CableShades 'between' rafters (as above)...                            

                   ...Or 'below' the rafters (as the below)

CableShades are now in Canada, Australia, Mexico -- and in 46 US States (and counting).

Installation is Simple..

The CableShades come pre-assembled with all components. Just set the Stainless Steel (SS) eyelets where diagramed; thread the SS cable and tighten the SS turnbuckle. Takes about 30 minutes per shade. Simple tools.

See 'How to Install' Videos Under Product Info Tab above.

When considering retractable shades on cables or slide-wires, it is advised to NOT order any system where the cables/wires are threaded 'over' the fabric. Even though the cable is strung a few inches higher than the top of the fabric, still, the wind whips the fabric up and down hitting the cables/wires -- hence wearing out the fabric in a relatively short period of time. For this reason, the CableShades design has the cable/wires running 'beside' the fabric (not over) ...
... as in the below picture.
  • CableShade's uniquely designed retractable awnings offer vastly superior construction over the competition. Sunbrella marina fabrics, and stainless steel cable/components.
  • CableShades come fully assembled, including all stainless components, and ready for installation -- which is very simple: just set the mounting eyelets where diagramed, thread the cable, connect and tighten the stainless steel turnbuckle.
  • Each Shade has it's own 360 degree cable run and turnbuckle. Takes 20 to 30 minutes per shade to install.

"Hello Len -

Hope business is going well - just wanted to finally get some photos to you of the final installation of your product on my pergola here in the eastern Finger Lakes.

We started this effort with lots of research about a year ago...and are finally enjoying the fruits of that!   The last snow melted away off the patio around April 20th, after which I enlisted my son to come up from NYC to help install the shades over an extended weekend.  While there was a little bit of learn as you go, by the time we finished the last panel, we were experts..."

"...Now, with the sun fully hitting the patio area from 9am until 8pm at this time of the year, we have essentially added another complete seasonal room to the house.  Instead of retreating away from the overhead sun and the resulting heat trapped in the patio area during the day, we have a very comfortable area for outdoor lunch, entertaining guests, enjoying the backyard birds and that all important evening cocktail before grilling dinner. From inside, we also now enjoy the view out towards the back yard all day long, instead of closing off the dining room sliding doors and shutting the indoor blinds when that sun hits..."

"...Bottom line, CableShade delivered a quality product that installs well and provides the shade that I wanted. It turns a barely used summer patio into a very nice additional living space for my wife and me..."


"...We already have shown it off to a number of friends who admire the results and will themselves be thinking of CableShade when they decide on similar projects in the future. We appreciate your support to help ensure we bought the right size, right length, and right color for our needs.  Additionally, your written installation instructions specifically for this job enabled the contractor to set up the pergola correctly, and easily guided me with the installation of the shades."
