New technologies in hospitality: The retractable roof canopy

Posted on | Posted in Hospitality

As technology innovations continue to shape every industry, the hospitality industry is certainly no exception.

The hospitality sector has always been customer-focused, and thanks to latest advances and developments, industry professionals have even more ways to make sure their customers are happy. Mobile room keys, remote checking in and out, mobile hubspots, tech lounges, the list keeps getting longer and evolving.

One of these advances includes our Cantabria canopy, which has been designed to enable pub, restaurant, hotel and bar owners to get more from their outdoor space and cater for their customers’ needs.

The entire design of our Cantabria is state-of-the-art, but it’s the retractable roof that’s really leading the way in outdoor canopy design and new technologies in hospitality

It’s really easy to use

All it takes is the touch of a button to open and close it.

It can be partially closed

So that customers can still get a breath of fresh air and be sheltered from the elements.

It can be fully opened

To let the sunshine in on glorious day and really give off that al fresco vibe.

It can be fully closed

To protect everybody from the weather – in the rain, snow or wind (100% protection in wind speeds of up to 60km/h).

It can be what you want it to be

You can have multiple retractable roofs installed that can all open and close independently of each other.

It can totally transform your venue

Not everywhere can say they have an area that adapts with the weather and is a real head-turning feature in its own right. (For inspiration, check out this blog, ‘The Cantabria: One canopy, so many different uses.’)

It’s a space booster

Install a Cantabria, and you can create up to 184 additional covers, not to mention making your space look more enticing for all seasons.

Trends come and trends go, but the Cantabria canopy and its retractable roof is one of the new technologies in hospitality that’s guaranteed to give venues the added wow factor for the foreseeable future.
