Raised Roof Batten System

Our raised roof batten system is an ideal solution for discretely running larger services through a roof cavity.

Durra Panel and Durra Steel Sections were supplied for the new General Purpose Learning area at St Simons The Apostle Primary School in Rowville, Victoria. Ticking the box with a group 2 fire rating, our roof/ceiling system also provides thermal and acoustic performance in one.

The installation was quick, safe and economical (due to the large size; self supporting and walkable load bearing capacity of Durra Panel) together with a large range of aesthetic surface finishes, plus the added benefits of impact resistance, thermal + acoustic insulation Durra Panel is a highly versatile ceiling material with wide ranging applications.

Queensland State Netball Centre

In the wake of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, a new sports facility is starting to take shape in the Sunshine State. The Queensland State Netball Centre in Nathan’s Sports and Athletic Hub will boast a 5000-seat show court as well as changing rooms and sports medicine facilities for community and elite athletes. The State Netball Centre will also play host to Suncorp Super Netball Team, the Queensland Firebirds.

Working together with Hansen Yuncken and the Queensland State Government, Ortech Industries has supplied both Acoustic Ceiling and Wall Systems for the Stadium, with our Durra Acoustic Pattern Panel providing Impact Resistance, Internal Sound Absorption whilst mitigating Traffic Noise Intrusion from the adjacent Pacific Motorway.

Durra Panel has now been installed in 6 of the 8 National Competition’s Home Stadiums – A testament to the high acoustic performance of Ortech Building Systems.

The Queensland State Netball Centre is set for completion mid-2018.

Another Walkable Ceiling For Italy

The last container doors have closed for a large walkable ceiling project in Bologna, Italy. The high end clean room manufacturing facility required over 40,000m2 of our trafficable ceiling system, equivalent in size to a roof over the MCG.

For the past 4 months our Bendigo manufacturing facility has neatly packed over 60 40’ shipping containers of Durra Panel and Durra Steel Sections. Overall a staggering 1,000 tonnes of locally sourced straw fiber and 350 Tonnes of Australian made steel. Jeff Bothe – Workforce and Industry Development Manager from Bendigo City Council came by to congratulate our Factory manager, Jamie Townsend on a great effort.
