444 North Capitol
The owner of 444 North Capitol chose to bring adaptability to the building’s rooftop terrace, an event space used by several organizations in busy Washington, D.C., by incorporating an En-Fold retractable awning.
With a simple, wireless remote control, the En-Fold is deployed across the terrace and is tensioned using a patent-pending belt drive system. Strong architectural fabric panels shield the area below from inclement weather or harsh sunlight. The En-Fold can withstand 50 mile per hour winds when fully tensioned, and is installed at a slight incline to shed rainwater and prevent water from pooling on the fabric panels.
With the addition of the En-Fold, event planners can take advantage of the rooftop’s view of iconic D.C. landmarks, while assuring that guests will enjoy a consistently comfortable environment— all with the push of a button.
