is the need for scheduled replacement. When your light panels start to degrade and the surface frays, dirt, moss and other contaminants start to accumulate and integrate into the substrate of your panels, accelerating panel destruction. The light transference is greatly reduced and their effectiveness is drastically diminished.

When light panels are replaced, the affects are immediate and dramatic.

It is as if someone has turned the lights back on…..literally!

New light panels start paying for themselves from day one.

Fibreglass Roofing Panels

In the 1960’s, fibreglass composites were slowly introduced as a base material for shingles in private home construction thanks to its lighter weight and flexibility. As advancements in polymer resin and fibreglass manufacturing took shape, larger, more dimensionally stable, clear roofing products were made available for commercial businesses and warehouses. Further progress saw the introduction to varying degrees of light transmission and UV protection for all types of clear, translucent, coloured and opaque roofing options.

By either limiting or maximizing the amount of natural light that passes through fibreglass panel roofing, commercial facilities can lower energy bills, control temperatures and offset their operations with natural sunlight. Today, plastic roofing sheets now accommodate a broader spectrum of structural and environmental tolerances than ever before, virtually eliminating the need for maintenance when properly installed or integrated into existing industrial roofs.

Types of Fibreglass Roofing Panels on the Market Today

Fibreglass panels offer exceptional cost vs. performance value over materials such as wood, vinyl, aluminium, steel, PVC, and polycarbonate roofing sheets. While there are PVC roofing materials and polycarbonate panels that share similar characteristics, serious consideration is necessary when comparing the overall strength, weight, and light transmission factors for clear roof sheeting made from fibreglass.

Corrugated vs. Flat Roofing Sheets

Fibreglass corrugated roofing panels, along with flat plastic sheets, are available with numerous shape and size profiles. Either one can be custom manufactured, cut-to-order and engineered with the same material and protective characteristics.

Flat roofing sheets are commonly used for homes, public spaces, and small businesses, protecting outdoor areas from the elements while permitting varying degrees of light and heat. Many flat roofing sheets are surface coated with colors and tints. Decks, patios, greenhouses, parks, and restaurants can utilize flat sheeting panels for both practical and aesthetic applications.

Corrugated roofing sheets primarily serve commercial warehouses, factories, manufacturing plants, farms and other industrial buildings. Corrugated profiles feature rib designs that vary by manufacturer and typically depend on the roof’s geometry, pitch and mounting method for installation. They can also be overlapped when installed for increased holding strength and water tightness. Corrugated roofing provides better overall roof drainage from water or snow when compared to flat roofing panels.

Dimensional Stability

Competing plastic roofing products made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and polycarbonate have greater susceptibility to dimensional changes over time. Excessive exposure to sunlight and temperature fluctuations will eventually lead to warping in products such as polycarbonate roofing panels or corrugated PVC roofing. Even when mounted according to exact specifications, warping produces changes in the profile of the roofing panel, leaving it prone to cyclic expansion and contraction. This will ultimately lead to cracking. Fibreglass roofing products feature a lower coefficient of thermal expansion when compared to other plastic sheeting options for roofs.

Light Transmission

Every clear, opaque, transparent or translucent roofing material on the market today carries some type % rating that measures light transmission. The higher the percentage, the greater the amount of light that can pass through the roofing panel. This rating is a function of both material thickness and composition, taking into account how much light is actually reflected away (rather than absorbed) off both the front and back of the panel. For example, Plexiglas roof panels carry an average rate of 92% (4% on the top of the panel and 4% on the bottom). This is as good, if not better than glass roofs and skylights. In either case, both are more expensive, heavier and difficult to install. In comparison, polycarbonate and PVC roof sheeting have a lower rating of or below 88%, especially as thickness increases.

Thanks to the manufacturing process for fibreglass roofing sheets, the combination of polymer resins and fibreglass strands allows for up to a 90% light transmission rating. With semi-translucent colours such as white or green, light transmission is considerably easy to achieve and yields better results than either polycarbonate plastic sheets or PVC roofing panels. The addition of UV protective polyester resins, custom mixed with fibreglass material, reduces colour shift, yellowing, cracking and other UV-based wear and tear.

Mechanical Strength & Weight

Strong and lightweight, fibreglass roofing products offer mechanical advantages that make them a preferred choice for industrial buildings. Fibreglass strands are molded into the sheet with unidirectional, continuous filament strands, reinforcing each sheet for good tensile, impact and flexural strength. These clear roofing panels feature lower thermal expansion than polycarbonate sheets, steel materials, and aluminum roofing panels. Properly installed, clear fibreglass roofing panels support weight from snow, withstand hail impact and maintain stability in high winds.

Chemical, Corrosion and UV Resistance

Depending on the type of UV resin, clear roofing panels made from fibreglass offer superior chemical and corrosion resistance when compared to alternatives such as polycarbonate or PVC sheets. There are various polyester and vinyl ester resins that can be added in order to tailor performance, enabling commercial warehouse roofs to stand up to severe weather, vapour or chemical corrosion, and UV resistance. In addition, clear plastic roofing sheets can resist algae buildup or the effects of salt water corrosion. Unlike steel or aluminum metal roofing panels, industrial facilities do not have to worry about rust or oxidation that may affect seams, bolts, cladding and seals.

Water Drainage & Leak Prevention

All corrugated plastic roof panels, regardless of PVC, polycarbonate or fibreglass, feature custom-molded profiles in an array of ribbed or waved shapes. This offers tremendous advantages over flat plastic sheets, eliminating water or snow accumulation and allowing for a smooth, unhindered drainage outlet. In addition, when properly installed and sealed, overlapped corrugated plastic sheeting materials further reduce the possibility of roof leakage.

Ease of Installation & Maintenance

Clear plastic roofing materials using fibreglass can be drilled, nailed, cut and sawed without residual damage. Because of its lighter weight, handling and installing each transparent sheet onto a rooftop is comparatively easier and more labor efficient. Metal and aluminum roofing sheets carry greater cost, weight and installation considerations. Fibreglass materials do not require any specialized products for cleaning, only water and detergent.

Design Flexibility

While manufacturers carry standard product lines with inherent features, most translucent fibreglass roofing panels are modified or customized to address a specific application need. This can be done at the production level, via custom resin formulations, protective film applications and proprietary gel coatings. From clear visibility to solid grey or translucent green, an assortment of colours are manufactured with varying light diffusion properties. Characteristics such as UV protection, light transmission, temperature control and tints are available, even across different product lines. Corrugated roofing panels feature custom rib profiles that can exhibit varying degrees of wind loading, stiffness, impact resistance and durability.

Cost Considerations

Fibreglass roofing materials are superior in affordability than PVC, polycarbonate, and acrylic per square foot. When planning on a roofing system for commercial businesses and warehouses, fibreglass sheeting helps lower labour costs due to reduced weight and ease of handling.
