Retractable Roofs

Retractable Roofs

With a focus on design and quality products we aim to transform your area into an aesthetically pleasing and functional outdoor living space. Whether you need shade, protection from the wind and rain, privacy, or simply want to enjoy an alfresco area, an Aalta Retractable Roof is a key component in creating your “3rd space”.

A Retractable Roof is an openable roof system that concertinas back to open up the roof area. The membrane is made of PVC coated polyester fabric and travels along a light weight track system. When extended, the roof is held under tension making it extremely resilient to winds and rain. At the touch of a button, the motorised roof extends along a pergola type structure, either custom-made or existing.

The difference with a retractable roof to permanent roof structures is that you have full control over your outdoor environment – whether it’s to keep out the sun’s rays, protect you from the rain or enjoy the open skies.

Imagine a beautiful balmy summer evening and the stars are out – with the press of a button your roof can disappear. Unlike permanent roof structures you can enjoy the night sky whilst sipping champagne or relaxing with a cup of tea!

Consider a drizzly evening where you have planned a dinner party out on your deck. With a retractable roof, you’re not worried. Your outdoor living area has been designed with heating, lighting and privacy screens so that you and your friends can listen to the pitter patter of rain on the canvas roof whilst enjoying a meal in your alfresco dining room!

We are sure you can write your own stories as to how Aalta can transform your outdoor area with a retractable roof…so we will leave that with you!
