During the summer months, rooftop patios and decks are the place to be. And while they offer expansive, beautiful views as far as the eye can see, they can quickly lead to discomfort without the proper shade protection. Avoid that from happening by installing one of the amazing shade options listed below.
A louvered roof is a convenient, safe and highly stable shade option that uses integrated technology to enjoy the outdoors. From spring to fall, louvered roofs provide reliable and safe weather protection while incorporating natural light.
Known for their stability in wind and low maintenance requirements, louvered roofs are fully customizable. The hardtop option uses variably inclining aluminum lamellas to provide natural air circulation whereas the soft-top roof system features integrated folding awnings. Various colours, mounting variants and additional options including LED lighting, sliding glazing system and aluminum floor system are available.
Acrylic Patio Roofs
Acrylic patio roofs are a great shade solution that allows natural light in while stopping harmful UV rays and harsh weather. Constructed of durable acrylic sheets strong enough to support fans, lights and plants, quality acrylic patio roofs have warranties to protect against yellowing.
Compared to other shade options, acrylic patio roofs allow the highest light transmission, while being strong enough to support heavy snow loads. Energy savings, heat control and an even light distribution can also be experienced.
Retractable and Specialized Awnings
Awnings have been used for years to easily add shade to rooftop decks and patios.
Retractable awnings are available with manual or automated operation systems and lack poles that hinder your view. Available in numerous opening styles including semi-cassette, full cassette and narrow, retractable awnings are a dependable shade source that also offers style, function and durability.
Due to their large space capacity, terrace awnings are a great solution for providing both shade and rain protection to rooftop patios and decks. Terrace awnings offer excellent UV protection and are available in a range of top-quality, long-lasting textiles. Additional fabric options are available that feature water and dirt-resistant coatings.
Mobile awnings provide a freestanding shading source that can be used in countless domestic and commercial settings. Using jointed arm technology and either a crank or motor, mobile awnings cover large areas of up to 40 metres squared with complete UV protection. Lacking middle posts, your view is not hindered in any way. Many different support options, fixing systems, fabric options and colour combinations are available to create a secure, fashionable shading solution that fits your space.
