Built to Protect, Designed to Impress: Spanline’s Commitment to Quality

Excellence in design and craftsmanship

Spanline’s Double-U® Roofing system, made from high tensile Aluzinc® coated steel is rigorously tested to stand resilient against the fiercest of weather, including cyclonic conditions. Its superior strength allows for wider spans. This reduces the need for support pillars and creates open, flexible spaces for creativity and play.

Its unique shape with high ribs allows for a shadowing effect that significantly reduces heat absorption. The interlocking panels create a weatherproof seal and the high-gloss finish requires minimal upkeep.

For even more temperature control under the roof, check out our range of Ezi Struct® insulated roof panels. These interlocking sandwich roof panels come in a range of profiles and thicknesses to suit your desired insulation rating or free span requirement.

Spanlites® skylight panels integrate seamlessly with every Spanline roofing system, bringing in natural light while blocking out harmful UV rays and heat. Crafted from durable translucent acrylic and polycarbonate materials, these panels are built to endure and be resistant to both impact and extreme temperature variations. Their glass-like clarity invites sunlight without the glare.

Mullion Creek School Shelter

Case Study: Mullion Creek Primary School

Mullion Creek Primary School reached out and were looking to add a sheltered area for their students between classrooms for added protection and also for an added sheltered area. They weren’t sure what they wanted exactly but they knew they needed a sheltered area.

After going out and looking at the area and speaking with the staff we came up with the idea of adding a freestanding insulated Patio area to the existing slab area. This would give students plenty of sheltered space whilst also providing protection for the children going from classroom to classroom. Wavetek + Insulated roofing panels, PVC Pipes and Spanline guttering were used to achieve this.

We also added Steel powder coated posts coated in Hi-Vis Yellow for safety. This has allowed the students and the staff to have a large, sheltered area to enjoy all year round.

Spanline have completed our home with a beautiful front verandah. I was always worried that adding this after the house was finished would look like an tack on but it was done with such precision that it looks like it was always meant to be there. I couldnt be happier 😊

I have referred Spanline Australia for many of my Clients in Sydney, who are in need of a quality crafted carport, patio or alfresco area, and we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback. From start to finish, their team was professional, efficient, and highly skilled. The quality of their workmanship exceeded my expectations, and the final result truly enhances the appearance and functionality of my client’s homes. I highly recommend Spanline to anyone in need of outdoor living or improved home utility. They deliver top-notch service and outstanding results.

Extremely happy with completed roof we had Spanline Port Stephens erect over our external deck area. Their professionalism and attention to detail throughout our product selection / build process was amazing and we have received a great deal of positive feedback from our family and friends about the quality of the product and workmanship. Many thanks to Steve and Simone.
We have used Spanline for two renovations recently and couldn't be happier with the process, from Seb Godfrey coming out to measure and quote, to material selection and the build process.Where possible they sought to re-use existing materials and structures, offering different materials and options to really try and meet our budget and still get an amazing result.The workmanship is amazing and especially in the instance of our back deck it just linked the house and our yard together in a way our previous mod-wood deck (which was only two years old and had collapsed) simply could not.I cannot recommend Spanline highly enough. The initial quote may seem expensive but I can't reiterate the work quality, the dedication of the staff and the end product is absolutely worth it and I wish I had done it in the first place. I'm looking forward to working with them again in future for other renovations I'm planning.
