Open up to a world of benefits
The SMARTROOF® Openable Roofing System was invented and perfected by HV Aluminium Ltd, , Australia, to provide a roofing product that was unique in the market place - one that was made from strong extruded aluminium alloy and would offer benefits that were not previously available.
Maximising the use of outdoor areas has always been a challenge. If you install a conventional roof, how do you avoid the problems of either blocking out natural light, or creating a "hot house" with no breeze, especially on hot days? SMARTROOF® provides the versatile solution to meet diverse needs.
With the flick of a switch, the SMARTROOF® delivers total control of sun, shade and light as well as providing ventilation and rain protection
In winter the SMARTROOF® louvers can be positioned to catch the sun's natural warmth into rooms to save on energy costs. In summer these same louvers can then be moved to block direct sunlight to protect the building from unwanted solar heating. Winter or summer - the SMARTROOF® provides the best of both worlds!
With the simple push of a button, the louvers can be moved to give the desired lighting level into a building. Opened louvers reflect light into South facing areas The natural light illuminates work or living areas while providing savings in power consumption
During the summer months a place is often sought that provides shade from the sun's heat as well as cool ventilation. The SMARTROOF® provides this by angling the louvers to a partially open position. Even in light rain the louvers can still be left partially open and the water will drain away in the contours of the louver. And speaking of entertaining area, Bar-be-que smoke can be ventilated for greater comfort
The SMARTROOF® has a uniquely designed louver that provides complete overlap with no possibility of rain penetration. Tests show that high pressure water could not penetrate the joints between the louvers.
The louvers rotate from closed to almost 180 degrees by use of a small 12 volt DC motor which is powered by a transformer connected to a power outlet. This makes the SMARTROOF® safe to use and incredibly easy to operate with your choice of control systems viz; open / close toggle or rocker switch, multiple switch arrangements for indoor & outdoor use. Optional control options include remote control, rain sensor ie; automatic closing of louvers at the onset of rain and opening when the skies clear and electronic sun tracking for sun / shade control,or even link to your home automation control system.
