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.

Chris got a spanline deck - once it went thru council, it happened quickly. Easy communication, the deck looks amazing, they also helped follow up a gutter problem that was not their fault at all. Highly recommend!

We have a very large north-facing deck that bakes in the summer sun and was not very usable. When it rained our front stairs became a waterfall.Jamie from Spanline designed and quoted for a roof to cover about half the deck. This allows winter sun to still get into the house but protects the stairs and front door from rain and gives us a great shaded space to use. He also designed in the option of being able to enclose the space with walls later if we want to.The work was done promptly and to a high standard by the local tradesman and there was no dispute when we changed a couple of details late in the design stage.We couldn't be happier with the result and highly recommend Spanline. Not the cheapest option but definitely worth it for the quality of materials and installation.

Absolutely love my little deck awning. The finish is perfect. Shahil and Scott were great communicators, easy to deal with and paid attention to detail! Great job guys. 👏
We recently had a first-storey awning installed by Jason and his team at Spanline Coffs Harbour. Our original area was small and the wooden deck had deteriorated. Jason came out and met with us and we talked through what we wanted to achieve with area. Jason gave us several patio design options to choose from as well as a variety of colours and materials for the flooring. Jason recommended the Spanline Double U roof sheet advising us it was low maintenance and had long spans so we wouldn't need as many posts. Once we'd agreed on design things moved pretty quickly. The builders were very professional and were really pleasant to deal with. They even roped off the build area to make sure our gardens and lawn areas were protected. When the finished they left the site clean and tidy. The build quality is top notch and the Double U roof and new decking blend perfectly like it has always been a part of our house. Jason and his team were great and very easy to deal with. We honestly could not be happier with our new outdoor area that we can now sit out on and enjoy the views. We highly recommend Spanline.
