Non-Aquatic Retractable Roofs

Whether you own an event space, a shopping mall, or as you can see in our portfolio a theatre, a train station or an observatory… there are lots of reasons your may need and want to add a commercial retractable roof enclosure or skylight.

Multiple studies show that buildings can impact a person’s health, and as citizens of modern societies spend 90 per cent of their time indoors, this is more important than ever. The ability to capture the best of both worlds, inside and outside within a single space truly ensures that your facility can capitalize on any and all activity.

So while a commercial retractable roof may at first seem like an extra, its in fact an economical addition that your space can’t afford to be without.

Our commercial work includes a vast range of facilities. No matter what market you serve, our commercial retractable roof systems can meet your requirements.
