Using 4 panel 3 sliding makes it possible to open 3/4qtrs (75%) of the roof.
This Sliding Roof System is designed for medium projection roofs. By using the 4 Panels, the system can open up to 75% (3/4rds). It is mostly used for projections up to 3.5 – 5m only. This is achieved by the first panel been fixed. The subsequent 3 panels slide under the fixed one.
All systems work on a minimum of 6 degree fall, which equates to a drop of 102mm per 1m. The sliding roof can be mounted off walls or above roof lines by using specially mounted extender brackets. The advantage of the extender brackets is the top panel which is fixed would be above the roof, allowing a 100% opening from the house.
You have a choices of panels
10mm twin Wall polycarbonate
This material is extremely strong but lightweight leaving less strain on the motor. Available in Clear and Opal, the material has incredible spans of 2500 between rafters.
11.5mm Glass laminated Glass
Which can be timed to reduce the heat. The maximum span of Glass is 1400mm
We use Becker motors, from Germany. These tubular motors are radio controlled. The motor can simply be plugged into a standard powder socket without the need for hard wiring. They are extremely reliable. Each motor can be set up to move 2 Bays of polycarb or 1 bay in Glass.
The panels moved using 2 heavy duty chains one either side this ensures maximum strength and they don’t wear out like fabric belt systems.
