Solara's smart patio cover system allows you to control the amount of sunlight or shade you want. The system can also be used for the garden, or as a gazebo for a hot tub or spa. This way you can enjoy the combination of the magnificent design, with the convenience of an adjustable cover.
Solara is a manufacturer of a unique patio cover. Patio covers are exposed to different weather conditions, such as direct sunlight, rain, and humidity.
Because Solara patio covers are made entirely out of aluminum, including the support systems, they are superior to wood, iron, steel, and metal covers. They will never rust, are not susceptible to termites, plus you will never have to paint them. Occasional cleaning with soapy water is all that is needed.
Another advantage that Solara offers on other products is the option to control the patio cover roof. When it's raining, you can close it, keeping your outdoor patio furniture, spa or hot tub covered. When a warm winter sun comes out, you can open the top louvers using a remote control and let in up to 98% direct sunlight, exactly where you want it to reach. And, of course, when the summer sun is too strong, you can choose to let in as little light as you would like through the louvers, up to 100% shade while maintaining maximal ventilation. You can order a 3D layout of your patio cover of choice and you can also order a custom made patio cover, meeting your specific requirements with no obligations
Variety of colors
Solara Adjustable Patio Covers has an extensive assortment of colors so that you can pick your favorite color. The wide variety of colors for the patio covers includes wood-like colors that can match the looks and color schemes of your house or garden.
For instance, colors can be combined as followed: the pillar and beams can be painted metallic and the roof in a desert crème.
Solara’s Standard Colors are as follows:
It is best to paint the roof louvers in neutral bright tones, like crème (bright colors inspire a sense of open space), and to have the patio cover poles match the exterior walls or the house's window frames. All colors are oven applied with an aluminum coating to meet the world's highest standard.
Eco Friendly Patio Covers, Awnings, Gazebos and Pergolas
Solara Smart Shading Systems are an Eco-Friendly addition to any property.
Made from premium aluminum that can be recycled, the Solara smart shading system is an environmentally friendly option when choosing a patio cover, pergola or awning for your home or commercial space. The aluminum metal roofs or green roofs also require the least possible maintenance and can be easily cleaned with just soap and water.
The ability of Solara's roof louvers to open and close allow the owner to preserve as much sunlight as the day has to offer. In turn, opening and closing the roof allows the owner to cut back on energy spending.
Watch electricity bills and energy dependency drop as you can add heat to your home or cool it with the addition of a Solara patio cover.
Patio covers and awnings for the summer
As summer approaches we seek shade and enjoy the pleasant breeze outdoors. Most shading solutions that are available offer partial enjoyment of both shade and breeze.
Open pergolas or lattice patio covers cannot provide 100% of the shade you want during the hot summer days, but they do allow for maximum airflow, as the warm air is released upwards on to the open cover.
Awnings provide 100% shade, or 100% light. Awnings can also block the amount of possible airflow you receive, and can result in a stuffy atmosphere creating a greenhouse effect in large areas.
An example of good airflow is if you open two windows in two different areas of your home. You immediately feel the difference in the amount of airflow that is created.
The Solara smart shading system provides you with the ultimate solution. At any given time according to the sunrays' direction, you can control and adjust the amount of shade you want from the smart shading system.
There is no need to relinquish a cool breeze and ventilation. By opening up Solara's patio louvers, you can enjoy both 100% shade and a free airflow.
Patio covers and awnings for the winter
In winter, we want to be shielded from rain, yet we do not want to give up on the pleasant warm winter sun.
The Solara smart shading system allows you to enjoy both worlds. Within seconds, by a push of a button, you can adjust the patio louvers angle. This means that on rainy days, you can convert the pergola into a steady roof, and on nice winter days you can open the louvers and let the natural sunlight pour in.
Other solutions resolve this dilemma by various means: open pergola, lattice patio cover, roof, or a canvas awning. A roof or awning can partially protect from the rain and moisture. A canvas awning cannot withstand high winds, meaning on stormy rainy days it would be left tucked away, and in effect, would not solve the problem.
A built fixed roof can withstand the wind and rain; however, on the nice sunny days when you want to enjoy natural sunlight, the roof will not let sunlight into the house. (Usually, the porch/deck stands next to a big window or sliding doors, through which the house is naturally lit.)
An open pergola or lattice patio cover lets the sunshine in on bright winter days, but leaves the deck, the outdoor furniture, and the front pathways (can get muddy and puddle) completely exposed to rain.
Smart patio wall
The Solara shading system can also be installed vertically, forming a dynamic wall (a smart patio wall).
The remote controlled wall louvers can open up to a 130 º angle and close to 0º.
A smart patio wall - is the perfect solution for your porch.
Solara's smart patio cover system can also be used as an outdoor gazebo for the garden, or as a gazebo for a hot tub or spa. This way you can enjoy the combination of the magnificent design, with the convenience of an adjustable cover.
Solara's patio covers can also be used as a gazebo, garden spa, hot tub cover, etc.
Another advantage that Solara offers on other products is the option to control the gazebo top. When it's raining, you can close it, keeping your outdoor furniture, spa or hot tub covered. When a warm winter sun comes out, you can open the top louvers using a remote control and let in up to 98% direct sunlight, exactly where you want it to reach.
And, of course, when the summer sun is too strong, you can choose to let in as little light as you would like through the louvers, up to 100% shade while maintaining maximal ventilation.
Gazebo covers are exposed to different weather conditions, such as direct sunlight, rain, and humidity. Because Solara patio covers are made entirely out of aluminum, including the support systems, they are superior to wood, iron, steel, and metal covers. They will never rust, are not susceptible to termites, plus you will never have to paint them. Occasional cleaning with soapy water is all that is needed.
You can order a 3D layout of your gazebo of choice and you can also order a custom made gazebo, meeting your specific requirements with no obligations.

Smart roofs for the deck and patio have the ability to open and close, thus allowing full protection from the rain and sunlight.
The patio cover louvers can be opened and closed as needed, so you can choose between an open or closed roof.
The louvers can tilt open to an angle of 130 º and can tilt shut to 0 º. This is just like having a built in roof. Naturally, any intermediate position can be maintained, allowing you to tune the shade light ratio to your liking at any time of day. This feature allows you to maximize the time sitting outdoors, under the patio cover, throughout the year.
The patio cover roof can be divided into two separate controlled sections. This way when you are having a barbecue, the roof louvers over the grill can remain open, letting the smoke out, while your guests can sit under the closed section enjoying both air and shade. The angle of the roof louvers can be adjusted manually or by using a remote control. Also the roof louvers are made from the highest quality recycled aluminum making them a green roof or Eco-friendly roof. The aluminum metal roofs also require the least possible maintenance and can be easily cleaned with just soap and water.
In the Winter and Fall there will be many days when you will want to adjust the amount of sunlight and heat that you are going to receive. Unlike the hot summer days, when you will want 100% shade and ventilation or in a warm winter day that you will like as much sun as you can get.
On a warm day in the Fall, or a nice day in the Spring, you will want anywhere from 60% - 80% shade. With the Solara louvered roof system you will not have to compromise any weather because you want shade in the summer, sun in the winter and a solid roof on a rainy day. Now you can control your louver system year round.
