Coolaspan insulated metal roofing
is an integral design feature in a recently completed architect-designed home at the Currumbin Eco Village.
The home’s architect/owner specified Coolaspan roof panels for the 180 square meter residence, not only for the product’s outstanding insulation qualities, but also as an efficient, cost-saving alternative to more traditional construction materials. And with rapidly rising electricity costs, projected savings in air-conditioning and heating expenses, combined with an efficient solar power system should deliver significant savings for the owners over coming years.
Coolaspan combines an attractive Colorbond corrugated steel external surface area with a flat or corrugated steel Colorbond undersurface. A 100mm layer of construction grade polystyrene foam laminated between the two steel surfaces acts as an effective barrier to reduce heat transfer from the roof to the home’s interior during summer while effectively retaining internal warmth in winter. A further advantage is that Coolaspan is cyclone rated and fire resistant.
Builder, Mike Craihead said the lightweight panels were easily handled and quick to install. They also delivered considerable cost-savings as the system greatly reduced the amount of timber required for the roof structure and eliminated the need to install ceilings and separate in-ceiling insulation.
Superior Panels is extremely proud to have been selected to supply the Coolaspan insulated roofing system for such an outstanding design project.
