Outback Cooldek® Insulated Roofing

A Breakthrough Innovation

Control the climate with Stratco’s innovative Cooldek insulated panel. Cooldek provides roofing, insulation and a beautiful ceiling all in one product. Cooldek is designed to be strong enough to span significant lengths unsupported while providing outstanding thermal performance. Cooldek is relatively simple to install, and even has an inbuilt rebate to conceal electrical wiring for fans and light fittings.

Insulated Advantage for Cooling Comfort

Stratco Cooldek roofing features a polystyrene core that is permanently bonded to a smooth, easy to clean coloured steel underside and a profiled, coloured steel topside. The insulating properties of Cooldek reduce heat from above on hot days which significantly increases comfort levels under the roof. It also reduces noise from heavy rain and will aid in keeping the interior of your home cool, reducing your energy costs and your carbon footprint.

Many Options Available

You have two top profiles to choose from; either the traditional corrugated shape of Cooldek CGI or the high performance decking shape of Cooldek Classic. For the underside contour, there is a choice of smooth or two ribbed finishes. The underside is available in white or a choice of high gloss colours.

You can choose from three insulation thicknesses; 50mm, 75mm and 100mm, for increasing levels of insulation and greater spanning capabilities. 50mm thick panels have an insulation rating (R value) of up to 1.6, 75mm thick panels have an R value of up to 2.2 and 100mm thick panels have an R value of up to 2.8.

The topside colour choices include a wide range of popular colours to integrate your patio into existing colour schemes.

Impressive Strength, Incredibly Long Spans

Exceptional strength allows Cooldek to span up to an impressive 7.2 metres unsupported. These large spans reduce the number of beams and framework required, which offers you an uncluttered appearance and clear views.

Outback Sunroof™

For the Best of Your Weather

Control your outdoor living weather with the innovative Stratco Outback Sunroof. Its electronically controlled louvres can be opened and closed to your desired position. Let the breeze and sunlight in when the weather is fine, and provide protection when the clouds set in. By adjusting the rotating louvres with the hand held remote, you can easily control the level of sunlight, shade and weather shielding. The system has an inbuilt rain sensor that will automatically close the blades if rain is detected. When the louvres are completely shut they form a beautiful ceiling-like interlocking profile that protects you from the weather.

Superior Design

The Stratco Outback Sunroof is available in a flat and gable roof design. It can span up to 3.9 metres for flat, and 7.2 metres for gable designs thanks to its strong, well-engineered blades. The powder coated aluminium blades have an inbuilt weather strip to reduce noise and form a tight seal. The moving parts use specially designed bushes for whisper quiet performance, and the blades are driven by a powerful 24 volt DC linear actuator for reliable long life operation.

Outback Curved Roof

Show Your Contemporary Flair

The contemporary form of the Outback Curved Roof Verandah, Patio or Carport will add value and impart a sense of style and sophistication to your home.

The curved roof can span up to 6.6 metres wide in both Multispan and Clearspan designs. It is available as a freestanding unit or attached to the home.

Multispan for Roofing Material Choice

The Outback Multispan Curved Roof has purlins that are placed over the rafters in the roof. This supports your choice of cladding; from smooth Outback Deck, light and airy polycarbonate, or classic corrugated steel. Excellent if you want to achieve a very particular colour or light level.

Clearspan for Uncluttered Clean Lines

The Outback Clearspan Curved Roof minimises beams and rafters by using remarkably strong Outback Deck. This leaves the roof area clean and uncluttered with a ceiling-like appearance from beneath. Rooflites are available to brighten your lifestyle space underneath.

Gazebo & Hip End

Outback Gazebo End for a Destinctive Finish

Outback Hip End for Architectural Symmetry

With an enduring style, the Stratco Outback Hip End will add a traditional charisma to your home. The hip end is an elegant addition that completes the end of an Outback Gable. It has been designed to match the existing architecture of homes with a hip end in the roofline. You can incorporate a hip end to great effect on one or both ends of your gable.

Outback Pergola
