Bal Harbour Shops
En-Fold ensures rain won’t cause patrons to seek cover
The owners of the prestigious Bal Harbour Shops chose to bring adaptability to the building’s inner courtyard, an event space and the connection between the shopping center and the multilevel parking/office structure.
With a simple wireless remote control, the En-Fold is deployed across the courtyard space 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 30 psf wind load when fully tensioned, and is installed at an incline to shed rainwater and prevent water from pooling on the fabric panels.
With the addition of the En-Fold, the restaurant owners and event planners can take advantage of the inner courtyard, while assuring that guests will enjoy a consistently comfortable environment - all with the push of a button.
