Everbright E610 Opal was used on several large vertical translucent walls at Leeming Trade Training Centre Perth WA.
In this new development there were 1 x large 3.5 mtr (free span) and 2.5 mtr walls with locking system LS2.1. Additionally 1 x further tapering vertical walls (free span) and soffit lining area with locking system LS1. No mail rail supports were required with our system and our panels simply clip together, making the installation process rapid, as our product only requires to be joined every 600 mm on site. See design loads, which shows you in more detail the different locking systems available.
The total project area was 125sqm. The installation time on this project was 2 days and two men were on site.
The design brief for this development was for a modern unique translucent system, that would be a design feature that could provide as much natural light as possible to enhance this facility. Product selection was very thorough due to the nature of this development, the client's specifications was for a product that was self cleaning, impact resistance, intruder resistance, graffiti proof, minimize structural requirements and had a long life span. Other important considerations was for the selected material to have superior thermal and acoustic performance characteristics.
The Everbright E610's increased free span capabilities, made our polycarbonate system an excellent choice for this project giving the desired effect, as it is one of the strongest translucent materials available in the world today. Our premiere 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 new trade centre.
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.
Opal was the colour selected with 65% 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. Everbright E610 comes with a manufacture’s worldwide 10 year warranty and the panels have a life expectancy in excess of 35 years.
