Filon Fixsafe is ‘first choice’ for industry-leading roofing contractor
Weatherproofing Advisors Ltd, one of the UK’s leading industrial and commercial roofing contractors, has made Filon Fixsafe a key part of its stringent Health & Safety programme.
Weatherproofing Advisors attaches the greatest importance to health and safety, considering this to be a responsibility ranking above all other management functions within the organisation. The company has even created a memorable marketing campaign around safety super-hero ‘R.U. McSafe’ – to highlight its zero-tolerance approach to safety on-site.

Filon rooflights deliver multiple benefits for expanding steel stockholding business
Steel Processing (Midlands) Ltd is a privately owned steel stockholding and processing business based in Burntwood, Staffordshire. As part of a recent investment to accommodate a new state-of-the-art slitter line, the company has recently built a new 15,000sq ft factory extension and has carried out a major refurbishment of their existing 35,000 sq ft unit.

Even with the electric lights on, the quality of the flight was not great and made for a slightly oppressive atmosphere.” Read more

The existing polycarbonate barrel vault rooflights had started to fail, resulting in water ingress in some areas of the building. A further long-term problem with the existing rooflights was direct, un-diffused light which was causing glare and localised heat build-up: both unwelcome characteristics in a food storage warehouse environment.
