Domestic Solasafe Polycarbonate

Overview

"Solasafe" Polycarbonate sheeting provides 99% protection from harmful UV rays that cause sunburn and skin damage.  Outdoor family and children's play areas are part of the Australian lifestyle, and selecting the best roofing solution is the first step to ensure you get the maximum benefit from your investment.  Polycarbonate is an advanced polymer with optical and physical properties that can't be matched by other materials.  Adding an outdoor room to your home can enhance your family life and add value to your property.  Solasafe has three levels of polycarbonate sheeting to choose from.  A level to suit your needs and climate.  A colour to suit your home and surroundings.

Level One "Solasafe"
The most widely used Solasafe Polycarbonate sheet.  Available in Corrugated, Greca and 5 - Rib profiles.  Seven colours with varying light and heat transmission ratings.

Level Two "Solasafe" Comfort Range
In designer colours that transmit less heat but allow plenty of soft light to pass through.  More comfort!  Corrugated and Greca profiles.  Two colours according to the profile selected.

Level Three "Solasafe" HR1
Metallic particles reflect heat but allow soft diffused light to transmit.  Especially suitable for use in hot climates.  Corrugated and Greca profiles in Pearl Ice and Silvermist colours.

Installation

Ampelite Australia Pty. Ltd. recommend that you closely adhere to the installation instructions below.  These procedures follow the Australian and New Zealand Standard: Design and Installation of Sheet Roof and Wall cladding, Part 3: Plastic, AS/NZS 1562.3: 2006.

"Solasafe" is ideally suited to domestic applications.  It is fixed and flashed on similar principles to steel roofing.  Ampelite's fixing procedures are based on normal weather conditions; for extreme climatic conditions enquire at your nearest Ampelite office for their recommendations.

Note: Minimum recommended fall for corrugated and greca is 5° this is approximately 83mm per metre of sheet length.  As an example: a 3.6 metre sheet requires a minimum fall of 300mm.  With 5 - Rib profile, 3° fall is sufficient - over 3.6 metres this is 180mm.  We strongly recommend using 5-Rib when the roof pitch is minimal.  If insufficient fall is allowed, leakage may occur.

A SIMPLE METHOD TO CALCULATE THE FALL OF YOUR ROOF

CORRUGATED / GRECA PROFILES

minimum fall 5°

For fall of 5° divide length of sheet by 12
e.g. a 6 metre sheet divided by 12 = 500mm fall top to bottom

5 RIB PROFILE
minimum fall 3°

For fall of 3° divide length of sheet by 20

e.g. a 6 metre sheet divided by 20 = 300m fall top to bottom
