These high quality conservatory awnings will perfectly fit any standard type of conservatory, pergola or outdoor construction.
Varioscreen® – retractable sunroof from Helioscreen is a retractable sun protection system that allows sunlight through to your living and working environment while keeping out the blinding glare and heat.
Conservatory awnings, or retractable pergola roofs, were originally designed in Europe for glass conservatories. They’re also commonly used for shade over pergolas and can be fitted with posts.
Designed for commercial and residential projects, conservatory awnings can be used in various applications for protection from the sun.
How do retractable pergola roofs work?
The conservatory awning system runs on tracks, and the fabric retracts onto a roller tube into a cassette. The powder-coated aluminium cassette protects the material when it is retracted. The tracks and cassette can be powder coated in any Dulux powder coat colour.
These systems are motorised with remote control, with the drive mechanism attached to tapes that run inside the tracks. The tapes run out to the end of the track, around a pulley and back to the front bar attached to the fabric’s front edge. The fabric is kept under tension as the tapes pull out the front bar.
Discover Ozsun’s vast array of pergola roofing options
Ozsun offers a wide range of fabric types and colours for all our retractable pergola roofs. Solution-dyed acrylic is the most commonly used fabric for these awnings, but various mesh fabrics like Soltis are also available. All our conservatory awnings are engineered to withstand up to Beaufort Category 6 winds (49 km/hr).
Ozsun offers three conservatory awning models, with the Varioscreen from Helioscreen being our premium tier. The Vario Pergola, also from Helioscreen, is similar to the Varioscreen, except it has posts that make it a retractable pergola roof with the cassette mounted on the wall and the tracks supported at the far end on posts. The VZ is a budget-priced, European-designed and Australian-made retractable pergola roof offered in a standard white powder coat.

What is the purpose of a retractable pergola roof?
A retractable pergola roof is a type of roofing system where you can adjust to control the amount of sunlight entering an outdoor space. It provides shade and protection from the elements while allowing an open-air experience. This versatility makes retractable pergola roofs ideal for outdoor living spaces, such as patios and decks.
What is the best retractable roof for a pergola?
The best retractable roof for a pergola depends on several factors, including your specific needs, budget and aesthetic preferences. At Ozsun, we offer highly-regarded products to meet the unique requirements of our customers — the Ozsun VZ and the Varioscreen®.

The Varioscreen® from Helioscreen is our premium pergola roofing option. It’s a versatile sun protection system that allows light through while blocking glare and heat and is available in both translucent and mesh fabrics.
Does pergola roofing protect from rain?
Yes, pergola roofing can provide protection from rain, depending on the type of roofing material and design used. Some pergola roofing materials, such as polycarbonate sheets or aluminium louvres, are designed to provide a barrier against the rain, while others, such as fabric or canvas canopies, are less effective but can be treated with water-resistant coatings.
How does pergola roofing provide shade?
Pergola roofing provides shade by blocking direct sunlight and reducing the heat and light entering an outdoor space. This is achieved using roofing materials with a high level of translucency, such as polycarbonate sheets, canvas or fabric. The roofing material is installed over the pergola frame, creating a covered area that provides shade and protection from the sun’s rays.
How effective is pergola roofing?
The level of effectiveness of pergola roofing can vary depending on the type of roofing material and design used. At Ozsun, our pergola roofs in Sydney are made from high-quality materials that are built to last. With proper care and maintenance, these retractable pergola roofs will ensure your outdoor living space remains comfortable and protected for years to come.
