Description:

Briefly, this project is a stationary awning composed of a welded structure with 2 retractable sections.

Purpose:

Under specific requirements from our client, the main purpose of this project was to protect people from the sun when they were seated, by adding a stationary awning. However, he also liked the idea of having a retractable awning so he could open or close the awning when needed. In that case, due to the size of the terrace, we created a stationary awning with two retractable sections inside it so he could have the best of both worlds!

What's unique:

This project was complex in many ways. The shape and size of this terrace are two characteristics that made this project a challenge for us. With 242 yards of fabric, made in only 1 section, we were able to create a large 5' high X 105' wide X 17' projection awning, following the round shape of the terrace on the left side and allowing 2 open areas closer to the right side. These 2 open spaces were made to receive 2 motorized retractable awnings of 20' wide X 11'6'' projection each. Finally, with having those two retractable awning in the middle, we had to make sure no rain would go through when they were deployed.

Results:

The result of this project was exactly what our customer wanted. He can now fill his terrace from April to November every year.
