UAE Retractable Roof #3185 Project Description

A blazing summer sun drifts across Abu Dhabi’s horizon, creating  a stifling 104 to 122 degrees F on the Alhan restaurant patio. More than half of the restaurant’s total square footage is patio and in this heat it cannot be used.

Libart addressed the challenge and created a transformation in this area with its weatherproof retractable enclosure, allowing year-round use while preserving the outdoor view. The retractable roof is glazed with reinforced multi-wall polycarbonate sheets, providing 99% ultraviolet radiation protection, excellent insulation for climate controlled spaces and good solar protection.  It allows  the optimal amount of sunlight without discomfort to the patrons inside the enclosure. Motorized operations allow the roof to retract, creating a 75% opening from a central control unit.

There is an automatic close function in case of rain. Due to the new smoking regulations on enclosed spaces, a simple extension wouldn’t have worked. With Libart retractable patio roofs, sliding glass side walls, all or part of the patio can be converted into an outdoor area.

Libart’s kinetic architectural solution enabled year-round use of this restaurant patio for any occasion.  It nets the owner an amazing return on his investment because he can place more tables inside his restaurant and net more use out of each table. The collaboration of entrepreneur and Libart engineers provided the most unique dining experience in all of Abu Dhabi.
