Fixed Shade Canopy for existing Pergola

Terrace-Top Pergola

Another option to increase the amount of shade under an existing pergola is to add a fixed mesh fabric canopy.

Shade canopy covers are custom fabricated and can be installed either with a bellowed look with support rods or flat installation and are available in a variety of mesh fabrics in a range of colours.


Please note that due to the lack of a significant pitch for most existing pergolas, a fixed mesh canopy is not designed to protect against rain or take any snow load, and therefore would need to be removed at the end of each summer season.
