Protecting your home while saving on energy costs is easy with a retractable awning or folding arm awning. They can give you maximum sun protection in your outdoor space, and can be moved out of the way when not needed. They are available in various styles and colours, so you can pick the one that suits your home best.

Retractable Awnings come in two basic types: manual and motorised. Whichever you prefer, retractable awnings protect your home by preventing sun damage, fading and mould.

They can help keep the home cooler in the summer months, and warmer in the wintertime.

Manual Retractable Awnings: With a manual retractable awning, you will need to manually use the crank handle to move the unit up and down as required.

Motorised Retractable Awnings: With these units, all you have to do is push a button and the unit smoothly and silently opens or closes itself.

Retractable awnings

We have a number of retractable roof systems available, and only install quality retractable awnings from a curated number of manufacturers (see our brochures page for a full list). A retractable awning or retractable pergola can come in various shapes and sizes. The retractable awning fabric also comes in a variety of colours and styles, so you can pick the one that suits your home best. Retractable awnings are great. They can protect your home while saving on energy costs at the same time.

Folding arm awnings

This is a retractable awning with a difference. The shade is extended via a mechanical arm which moves out from a compact folded position. Folding arm awnings are sometimes also known as overhead awnings or cantilever awnings.

Folding arm awning systems offer excellent shade coverage because they can stretch out over wide areas. They are generally made of aluminium, but marine grade stainless steel is also often available, for greater rust-resistance. They are easy to fold up and down and can fold into a wall recess to virtually disappear completely.

Retractable roof awnings

Retractable roof awnings (or retractable pergolas) are a great way for you to add some extra space to your home. They attach to the roof of your house and roll back when not needed or retract inside when in use. With a retractable roof awning, you get an extra area for dining, entertaining and relaxing.

Pergola Systems

We can supply and install a variety of pergola systems, including retractable pergolas (also called retractable roof awnings). Pergolas provide shade in the summer months but can also act as an outdoor living area when retracted. This makes them perfect for entertaining all year round.

Straight drop awnings

These are the simplest type of awning. They are mounted to your house using brackets, and drop straight down. They can provide more shade than a roller awning, but don’t let as much light through so they may not be suitable if you want to maintain some view or light into your house.

Canopy awning

One of our most popular types is the canopy awning. These are available in various materials, styles and colours, so you will have no trouble finding one that goes well with your house. A canopy awning simply attaches to your house exterior, and typically hangs out over windows and doors.

Sun shade canopies

A canopy awning offers protection and style at the same time. They attach to your house and overhang down, creating an attractive space for you to sit or stand in without fear of getting wet or sunburned. These kinds of canopies often resemble sails and are not retractable.
