Benefits of OpenAire Aluminum Structures

Energy Efficiency:

  • With a maintenance-free aluminum truss structure and translucent or transparent roof and wall, an OpenAire enclosure or retractable skylight will mean that operators have a decreased dependence on artificial lighting,
  • OpenAire structures create natural ventilation, which substantially reduces a building’s reliance on a mechanical HVAC system and ventilation resulting in substantial energy savings in the long-term.
  • In a typical aquatic environment, an operable roof allows you to turn off costly dehumidification systems, This can provide energy savings of up to 30% over traditional construction, creating tremendous long-term value. In addition, there are cost savings can be found in omitting the installation of air conditioning, as the building itself is naturally ventilated.

Engineering Quality

  • Minimum L/200 deflection criteria in every design
  • Proven performance in all climates, and engineered to withstand extreme environmental conditions such as sub-zero temperatures, snow loads, high winds, seismic disturbance, precipitation, humidity and more
  • Capable of free span enclosures of over 165’ (50m) using an all-aluminum frame; capable of span aluminum dome configurations more than 300’ (91m)
  • Customized designs can open up to 100% of the roof area
  • Minimum 1” (25mm) roof glazing using insulated panels, glass, polycarbonate or ETFE
  • Thermal breaks and vapour barriers
  • Aluminum is much lighter in weight than steel, which reduces the overall loads on your structure. Which can be critical for renovations or historic building additions.
