Outback Sunroof Patio

Control at your fingertips for the best of your weather

Control your outdoor living weather with the innovative Stratco Outback Sunroof Patio. Its electronically controlled louvres can be opened and closed to your desired position. Let the breeze and sunlight in when the weather is fine, and provide protection when the clouds set in.

By adjusting the rotating louvres with the hand held remote, you can easily control the level of sunlight, shade and weather shielding. The system has an inbuilt rain sensor that will automatically close the blades if rain is detected. When the louvres are completely shut they form a beautiful ceiling-like interlocking profile that protects you from the weather.

Gives you effortless control of the breeze and sunlight in fine weather, and excellent protection when the weather turns.

Convenient Control

Control the level of sunlight, shade and weather shielding by adjusting the rotating louvre blades with the hand held remote. The louvres can be rotated to the fully open position to allow for complete overhead sun, or partially open to provide shade and protection with good ventilation. The opening direction of the louvres can be aligned in any one of four directions during installation to optimise light and ventilation control.

Automated Intelligence

Rain is detected by a rain sensor that automatically closes the louvers. When the louvres are in the closed position, they form an interlocking profile that provides protection from the weather.

Superior Design

The Stratco Outback Sunroof is available in a flat and gable design. It can span up to 3.9 metres for flat, and 7.2 metres for gable designs thanks to its strong, well-engineered blades. The powder coated aluminium blades have an inbuilt weather strip to reduce noise and form a tight seal. The moving parts use specially designed bushes for whisper quiet performance, and the blades are driven by a powerful 24 volt DC linear actuator for reliable long life operation.

Installation

Attention to detail ensures the Stratco Outback Sunroof installation proceeds smoothly:

  • The louvre blades come pre-assembled with a foam core and end caps.
  • The mounting extrusions that house them have laser cut holes for the louvres to fit easily into the framework.
  • The tracks are pre-mitred and cut to length to reduce the overall installation time.
  • The system clips and fastens together with specially designed, snap-fitted components.

Do it yourself or have it installed by an Authorised Outback Dealer.

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 Sunroof unit and an existing structure

Gable or curved units which are attached between a Sunroof unit (excluding pergolas) and an existing house, are only to 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 Sunroof unit in this case is considered attached. This style requires all columns to be embedded into footings.

Patios Verandah Carport Outback Sunroof Configuration

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

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

Gable or curved units which are attached on one or both sides to Sunroof 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. Sunroof units must be deemed attached as detailed in the Sunroof unit section below for the gable or curved unit to be considered attached.

Patios Verandah Carport Outback Sunroof Configuration

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

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

Sunroof 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 Sunroof 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.
