Translucent Canopies 226 Beaufort Street Perth Western Australia

2.5mtr free span

This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system. Everbright E610 Opal was used recently at 226 Beaufort Street, Northbridge, Perth, WA. This new development showcases our systems suitability for top end developments. Incorporated in this project was 2 x Everbright E610 translucent canopies. The Everbright product free spanned 2.5mtr and our panels were set at a 5 degree pitch. The Everbright panels incorporated locking System LS1. See design loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available. These panels were supplied in complete lengths of 2.5mtr x 6mtr & 8mtr widths sections. Total project size 35sqm.

Installation time for this project was one day and two tradesmen were available on site to do the associated works.

The design brief for this development was for a modern looking translucent system, which would utilize all the natural light available, providing a strong secure structure and pleasant feature for all the residents. The clients specifications was for a superior looking product, that would enhance this area with a clean fresh look and provide a long term solution for the area.

Additionally due to the application and location of this project, the client was looking for a product that was self cleaning, extremely strong, durable and had a long life span.

Another major stipulation was for the selected material to have superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics.

Our product was selected and now creates the correct ambience, providing a comfortable environment for all residents and visitors.

Everbright E610's increased free span capabilities, made our polycarbonate system an excellent choice for this development giving the desired effect, as it is 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 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.

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.
