Foley Park Amenities Block Everbright Skylight Glebe Sydney New South Wales
This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system and showcases it's suitability for top end commercial developments. Everbright E610 Ice White was used recently at the Foley Park Amenities project in Glebe, Sydney, as a translucent skylight. This new development, incorporated an Everbright E610 skylight area with a 2.5mtr span x 6mtr. The Everbright panels were set at a 5 degree pitch. The Everbright panels incorporating locking System LS1. See design loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available. Total project size 15sqm. Installation time for this project was one day and two tradesmen available on site to do the associated works.
The design brief for this development was for a modern looking translucent product, that could minimize structural requirements, was fully trafficable and have a long life span. The client's specifications were for a product that was self cleaning, impact resistance, had superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics. Another key factor was for a product that was rapid to construct.
Additionally the selected translucent system, would have to enhance this unique structure and provide a comfortable environment, utilizing all the natural light available. The design intention was for all the selected products to have minimal impact on the environment.
Product selection was very stringent due to the nature of this facility, the client's specifications was for a product that was eco friendly and 100% recyclable.
Other important considerations was for the selected material to have superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics.
The Everbright E610's increased free span capabilities, made our polycarbonate system an excellent choice for this project giving the desired effect, as it is one of the strongest translucent materials available in the world today. For developments of this nature Everbright additional benefit, is that in the unlikely event of roof traffic on the roof, our polycarbonate system will not break or the joints separate.
Our premiere product enhanced this development with its clean modern look and now provided a comfortable environment.
Ice white was the colour selected due to a 55% percent light transmission for visible light.
The Everbright E610 panels only needs to be joined every 600mm on site this makes the installations process very rapid.
Our polycarbonate system give a seamless and continuous line, with no steel frame work spoiling the visual effect. Everbright E610's integral locking bars hide the aspect of where a panel starts and where it finishes, so it becomes a continuous system giving a uniformed and conformed design feature. Creating an architectural flare, that isn't possible with any other polycarbonate system available on the market. Our system only needs to be secured with washer and screw fixings provided to both the lower and higher end of the panels, all the joints are self sealing once the integral locking bar is fitted.
Makrolon 1243 is the material used in our polycarbonate roofing system, which is part of the worldwide Bayer Group. Everbright E610 comes with a manufacture's worldwide 10 year warranty and the panels have a life expectancy in excess of 35 years.
The construction process is very simple and is less time consuming to install on site. We can advise that there was a significant cost saving on the structure requirements with our system on this project.
Everbright E610 polycarbonate panels incorporate as standard detailing an excellent safety factor. All loading criteria are based on 0.75kN/sqm and a 50% safety factor as part of a standard specification detailing.
