The actuator (18) in the deployed position have abutting top and bottom edges (30, 32) and parallel side surface (34) that span across the building opening. The actuators (18) in the stowed position have abutting in inner and outer side surfaces (30, 32) in parallel top edges (30) and parallel bottom edges (32).
