More about this product

ShadeFX custom retractable roofs provide complete coverage on virtually any structure. Mounting above the rafters, the retractable roof clears lights, fans, heaters, misters and other accessories required to complete any outdoor space.

Diverse shapes, orientation, settings and locations. ShadeFX's patented single track solution removes traditional alignment issues that multiple track systems have to consider and manage. This allows ShadeFX to mount to frames of all types including wood, without concern for jamming or binding. Further, the single track down the center of the roof provides the pitch required to effectively manage rain runoff. Paired with rain gutters, accumulating rainfall sheds to the sides of the system and into the troughs of the gutters, removing concern for pooled or standing water.

ShadeFX | Retractable Roofs

Most retractable roofs available on the market are comprised of plastic and metal materials and therefore come with a limited number of color options. ShadeFX's retractable roof has a fabric top, with hundreds of colors and patterns to choose from, this allows the system to complement the space it covers. Fabric paired with polycarbonate panels is partially reflective and partly absorptive allowing the rain to softly hit the roof and gently run off the sides. Partially extend, or fully retract the system to find the perfect amount of sunlight or coverage for the space below.
