Outback® Cooldek


Control the climate with Stratco’s innovative Cooldek insulated panel. Cooldek provides roofing, insulation and a beautiful ceiling all in one product. Cooldek is designed to be strong enough to span significant lengths unsupported while providing outstanding thermal performance. Cooldek is relatively simple to install, and even has an inbuilt rebate to conceal electrical wiring for fans and light fittings.


Cooldek Outback Patio

Insulated advantage for cooling comfort

Stratco Cooldek roofing features a polystyrene core that is permanently bonded to a smooth, easy to clean coloured steel underside and a profiled, coloured steel topside. The insulating properties of Cooldek reduce heat from above on hot days which significantly increases comfort levels under the roof. It also reduces noise from heavy rain and will aid in keeping the interior of your home cool, reducing your energy costs and your carbon footprint.

Four patio configurations to choose from:

  • Type One has a 4.5 metre maximum span and only requires an outside beam to support the structure, although most units use perimeter beams on all sides to provide the best appearance.
  • Type Two is the same, but with an overhang at the front to increase the covered area to 5.4 metres.
  • Type Three has support beams across the span so the roof sheets can run horizontally for a different appearance.
  • Type Four has extra support beams and a purlin through the middle to give it a span of 8.4 metres.

Many roof options to choose from:

You have two top profiles to choose from; either the traditional corrugated shape of Cooldek CGI or the high performance decking shape of Cooldek Classic. For the underside contour, there is a choice of smooth or two ribbed finishes. The underside is available in white or a choice of high gloss colours.
You can choose from three insulation thicknesses; 50mm, 75mm and 100mm, for increasing levels of insulation and greater spanning capabilities. The topside colour choices include a wide range of popular colours to integrate your patio into existing colour schemes.

Impressive strength, incredibly long spans

Exceptional strength allows Cooldek to span up to an impressive 7.2 metres unsupported. These large spans reduce the number of beams and framework required, which offers you an uncluttered appearance and clear views.
