Soltis 88 on a pergola with retractable awnings

Roman and retractable pergola canopies

Retractable pergola canopies are not only aesthetically pleasing but also highly practical, allowing you to enjoy quality time outdoors in every season and in every weather. If you are looking for a pergola canopy, treat yourself to our Soltis range of high-performance and high-resistance fabrics!

What are retractable pergola canopies?

Retractable pergola canopies allow you to enjoy your time outside on sunny days, while also sheltering you from extreme heat and rain. This fully adjustable system provides a comfortable exterior setting, so you can enjoy the outdoors all year round, whatever the season.

Retractable canopies are very easy to use. In just a few minutes, you can extend or retract your canopy, either manually or automatically with a switch or remote control. The addition of a canopy lets you manage and regulate the climate under your pergola to your liking.

How do I pick my retractable pergola canopy?

The choice of fabric is the one essential factor to consider when buying a retractable pergola canopy. For a canopy that will last over time, choose a quality fabric that combines elegant design with comfort.

Make sure the fabric you pick delivers high protection against UV rays, glare, heat, as well as rain and wind. Another important element to take into account is durability, for a fabric that will be resistant to both tearing and warping.
