Giulio Barbieri has introduced the Ready Box series of retractable tunnels. The materials used to manufacture these retractable tunnels are of primary and long lasting quality and are subject to special treatments to increase resistance against aggressive weather conditions. They are composed of a solid aluminium frame and top cover made of Ferrari PVC coated fabric. All retractable tunnels can be customised with colours and logos.


Ready Boxes are retractable tunnels, designed to be easily re-closed with the minimum overall dimensions. Each tunnel consists of a system of valances and special pantographs to extend and retract the structure. This way, it is possible to cover a wide area, when needed, and in a short time have the area free. Giulio Barbieri retractable tunnels can be equipped with ground tracks and anti-lift nylon wheels.


The applications of these retractable tunnels range from storage facilities to garages for cars, from building connections to small warehouses to stock goods, from entrance passages for sport facilities to emergency shelters.

Available dimensions for the tunnels, once extended:

  • Width: from 2m up to 12 m.
  • Height: from 2 m up to 4 m.
  • Depth: from 3 m onward.

Once retracted, Giulio Barbieri tunnels collapse to small sizes, so that they can be moved or stored easily. As an example, a small retractable tunnel that is 2 m high, 3 m wide and 10 m deep, once retracted, will be only 70 cm deep. A bigger retractable tunnel that is 4 m high, 8 m wide and 10 m deep, will be only 1.51 m deep.
