Control Your Business Environment in Brisbane With Custom Made Retractable Awnings and Roofing Systems: How a Fabric Roof Can Make a Difference

The sun is not always kind to Australia; indeed, scorching heat and searing ultraviolet rays cause more than their fair share of problems. Playground equipment in local parks can warm to troublesome temperatures, patrons could skip visiting a restaurant with outdoor seating, and even objects stored outdoors can suffer from the deleterious effects of too much sunshine. Of course, when the threat isn’t the sun, it’s sudden stormy weather. No one wants to experience a downpour during their lunch hour, after all. For these reasons, it’s incredibly important to consider solutions to these issues. The alternative is a costly one: the continual loss of business or product that could otherwise still be yours.

What’s the best way to fight back against the harsh conditions we often experience in Australia? Consider the value inherent in using retractable roofing systems for your Brisbane business. Especially useful for restaurants, cafés, and other areas where people gather outdoors, these installations can provide shade or cover from the rain when necessary, while easily stowing when not in use. At Versatile Structures, we’ve developed an innovative method for creating custom-made retractable roofing that both looks and performs with excellence. Here are the important facts to know about this effective choice.

A leading choice for retractable roofing in Brisbane

Sourced from high-quality manufacturers and selected with your site in mind, these installations come in several forms. Roof awnings offer the most protection, while PVC and drop blinds offer quick protection from inclement weather in a pinch. The solution chosen for your site will depend primarily on its intended purpose. In every case, though, they are easy to operate and highly durable. Each installation has a reliable lifespan of five to ten years, creating the opportunity for a cost-effective investment in customer comfort.

In the event of conditions that could pose a risk to your retractable fabric roofs in Brisbane, such as an extremely stormy event, built-in wind sensors allow the awning to detect when the safety threshold is near. They will then retract automatically. However, most of the European products we use feature wind ratings at or exceeding 40 km/h – so no need to worry about accidental activation on a breezy day.
