New Zealand Classic Car - - The Ultimate Garage Fit-Out -

The garage in which you house and work on your clas­sic ve­hi­cle is a pretty im­por­tant space, but does it feel like a spe­cial, invit­ing place? It’s al­most an un­spo­ken Kiwi tra­di­tion to tin­ker away in cold, dark garages and sheds, re­lent­lessly work­ing to fin­ish that pro­ject car ‘some day’. There are, how­ever, ways to im­prove the us­abil­ity of your workspace, and one of the first places to look is at light­ing.

We all know how frus­trat­ing and un­pleas­ant it can be work­ing in poorly lit con­di­tions, but the so­lu­tion needn’t be elec­tri­cal — sky­lights are an ex­tremely fea­si­ble light­ing so­lu­tion, with huge light­ing ben­e­fits at no cost to your en­ergy con­sump­tion. And where sky­lights are con­cerned, PSP’S Suntuf In­dus­trial/fr is hard to go past as a ma­te­rial of choice.

Suntuf In­dus­trial/fr al­lows 85 per cent light through, while elim­i­nat­ing glare and pro­vid­ing a brighter light — imag­ine a frosted light bulb com­pared to a tra­di­tional trans­par­ent bulb — and cut­ting out 99.9 per cent of harm­ful UV rays.

The poly­car­bon­ate con­struc­tion of Suntuf In­dus­trial/ fr means that it is shat­ter­proof — it’s rated at around 250 times stronger than glass — in ad­di­tion to be­ing light­weight and flex­i­ble. This is re­flected in the war­ranty, which cov­ers light trans­mis­sion for 25 years, and hail and break­age for 15 years — this meets New Zealand dura­bil­ity stan­dards con­tained in the Min­istry of Busi­ness’s Build­ing Code, which is es­pe­cially im­por­tant if re­source con­sent will be re­quired. Ad­di­tion­ally, the prod­uct has the high­est fire rat­ing (Group 1S) within BRANZ.

The re­sults speak for them­selves, though — take a look at this work­shop that has been equipped with PSP Suntuf In­dus­trial/ fr, and the qual­ity of light that is achiev­able in a mod­est garage en­vi­ron­ment. It’s not just for the rich and fa­mous!
