Waterproof and UV resistant retractable roof system Brisbane. Queensland.
Considering the problems
This homeowner had a widespread issue faced by practically everyone in Australia, The damaging and intense sun saturation that we all face. Australia has one of the heights UV saturation of any country result in required consideration for protecting the space we socialise in from the UV and heat for our health and welfare.
Like most homeowners with outdoor spaces, they found there was no shade cover of their stunning recreation and entertainment area, hence limiting the time in which they were able to use the space.
Finding a solution
The solution was an All-weather All seasons system from Helioscreen. The All seasons system provides both sun and rain protection when in use. Fitting Queensland’s climate, this will be used regularly to provide fantastic entertaining with its robust waterproof fabric and durable structure which will provide a comfortable environment to be in at any time of the year.
The Pure series HS20 system is a perfect application due to its durability and ability to blend seamlessly into the custom steel structure required for this application.
The tricky part
The installation of this system had to have some customisation to utilise the All seasons structure. The requirement was to have the system spanning all three sides of the building, so the custom steel supports were designed. This enabled the system to be incorporated into the space to span across the pool area. One of the requirements was to ensure the system was set back enough to conceal the fabric when not in use. This was easily achieved with the purpose-built system.
Integrated into existing home design.
To match the system to the external colour scheme, the customer chose colour options from the Dulux powder coat range. These colours seamlessly integrated the roof into the existing structure and complimented the tones of the building, allowing it to compliment the current colours so not to be a distraction to the atheistic flow providing an elegant aesthetic.
As there are many colour options and types of fabric that were available to the owners, they were able to select a fabric that works best for their requirements, enabling them to have a colour they were happy with while being completely protected from the harsh UV and elements.
The project has exceeded the expectations of the client. “one of the best things we ever bought.”
