Darjon Mouldings worked in conjunction with Daybreak Windows to create this orangery in Hornchurch, Essex. The finished design has a glass lantern roof to provide optimal lighting and create a vibrant and well lit atmosphere within. Fibreglass is an ideal material for such a project due to the irregular shape of the roof.
The completed project provides a look similar to traditional lead but without the expense and possible risk of theft. Fibreglass is ideal for most situations where lead would traditionally be used. The fibreglass roofing is also completely watertight as it is one solid and complete surface without joins.
This installation was performed in dry conditions. Please note that the application of fibreglass to any surface, whether internal or external, is best performed in dry conditions. We highly discourage the application of fibreglass during wet conditions and on wet surfaces as the finish will not be as long lasting as it would otherwise be.
Fibreglass when correctly used, will provide a strong, attractive and durable finish:
- Lasts a lifetime - made of the toughest glass reinforced plastic.
- No rips or leaks - because the unit has no seams and is one continuous surface.
- Fire resistant resin available upon request.
- Chemical resistant resin available upon request.
"Here in the UK, the term 'Fibreglass' has become the universal term for this material. There are, however, a number of terms and spellings used to describe Fibreglass and these include Fiberglass, Fibre Glass, Fiber Glass, Glassfibre, Glassfiber, Glass Fibre, Glass Fiber and GRP, or Glass Reinforced Plastic."
