I was so impressed by the 1-piece profiled beams that were so strong they could span 8.4 metres without support columns giving me beautiful uninterrupted views.

Four patio configurations to choose from:

  • Type One has a 4.5 metre maximum span and only requires an outside beam to support the structure, although most units use perimeter beams on all sides to provide the best appearance.
  • Type Two is the same, but with an overhang at the front to increase the covered area to 5.4 metres.
  • Type Three has support beams across the span so the roof sheets can run horizontally for a different appearance.
  • Type Four has extra support beams and a purlin through the middle to give it a span of 8.4 metres.

Strip Outback Range

Invest In Market Leading Quality

Available in a wide range of high gloss colours to complement your home, the Stratco Outback Patio features the sturdy Outback Deck, a steel roofing sheet with a clean, smooth underside that has a 'ceiling-like' finish.

This unique roofing material can span up to 4.5 metres, allowing the support beams to be placed far apart for a clean, uncluttered finish to your patio. The structure is formed with strong and elegant, chamfered and fluted beams and columns. Matching gutters tie the system together, while hidden fixing points and concealed brackets complete the smooth and refined appearance.

Maintenance: Regular maintenance is essential to maintain the good looks of all Stratco steel products and to ensure you receive the maximum life-span possible in your area. Washing with clean water must be frequent enough to prevent the accumulation of dust, salts, and pollutants or any other material that will reduce the life of the product. Stratco steel products that are regularly washed by rain require no additional maintenance. No Stratco steel structure or materials are recommended for use over, or in close proximity, to swimming pools or spas. No material that retains water (such as dirt or paving sand) should be placed against the columns. Care must be taken when determining the location of Stratco steel products so that they are not placed in close contact with sources of pollution or environmental factors that could affect the life of the steel. Refer to the 'Selection, Use and Maintenance' brochure for more information.

Design Considerations

Gable or curved units attached between a flat unit and an existing structure

Gable or curved units which are attached between a flat unit (excluding pergolas) and an existing house, are only be considered attached if the gable or curved unit is attached to the existing house (C) for its full length (L) and the longest side of the combined unit (B) does not exceed twice the gable or curved unit length (L). The flat unit in this case can be considered attached. This style requires all coloumns to be embedded into footings.

Patios Verandah Carport Outback Flat Configuration

The unit is considered attached if: B = 2 L or less, and C = L

Gable or curved units attached to a flat unit on one or both sides

Gable or curved units which are attached on one or both sides to flat units, (excluding pergolas) must be attached to a house for at least 75% of the gable or curved opening length (O) to be considered attached. Flat units must be deemed attached as detailed in the flat unit section below for the gable or curved unit to be considered attached.

Gable or curved units are considered attached on both sides if both the flat 1 and 2 comply with the attachment rules for flat units as detailed below. Gable or curved units are considered attached on one side if only one flat unit exists and it complies with the attachment rules for flat units as detailed below.

Patios Verandah Carport Outback Flat Configuration

The gable | curved unit is considered attached if:  C = 0.75 of O or more

Flat units

A patio or carport is deemed to be freestanding unless it is attached to an existing house (C) for at least 75% of the length of its shortest side (A), and its longest side (B) does not exceed twice the length of its shortest side.

Patios Verandah Carport Outback Flat Configuration

The unit is considered attached if:  B = 2 A or less, and C = 0.75 A or more

Design Options

When designing an Outback Patio, consideration should be given to both the roof sheet direction, and the orientation of any openings and overhangs involved. These are often determined by appearence and drainage requirements. Some of the normal configurations are shown below. Contact Stratco if assistance is required.
