At Designer Shade Solutions Ireland, we pride ourselves on creating modern and innovative shading structures like our retractable roof pergolas. Unlike traditional pergolas, these structures can adapt to any weather condition, protecting those sitting under it. Not only this, but with our versatile and customisable designs, you can take your retractable roof a step further. Let’s have a closer look at how you can transform your retractable roof with our bespoke features.  


Heating is an excellent add-on, particularly in the colder months of the year. You can integrate heating systems within your retractable roof pergola to create extra comfort when sitting outside in the winter. This is also an effective solution for hospitality outlets looking to create a more enjoyable alfresco dining experience, as customers can enjoy their meal without the fear of the cold. If you want to implement heating throughout other areas of your outdoor space, why not consider one of our free-standing heaters? We have platinum electric heaters, tungsten gas heaters and much more, allowing you to fully relax and unwind outdoors.   


Lighting is another great option to enhance your retractable roof. We offer LED lighting in a range of different colours, helping to transform the appearance of your outdoor shading structure. Looking to add ambience to your outdoor space? Want your shading structure to take you through to the evening? Then, lighting could be the perfect addition you need. What is even better is you can customise the lighting to the colour palette you desire, so perhaps use some bright yellows in the summertime and deeper reds in the winter to match the mood.  


Another excellent way to adapt your retractable roof is by customising the materials used. At Designer Shade Solutions, we are not limited on materials, like a traditional wooden pergola is. We have retractable fabric roofs, retractable glass roofs and retractable louvre roofs in aluminium alloy, allowing you to pick the material that best suits your design. You can also find waterproof and UV-protecting materials for added shelter and comfort.   

Other bespoke designs  

We have been installing retractable roofs and other external shading structures for over a decade, offering an entirely bespoke service to meet customers’ design specifications. So, if there is a specific vision you have in mind, speak to our team today and we can help to create it. You can install your retractable roof pergola as a stand-alone piece or attach it to part of your building.
