Polycarbonate roofing helps to miminise the penetration of harsh UV rays and light. For covered outdoor areas, this means that you can enjoy a light, bright and airy outdoor area, without having to worry about exposure to the sun’s harmful rays. This is especially beneficial for local Brisbane residents, as we spend so much of our year outdoors, enjoying the amazing Queensland sunshine. Depending on the brand, polycarbonate roofing can block up to 99.9% of UV radiation. It can also be remarkably tough in harsh weather conditions including heavy rain, storms and extreme heat.
Polycarbonate roofing can be suitable for use in areas of Queensland that are prone to bush fires and many brands are backed by ISO accreditations. This type of roofing is effective at stopping the spread of flames and is incredibly fire resistant. The team at BP Roofing can help you understand the safety specifications of this brilliant building material, including heat and smoke release rates, radiant heat test performance and meltability at different temperatures.
Polycarbonate roofing has been designed to stand up to strong winds, which are a common occurrence across Brisbane and surrounding areas. The quality and brand of polycarbonate roofing, together with professional installation and construction procedures means customers of BP Roofing can rest assured knowing that their family and properties will be safe and protected, no matter what the harsh Queensland climate throws at them.
Taking extra precautions when walking on sections of roofs or awnings that are covered with polycarbonate sheeting
Never walk directly on the sheeting itself. Always keep your weight on reinforced metal or wooden frames.
Take all necessary precautions when working at heights
Always take the time to wear appropriate safety gear including completely covered footwear, protective goggles or glasses and thick leather gloves.
Never drink water that has been collected from a polycarbonate roof drainage system.
Always consider the age of your framing. Over time, frames can lose their structural integrity due to natural weathering, aging or severe storms. If you are not 100% certain about the safety of the frame, never attempt to walk on or put weight on the frame. It is always best to enlist the help of a roofing specialist.
In Australia we are lucky enough to have access to some leading innovations in building materials and processes, so if you have an older polycarbonate roof you are wanting to update it might be a great opportunity to modernise with the latest innovations. In recent years there have been some major developments in this space, including fire resistance, UV blockage and light transferal.
