Translucent Skylight RJ Vincent Warehouse Balcatta Perth Western Australia
This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system. Everbright E610 Opal was used recently at RJ Vincent Warehouse Balcatta, Perth, WA. This new development incorporated an Everbright E610 translucent skylight. The Everbright product free spanned 3.2mtr and our panels were set at a 3 degree pitch. The Everbright panels incorporated locking System LS2.1. See design loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available. The Everbright panels were supplied in complete lengths of 3.2mtr x 5mtr wide. Total project size 16sqm.
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 product, that could minimize structural requirements, was fully trafficable and had a long life span. The client's specifications were for a product that was self cleaning, impact resistance, had superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics. Another key factor was for a product that was rapid to construct, due to a stringent construction program.
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 the businesses who occupy these premises.
Opal was the colour selected with 65% 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.
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.
