Stratco Outback Sunroof

Stratco Outback Patio Verandah CarportTake control of the weather with the innovative Stratco Outback Sunroof.

Electronically controlled louvres can be opened and closed to your desired position. Let the breeze and sunlight in when the weather is fine. Provide protection when the clouds set in.

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.

Adjustable Outback Sunroof louvres

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 ensureoptimum 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 Roof, Gable RoofCurved Roof or Pergola.

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 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 can be considered attached. This style requires all coloumns to be embedded into footings.

Configurations of the Sunroof Outback Verandah

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.

Configurations of the Sunroof Outback Verandah

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 verandah, 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.

Configurations of the Sunroof Outback Verandah

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.
