How Do Retractable Roofs Work and What Are Their Benefits?

Louvretec’s new retractable roof is our best blade design yet. Painstakingly designed to achieve perfection, you can now add one to your deck to create a space where shelter, shade and privacy control is at your beck and call. In this guide, we’ll explain how our retractable roof works and its many benefits.

How Does a Retractable Roof Work?

A retractable roof is a type of architectural feature that allows for the open or closed position of a roof depending on the weather or desired use of a space. Traditionally, Retractable roofs can be found in a variety of settings, such as sports stadiums and concert venues. Now you can add one to your home to gain the best of both worlds: sun when you want it and shade when you wish, as well as shelter when the weather turns.

The basic principle behind our retractable roof is that it is composed of a series of blades that can be opened or closed by means of twin powered motors. Our new blades feature “Cushion Closing” providing an even quieter, snugger fit when closed. Made of quality materials with high tolerance gearboxes, the functionality of your Retractable Roof is quiet, smooth, durable and long lasting. 


How Do Retractable Roofs Open?

You can open your roof in one of two ways; adjust the angle of the blades when in the overhead position to allow and omit sunlight or retract them back to grant uninterrupted sunlight and views of the clear blue sky or starry night sky. Louvretec’s Retractable Roofs are retractable, meaning that the entire roof can be opened or closed giving you the benefit of controlling the amount of natural light and ventilation in a space.
