Control the weather with the innovative Stratco Outback Sunroof

The versatile Outback Sunroof provides adjustable sun-shade and protection wherever you need it. Combine it with other styles from the Stratco Outback range, or use the Sunroof on its own as an awning, pergola, veranda or patio.

Convenient control

The level of sunlight, shade and weather shielding can be controlled 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 while providing adequate 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 sensor is fitted to the sunroof as standard, so the louvres automatically close when rain is detected, providing protection from the weather.

When the louvres are in the closed position, they form an interlocking profile providing protection from the rain.

Superior, durable design

The Stratco Outback Sunroof can span up to 3.9 metres thanks to its strong, well-engineered blades. The pre-painted steel blades have a unique foam insert that makes them very rigid and helps insulate from any surrounding noise.

Coloured steel, stainless steel, powder-coated aluminium, and plastic materials are used throughout to ensure optimum protection from corrosion.

The entire sunroof system has been durability tested to 20,000 cycles (equivalent to two full cycles per day for more than 25 years).

A powerful 100 watt motor is used to ensure the system operates reliably for life.

It is fitted with a thermal cut-out and adjustable limit stops to prevent damage from misuse.

Quiet and effortless

The Stratco Outback Sunroof’s louvres rotate with a smooth and quiet operating action.

The system’s moving parts use specially designed bushes for whisper quiet performance. Its insulated foam core also dampens operating noise.

The louvres are driven by a powerful 24 volt DC linear actuator for reliable long life operation.

The motor is mounted high above the gutter to ensure protection from rain and pooling water. It is safe to use, and remote controlled.

Complements the entire Stratco Outback Range

The Outback Sunroof louvre blades have been specially designed with a unique, softly ribbed profile so they “look and feel” like part of the Stratco Outback family.

When the louvres are in the closed position, they form an interlocking profile that is both clean-lined and aesthetically similar to Outback Deck.

The Stratco Outback Sunroof can be installed as a stand alone unit, or combined with the Outback Flat RoofGable RoofCurved Roof or Pergola.

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 square holes for the louvres to fit easily into the framework, using a patented, spring loaded bayonet mounting system.
  • The tracks are pre-mitred and cut to length to reduce the overall installation time.
  • The total Stratco Outback Sunroof system clips and fastens together with specially designed, snap-fitted components.

Fixing Details

For Non-Cyclonic Areas

Two 12 x 20mm self drilling screws per pan at each support and two 3.2mm sealed aluminium rivets per pan at the back channel. If decking runs parallel to the back channel, secure to channel with rivets at maximum 200mm centres. All screws are to have neoprene washers.

For Cyclonic Areas

Three 12 x 20mm self drilling screws per pan at each support. For deck spans less than 3600mm, two self drilling screws per pan are to be used on fascia beam. Three 3.2mm sealed aluminium rivets per pan (or 150mm centres if sheets are parallel) to be used at the back channel. All screws are to have neoprene washers.

Design Considerations

Gable/Curved Units Attached Between a Flat Unit & an Existing Structure

Gable/Curved Units which are attached between a Flat Unit (excluding pergolas) and an existing house, shall only be considered attached if the Gable/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/curved length (L). The Flat Unit in this case can be considered attached. This style requires all columns to be embedded into footings.

Gable/Curved Units Attached to Flat Unit One or Both Sides

Gable/Curved Units which are attached one or both sides to Flat Units, (excluding pergolas) must be attached to an existing house for at least 75% of the gable/curved opening length (O) to be considered attached. Flat Unit/s must be deemed attached as detailed in the Flat Unit section below to allow the Gable/Curved Unit to be considered attached.

Gable/Curved Units are considered attached both sides if both Flat 1 and 2 comply with attachment rules for Flat Units as detailed below. Gable/Curved Units are considered attached one side if only one Flat Unit exists and it complies with the attachment rules for Flat Units as detailed below.

Flat Units

A Verandah, Patio, Carport or Pergola 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.

Design Options

When designing an Outback, consideration should be given to both Roof sheet direction, and the orientation of any openings and overhangs involved. These are often determined by appearance and drainage requirements. The following shows some of the normal options used.

Attached to Flat Unit One Side & Wall or Fascia One EndAttached Both Sides to Flat Unit & Wall or Fascia Opposite SideAttached to Flat Unit Both Sides & Wall or Fascia One End

Note: When attaching Gable/Curved Verandahs to Sunroof Units, please refer to “The Rules of Attachment to Standard Outback Systems” in the Outback Sunroof Span Tables Book.
