What are roll-away pergola canopies?
Roll-away pergola canopies allow you to make the most of your garden or patio, whatever the season or weather.
Whether in the height of summer or the middle of winter, they provide a comfortable extension to your living space to host friends or set up a table for a family dinner. In the summer, you can keep your canopy rolled away to enjoy the sun, or choose to extend it to provide shade and stay safely out of reach from harmful UV rays. And when paired with pergola side blinds, it will create a warm space so you can take advantage of your pergola all year round!
Additionally, the winding mechanism can be motorised for easier use and storage in case of sudden rain. Once rolled away, the fabric is enclosed within a cassette casing and disappears completely.
What should I look for when shopping for a roll-away pergola canopy?
When buying a roll-away pergola canopy, the quality of the fabric is a crucial element to take into consideration. The fabric should meet several criteria:
it should protect you from UV rays, heat and glare, be weatherproof and resistant to tearing and bugs;
it should be easy to remove, for effortless storage during the cold season;
the material should be able to withstand the weight of dead leaves.
