Solara has been in the patio cover industry for over 25 years. We take pride in being able to offer our fantastic product across the world. Solara invented the roll formed louvered roof system more than 25 years ago. Now, thousands of happy customers around the world are using the Solara roll formed louvered roof system.
One of the main benefits of using the roll formed louver versus the extruded louver is the fact that the roll formed louver system is very light weight (about 70% lighter) this smart engineering gives you almost the same benefit of the extruded louver but it allows you to use a light weight structure. Engineering is simpler; the span can be larger because of the lighter live load.
If you do not have a commercial application like a restaurant, school, etc., the light live load of the roll forming louver will be an advantage for you.
