WE OFFER A RANGE OF SUN SHADE SOLUTIONS TO PROTECT YOUR HOME AND KEEP YOU COOLER DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.
The Flexiroof “Tiny Arch” technology is a patented feature making Flexiroof shelters the best in New Zealand.
Water is something all roofing systems have to address, and our solution is unique in
several key ways:
1. No rubber or silicon is used
2. Zero holes are drilled in the sheets
3. Our sheets act as a very shallow gutter (via our “Tiny Arch” feature).
Flexiroof shelters are therefore 100% waterproof, and without relying on rubber or silicon, they will stay that way.
Wind is a key factor when we designed Flexiroof. So many outdoor shelters are heavily affected by strong winds. We can say the following with absolute confidence.
1. Mechanical robustness in gales
2. Quietness in storms
New Zealand has plenty of Sun, so an excellent quality product is required to protect and be long lasting. Our sheets reduce:
~100% of UV radiation
~50% of visible light
~33% of heat
Snow is quite heavy which is why we use the products we do. In extreme snow conditions load, some sag will occur and as the melt occurs the strong and elastic materials will just return to their original forms.
Corrosion - New Zealand has a varied temperate climate with plenty of rain, wind, sun, hail, UV, snow and salt laden sea air. Which is why we have focused on making our product as durable as they come. Structure Titanium and carbon fibre are too expensive. Pultruded fibreglass is cheap and strong, but restrictive in design and cosmetic finishes. Steel is cheap and strong, but galvanised, or powder-coated … frankly is going to rust, particularly where you drill holes. Indeed Archgola™ use steel tube and have a 5 year guarantee. At Flexiroof we use 6061 T6 aluminium which is strong, light and affordable, and very corrosion resistant, and have a
15yr guarantee. (We powdercoat for prettiness not to resist corrosion). Sheet Glass when made safe is great, but very expensive and heavy. Acrylic (Perspex™) is light and affordable, but not strong enough unless you make it very thick, and in a fire it drips hot plastic! Our sheet is polycarbonate, sadly 2x the price of acrylic, but hey it is 15x stronger which we like a lot. Fasteners: Steelfasteners are going to corrode, particularly by the sea of course. Galvanising . Zinc … Nope _ not going to convince us here! Flexiroof fasteners are therefore stainless steel, 316 where available.
