After being given a relatively easy looking job at CST Composites Kurnell to do, the owner informed me of the high winds associated with the site.
Kurnell is on a peninsular of land between Botany Bay to the west and Bate Bay to the East. With the excessive amounts of sand mining over the last 2twenty years, Kurnell has been left exposed to winds from all directions with little or no natural or man-made structures to diffuse the winds ferocity.
The factory roof was sloping to the east and to the west with a very minimal pitch so a tilted system was needed and luckily for the owner of CST, the roof structure was very robust. Of course, we went through all the relevant engineering approvals, to make sure.
After consulting with engineers we decided to go with the Sunlock tilting system, an Australian produced product with more than enough options and technical backup to do the job.
Since the job was completed 2 years ago Clive has received winds in excess of 90 km/hr on several occasions and nothing has budged.
Clive is now considering putting in another 10 kW System on his eastern roof.
