Our dealer AC Screens & Shutters has recently been appointed to fit a custom Corradi Impact® retractable roof to the outdoor space at Tasha's Café in the iconic Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton, South Africa. 


This project provided quite a challenge for AC Screens & Shutters as the existing structure (also with a retractable roof) needed to be re-designed and replaced almost entirely. "We only retained the front columns as these were already anchored and waterproofed. Although the existing structure was less than a year old, it seems the previous contractor was unable to resolve all the snag-issues, both technically and aesthetically, to the client's satisfaction." according to Ryan Kröger,  director of AC Screens Gauteng branch. It therefore shows the importance of due diligence when appointing a contractor which not only ensures peace of mind, but also avoids acrimonious situations and financial losses.

The Corradi Impact® Retractable Roof System is the same system used on all Corradi structures, and it can also be used on existing Pergolas, provided the Pergola is suitable in terms of design and technical aspects. The Impact® has been in use for more than 20 years and is indeed the 'original' retractable roof system, originally designed by the Corradi brothers. Not that the Impact® has remained exactly the same. As they say, 'there is no substitute for experience' and there is no doubt that the installation of thousands of retractable roofs worldwide through the years has provided a myriad of different conditions which has tested the original design. This experience has allowed Corradi engineers to constantly refine and redesign different aspects of the original retractable roof, to ensure that it remains the best that money can buy.

Both AC Screens and Corradi are honoured and pleased to be involved with Tasha's Café, especially in such a wonderful and well known venue, which will certainly serve to consolidate both our brands in the local HORECA industry, especially after other successful projects for the V & A Waterfront, Cape Town Fish Market and the Bosjes Kombuis. We have already also secured other major, very exciting projects which we will soon be in a position to reveal. The future is indeed an exciting one for both brands.
