Retractables are becoming very popular around the world. Retractable patio cover systems are the latest addition to the market. Majority of these systems are 100% water-proof and therefore allow no water penetration through the fabric roof section. These systems can be resistant to strong winds but that depends on the model and size. Another advantage of retractables is that they can be enclosed on the front and sides using solar shade screens. They are the new version of the old-fashioned storefront protection. Torsion bar supports tension arms and a roller bar and it fits into the wall or soffit brackets that will spread the load to the wall. Hand-cranked coverings are still available, but today the most common models are motorised protection. The motor is placed inside the roller tube.
Shade screens utilize acrylic canvas or a mesh fabric. This allows some view-through but at the same time blocks the sun's rays. The roller, which is placed at the top, can be hand-cranked or motorised. Exterior blinds are much more effective at blocking heat than interior blinds. The reason for that is because exterior blinds block the heat before it enters the glass.
