Outback® Flat Verandah

Adapt the versatile Stratco Outback Flat Verandah to your home

Create a functional outdoor living area that will enhance your home and lifestyle with the smooth, simple, uncluttered lines of the classic Stratco Outback Flat Roof Verandah. The versatile Flat Roof Verandah system can be configured to cover any area around the home.

It is ideal as a single unit or incorporated with a gable roof, curved roof, or opening roof system. Available as either a freestanding structure or attached to the home it can be used as a verandah, patio or carport. With the addition of the Stratco Outback Rooflite™ you can supply filtered light to the underside. The beams can span up to 8.4 metres and are available in either 120mm or 150mm sizes.

I was so impressed by the 1-piece profiled beams that were so strong they could span 8.4 metres without support columns giving me beautiful uninterrupted views.

Four patio configurations to choose from:

  • Type One has a 4.5 metre maximum span and only requires an outside beam to support the structure, although most units use perimeter beams on all sides to provide the best appearance.
  • Type Two is the same, but with an overhang at the front to increase the covered area to 5.4 metres.
  • Type Three has support beams across the span so the roof sheets can run horizontally for a different appearance.
  • Type Four has extra support beams and a purlin through the middle to give it a span of 8.4 metres.

Design Considerations

Gable or curved units attached between a flat unit and an existing structure

Gable or curved units which are attached between a flat unit (excluding pergolas) and an existing house, are only be considered attached if the gable or curved unit is attached to the existing house (C) for its full length (L) and the longest side of the combined unit (B) does not exceed twice the gable or curved unit length (L). The flat unit in this case can be considered attached. This style requires all coloumns to be embedded into footings.

Patios Verandah Carport Outback Flat Configuration

The unit is considered attached if: B = 2 L or less, and C = L

 

Gable or curved units attached to a flat unit on one or both sides

Gable or curved units which are attached on one or both sides to flat units, (excluding pergolas) must be attached to a house for at least 75% of the gable or curved opening length (O) to be considered attached. Flat units must be deemed attached as detailed in the flat unit section below for the gable or curved unit to be considered attached.

Gable or curved units are considered attached on both sides if both the flat 1 and 2 comply with the attachment rules for flat units as detailed below. Gable or curved units are considered attached on one side if only one flat unit exists and it complies with the attachment rules for flat units as detailed below.

The gable | curved unit is considered attached if:  C = 0.75 of O or more

Flat units

A patio or carport is deemed to be freestanding unless it is attached to an existing house (C) for at least 75% of the length of its shortest side (A), and its longest side (B) does not exceed twice the length of its shortest side.

The unit is considered attached if:  B = 2 A or less, and C = 0.75 A or more

 

Design Options

When designing a Stratco Verandah, consideration should be given to both the roof sheet direction, and the orientation of any openings and overhangs involved. These are often determined by appearence and drainage requirements. Some of the normal configurations are shown below. Contact Stratco if assistance is required.
