A retractable roof is a type of roofing system that can be opened and closed as desired, allowing for control over the exposure to outdoor elements. It is typically used in large structures such as stadiums, arenas, and some architectural designs for commercial and residential buildings.
The retractable roof consists of a series of movable panels or sections that can slide, fold, or roll to either cover or uncover the space beneath it. This flexibility enables the adjustment of natural light, ventilation, and protection from the weather conditions, providing a versatile environment.
Retractable roofs offer advantages such as versatility, allowing for both indoor and outdoor experiences, and the ability to adjust the amount of natural light and ventilation. They can enhance the usability and comfort of a space by providing shade, reducing heat or glare, and protecting against rain or snow.
