Will it rust?
What are the advantages of an Eclipse Opening Roof system?
There are many advantages. Our system helps control wind, light and glare; it shades the building without blocking out light into adjoining rooms; the louvres provide ventilation – great on hot days; it keeps the building cooler in summer and warmer in winter thus conserving energy cost; it enhances outdoor experiences; it offers louvre positioning options that can be positioned for optimal light manipulation; it increases the investment value of your property.
What is a powder coated finish?
Powder coating is tougher than conventional paint. It’s a special process of applying dry-powder paint electrostatically, then curing the surface to create a hard finish. This finish is typically used for modern aluminium windows, doors and pool fencing.
What colours can I choose from for my opening roof?
You can choose from over 60 powder coated finish colours and an anodised finish where required. For best aesthetic effect we recommend that the louvres be finished in a colour similar to the eaves which. Supporting material (i.e. beams and posts) can also be manufactured to suit.
Can you arrange the council application, if this is required?
Are you fully insured and licenced?
Do you provide ongoing service and maintenance?
Is the Eclipse Opening Roof suitable for small or large areas?
Both. Large areas can be divided into sections, all controlled with a single controller.
We have an odd-shaped area, can you put louvres on an angle?
My building is not a typical construction - would the louvres still work?
Yes. In most cases, the louvres will still operate properly. The Eclipse Opening Roof is a flexible system – see our project gallery for our past projects.
What's the maximum area that your roof system can cover?
Unlimited. The Eclipse System has been designed to be completely flexible so it can be customised to cover a small patio to a football ground, and more.
Will the Eclipse Opening Roof make my rooms dark when closed?
The benefit of the system is that you can leave the roof open. In times of rain the roof can remain partially open to allow light to come in.
How long will it take to install?
I want to built it myself - can you supply the materials?
Yes. We provide custom DIY kits with full instructions.
