Barrel Vault Awnings bring in a modern design with added function. The natural curve shape of the awning allows a more natural breeze to occur, hence allowing areas with limited space to control air flow. Barrel Vaults are constructed from curved aluminium box sections set to a radius to suit the sheet size and application. (Note: 8mm twin wall sheets can not be curved tighter than a 1400mm radius)
The rafters can be supplied open curved or welded and made into a truss for even greater spans.
The frames are fully engineered and designed to meet the Australian Standards for Wind Loads.( See engineering drawings under tech info).
All barrel vaults use powder coated aluminium frames and 8mm twin wall sheets. Some added options include gutters, infill panels and flashings.
