Solara - Accessories


Visors for patio covers

Solara’s smart patio covers can be fitted with a visor as well. The visors provide extra protection from the sun’s radiation, and provide a broader area of shade.


Electric Motor

Solara’s smart patio cover can be fitted with an electric motor, which can be operated with the use of a remote control.

Unlike canvas awnings where the motor only shifts between two stages: roof open – roof closed, the Solara shading system’s motor controls the patio cover louvers and accommodates any choice of angle from 0º to 130º.

The motor operates at a voltage of 12 volts, so there is no risk of electric shock. It is also really safe in the event of a malfunction or power loss.

Electric Motor for Patio Cover

Custom Design Patio Covers

Solara Adjustable Patio Covers not only manufactures and develops smart shading systems, but also

provides excellent service for its customers.

The company utilizes 3D cutting edge software, which allows you to not only plan and design your pergola, patio cover, or awning but also compute the percentage of shade you want at any given time of day and/or date.

For example: the sun’s angle varies by season. It is important to make certain that the patio cover is effective in every season. The simulation program allows you to see just that – the pergola’s effectiveness at any hour, day and month.

Using the pergola’s simulation program, you can virtually modify the height of construction, size of the pergola, etc. to see their effect on the amount of light and shade you receive.

Design Tip 1:
A pergola facing eastward will always receive sunshine in the morning. The same goes for a westward pergola in late afternoon. To enhance shading, you can add visors to the sides of the pergola in the simulation, and see their effect on morning and afternoon shading.

Design Tip 2:
The higher the patio cover, the less shade it provides.

Design Tip 3:
You can design your cover to fit on any existing structure.

Design Tip 4:
Design any shape, any curve, any size.

Using this smart service, you not only get a perfectly matched pergola designed according to your personal taste, but you can avoid unnecessary surprises.
