Whether you’re covering your restaurant patio with a retractable roof or adding a massive skylight to bring ambiance to a shopping mall, OpenAire can provide the entertainment retractable roof or skylight solution you need. From design through engineering, manufacturing and installation, OpenAire will work with you to create a unique and light-filled space that your visitors will love.
OpenAire advantages include:
Natural light and illumination: Our structures allow exceptional natural light to filter into your space. OpenAire roof glazing and sidewall options include glass and polycarbonate. ETFE can also be incorporated into your design. An OpenAire roof creates a wonderfully bright and spacious environment.
Weather that’s perfect all year round: OpenAire retractable roof enclosures and operable skylights will bring your building to life. Opening up to the sun and fresh air, they draw in the warmth of a beautiful day while closing to inclement weather, offering users year-round enjoyment. With OpenAire, the creation of unique and appealing spaces will draw patrons despite what the weather brings.
Maximizing space and revenue: OpenAire’s designs help to increase space by enclosing rooftop patios or additional existing spaces. This maximizes occupant capacity and gives operators the ability to accommodate more guests and boost their revenue.
Maintenance-free: Unlike steel framing, OpenAire’s maintenance-free, thermally-broken aluminum framing system stands up to moist, chemical atmospheres in any climactic region.
Energy efficiency through natural ventilation: With the roof open, heat rises and escapes. Mechanical air conditioning and dehumidification are not required. When the roof is closed, thermal breaks and vapor barriers control condensation and air filtration. The solar gain offsets much of winter heating requirements, all of which adds up to energy savings of up to 27 percent over traditional construction.
Lower lifecycle costs: With a maintenance-free aluminum truss structure and decreased dependence on artificial lighting, dehumidification and air conditioning, OpenAire structures are cost-efficient to operate and maintain, resulting in tremendous long-term value.
Compelte solution for beautiful venues: OpenAire will design custom solutions to meet the needs of your facility’s aesthetic, site and audience. Whether you’re looking for modern lines or rustic charm, OpenAire will create a stunning venue from design to construction.
