Is the Installation of Retractable Canopies Difficult?
Installation requires about 30 minutes per canopy on an existing pergola or trellis. Simply install the eyelets at desired 4 points (4 corners) per canopy; thread the cable through eyelets and the canopy; connect turnbuckle and tighten to desired tension. If projection is over 15 ft. J-hooks can be simply added in the middle to prop up a long projection. Personal assistance is available for the do-it-yourself customer.
Don’t have an existing Pergola/Trellis? Call for assistance. In most areas there are pergola builders standing by. We can provide assistance if you are a do-it-yourself builder.
CableShade canopies can remain in extended position from spring through fall seasons -- even through most high winds. They must be retracted in threats of snowy weather.
Note: CableShade Retractable Canopies are individualized sections that retract individually ( 84" or 64" or 50" 'widths' standard sizes). No CableShade can be wider than the 84" width. They can extend at any increment up to approx. 30 ft.
Note: A Retractable Awning is often a term one uses to describe the same thing as 'retractable canopies.' Generally speaking, however, an awning is one large size sewn-together fabric like you see on some of the "crank out" awning TV adds. Those crank out awnings are a whole different ball game when it comes to wind pressure release and the rain/snow issues.
