The ADD-A-Room Screen Room, Patio Enclosure is a three-sided room that is installed on a deck or patio and attached to your home, cottage or trailer. The screened room can be purchased with either a soft vinyl roof or an insulated aluminium roof. The Add-A-Room Screen Room, Patio Enclosure provides protection from the sun, rain and bugs and will allow you to obtain greater enjoyment from the outdoors during the summer.
There are many different colors, standard sizes and heights. Custom sizes are also available.
The following is a description of the insulated aluminium Roof Patio Enclosure.
The screen room frames are made of fully extruded aluminium 1 5/16 by 11/16 and 1.27 millimetres thick. The frames are baked, powder coated paint finish and available in several colours. The frames are fully screened in fibreglass screening that has 18 x 16 threading per square inch. The screen frames have aluminium cross bar support to enhance the strength of the frame. The cross bars are painted in a manner similar to the frames themselves. Each screen frame is pre-joined to the next one using a 1" flexible vinyl hinge. One screen door is provided, which slides on nylon wheels in a rigid black plastic track. The wheels are set in stainless steel brackets.
The screen room frames are either 22" or 44" wide depending on the size of Screen Room, Patio Enclosure ordered. Normal screen frame height is 74" and an optional 83" high screen frame is available.
The standard height at the high point of the Screen Room, Patio Enclosure (where it attaches to the home or trailer) is 96" with 74" high screen frames. This height can vary from 88" to 116" depending on the options ordered.
The Insulated Aluminium Roof is available in either 3", 4" or 6" thickness. The greater the thickness of the roof, the greater strength and the higher the insulation value.
The roof is installed above the screen frames and results in a roof structure which is tight, thus being more resistant to bug entry. The Patio Enclosure may be left up all year round, when installed on a deck or patio that does not move in relation to the home or trailer to which it is attached. The Insulated Aluminium Roof has excellent water run-off and can carry most normal snow loads (up to 57 pounds per square foot). Since the roof is insulated it will cut down the amount of heat transferred from the roof in the summer time and so the Screen Room, Patio Enclosure will be cooler than with a soft vinyl roof.
Where the Screen Room, Patio Enclosure is installed under a home roof, an eaves-trough must be installed on the house to avoid significant amounts of water being cast onto the Screen Room, Patio Enclosure roof from the house.
A roof track and receiver extrusion are installed to accept the roof. The screen room roof is made of one pound expanded polystyrene vacuum pressed to .024" stucco embossed aluminium skin on both sides. The aluminium has an baked, powder coated white paint finish. The thickness of the insulated roof varies from 3"-6" depending on the size of the roof projection and the customer's needs. The greater the thickness of the roof , the greater strength and the higher the insulation value. The roof panels are 4' wide and are joined by a .075" wall thickness extrusion (.08" on the 6" thick roof panels) which forms an "I" beam for greater strength. Extrusions are mounted above of the existing side screen frames, to enclose the screen room and accept the gable ends (triangular 2" thick insulated panels at each end of the Screen Room, Patio Enclosure to fully enclose the room). The connection to the top of the screen room frames reduces screen frame movement in wind. The front extrusion supporting the roof is in turn supported by aluminium posts (same paint finish as the roof), which are placed at every second joint in the screen room frames (approximately 90" apart).
The screen room roof comes with a gutter for the front and fascia for the sides. Optional color aluminum strips can be purchased to dress up the fascia and gutter.
All parts are made of rust resistant aluminium except for the soft vinyl hinge connecting the screen room frames, the wheel assembly, and tracks for the sliding door and the inside of the gable ends which are white PVC and the optional vinyl gutter and fascia trim.
