Retractable enclosures let community pools run aquatics programs 

OpenAire’s fully customized retractable enclosures are making community pool designs affordable for municipalities of every size. When Fairfield, CA (population 114,756) renovated the Allan Witt Aquatic Complex, OpenAire’s retractable roof gave the town the natural light and ventilation of an outdoor pool, the year-round usability of an indoor pool, an annual energy savings of up to 27%, and no maintenance costs, all in one location. These reduced costs made the structure affordable for Allan Witt’s budget, while the inviting design has attracted large numbers of guests since opening.

"There was a need and enough people with foresight to see [and make] it happen - that's how the community and aquatic center came about. OpenAire's retractable roof was key to making the project possible."
- Pat Austin, Aquatic Director at Paragould AR
