Everbright E610 Opal was used recently as a translucent canopy and skylight on the new music center at the Great Southern Grammar School in Albany WA. In this development the Everbright canopy measured 12 mtr (4 mtr free span) x 6 mtr and the skylight measured 3.6 mtr (free span) x 12 mtr, both areas incorporated locking system LS2.1. Our panels simply clip together, making the installation process rapid, as our product only requires to be joined every 600 mm on site.
The total project area was 116 sqm canopy (72 sqm) and skylight (44 sqm). The installation time on this project for both areas was 2 days and three men were on site to do associated works.
The design brief for this development was for a modern looking translucent material, that would be a unique design feature that could provide as much natural light as possible to enhance this state of the art 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, fully trafficable, 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 comfortable environment for all the staff and pupils at the school.
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. 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.
