AQUANATION / RINGWOOD, AUSTRALIA
SKYLIGHT // MULTIWALL POLYCARBONATE SYSTEM
Palram worked with the architects on Aquanation from 2012 until its completion in 2015. The specified roofing system, Sunpal White Opal Diffuser Plus 18 mm, features a double diffuser effect to soften the transmitted natural daylight as well as the inner reflections of electric lighting during the dark. The multiwall polycarbonate architectural panel system was integrated into the skylights along with 3 types of curved roof deck finishes. To allow this challenging installation, Palram provided a specific span-bar rafter system with a custom bracket design.
