Difference between Retractable Patio Awnings & Retractable Roofs
Retractable Patio awnings and retractable roofs are excellent shade systems. Both retract to allow you to open up your outdoor area during beautiful summer nights or to maximise the warm winter sun. If you are considering either option, here are a few key differences that may help you decide which retractable shade system is better for you.
A retractable roof is an openable roof system that concertinas back to open up the roof area. The membrane is made of a water-proof PVC coated polyester fabric and travels along a light weight track system. The roof is supported by a pergola type frame that is either made of timber or powder coated aluminium. It can also be fitted to existing frames. When extended, the roof is held under tension making it extremely resilient to high winds, heavy rain and of course sun. Because of this, it can be used to create an outdoor living area, enabling you to use your deck, balcony or courtyard in most weather conditions.
Retractable Patio awnings are ideal for protection from the sun and light winds. The fabric is either a pvc mesh or a solution dyed acrylic fabric. The awning can be mounted over glass roofs, pergolas or on patios and courtyards. The membrane extends and retracts along guide rails or cables and completely rolls up inside a head box, creating a neat, clean-lined structure over the area. Patio awnings do not come with posts, however, Aalta can design and construct the supporting structure if required. Whilst the Patio awning is not to be used in heavy rains, it is a more cost-effective solution to your outdoor needs.
