Rossmoyne Translucent Swimming Pool Enclosure Perth Western Australia
This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of our 74mm polycarbonate system and showcase it's suitability for top end residential developments. Everbright E610 Ice White was used on a Translucent Swimming Pool Enclosure development in Rossmoyne, Perth, WA. Everbright E610 free spanned 2.8mtr incorporating Locking System LS1, set over one intermediate support, with two standard vertical infill walls. Locking system LS1 simply means there is 6 polycarbonate locking bars required out of every 6 chambers. See design loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available.
The Everbright panels were extruded, and supplied in complete 5.6mtr lengths for a standard gable roof arrangement x 15mtr wide. The panels simply clip together making the installation process very rapid, as our product only requires to be joined every 600mm on site. Installation time for this project was two days and two tradesmen were available on site, keeping disruption down to a minimum. The total area was 170sqm.
The design brief for this development was for a modern looking translucent system, that would be a simple replacement for the badly damaged acrylic sheets, damaged recently in heavy winds. Clients stipulations were for the replacement product, to be extremely strong, provide as much natural light as possible and would minimize the structural modifications required. Further clients instructions were for a translucent product which would create a pleasant and comfortable environment, providing a usable space all year round. The simple supporting structure modification made the construction process very simple with our product and gave our client the desired effect.
The specification also required a system that has superior thermal and acoustic performance. Due to our unique panel design the Everbright product delivered on all our clients requests and expectations.
Ice White was the colour selected with 55% light transmissions. Another key factor was for a product which has a long life span. Makrolon 1243 is the material used in our polycarbonate roofing system, which is part of the worldwide Bayer Group.
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, making our system an excellent selection for this development and a surprisingly affordable alternative.
Our system is manufactured locally in Western Australia and readily available from stock for smaller orders.
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.
