  • Gigantic retractable patio cover system

    • June 2012 to June 2012

    The client requested a large (31 feet wide by 29-1/2 feet projection) three-span retractable waterproof patio cover system to provide rain, heat, sun, glare and UV protection. This would allow them to sit outside and enjoy their garden throughout the year, extending their outdoor entertainment space. For functionality they requested that water drain from the rear of the system into the front beam and down inside the two end posts, exiting at the bottom from a small hole and draining into the flower beds.

    The entire system used one continuous piece of fabric and one motor. The uprights and purlins meet together at a smooth L-shaped angle, flush at the top and without an overhang for a nearly perfectly smooth profile. The system frame and guides are made entirely of aluminum which is powder coated using the Qualicoat® powder coating process. The stainless steel components used were Inox (470LI and 316) which have an extremely high corrosion resistance. The cover has a Beaufort wind load rating Scale 9 (up to 54 mph) with the fabric fully extended and in use. A hood with end caps was also used to prevent rain water and snow from collecting in the folds of fabric when not in use. A running profile from end to end in the rear of the unit was used to attach the Somfy RTS motor which is installed inside a motor safety box. The client chose to control the system with an interior wall switch and a remote control. Concrete footers were installed in the grassy area in front of the unit for mounting the four posts. To allow for a flat vertical mounting surface ledger board using pressure-treated wood was mounted the full 31-foot width, as the client’s house was older and made of uneven stone.

    The client is very satisfied with the results. The retractable patio cover now makes it possible for the client to use a very large area in the rear of her house throughout the year.

  • Retractable pergola cover systems

    • March 2012 to March 2012
    Team Members: ★★★ Eric Scop ★★★, Dale Overmyer Architects

    The architect specified our waterproof retractable patio cover system with single-sided water drainage to attach to the wood beams of a spa building at a high-end residential home on Miami Beach. The product frame and guides are made entirely of aluminum using the Qualicoat® powder coating process. The stainless steel components used were Inox (470LI and 316) which have an extremely high corrosion resistance, a very important feature since this project is installed very close to the ocean. The cover has a Beaufort wind load rating Scale 9 (up to 54mph) with the fabric fully extended and in use. Wind sensors with RTS motors that will connect with a home automation system were also specified by the architect.

    The purpose of the project was to provide sun, glare and UV protection when sitting poolside; to allow the area to be used during a heavy rain storm and even hail; and to extend the outdoor entertainment area Three individual sections, each approximately 6 feet wide by 13 feet projection, open and close with a remote individually or together. This makes it possible for some to enjoy the sun and others to enjoy the shade at the same time. The client wanted something that was proprietary, unique and aesthetically pleasing.

    The project was challenging because the location where the guides would attach was to be custom covered with copper cladding and since our system was made in Europe the size of our retractable patio cover had to be exact to 1/16 of an inch. In addition, the product and delivery time from Europe was approximately nine to 10 weeks so the product had to be ordered early in the construction cycle to meet the client’s installation deadline.

    The client is ecstatic with the results of his retractable patio cover system, making it possible for him to use the spa building throughout the year. The client loves the fact that with his home automation system, he has complete control.
