Drive systems: a core competency
One of the most challenging aspects of constructing a retractable roof is identifying and developing an efficient, reliable drive system.
The drive system of a roof includes all moving parts of a retractable roof system. These moving parts are crucial, as they are subject to extremely variable loads. The system needs to function smoothly, without any glitches. Lots of sliding carriages, pins and cables are moving at the same time, often asynchronously — maintaining complete control is essential.
At ECCON, we have more than 20 years’ experience with retractable roof systems, and many more with drive systems and cables. As experts in this field, we are able to offer a full, comprehensive service and guarantee system reliability for many years to come.
