Retractable Glass or Polycarbonate Roofs

 

 

Retractable Roof

Is a Retractable opening roof system, which is designed to open polycarbonate, Glass or solid Panels
The top panel is in a fixed position with the other panels sliding under the fixed one.
The maximum projection is 5800mm.
The widths between the rafters is determined by the type of panel used.
Polycarbonate and the solid panels have a maximum width of 3000mm between the rafters.
Glass has a maximum width of 2000mm between the rafters.
All systems work on a minimum of a 6 degree fall, which equates to a drop of 105mm per 1m.
The Retracta Roofs can be mounted off walls or above roof lines.
We can even install the Retracta Roof in the middle of your roof, to bring the outdoors in
and open up your space and provide weather protection at the same time.

The Panels:
You have three choices of panels: 10mm twin wall polycarbonate, 11.5 mm laminated glass and 25mm insulated sandwich panels.

Twin wall polycarbonate is extremely strong but lightweight, it has an air pocket in the middle of two sheets of polycarb.
It’s available in Clear, Silver Gray and Opal, it has a span of up to 3000mm between the rafters.
11.5 mm Glass, these panels are laminated toughened glass panels that can be tinted to reduce the heat.
The maximum span of the glass is 2000mm between the rafters.

25mm insulated sandwich panels are made with a sheet of powder coated aluminium on top
with insulating foam panel in the middle with another sheet of aluminium on the bottom

The Motors:
We use top quality, extremely reliable Becker motors from Germany.
These tubular motors are radio controlled. They can be simply plugged into a standard power socket
without the need for hard wiring.

The panels move by using two heavy duty chains, one on either side of the panels.
All the drive mechanisms are made of metal with roller bearings which ensures maximum strength and reliability
which ensures they won’t wear out like fabric belt systems.

We can coordinate with owners, builders, architects and engineers to ensure your retractable roof is designed to your specifications.
