Retractable Roof Enclosures

Our retractable enclosures bring your space to life.

Retractable roof buildings developed by OpenAire includes the roof panels that can be opened or closed at the push of a button. When closed, the building is heated or cooled like any other space. When open the building becomes a naturally ventilated indoor/outdoor venue. This allows the space to be used year-round, regardless of weather conditions.

There are many ways to open the retractable roof panels sliding up or down tracks and/or stacking when open. OpenAire can move both the roof panels and the entire structure. There is a unique custom solution to be found for every project.
