Replace GRP Roof Lights In Telford - IRM Roofing

IRM Roofing was contracted to replace GRP roof lights in Telford, at an industrial warehouse. The original single skin roof lights (36 in number across four slopes) were 30 years old, leaking and in very poor condition emitting low levels of light into the unit below.

We dispatched a team of our GRP roof light specialists to Telford to remove the old roof lights and replace them with a new FILON triple skin site assembly. The objective was for the new roof lights to return the natural sunlight into the unit, whilst also adding extra insulation (u-value).

On this job, we were unable to erect safety netting below the roof space, so we set-up our own torque tensioned safety line system for our team to clip onto with body harnesses, which worked very well.

Below are photos from the Telford GRP roof lights installation which took three weeks to complete. If you require industrial roof light works then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at IRM Roofing. We serve commercial customers across the West Midlands.
