If the idea of blocking out the sun forever is stopping you from getting a verandah installed at your home, you’ll be glad to know there is a clever solution that gives you the best of both worlds; full sun or shade, just when you want it.

Light or shade; your choice, anytime

The Outback Sunroof is a smart piece of engineering, which is constructed from a series of durable interlocking louvres that can be opened or closed with the touch of a remote control. The powerful electric motor silently adjusts the louvres to give you your personal choice of light or shade – from full sun to total shade – or closes to create a watertight and sun blocking verandah that looks as stylish as any fixed form of roof covering. 

Maximise ventilation

One of the big pluses of the louvered Outback Sunroof is the ability to maximise ventilation. By partially opening the roof, trapped convective heat escapes while natural breezes can circulate freely, all while continuing to enjoy full shade from the sun. Each louvre’s insulated foam core also helps to block surrounding noise and radiant heat from the sun when the roof is fully closed, providing added comfort even on the hottest day. 

Automatic rain sensor

For those days when you just don’t know when it’s going to rain, but want to enjoy the sun while it’s out, the built-in rain sensor automatically closes the louvres to keep you and your guests dry, or protect your washing from getting wet. Enjoy the party and forget about spending the day nervously watching the sky; or if you are at work, your washing will be dry when you get home, regardless of the weather.

Installation customised for your home

When your Outback Sunroof is installed, we can align the louvres in a choice of four different positions to take advantage of prevailing breezes and the orientation of the sun relative to the position of your home. This helps to maximise the comfort and flexibility of your new Outback Sunroof. The Outback Sunroof is a versatile roof that’s ideal for a range of coverings and outdoor entertainment areas such as awnings, pergolas or patios. For more information about the Outback Sunroof, or any of our products, please don’t hesitate to call us on 1300 736 773.   Next week…we’ll be taking a look at the Cooldek verandah, which utilises stylish insulated panels to significantly block out heat and noise. Available in a range of thicknesses, the thickest panels deliver an insulation rating of up to 2.8. A great choice if you are looking for added comfort and protection from the suns relentless heat. The insulating properties of the Cooldek also make it ideal to help block out surrounding noise – you can even hear yourself talk in the pelting rain!
