Retractable Sunroof Pergola System

Light & Shade retractable pergola systems provide a modern outdoor covering. Our many systems offer a wind rating up to Beaufort class 11 (up to 117km/h) and is designed to stand up to even the worst of conditions rain, hail or shine.

Roof systems are custom manufactured to size using high grade 6063 extruded aluminium profiles finished with thermosetting powder coating which provides superior overall performance for exterior product applications. All bolts, screws and pins are high grade stainless steel to ensure extended system life.

The rafter profiles (110mm x 160mm) have been designed with unique water guard side channels and cast aluminium end plates to allow for projections up to 10m per system. Widths are customised according to site requirements and available in any size up to 15m. Systems available offer up to 150sqm of protection at the touch of a button.

Linking multiple systems is possible and made easy by storm channel joining that ensures 100% waterproof join every time.

 

Remote Control Capabilities

Remote controlled motorisation is provided by utilising European technology through a custom built direct drive motor system to ensure smooth and quick operation at 34 RPM. The optional high powered LED-TEC lighting system provides a practical touch of class and when coupled with a remote dimming controller allows the user to change the mood to suit the surrounding environment.

 

Features of the Retractable Pergola

The heart of the system is driven by eight wheel slider carriages. Each slider carriage has a load limit of 600kgs that incorporates a triple layer barrier system. This works in conjunction with a timing belt that has been reinforced with multiple internal stainless steel cables to provide a pulling strength of over 966kg. It’s this tension that is applied to the fabric membrane to allow an angle of 6 degrees fall possible and ensure all water drains away in the internal gutter system.

The fire rated and 100% waterproof architectural membrane is available in a range of colours, both opaque and transparent, providing maximum stability and resistance to temperature, moisture and dirt. It does not shrink or stretch, and the acrylic top coating makes it very easy to clean for years to come. When not in use the fabric is neatly retracted under the systems hood to provide maximum protection.

To ensure the highest level of protection Light & Shade focus on all the details, this is why all systems come standard finished with Stormguard soft touch edge seal on all parameters.

Stormguard provides the ultimate protection against rain and draught intrusion around the outside of the system. Stormguards soft touch edge seal is produced from an extra soft & flexible natural rubber to ensure the best possible protection from the elements.

This extra attention to detail is what sets us apart from our competitors and is why we are at the forefront of the shade industry.
