The perfect sun shade for your home

Our textile roofs come in two beautiful styles, The Viola and The Protea. The Protea has been snow tested up to 550kg making it one of the strongest textile roofs available. The Viola can be installed with a shallow pitch whilst still being usable in rain due to its mechanical dropdown leg. Both roofs benefit from an array of design and colour possibilities – with many frame colours and fabric styles, you will find one ideally suited to your home.

Textile roofs are a great option to provide sheltered weather protection all year round and are fully retractable with an easy to use remote control putting you in charge of your environment. Our designs guarantee great results and no parts used in the installation of your textile roof will be ‘off the shelf’, meaning your design is truly bespoke. You can even create a room by adding frameless side glazing to The Protea to give your outdoor living space a real wow factor.

Textile Roofs FAQ's

Do Textile Roofs protect against the weather

In this case one of our retractable textile roof systems are exactly the right choice to make that will turn your garden into an all weather room. They provide shelter from the elements, while being fully retractable, enabling you to enjoy alfresco dining throughout the year. There are options to add integrated lighting and heating as well as side screens for added protection.

How do I operate a textile roof?

Both the Viola and the Protea are motorised as standard and controlled via a handheld remote or a wireless wall mounted switch.

Can I add Lighting and heaters to my retractable textile roof at a later date?

You can add heating products at any stage but as the lighting is integrated into the aluminium structure these have to be purchased with your initial purchase. However, we can retrofit a LED light bar to your retractable louvered roof at later date.

How does rain water run off a retractable textile roof?

The Protea has integrated guttering in the front structural beam that drains away though a hidden drainpipe within the post. The Viola textile roof does not have a drainage system. Rainwater simply runs off to the side that has been lowered via the adjustable post.

Can a textile roof be shaded or glazed on the sides?

The Proteas has the ability to be fully closed in using sliding glass doors or retractable shades on all sides making your textile roof into a enclosed space. The Viola can be supplied with a retractable screen on the front only.
