Fordingbridge fabric roofing solution

Although they are not the only solutions, Fordingbridge principally utilise two different types of roofing solution for their structures – 16mm triple walled polycarbonate or opal fabric.

Both excel in certain applications; which technology best suits your needs?

Triple walled polycarbonate

Long term weather durability, dimensional stability and excellent toughness make the 16mm triple walled polycarbonate solution an ideal roof glazing material for applications where longevity and safety are at the forefront of the agenda; such as schools. All of our polycarbonate clad structures conform to Class B non fragility standards.

In addition, the product utilises a UV coating that not only protects the technology from degradation but also makes it an ideal choice for playground canopies to protect children from harmful rays.

Opal fabric cover

Our fabric membrane is being utilised more frequently within the structures we design and build, ranging from garden centre retail areas to sport and leisure facilities.

Fabric covering offers many advantages, one contributing reason is that the technology’s translucency provides evenly distributed lighting without glare and shadows. This can be a benefit to plant retail areas for optimal growing conditions and also players and spectators participating in sporting activities. Additionally, due to the fabrics low thermal inertia, heat comfort is greatly improved in both the summer and winter months.

The thermal and light properties also account for significant savings in life time energy costs, meaning that lighting systems are needed far less during a typical year.

Main benefits

  • Weather and UV resistant
  • Durability and stretch resistance
  • Noise reduction and sound insulation
  • Transparency and luminosity
  • High fire ratings
  • 10 year guarantee
