Colour Clad Profiles 13/3 GRP Translucent Roofing sheets are the perfect way to allow daylight into your building, they match all our Roofing sheets in Box Profile and Corrugated to seamlessly sit in with the rest of your roof or wall. Each roof light allows 80% daylight through, it is important to note that these GRP Roof lights are not 100% translucent, they have a frosted finish. Translucent are a cost-effective way to deliver a daylight system into your roof without compromising on quality and design. If you would like more detail on our GRP Daylight System give us a call on 01278 557002.

Anti-Con is an effective solution to combat the effects of water condensation on the underside of your roof cladding. Colour Clad apply the Anti-Con (DR!PSTOP) lining during the manufacturing process, its rolled simultaneously with the steel through or profiling mill and applied to the reverse of the roofing sheet.
DR!PSTOP is perfect for single skin applications to ensure any humidity in the air evaporates and is absorbed in locations where it is important that the condensation is under control, Anti-Con is ideal for;
- Chill Rooms
- Work Shops
- Equestrian and Agricultural Buildings
- Garden Sheds/Summer Houses
- Grain Stores
As previously mentioned we apply the Anti-Con lining during the roll forming stage, when rolling the roofing sheets we allow the overlap edge to be free of Anti-Con, this in turn will minimise the risk of water being drawn into the lap through symphonic action.
How It Works
Colour Clad Profiles DR!PSTOP solution helps to control condensation in environments where it occurs often. For Anti-Con to work effectively the building has to be adequately ventilated to allow the Anti-Con fleece to dry out between cycles. Ideally the ridge and eaves should be left open without the use of foam fillers, if the use of foam fillers is a requirement then an alternative roof construction should be considered. The roof pitch also has a significant bearing on the products performance and a minimum roof pitch of 10° is recommended, for roof pitches below 10° please seek advice from our sales team.
When Colour Clad Profiles Anti-Con is used in a livestock situation the humidity generated by these animals can be quite high, the table below shows the moisture levels produced by livestock and the area required by each animal to keep humidity levels under 80gm/m²/hour.

Storage of your Anti-Con Sheets
Anti-Con lined roofing sheets should be stored (where possible) indoors prior to installation, where this is not possible the packs of material must be stored off the ground and kept dry. Profiled sheets should not be allowed to slide on each other or onto steelwork as this will minimise the chance of the fleece becoming damaged and snagging. If the backing coat becomes dirty it can be cleaned using a pressure washer if possible, in the case of livestock buildings this should be done once a year with a solution containing fungicide.
