Mundaring Christian College Large Blue Translucent Wall Perth Western Australia

Translucent tapering walls

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 was used recently at the Mundaring Christian College, Mundaring, Perth WA. This development consisted of the following area;

1 x Large translucent blue wall @ various lengths 6.5mtr - 5.5mtr x 40mtr, set over one mid rail support, incorporation locking system LS2.1. . 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 project area was approximately 240 square meters.

The design brief for this new development was for a modern unique looking translucent system, that would be the signature statement for the whole development.
Due to the nature of this facility the client was looking for a product that was self cleaning, graffiti proof, and impact resistance. Additionally the selected material was required to have a long life span, superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics.

Another major consideration was for a system that could provide as much natural light as possible for these areas and be ascetically pleasing. Everbright E610's increased free span capabilities, made our polycarbonate system an excellent choice for this development giving the desired results, as the Everbright system is one of the strongest translucent materials available in the world today. The Everbright E610 system gives a unique visual appearance and minimizes structural requirements making use of all the natural light available. Since less structure is required with our system less shadows are created, and as such the natural light translucency is at its full potential.

Our premiére product enhanced this development with its clean modern look, which created the correct ambience and provides a comfortable environment for all the staff and pupils at the School.

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.
