We did interior and renovation work in Shivlok Colony which is located on Raipur Road in Dehradun. There was an old shed there, which we removed and installed a polycarbonate sheet (Transparent polycarbonates allow the most light to pass through, which is thus considered the best where maximum light is needed. Other colours reduce light transmission to certain extents – the darker the colour gets, the lower the percentage of light transmission.) source. We improved the framing for which we used 3×1.5 inch APL Apollo Hollow Pipes which weighs 12kg. Its price at that time was Rs. 94 per kg and it was of 18 guage. We used the old framing pipes for the new framing. The grid made in this was kept 3 feet x 5 feet. In this teakwood color of Asian Paints was done after red oxide.
The best thing happened in this that you can see the direct sun from under it and the temperature inside has reduced by 2 degrees. Had the tuffen glass been applied, the heat would transfer completely. In this the slope is given more than 3 inches because in such a large grid the sheet swings slightly which is not visible as such. In this, the thickness of the sheet was kept 3mm, this entire roll comes 4ft, which was priced at Rs 120 per square feet at that time (Vendor: Kwality Hardware Dehradun).
This framing and paragola gave a great look to the interior and it was very much liked by the client. We gave this shed to the party for a total of Rs 350 per square feet. The party was happy with the work.
