Operable/Retractable System may be tied to BIM

Custom designed aluminum motorized retractable roofs can be applied to any superstructure, at any scale. We work with architects to develop a solution to meet their vision. The infill material into the aluminum framing (glass, polycarbonate, ETFE, photovoltaic panels) and their performance are specified by the architectural team. 

This skylight sits on a curb or structure by others. A double slope or A frame shape is one of many solutions for the superstructure. This is a bi-part operable solution where the roof slides left and right from the middle of the slope. Once open, the motorized roof (moving panels) are parked  on top of the fixed panels at the perimeter edges. This is a 50% open solution.
