Many customers love the look of their pergola or outdoor structure but they want better protection from the sun and the rain. Home owners and businesses enjoy the outdoor atmosphere created with a retractable shade awning. Whether it is to attract customers to your bar or restaurant or you just want to enjoy yourself at home we will have a retractable awning to fit your application.

Patios and decks commonly run the full length of the house with multiple levels. Many areas include built-in hot-tubs, outdoor fireplaces, exterior furniture and complete outdoor kitchens. The outdoor deck has become a key entertainment centre for many families, but consequently, so has the health threat of skin cancer from increased UV exposure. This has created a demand for shade products to go with the deck or pergola. The demand from businesses and home owners for canopies and retractable awnings grows each year.

We can supply the ShadeFX retractable awning which uses an aluminum track and aluminum canopy wings that hold the fabric. The awning can retract in your preferred direction. Roll up awnings that mount on the wall rely on fabric tension for support between their front and back. They are not supported in between and, for this reason, they are not recommended to be left extended in the wind or the rain. The maximum span distance for most roll up awnings is 13’. Many expensive awnings have been damaged due to high winds. ShadeFX retractable canopies are a fully framed canopy system when extended, with the strength to withstand most winds and even heavy rain. ShadeFX systems use Sunbrella Awning Fabric that comes in hundreds of colours and comes with a 10 year warranty against discolouration and fading.

All ShadeFX awnings are custom made for your application using high quality components and fabric so they can be expensive for some customers. Therefore, we have other retractable awning or canopy options using alternative materials and fabric.

Please give us a call and one of our sales people would be happy to review your options at your home or business.
