Permanent Shading Solutions for the Luxury Home


In the typical Australian residence, the outdoor living space is an integral part of the home and therefore would be in keeping with the décor. If your home is a little on the luxurious side, then exterior shading needs to be in line with the overall look of the property, and fortunately, the latest generation of retractable roof systems offer the ideal shading solution.

Bespoke Creations

Rather than looking through a catalog of prefabricated units, the supplier of high-end retractable roofing systems would design and build the unit around the area to be shaded. Powder coated aluminum makes up the frame and with a choice of mesh, acrylic canvas or PVC, there is something to suit every taste. With customized retractable roof systems in Melbourne, or any other Australian city, your stylish and elegant shading is a fit and forget solution that will provide you and your family with many years of trouble-free use.

Pleated Retractable Sections

The most effective way to provide adjustable shading from harmful UV rays is with pleated sections that fold over each other as the roof is retracted, allowing for a smooth operation, and with a covered mechanism, the tracking is protected from the elements. The pleats come in various sizes and as each pleat has a separate piece of fabric, any storm damage can easily be repaired by only replacing the units that are damaged, rather than the entire covering.

Wide Cover Span

The state of the art retractable roofing system can span up to 18 meters in width and have a projection of up to 6 meters – more than enough to cover most terraces and should your outdoor area exceed this, bespoke creations will ensure complete shading.

Motorized Solutions

A permanent retractable roofing system would usually be motorized, allowing effortless adjustment by remote control and with built-in wind and sun sensors, the unit can automatically adjust itself as the day passes, and if you would like the sun at any time, you simply retract the roof until the right combination of sun and shade is reached.

Site Consultation

If you would like to explore the potential of a customized retractable roof in your home, the supplier would likely send a representative to your home where you can take a look at some designs and discuss your options. Installing a state of the art retractable roofing system will not be cheap and therefore you should spend some time at the design stage and with the help of the supplier, you can select a combination that is perfectly suited to the surroundings.

Color Choices

Whether you prefer a solid color or a patterned design, there is something to suit every taste, and with a choice of coverings that include mesh, acrylic, and PVC, there's no limit to what can be achieved design wise. The company rep would have fabric samples for you to browse and they would always be happy to give you a few local addresses of previous projects – which allows you to see how the system looks when in place.

Whatever the style of your home, there are luxurious, motorized retractable roofing systems that are designed with style and functionality in mind and once everything is agreed, you can look forward to a new dimension of exterior shading that will last for many years.
