Stratco Outback Gable Roof

gable-patio-verandahExhibiting a strong presence and style, the pitched roof of a Stratco Outback Gable Carport, Pergola, Veranda or Patio is endowed with an open feel that will enrich your home and outdoor area.

Enhance your lifestyle with a Stratco Outback Gable veranda, patio or carport

The Stratco Outback Gable is available as a freestanding unit or attached to your home. Combined with flat roof or pergola sections, the prominent pitched roof becomes the main feature of the design.

The gable is available in our Multispan or Clearspan design. Match the Outback Deck with Outback Rooflites to supply natural filtered light.

Multispan Gable

The Outback Multispan Gable offers a range of roof cladding materials. It features purlins that are placed over the rafters in the roof. This supports the cladding, which can be the smooth Outback Deck, light and airy polycarbonate, or classic corrugated steel.

The gable can span up to 6.6 metres wide when attached at both ends, or 3 metres wide when attached at one end.

Clearspan Gable

The Outback Clearspan Gable uses only the Outback Deck, a very strong material that does not need extra purlins to support it. This leaves the roof area clean and uncluttered.

The Clearspan Gable can span an impressive 7.5 metres wide with a 22 degree pitch.

Design Considerations

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

Gable units which are attached between a flat or Sunroof unit (excluding pergolas) and an existing house, are only considered attached if the gable 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 unit length (L). The flat or Sunroof unit in this case can be considered attached. This style requires all coloumns to be embedded into footings.

Configurations of the gable Outback Verandah

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

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

Configurations of the gable Outback Verandah

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

 

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.
