“Nothing is left to chance”
Tolder Tolder “This is a reduced version of our system for large folding awnings. It has smooth steel rods that are tensed to give support of the aluminium profile, on which the stainless steel pulleys slide. The closed circuit consists of 3-mm anti-twist cable with an adjusted system of pulleys.
By works management it was made using a special self-cleaning fabric. In addition, loose flying removable roofs were designed to allow for future maintenance while protecting and concealing the awnings when folded up.”

34 Flat awning
Tolder Tolder “Our work included conditioning one of the longest internal streets. In combination with hanging vegetation 35 awnings measuring about 2.40 m wide by about 10 m long were installed, going from one building to another, at different heights, giving each awning a special slope and warping.
The awnings are operated by means of a closed circuit cable that moves in one direction or another depending on whether the awning is being folded or unfolded. All the driving mechanisms are controlled from a central management system acting on climatic conditions such as light, rain or wind.”
Fabric covering for the new bus terminal
The covering is comprised of 8 central bodies alternating with different curvatures in a warped curved shape about 24.75 x 8.00 m. The warped shape is achieved with patterns defined by a specific software program, joined with high frequency pressure and heat welds.
