Go Alfresco with Retractable Roofing

Go Alfresco with Retractable Roofing

No longer reserved for just large-scaled sports stadiums, retractable roofing systems are fast becoming a hot commodity for restaurants and hospitality venues to maximise on space and create dynamic social atmospheres for customers.

With demand for both alfresco-style and dramatic rooftop dining on the rise, retractable roofing structures are being employed nation-wide in restaurants and eateries to allow for patrons to enjoy the outdoors at any time of the year – with solutions for Australia’s many and varying climate zones.

Promoting vibrancy and pedestrian activity, these roofing structures offer a seamless flow between interior and exterior spaces paving the way for a greater return on property, and with more seating options, increased revenue for proprietors.


Environmental advantages of retractable roofing
Aside from the obvious benefits associated to installing retractable structures, ie the control of the elements – sunlight, rain and airflow – a lesser known advantage is the energy efficiency associated with the investment.

With sustainability initiatives becoming more and more prevalent in contemporary architectural design, manufacturers of roofing systems have adopted a greener way of thinking.

The use of insulated glass is also widely utilised in many of the market-leading systems, ensuring warming sunlight is captured in the winter months and deflected in the summer months – keeping power bills down and reducing the need for auxiliary air conditioning units.

Coast Blinds & Shutters’ range of architectural retractable roof and pergola systems are suitable for use in any weather conditions and for a large range of residential and of course commercial spaces.

With widths suitable to any outdoor space, and a solution for even the largest projection requirement – such as the Aristo. The Coast Blinds & Shutters’ Aristo retractable pergola system provides a solution when bigger is best. Reinforced profiles are designed to withstanding bending and can project out to 10m.
