InstantEye Retractable Batter’s Eye

30'H x 56'W 5-unit installation shown with Instant Eye up

The patented Instant Eye™ let’s you declutter in an instant. This Beacon-exclusive was inspired by nature. A typical batter’s eye is a big, expensive, permanent structure that comes with constant worries about damaging wind gusts. The Instant Eye changes all that. It’s engineered to mimic trees. A sturdy central support has fully-retractable wings supported by flexible battens to allow subtle, stable movement to reduce wind load. Just like trees.

InstantEye Retractable Batter’s Eye

Again, like trees, we also stagger the placement of each unit to allow wind gusts to freely pass through. To protect Instant Eye from approaching storms just lower the wings from the ground — no ladders. It’s all in stark contrast to traditional batter’s eye structures.
