Coopers Alehouse Gepps Cross

The Project

The New Coopers Alehouse at Gepps Cross has recently undergone a massive renovation, including a complete revamp of their outdoor Entertainment Area. In order to protect patrons all-year long, and allow business to operate 365 days of the year, a mazssive 100 square metre Retractable Roof was installed.

The Issey Star Retractable Roof has completely transformed the outside area, allowing flexible options for using the outside space. When retracted back, the alfresco area is cool and open, allowing natural light and a clear view of the sky. Then, when the weather takes a turn for the worse, the Roof is extended allowing 100% rain protection, and a nice and warm atmosphere.


The PVC Fabric forms the basis of the canopy, including Aluminium Runners drived by a mechanical belt system. The folding mechanism has been tried and tested, and including the steel frame, this allweather solution is build to last. Many colour options are avaialble and Shadeform can offer a complete keyturn solution from start to finish.

Thirty Years of Experience, All in One Project...

The finished product is the combined result of over thirty years of experience in sail-making and shade canopy design.
