Retractable roof systems have become increasingly popular in South Africa, offering a versatile and custom-designed solution for property owners. Awning Warehouse, a Randburg-based family business with over 20 years of experience, provides tailored retractable roof solutions that maximise the benefits of South Africa’s sunny climate.

These roofing systems can protect outdoor furniture and entertainment areas from all elements. From harsh sun protection to cold winter winds and driving rain, while also increasing the usability of an outdoor living space. Let’s look at our available options:

Adjustable Aluminium Louvre Awnings

Adjustable louvre awnings are the perfect solution for controlling light and airflow. Enjoy the sunshine or find shade as you please, while also benefiting from complete waterproofing when closed. Our enamel-baked aluminium panels are adjustable and durable, providing years of rust and maintenance-free service. Choose between manual or automatic operation to suit your needs.


Pergolas fitted with a retractable roof system are another way to create an entertainment area that maximises the use of an outdoor area. Stylish and functional, their simple design is combined with top-class quality materials. Retractable pergola roofs are perfect when installed to protect deck areas, patios and porches from any weather condition. The addition of this roofing solution for morning, noon and night entertaining, will add substantially to the value of any property.

Retractable Awnings

Retractable awnings for decks and pool areas

These help to extend outdoor living space and are usually installed on balconies, decks, patios and pool areas. They are also ideal for cafes and restaurants. These retractable awnings extend available seating areas and offer customers the advantage of eating outdoors. This roof system avoids the need for costly construction while remaining unobtrusive. They can be operated manually or automatically. Our retractable awnings are hard-wearing and long-lasting.

Fold-arm Awnings

This is another beautiful yet affordable option to enhance your living space and protect your outdoor structures. Not only do folding arm awnings add a stylish touch to your home, but they also provide shelter. Whether you desire an extra bit of shade or a cosy spot for your guests during chilly afternoons, our fold-arm extensions are the ultimate solution for your outdoor needs.

8 Good Reasons to Install Retractable Roof Systems

  1. Versatility – Retractable roofing can be shut to provide sun protection or be fully drawn back to enjoy starry nights. They can also be partially opened to allow just the right amount of sun to filter through.
  2. Waterproof – A retractable roof is 100% watertight. This ensures uninterrupted entertainment even in the wildest rain storms.
  3. Insulation – Insulated against all types of weather conditions, retractable roofing offers the ideal solution for protecting properties from extreme changes in temperature.
  4. Durability – All Awning Warehouse roof systems are manufactured from top-quality materials such as aluminium and tough weather-resistant fabrics. That is why the company guarantees both its product and workmanship.
  5. Protection – Outdoor roofing systems protect your furniture and fabrics from fading or from other weather-related damage. This advantage can even extend into your indoor living area if selecting a retractable roof system to prevent harsh sunlight from beating down on windows.
  6. Expansive – Expand your living space by creating a comfortable outdoor entertainment area protected by an overhead retractable roof system.
  7. Touch-Button – Opt for an automated retractable awning or pergola that opens and shuts at the touch of a button.
  8. Add Value – Last but not least, a retractable roof is a perfect solution to add additional entertainment space to your property at a fraction of the price of construction. It allows the outdoors inside your home and there are endless aesthetically pleasing designs.
