Retractable Drop Shades



Retractable Drop Shades are the perfect way to maximize the enjoyment of your existing wood, vinyl, or aluma-wood patio cover and increase your outdoor living space or shade a west facing window or patio door that gets blasted by the afternoon sun without losing your view.

The Retractable Drop Shades are primarily for use on patio covers, but is also well suited for applications that require protection from low afternoon sun, such as windows and doors.







The Retractable Drop Shades travel up and down stainless steel cables to provide protection against heat, harmful UV rays, inclement weather. Running up and down on the stainless steel cables, the weight bar is inserted in to a pocket at the bottom of the fabric and thus is prevented from blowing around on a windy day. The Retractable Drop Shades can be mounted onto uneven surfaces such as decorative stone, brick, fascia boards and under eave mounts. Our Retractable Drop Shades are used to significantly reduce the heat, light and harsh UV rays by up to 95% and come in custom widths from 2’ to 26’ wide and custom heights from 2’ to 16’ high.

GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread

Unaffected by Sunlight

Your Awning Fabrics are only as good as the thread we use to sew them. All our Sunbrella Awning Fabrics are sewn with GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread that’s three times more durable than the industry standard, bonded polyester. Bonded Polyester loses 60% of its original breaking strength within the first three years yet, our thread still has 100% of it’s original breaking strength after 10 years. Now you can be rest assured that your awning seams will last as long as your fabric. GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread maintains its strength even after regular exposure to UV sunlight. UV resistance is built into the thread, and is not a coating or additive that can wear off.


GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread remains flexible and strong in extremes of hot and cold. It won’t absorb water and it resists acid rain, salt water, pollution, snow and freezing.

Using GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread tells our customers that they are buying a premium product built to last with durable seams and a brand that’s backed by more than 25 years of experience from the company that invented it.
