Operation of a retractable structure
Let’s take a look at how retraction of a Kopron retractable structure actually works. A structure to be folded that is 25 metres long covers up to 9 metres, folding covers approximately 40% of the entire surface area. In order to move the retractable structure and accelerate operations, the help of 4 people is recommended: two should be at the end of the structure and two in the middle of the external sides. First of all, the tensioning chains and any possible snow chains should be released. A couple of people should be in charge of handling, a procedure that should be carried out in a synchronized manner and aligned on both sides. A couple of people should check to make sure that the guides on the ground are free from obstructions, are clean and allow for correct sliding of the wheels. This operation can be carried out in approximately twenty minutes with complete ease. With this kind of technology your company activities can be covered and uncovered according to requirements.
