RETRACTABLE STRUCTURES

Our Retractable warehouses are specifically designed to make the most efficient use of space & provide the maximum level of flexibility. These warehouses can not only be used to create expandable storage spaces and allow cranes to lift goods directly from the warehouse floor, but they can also create bridges between buildings that can be retracted when need be to allow vehicles to pass through. 

 

At ACE we work with two manufacturers for Retractable Structures.  The first is Kopron who produces steel framed units with fabric covers and the second is Giulio Barbieri who produces aluminum framed units with fabric covers.  Our Retractable structures have several unique features that give them a distinct edge over traditional brick & mortar storage units. Both Kopron and Giulio Barbieri are Italian companies and there are pros and cons to either option as follows:  

 

Steel

  • They have higher wind and snow load ratings (Snow loads: 30lbs psf, Wind loads: 70mph with 3 second gusts up to 100mph) *Installed on tracks in the extended position*

  • These structures retract up to 50-70% of their extended length

  • Warranty: 10 years on the Frame, 6 years (sliding scale) on the PVC Covers

  • These structures are the more cost effective option

 

Aluminum

  • These structures offer the most mobility

  •  They have lower wind and minimal snow load ratings (Snow loads: 3lbs psf, Wind loads: 60mph) *Installed on tracks in the extended position*

  • These structures retract up to 85% of their extended length

  • Warranty: 5 years on the Frame, 2 years (sliding scale) on the PVC Covers

Both

  • high degree of retractability (automatic or manual operation)

  • customized storage capacity that is fully modular & customized to meet your size requirements.

  • strength, durability & safety

Both options offer their users a quick and efficient solution, as they can be ordered, manufactured and installed in about 75-90 days.  All of our structures are made to order.
