Shading Structures


The outdoor spaces surrounding your home and business are just as important as the interior spaces. However, exposure to the elements – such as sunlight, rain, wind, and snow – can reduce their comfort and usefulness. If you are looking for a way to expand your space to the outdoors for business or pleasure, the Gennius may be the perfect solution!

The Gennius is a rainproof retractable roof system that was developed to meet the needs of outdoor spaces not fully met by fabric awnings. It provides shelter from the elements while optimizing outdoor spaces for uses typically reserved for the indoors. At home, the Gennius offers attractive living room or patio space, in addition to privacy and a more intimate setting. For restaurants and other businesses, it extends dining and merchandise areas, attracting more customers, and maximizing profits.

One of the most impressive features of the Gennius is its versatility. Whether you want to cover a small deck or a large exhibit area, this structure can be customized to meet the needs of your specific space. It can also be used as a full enclosure for additional privacy and protection. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination.

What are the Benefits of Gennius?

When considering the number of features it offers, the Gennius certainly lives up to its name. Some benefits that come with a Gennius structure include:

  • Durability. The Gennius offers resistance to wind and water for a long-lasting and dependable structure.
  • Ambiance. It provides the beauty of a pergola, but with the flexibility of a retractable awning.
  • Comfort. Because furniture and other items are safe, you can enjoy the comfort of an indoor living space – outdoors.
  • Sun protection. Constructed of 3-ply PVC, the Gennius blocks 100% of UV rays and eliminates shadows.
  • Privacy. Optional zip screens or curtains with clear vinyl windows offer full enclosure.
  • Convenience. The roof is retractable via remote control, offering protection from the elements only when wanted or needed.

Additional Features

In addition to the options listed above, the Gennius can be customized further to enhance the enjoyment of your outdoor space. Two optional features include:

  • Lighting and audio systems can be incorporated into the structure.
  • Rainwater management systems are also available.
