Batavia Coast Marina Apartments 3/201 Foreshore Drive Geraldton Western Australia
This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system and and showcases it's suitability for top end commercial developments.
Everbright E610 Clear was used recently at the Batavia Coast Marina Apartments, Geraldton, WA. This development consisted of the following area;
1 x Large Everbright translucent skylight @ 9mtr panel length x 8mtr, incorporation locking system LS2.2. 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 72 square meters.
Clear was the selected colour due to 73% percent light transmissions for visible light.
The design brief for this development was for a modern looking translucent system, which would utilize all the nature light available. The design intention was for the skylight to enhance the whole development with a clean modern look, creating the correct ambience and comfortable environment for the residents of this new development.
Due to the nature of this facility the client was looking for a product that was self cleaning, impact resistance and had a long life span.
Another major stipulation was for the selected material to have superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics.
The clients specifications was for a system that would provide as much natural light as possible for this facility. 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.
Several other key factors also included a product that could be manufactured in extra long lengths, due to the application and was 100% fully trafficable due to a strict scheduled maintenance program.
Furthermore our system is rapid to install, which helped keep to the builders stringent deadline.
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.
