Everbright Skylights & Canopy 186 Hay Street Subiaco Perth Western Australia
This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system, where our product was specified. Everbright E610 Ice White was installed recently on a exterior upgrade at 186 Hay Street Subiaco Perth WA, as both skylights and a translucent entrance canopy. The skylight area consisted of small tapering panels and the entrance canopy larger panels starting at 5.5mtr in length set over one intermediate support. The Everbright panels as standard are supplied in 600mm configurations. Our panels simply clip together, making the installation process rapid, as our product only requires to be joined every 600mm on site. See design loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available.
The total project area was 60sqm, which consisted of 35sqm for the skylight and 25mtr for the entrance canopy. The installation time on this project was two days and two men were available on site.
The design brief for this development was for a modern looking translucent system that could open up both these area and utilize all the natural light available. The specification also required a system that has superior thermal and acoustic performance. Another key factor was for a product which has a long life span.
The Everbright E610 system gives a unique visual appearance and minimizes structural requirements. Since less structure is required with our system less shadows are created, and as such the natural light translucency is at its full potential. Due to our unique panel design and the two air gaps the thermal performance and light transmissions are superior to alternative polycarbonate products on the market, making our system an excellent choice for this project. Our product now provides a pleasant attractive environment for all the businesses who occupy these premises.
Ice white was the colour selected with 55% light transmissions. Makrolon 1243 is the material used in our polycarbonate roofing system, which is part of the worldwide Bayer Group.
Everbright E610 comes with a manufactures worldwide 10 year warranty and the panels have a life expectancy in excess of 35 years.
Our polycarbonate system give a seamless and continuous line, with no steel frame work spoiling the visual effect. E610 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. Other systems would necessitate the need for a framed grid work support system across the entire roof.
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.
The installation process is very rapid and simple with our polycarbonate system. We can also advise that there was a significant cost saving on the structure requirements on this project.
