Control the weather with the innovative Stratco Outback Sunroof. Its electronically controlled louvres can be opened and closed to your desired position. Let the breeze and sunlight in when the weather is fine; keep the rain and wind out when the clouds set in.

By adjusting the rotating louvres with the hand held remote, the level of sunlight, shade and weather shielding can be controlled. The system has an inbuilt rain sensor that will automatically close the blades if rain is detected. When the louvres are completely shut they form an interlocking profile that provides protection from the weather.

Superior Design

The Stratco Outback Sunroof can cover openings of up to 3.9 metres thanks to its strong, well engineered blades. The pre-painted steel blades have a unique foam insert that makes them very rigid and helps to insulate from any surrounding noise. The moving parts use specially designed bushes for whisper quiet performance, and the blades are driven by a powerful 100 watt, 24 volt DC motor for reliable long life operation. The system is designed to be easy to install. The blades come pre-assembled and the tracks that fit the blades are pre-mitred and cut to length. The louvres fit quickly to the framework and several snap-fitted components are incorporated.

Outback range integration

The Outback Sunroof louvre blades have been specially designed with a unique, softly ribbed profile so they “look and feel” like part of the Stratco Outback family. When the louvres are in the closed position they form an interlocking profile that is both clean-lined and aesthetically similar to Outback Deck.

The Sunroof can be installed as a stand alone unit, or it can be combined with other Stratco Outback products, including the Outback Flat Roof, Multispan or Clearspan Gable, or the new Curved Roof Verandah.

Like other Stratco Outback products, the Sunroof is available in a range of modern high gloss colours that will complement any home or environment.

Strength and long spanning ability

The Stratco Outback Sunroof can cover openings of up to 3.9 metres thanks to its strong, well engineered louvre blades. The louvres have a unique foam core that not only makes them very rigid, but also aids to insulate and dampen any surrounding noise.

The system has been designed, engineered and tested to comply with the relevant safety and building standards.

Quiet, effortless control

Sunroof Louvres rotate with a smooth and quiet operating action. The system incorporates specially designed bushes to prevent any moving parts from generating unnecessary noise, and takes advantage of an insulated foam core which also dampens operating noise.

The louvres are driven by a strong 24 volt DC motor, which is mounted high above the gutter to ensure protection from rain and pooling water. The motor is safe to use, and is controlled at the touch of a button by remote control.

Adjust the level of light, shade and ventilation

The level of sunlight and shade can be controlled by rotating the louvres. Louvres can be rotated to the fully open position to allow for complete overhead sun, or partially open to provide shade and protection while allowing for adequate ventilation.

The opening direction of the louvres can be aligned in any one of four directions during installation to optimise light and ventilation control.

Rain protection

When the louvres are in the closed position they form an interlocking profile that provides protection from the rain. A rain sensor is fitted to the unit as standard equipment so the louvres automatically close when rain is detected, maintaining a dry covered area underneath.


Colorbond steel, stainless steel, and powder-coated aluminium and plastic materials are used throughout to ensure optimum corrosion protection.

The entire system has been durability tested to 20,000 cycles (equivalent to two full cycles per day for more than 25 years).

A powerful 100 Watt motor is used to ensure the system operates reliably for life. It is fitted with a thermal cut-out and adjustable limit stops to prevent damage from misuse.

Easy to install

Attention to detail has ensured the Outback Sunroof can be quickly and easily installed.

The louvres are delivered to the site pre-assembled with foam core and end caps. The tracks are pre-mitred and cut to length to reduce the overall installation time.

The louvres have been designed to be quickly fitted to the framework using a patented, spring loaded bayonet mounting system.

The total system clips and fastens together with the integration of specially designed, snap-fitted components.
