Fire Resistance Products can be manufactured to either:

  1. General purpose (GP) grade (all products)
  2. BS 476 Part 7 Class 1 (all products)
  3. BS 476 Part 6 Class ‘O’ (all products)
  4. BS 476 Part 7 Class 2 (all products)
  5. BS 476 Part 22 ½ hour fire rating (Fybagard to Class 1/0 only)
Thermal Co-Efficient Of Expansion 30 x 10^(-6) / °C
FACT: Compared with many other plastics GRP has minimal expansion and contraction
characteristics and will not bow and warp in extremes of temperature.
Thermal Conductivity 0.2w/mK
FACT: Significantly lower than glass.
Impact Resistance To BS 5544 (cert no: 395-1) and regulation 14 compliant.
FACT: Steel Ball drop test concluded no penetration or breakage of GRP glazing.
Uv / Light Transmission Up to 83% depending on thickness and surface texture.
FACT: The inclusion of our unique surface protection membrane can significantly enhance the quality, appearance
and lifespan of GRP Glazing by providing a high level of UV resistance, thus ensuring continued light transmission.
Graffiti Resistance A factory applied coating operation ensures simple removal of graffiti with no detrimental surface effects to the panel.
Flexural Strength 170 MPa
FACT: Will not bow or flex as much as other glazing plastics.
Tensile Strength 100 MPa
FACT: GRP sheet is up to seven times stronger than mild steel on a weight for weight basis.
Tensile Modulus 8 GPa
Sheet Dimensions Fybagard / Fybalyte:
Standard stock sheet size is 8 x 4 (2440mm x 1220mm), but as all panels are manufactured
to customer requirements, virtually any length can be accommodated (bearing in mind
manhandling and delivery issues maximum length is generally 3500mm) – there is a width
restriction of 1525mm.Fybamesh:
8 x 4 (2440mm x 1220mm) or any derivative within these sizes.
Sheet Strength Standard product range can be manufactured to literally any thickness with 3mm, 4mm & 6mm being standard.
12mm is usually maximum thickness produced.
Cutting And Handling Fybagard / Fybalyte:
Jig saw, Bench saw (using diamond tipped blade) or Guillotine.Fybamesh:
Guillotine abrasive disc, Jig saw (using metal cutting blades). Cut in well-ventilated area using gloves,
eye protection and dust particle masks.
