CableShades custom design is for long term durability and should not require annual service. The cables and most component parts are high grade stainless steel. The fabric is a highest of quality ‘marina fabrics’ --- the color and pattern is the same on both top and bottom side of the fabric.
Simply retract your shades when the sun is desired, or extend when full shade is wanted a (10 second ordeal per canopy). Each individual canopy can be retracted partial or total. One side of the deck/patio can be sunny (for plants or sunbathing) while the other side 98% shaded in seconds.
Standard sizes are 50" or 64" or 84" widths (eyelet to eyelet for each shade placemets). Custom-sizes are available. The length (projection) can be most any increment needed. With just adding more canopies the overall width can be as wide as needed. Projections are typical 12 to 15 ft., but can be extended up to much longer projections with simple mid-support J-hooks.
The CableShade system is far less priced than other ‘individual retractable canopy systems.’ Most orders will cost from $12 to $14 per square foot -- depending on if using 50" or 64" or 84" sizes.
A 10x10 (two canopies running out 10 ft.) would cost approx. $1300.
Before Spring/Summer rush, for instance a 21x14 size would cost $3500-ish.
Keep in mind—(4) of the 5 ft. sizes (making up 21 ft. width) will cost less than would (5) of the 4’ sizes to make up the same 21 ft. available space.
