|Shading Co-efficient Ratio(SCR)||Light Transmission(LT)|
More Light Less light
|Shading Co-efficient (SC): A ratio of the warming effect of the sun’s rays through a sheet divided by the sun’s warming effect through 3mm float glass (300-2500nm). The lower the figure the cooler it is under the sheet.
||Light Transmission (LT): % of visible light transmission (400 - 700nm) that passes through the sheet. The lower the figure the less light passes through the sheet.|
Laserlite® 2000 is backed by a lifetime warranty against loss of light transmission for domestic applications and a 10-year warranty against breakage caused by hailstones up to 25mm in diameter.

Summary of Test Compliances
Laserlite® Polycarbonate roofing is suitable for use in bush fire prone areas, backed by CSIRO appraisal. Laserlite® Polycarbonate Roofing is self extinguishing, stops the spread of flame and also has excellent fire resistant properties. Therefore, this product complies with many fire related tests (refer test compliances table for a complete list of fire related test compliances).
Laserlite® Polycarbonate Roofing is suitable for use in high wind load areas. Roma, Greca and Trimdek profiles meet the requirements of AS 1170.2.2002 SAA Loading code Part 2 – Wind Loads.
The tests have been conducted according to AS4040.2 -1992 conditions (methods of testing sheet roof and wall cladding, method 2: resistance to wind pressures for non-cyclone regions, which references AS1562.1-1992). The table below summarises the test results obtained. The estimates of ultimate loads, which are based on the assumption that ultimate loads are reached when the maximum principal stress reach the ultimate stress of the polycarbonate sheet (60 Mpa), are included in the table. Plots of the maximum principal stress v’s load for each of the profiles tested follow the table.
|End span (mm)||Internal span (mm)||Factored Ultimate Load (kPa)
|Failure Load (kPa)
|Failure Load (kPa)
|Roma 0.8mm Pressure||800||1000||1.59+||1.20|
|Trimdek 0.8mm||900||1200||0.82||1.10; 1.08; 1.06||1.01|
These results have been achieved using the standard Laserlite® installation instructions.
Roma and Greca profiles also meet the requirements of TR440, Deemed to Comply for the Darwin Cyclone Area.
Laserlite® Polycarbonate roofing is suitable for use where boundary conditions apply, backed by CSIRO appraisal.
