A Hybrid product derived from Topglass® GC Ultrasafe with the additional feature of Solid Colours used to manufacture Topclad® GC. Topclad® GC Ultrasafe can be installed in most highly corrosive industrial sites and areas where there is a danger to foot traffic on the roof. Due to these concerns Alsynite One NZ developed the heavy duty, high impact roof system to alleviate concerns of walking on Fibreglass structured roofing.

Topclad® GC Ultra-Safe utilises the same heavy duty, woven roving reinforcing system as Topglass® GC Ultrasafe with the additional features of a solid colour pigment added to the Gel-Coat layer to Formulate a corrosive resistant cladding system for use as an innovative replacement for traditional materials.

 

Applications

  • Areas where there is a danger of persons climbing onto a roof
  • Fertiliser Plants

  • Wool scouring facilities

  • Salt Extraction Facilities
  • Severe marine environments
  • Wood Pulp and Paper Plants
  • Fertiliser buildings
  • Poultry and animal sheds
  • Acid plants and smelters
  • Galvanising plants

Topclad® GC Ultra-Safe is classified as heavy duty, meets the impact test of AS 4040.4, satisfying the requirements of AS 4256.3, and can support foot traffic, long term degradation and or post roof installation impact damage can seriously affect the performance of the sheeting. In order to comply  with the requirements of AS 1562.3:2006 Part 3 Plastic, protect the weather surface coating and provide continual structural strength, all FRP products should be protected from foot traffic,  therefore a suitable proprietary aluminium walkway is always recommended. Consult Alsynite One NZ Ltd for recommended systems.
