Commercial Gable Roof The Vines Resort, Perth Western Australia

The images contained within this section, take you through the installation process with our 74mm polycarbonate system. You will be able to see, how quick the installation process is, and how construction time is dramatically reduced. Installation time on this project was 4 hours from start to finish on each apartment.

Everbright E610 Clear was used as a gable roof in two holiday apartments using Locking System 2.1(see design loads).
The design brief was to create natural light into two dark stairways.

The client required a glazing solution that offered a comfortable natural lighting solution, great thermal properties, and a UV safe environment.
Construction time in this project was also of the essence, due to an extremely tight building schedule. E610 was specified for this project for many reasons, however the main factor was that Everbright E610 is fully trafficable. This makes a huge difference to construction time, it also helps in the general maintenance and cleaning of the roof. Our polycarbonate system is manufactured with a UV film that's integrated within the panels, which is uniquely designed to block out more than 99.9% of the harmful rays.

E610 was flat in this particular project and free spanned to 2.6mtr, without requiring any intermediate supports.
Each area measured 2.6mtr x 3.5mtr Wide.
Panels are pre assembled in 600mm configurations and in one complete length, therefore Installation on site is much quicker on site.
In the Images you will also see two large box gutters, which formed part of the roof. The verges were cloaked with a flashing, and the ridge flashing gives the professional finish the roof required.
