Have you always dreamt of a custom outdoor living space which is completely unique to you and your home? Well Aalta can help you stop dreaming and turn your ideas into a real design.

While you might have an idea about what you want and the look you want to go for, you might not know how to actually create a space which not only looks amazing but works with your life.

One of these design decisions includes picking which type of shade structure will best suit your outdoor space, whether it is a retractable roof, shade sail or awning, Aalta can help choose the best shade cover for you.

Aalta can come to your home or business and go through their consultation and design process with you. If you want to learn more about this step, then read more about it here.

For custom outdoor living - there is really no better choice than Aalta!

Retractable Roofs are Aalta's speciality - providing full weather protection without the need for heavy over-head structures.


Here are just a few benefits to choosing a retractable roof:

  1. Can have the roof out when it is rainy, windy or too sunny and retract it on beautiful summer mornings or clear nights
  2. A variety of options on the design of your roof including curved or tilted roofs, timber or aluminium pergola frames, and a fixed or retractable gutter
  3. Full weather protection
  4. Extends the living area of your property
  5. All roofs are motorised for ease of operation and can be fitted with a rain sensor



Retractable Roof Options:

This is the roof component only and can be fitted to existing frames or custom frames supplied by Aalta or your builder.

The Papilio's pergola frame has posts and a front beam, with integrated guttering and downpipe. Aalta can provide the pergola frame in either powder coated aluminium or timber to suit your outdoor area.

The Duet is Aalta's signature roof. With dual posts, the pergola structure is strong enough to avoid the need for a heavy front beam. Aalta has custom designed a retractable guttering system so when the roof is retracted there is nothing to obscure your outlook. The Duet pergola can be either powder coated aluminium or timber.

The Canopy retractable roof is a free standing pergola structure, giving you flexibility as to where it is erected. The frame can be either powder coated aluminium or timber.

The Vista is a cantilevered roof system that utilises strong struts tied back to the building, removing the need for front posts and beams. Ideal for those who have a fabulous view that simply cannot be obstructed.

If a Retractable Roof is not for you, why not consider other shading options with our retractable awnings and shade systems.

Here are just a few benefits to choosing a retractable awning or shade systems:

  1. Be protected from the harsh summer sun
  2. Retract your awning or shade sail to enjoy an open sky
  3. Make the most of the winter sun to warm your outdoor area by retracting your awning or shade sail
  4. Extends the use of your outdoor area 
  5. All awnings come with motorised options for ease of operation and can be fitted with a wind and/or rain sensor
