St Josephs School Stage 2 Vertical Walls Port Macquarie New South Wales
This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system and shows the versatility of our system.
Everbright E610 clear was used on several large vertical walls at St Josephs High School Stage 2 Port Macquarie NSW. In the new gymnasium there were 2 x 3.5mtr walls (free span) with locking system LS2.2. Additionally 2 x further curved tapering vertical walls various lengths (free span) with our locking system LS1 and no mail rail supports were required with our system. See design loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available.
Our panels simply clip together making the installation process very rapid, as our product only requires to be joined every 600mm on site.
The total area was approximately 225 square meters.
The design brief for this development was for a modern unique translucent system that would be a signature statement for the whole development.
Due to the nature of this facility the client was looking for a product that was impact resistance, intruder resistance and had both superior thermal and acoustic performance.
Another major consideration was for a system that could provide as much natural light as possible for all these areas. Everbright E610's increased free span capabilities, made our polycarbonate system an excellent choice for this development giving the desired results, as it one of the strongest translucent materials available in the world today.
Our polycarbonate system give a seamless and continuous line, with no steel frame work spoiling the visual effect. 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.
E610 polycarbonate panels incorporate 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.
