Haven't you wondered how beautiful it would be if you were just able to open the roof of your shelter and take a peek into the open sky above? Maybe retractable roofs can help. These roofs can be opened and then retracted back to their position.
Mostly associated with sporting arenas where roofs can be opened and closed depending on weather. Premium retractable roofs are fast becoming a commonplace infrastructure.
To make a retractable roof it is important to choose a material which is flexible. Though metals like aluminum or stainless steel can be used, they are rarely used due to their good conductance to heat (or cold).
Every component of retractable roof design is an economic benefit in itself. By substituting raw materials needed to make concrete with polymers and fibers, cost incurred in procurement of materials is reduced to a large extent.
Retractable roof structures have versatile designs. They can be extended and retracted at any number of times and at any time. Being open to the sky doesn't mean that it can't act as a conventional roof.
Depending on weather conditions, they can be used for insulation against harsh elements of nature. Designing, fabricating and manufacturing a retractable roof demands expertise and ingenuity.
