WHY SUNTUF?


NO. 1 CHOICE - Home improvers are faced with a bewildering choice of pergola roofing these days, but SUNTUF ® remains the number one choice, for a variety of reasons.

THE ORIGINAL AND STILL THE BEST - SUNTUF ® was the first profiled polycarbonate sheeting available in Australia, and while its immediate success created a flood of imitations, it has continued to set the standard. When you ask for SUNTUF ® make sure you get the original proven product - branded according on the sheet.

TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED - Polycarbonate technology is a very complex and advanced science. Its mastery doesn't happen overnight. It takes skill, dedication and long term commitment to fully realise its potential. SUNTUF ® is manufactured using state-of-the-art technology which has resulted in a product of the highest standard, a home building product which is ideal for tough Australian conditions.

BUILT IN UV BARRIER - SUNTUF®'s "co-extrusion" manufacturing process is the result of over a decade of research and development in Australia and overseas. This special process fuses together the polycarbonate and the UV barrier at the molten moment of a sheet's creation. This eliminates any chance of delamination for the life of the sheet.

QUALITY ASSURED MANUFACTURE - The manufacturer's certification to international quality standard ISO 9002 ensures that every effort is made to produce and ship only the highest standard product. For the customer this means consistency of both thickness and tint. Consistency of thickness is the key to SUNTUF ®'s renowned strength. Another important factor is the minimisation of extrusion lines in SUNTUF ® sheeting.

LIFETIME WARRANTY - SUNTUF ® polycarbonate sheets carry a limited manufacturers lifetime warranty, not to lose more than 8% of light transmission for the first 10 years and thereafter no more than 1% per year when measured in accordance with ASTMD - 1--3-77. SUNTUF ® polycarbonate sheets are warranted for five years from the purchase date, not to break or fail as a result of the impact of hail measuring up to 25mm in diameter. These warranties shall only apply if the sheets are installed, used and maintained in accordance with SUNTUF ® recommendations and specifications.


Getting the most out of your Pergola

DESIGN - For the greatest aesthetic appeal, we recommend rafter spacings to coincide with the overlaps - Corrugated sheets at 760mm centres, Greca sheets at 760mm centres, Hi-Rib at 760mm centres, and Spantuf at 700mm centres. Purlins should also be recessed to minimise "two tone overlap" visibility.

HANDLING - Although SUNTUF ® has superior impact resistance, sheets should still be handled with care to avoid any unnecessary scratching prior to installation.

MAINTENANCE - Any work done on sheets should be carried out using walking boards along the purlin line.

CLEANING - With the correct recommended pitch, maintenance and cleaning will be minimal. Should cleaning be necessary, wet the sheets first and using a solution of warm water and mild detergent, scrub clean with a soft nylon broom. Hose down thoroughly.

COLOUR SELECTION - Careful consideration should be given to your choice of colour to obtain maximum benefits from your pergola. Refer to the selection guide.

VENTILATION - Pitched and arched roof designs where appropriate will allow for greater ventilation, assisting in the cooling of your entertainment area.

 

Selection Guide
The appropriate tint and profile selection will depend on your individual requirements and the application.
Taking the time to make the right choice will ensure that your needs for light transparency, UV protection and heat control will be met.
