Rain or shine. Windy or calm. RayLen Vineyards & Winery rarely has to cancel events due to inclement weather, thanks to a pavilion enclosure designed, fabricated and installed by The Dize Company.

The winery, located just outside Winston-Salem in Mocksville, N.C., needed the enclosure to be versatile enough to provide protection when needed, but to fold away when blue skies and sunshine call for a true outdoor event. The Dize Company devised a system of 21 curtains made of Buff colored Patio 500 with windows of 20-gauge clear vinyl that hang from the wooden pavilion.

“If the weather’s nice, they can roll up all of the curtains so people can gather under the pavilion and still feel like they’re outside,” said Eric Brandon, a sales representative with The Dize Company.

When rolled down, the curtains zip together to prevent air leaks and anchor into the cement pad using recessed pool anchors. To comply with fire code requirements, they installed two panels that function like doors when all of the panels are rolled down. The doors also make it easy for catering carts to roll through to the food preparation area.

And clear vinyl windows maintain a view of the surrounding vineyard.

“We had done work at other wineries in the area, so we knew how important having a view was,” Brandon said. “Guests like to see the vineyard because it really establishes the feel for the event.”

Now that you’ve been given an in-depth look at RayLen’s pavilion, learn about the pieces and parts that created such a versatile structure – all available through Trivantage.

First up, Patio 500®. With exceptional resistance to mildew and UV rays, this waterproof fabric is the perfect choice for awnings, canopies and commercial installations in sunny, high humidity areas. Made with wick and craze resistant polyester weft-inserted warp knit scrim, Patio 500 has a matte, linen-like finish that combines long-lasting good looks with exceptional dimensional stability and superior strength. It accepts graphics including heat-sealed and inset fabrics, silk screening, hand painting, appliqué and more. The underside of the fabric is the same color unless otherwise noted as duplex (different colors for the top and bottom). With 34 different color and texture varieties, you’re sure to find the best fit for your project.

For the windows of this type of enclosure, you’ll want to use clear vinyl. Trivantage offers a variety of convenient clear vinyl rolls in a variety of weights, as well as some flame resistant options.

For optimal visual clarity, good stability and very good UV resistance look to polished vinyl sheets, including O’Sea™ and Strataglass, which offer scratch resistant coating, or Crystal Clear 20/20 and Regalite, which are premium polished sheets.

Depending on your project and the surrounding environment, we have zippers that work in every possible scenario. From YKK® Aquaguard® zippers that shed water to corrosion resistant YKK® Vislon® zippers, our product offerings run the gamut. For even more variety, we also offer zippers in a variety of colors, including black, gray, onion, light beige, natural and white.

When it comes down to pool anchor hardware, Trivantage’s No. 50 deluxe brass anchor is your best bet. It remains flush with the pool deck when not in use, and is highly corrosion resistant. It also allows the cover to be easily and securely installed by unscrewing the bolt to receive “S” hooks on a rubber tie, a rubber tie hole, or the rounded ring end of the stainless steel spring. There are no threads to strip at the top of the bolt. Even further, it’s best paired with Spring – Pool Cover made of Type 304 stainless steel.

We know these projects can feel like huge undertakings, but we’re here to help take the worry out of your work. With a variety of offerings to suit your customers’ needs, you can build a final product of which you can be proud.
