The scope for this project was to design and build a retractable roofing system that could be integrated into the custom build structure that was already in place. The challenge was that as a rule most roof systems need a degree of fall to dispose of the water. The outcome was to use the Helioscreen Pure HS20 system with stand down side fall. This gave the owners the ability to have shade and be waterproof for those inclement days.
The stand down side fall creates a flow of water to the side rather than the front enabling a flat installation while still adhering to the product requirements. With the robust wind rating, the height of the installation was not an issue for this project.
With the many Dulux colour options for powder coating the product was able to be seamlessly integrated into the existing structure. As with the fabric, many colour options were available to the owners and they were able to select a fabric that blended into the colours of the exterior walls.
What was once an unprotected and unusable area has become a very useful outdoor entertainment space.
