If you’re short on space, sick of adjusting to the fickle sun or know that variety is the spice of life, a retractable awning could very well be your new best friend! Awnings let you create a shaded space when you need it, and let the sun shine in when you don’t. You don’t have to choose between a shaded patio and a sunny one – Undercover Industries’ new retractable awnings offer the best of both worlds.

Adapt to the seasons

If you’re something of a chameleon, a retractable awning is the perfect way to adapt to each season’s changing climate. It gives you shelter from the extremes so you can stay safely out of the hottest sun and stay dry during a heavy shower. But when the weather is comfortable, you can retract the awning back and enjoy being uncovered.

Part-time protection

Retractable awnings let you take advantage of the sun when you want to, and hide away from it when you don’t. This means you can install one to shade your swimming pool for those midday swims, yet still enjoy a dip under the setting sun. It lets you enjoy a family meal under shade, before retracting the awning for a sunny game of backyard cricket. Or you could create a cosy reading corner, deciding each day whether you prefer sun or shade.

High quality and stylish awnings

Made from superior aluminium and stainless steel combined with premium Docril acrylic canvas fabric, our awnings are high quality and attractive, UV resistant and waterproof. Coming in 132 different colours, you can customise the fabric to suit your style and bring some pizazz to your outdoor space. Whether it’s in your backyard or covering your café’s patio, they look professional and sophisticated and, with a five-year guarantee, they stand the test of time.

Let the sunshine in

Depending on the layout of your house and size of your windows, you may be concerned that a permanent structure will stop sunlight from fully entering, warming and brightening your room. While we expertly install our pergolas to avoid this problem, we understand the worry – and retractable awnings are a perfect solution.

Commercial use

Do you have a restaurant or bar patio that is usually comfortable, but finds itself empty when the sun is highest in the sky? A retractable awning gives your customers the best of both worlds, letting them enjoy a meal outside on a sunny winter’s day, while keeping them safe and sheltered in the middle of summer. Temporary shade is coveted by a whole host of other businesses too, from office patios to daycare centres, ice cream parlors to public pools.
