Are you searching for the right retractable roof? Are you looking to find out more about retractable glass roofs? Perhaps you simply want to know how much a retractable glass roof costs? Today, our shading experts will answer all of your questions.

What are retractable glass roofs?

Retractable glass roofs are glass roofs that feature a retractable system that easily retracts or extends the roof’s glass tiles (as required). Thanks to this innovative feature, retractable glass roofs allow people to experience their outdoor space, no matter the season.

At Designer Shade Solutions, two of our most popular retractable glass systems include the retractable glass ClearSky skylights and the retractable glass Solaglide skylights. These spectacular glass systems allow people to enjoy sunny weather with an open roof, and if the weather quickly changes and it starts to rain, the glass roof can be easily closed to provide a fully weatherproof shelter.

Glass systems offer unobstructed views of the outdoors and provide a great amount of flexibility by allowing people to experience outdoor living and indoor living in the same space.

Where to install retractable glass roofs?

Retractable glass roofs can easily be integrated into your building or outdoor space. You might want to add a retractable glass roof in your conservatory or want to be able to use your outdoor pool all year round by installing a self-supporting structure with a retractable glass roof sheltering this area. Guess what? You can. Our retractable glass roofs are suitable for a wide range of applications, from covering rooftop bars to providing shelter to a residential hot tub area.

So, whether you want a retractable glass roof for your home, a retractable glass roof for the patio or a retractable glass roof over the garden, Designer Shade Solutions will be able to create the perfect shading solution for you.
