Retractable Roofs

Retractable Roofs

Why are Aalta retractable roofs so special?


With a focus on design and quality our retractable roofs 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,  Aalta’s Retractable Roofs is a key component in creating your ideal outdoor living 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!

With a variety of options available, including custom-made timber support structures, curved or tilted roofs, a fixed or retractable gutter, a wide range of powder coated aluminium frames and even free standing systems, Aalta will design and supply a retractable roof that will integrate with your home or commercial property so that you can enjoy the outdoors all year around.

How to really bring an outdoor living space to life


At Aalta we have a vision. Our vision stretches further than simply providing our customers with quality shade and weather protection solutions. Our vision is to


” create outdoor spaces that bring enjoyment, relaxation and an enriched sense of life. “


We believe that our quality products provide a foundation to create a space that people can embrace and continually enjoy. Our vision is not necessarily completely achieved straight after the installation of a job is complete. We believe that the vision is achieved when the outdoor space has certain elements that provide comfort, relaxation, functionality and sometimes even tranquillity.

To achieve this, Aalta urges our customers to consider integrating outdoor furniture, heating, lighting, landscaping, pots, plants and textures. In this way our customers can learn to love their outdoor area and utilise these spaces as outdoor living spaces instead of dead space. Our general rule is the greener the space is the happier you are going to be with your outdoor area! Try using an array of potted succulents to add life to your area, or breaking up blocked in white spaces with rustic outdoor furniture or earthy textures!

Aalta has numerous highly regarded contacts that can help our customers achieve the vision of creating an ideal outdoor living environment. To inspire you we have attached some links of our favourite outdoor design companies, landscape architects, furniture supplies and plant houses that operate in the Sydney area.
