The fabric canopy is supported by a series of aluminium crossbars, and those crossbars are in turn connected to a set of rails. Using a simple belt drive (that sits within the rails) and a remote-controlled motor, the crossbars are pulled back and forth to either end. With the PVC fabric attached – the canopy is then neatly folded away in a matter of seconds.
When extended, the fabric forms a strong and robust canopy, able to withstand winds of up to 100km/h. Each Retractable Roof system comes with its own support frame and it can be retrofitted to suit most existing structures.
