Features and Benefits

N/A

  • A Truly Walkable Roof Panel
    Our product has high impact resistance and is capable of safely supporting normal foot traffic and the weight of maintenance workers.
  • UL Fire Rated
    Includes a flame spread classification of 25.
  • Corrosion resistant
    Produced with a high quality isophthalic halogenated polyester resin.
  • Outstanding weathering
    Our high quality resin incorporates neopentyl glycol, acrylic modification and UV stabilizers.
  • C/W Barrier protection - STANDARD
    A protective barrier on both exterior and interior surfaces that is fused into the resin/fiberglass matrix to give the panel even greater protection against degradation.
  • Multiple glass reinforcements
    Tred-Safe panels utilize a combination of glass reinforcement including bidirectional continuous strand woven and chopped strand glass. This multi-layered glass fiber reinforcement assures installers and building owners that Tred-Safe provides the safety of a TRULY WALKABLE ROOF PANEL.
  • Exceeds ASTM D 3841
    Standard Specification for Glass-Fiber-Reinforced Polyester Plastic Panels.

More Information

N/A Resolite Tred-Safe was designed to meet the need for a fire rated, strong, safe, walkable+ roof panel. Tred-Safe incorporates the same isophthalic polyester resin as our high performance FS25A and CRFS25A products. The resin is intermixed with a five layer combination of reinforcement including C/W Barriers, bidirectional continuous strand woven and chopped strand fiberglass, making Tred-Safe the optimum FRP walkable panel.

Tred-Safe, type 1645, is Resolite's toughest roofing or siding panel with a nominal weight of 16 oz./sq.ft. and approximately 45% glass reinforcement. This heavy combination of reinforcement, coupled with Resolite's resilient resin, provides a panel that is strong, flexible, and truly walkable. With over ten years of performance history, Tred-Safe has the proven benefit of safely supporting the concentrated load of maintenance workers. Tred-Safe is also ideal as a siding panel where long spans are required or high impact resistance is needed.

Tred-Safe's resin/glass matrix of isophthalic polyester resin and fiberglass reinforcement provides a long service life in corrosive environments and offers outstanding weathering resistance characteristics. The resin's weathering has been greatly enhanced with neopentyl glycol, acrylic modification and UV stabilizers. Resolite takes corrosion resistance and good weathering one step further by providing a C/W Barrier as standard on both exterior and interior surfaces of Tred-Safe. C/W Barrier is the long range solution to better weathering FRP panels and is far superior to highly volatile sprayed on coatings that erode and fade away in a short time.

Resolite Tred-Safe 4.2 x 1-1/16" corrugated profile is an ideal replacement for old corrugated cement panels, since both materials have identical configurations.
