Portuguese restaurant with IQ retractable awning roof

Salt Bay Restaurant

This seaside restaurant enjoys a stunning location overlooking the Portuguese coast, with the majority of its diners opting to enjoy the weather from the outdoor terrace seating area. An IQ retractable awning roof system was installed as part of the café renovation, providing the option for easily adjustable protection from the sun and occasional rain.

The awning roof can be easily and quickly retracted and opened via the use of a simple remote and keypad system from inside the restaurant. The outer frame is powder coated in white in a nod towards its bright coastal surroundings.

Choosing to integrate an adjustable outdoor shading solution ensures that customers can continue to enjoy an al fresco dining experience regardless of the weather, as the awning roof provides gentle shading during the heat of the day, while also creating a weathertight roof against rain showers.

The café renovation also saw the integration of slim framed sliding glass doors and frameless structural glass walls to the main restaurant building. The transparent glazed facades create an elegantly seamless indoor-outdoor living feel for diners that choose to sit indoors, allowing them to continue to enjoy the surrounding sea views.
