Lightweight, Durable 3D Roof Structures With Exel Composites Tubes

Lightweight, Durable 3D Roof Structures With Exel Composites Tubes

Exel Composites has developed an innovative 3D roof structure application together with the award-winning, Australia-based PT Architectural Technology.

Exel Composites Australia says together with PT Architectural Technology they have developed a light yet strong concept for a 3D roof structure with composite tubes. The concept consists of three composite tubes with various diameters.

According to Exel Composites, unlike conventional materials like steel or aluminum, composite tubes have a bending radius of up to 6 meters enabling design freedom. Rounded wave-like shapes can be seen in a project realised in Byron Bay, Australia, which is home of a new 5-star beachfront resort.

“In designing the Elements of Byron in Byron Bay, Australia we were able to realise our vision with the design freedom made possible with composites,” says Ellen Murray of PT Architectural Technology.

Exel Composites adds that besides flexibility and versatility in design, composite tubes are light in weight which means reduced construction time and cost with easier installation. They offer outstanding fatigue and durability properties. Composites weather performance is excellent with regard to UV-damage, moisture, and temperature extremes.

“We see many possibilities for composite purlins. Easy construction with a possibility to 3-dimensional shaping on site combined to corrosion resistance from the material’s intrinsic properties offers many advantages for sporting facilities like swimming pools, beachfront pavilions and pergola structures. It provides new limits to architect's creativity,” says Pierre Delaunay, Area Sales Manager of Exel Composites Australia.
