Your roofing colour choice will have a bearing on the internal appearance of your patio or pergola and also the level of heat that you feel when there is direct sunlight on the roof of your structures polycarbonate sheets.
Laserlite Makrolon profiles and lengths
Laserlite Makrolon is available in only one profile as it is a flat sheet. This flat sheet roofing means that the look of the roof on your pergola is uniform and seamless. You can adjust the rafter centres on your pergola so the sheets intersect over the rafters and in doing so eliminate the need for purlins in your pergola and give the effect of less overhead clutter.
Laserlite Makrolon is available in a wide range of standard lengths that should be appropriate for all applications. Simply determine the length you need for your job and order it (or the next size up if it’s not exactly the same as any of the standard lengths) You can cut sheets to length easily using a jigsaw, a stanley knife, heavy duty shears or a circular saw
Standard lengths for sheets of Laserlite Makrolon are: 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 7.0
Laserlite Makrolon Screws and accessories
As a flat polycarbonate roof sheet that doesn’t need purlins in order to be fixed to the rafters of your pergola, Makrolon has an entirely different method of fixing to your pergola. You also need to ensure that the two walls of the polycarbonate sheets don’t take on water and stay dry and dirt free. In order to do this you essentially need to frame each sheet with custom designed accessories that make the sheets waterproof and give you a surface through which to drill and fix the sheets to your rafters.
In order to seal the top and bottom of the twin wall polycarbonate sheets you need to start with sealing tape. Once affixed, insert the sealed ends into rubber gaskets and then push on an end cap on each side. For the sides of each sheet you will also need rubber gaskets and instead of end caps you can use H Bars or Edge bars depending on where the sheet is in relation to other sheets. You can fix the H bars and Edge bars to the rafters by drilling through them and fixing with screws.
Barge and Ridge capping
Your pergola may also need some metalgoods to finish off its roof effectively. Barge capping covers the end of your sheets and is attached to the end rafter of your pergola to create a waterproof seal. Ridge capping is used on gable pergolas and allows the roof sheets to sit under a cap that again prevents water from getting into the structure.
