Everbright Roffing system used in Melbourne soccer pavilion

This recently completed project will help you understand the benefits of the 74 mm polycarbonate system and showcases it's suitability for top end commercial developments.

Everbright E610 was used recently at the Soccer Pavilion 17 Park Avenue, Doncaster, Melbourne, VIC. This development consisted of the following areas; 1 x large translucent roof area set over four step purlin arrangements (5 x roof sections in total), incorporation locking system LS1. See design loads, which shows in more detail the different locking systems available. The panels simply clip together making the installation process very rapid, as the product only requires to be joined every 600 mm on site. The total project area was 10 mtr wide x 22 mtr long (total 220 sqm).

The design brief for this new development was for a modern unique looking translucent system, that had superior thermal performance and large span potential. Due to the nature of this facility the client was looking for a product that was self cleaning, fully trafficable and impact resistance. Additionally the selected material was required to have a long life span and superior acoustic performance characteristics.

Another major consideration was for a system that could provide as much natural light as possible for these areas and be ascetically pleasing. Everbright E610's increased free span capabilities, made the polycarbonate system an excellent choice for this development giving the desired results, as the Everbright system is one of the strongest translucent materials available in the world today. 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 the system, less shadows are created, and as such the natural light translucency is at its full potential.

Everbright's premiére product enhanced this development with its clean modern look, which created the correct ambience and provides a comfortable environment for all the clubs who use this new facility.

The polycarbonate system gives 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. E610 polycarbonate panels incorporate an excellent safety factor. All loading criteria are based on 0.75 kN/sqm and a 50% safety factor as part of a standard specification detailing.
