Dakota Folding Arm

Compact, stylish and highly adaptable, the Dakota is popular when space dictates a thoughtful solution.

When sunny conditions bring penetrating heat, glare and harmful UV rays, utilising outdoor areas can be unbearable. Without effective shade cover these entertainment and relaxation areas are unusable. The Issey Dakota elegantly extends your living space by acting as a retractable roll out roof.

This beautifully constructed, folding-arm system pivots to any angle from horizontal through to 45 degrees, protecting you from lower sun angles and allowing light rain to easily run off. Its elongated headbox is fully enclosed giving a neat, compact appearance that is beneficial for smaller areas or low clearances. The Dakota brings a sleek, contemporary look to exterior entertainment and lifestyle.

Dakota’s stylish, low profile is especially suited to compact patios and terraces, making it ideal for multi-unit developments requiring high-quality designer appeal. Additionally, Dakota requires low maintenance making it an ideal choice for Strata Bodies and commercial applications.
