Resolite CR-RFM resistant sheet was designed to provide a lighting able to support a classification with fire approval form Factory Mutual for walls, roofs and ceiling applications without requiring sprinklers protection. These resistant sheets were proved by the Factory Mutual Investigation Center and have passed Corner Test of Factory Mutual, both for 25’ as for 50’ feet. Both were conducted in clears of minimum 1.82 m (6’0”) to simulate real world conditions. According to the FM 4880 standard, the Resolite RFM resistant sheet has been approved for a use without restrictions as wall or roof without height limitations or spray protection. Resolite RFM resistant sheet also reached the Wind Suction Classification I-90 and passed the Factory Mutual tests of severe hail risks. Summarizing, Resolite’s sheets 11, 14 and 17 has accomplished the ASTM E 108 and has accomplish a Class B classification with a maximum slope on the ceiling of 3 in 12. The isolated system of Resolite RFM resistant sheet was also approved and also complies with the approval requirements FMRC Class 4453/4420.

Láminas resistentes Resolite CR translúcido

Resolite CR Translucent

Resolite CR (FS25A) Translucent high specification resistant sheet is made of polymer and reinforced with fiberglass (FRP) of great resistance and with UL 25 flame classification. Resolite CR resistant sheets were specially developed for natural lighting on walls and roofs for the high specification industry. Available in Series 30 (30% fiberglass) and Series 40 (40% fiberglass) and great variety of models, from 840 (8 oz/ft2 nominal) up to 1440 (14 oz/ft2 nominal). Series 30 has C/W barrier, which is an available option for exterior and interior surfaces. C/W barrier is a high range solution to improve weathering resistance of FRP sheets and is superior to high volatile coatings applied by sprinkling, that erode and disappear in a short time.
