The Solara smart louvered roof system can offer your deck or patio the versatility of opening and closing, ensuring protection against the elements like sun rays or rain.
The patio cover louvers can be adjusted easily, allowing you to seamlessly transition between an exposed or sheltered roof depending on your preferences. The louvers have the capacity to tilt from 0º to 130º, which creates the functionality of an integrated roof, allowing you to tailor the balance of shade and light to your liking throughout the day. This feature significantly enhances your outdoor experience beneath the patio cover year-round no matter the weather conditions.
The adjustable louvered patio covers can be designed to be divided into two separately controlled sections, this will offer practicality during events like barbecues where you can keep the louvers over the grill open if you want to have ventilation for the smoke, while at the same time providing a closed section on the other side for your guests to enjoy a nice shade while keeping the air flowing.
Whether manually adjusting the angle of the roof louvers or utilizing a user-friendly remote control, you have the flexibility to customize the roofing system according to your needs. Moreover, the louvers are meticulously crafted from top-tier recyclable aluminum, establishing them as an environmentally conscious or “green” roofing solution. Notably, these aluminum roofs demand minimal maintenance and can be effortlessly cleaned with a simple mixture of soap and water.
Tip 2: Enhancing Your Louvered Roof Pergola Experience
Your louvered roof pergola provides versatile functionality through various modes:
- Solid Roof Mode: Setting your pergola to this mode will give it the protection qualities of a solid roof. This is perfect to protect your furniture from the elements, high winds, rain, heavy snow, dust storms, humidity, etc. Additionally, it will help prevent tracking mud into your home and it will shield your pets, children’s toys, TV, and barbecue.
- Slightly Open Mode: Having the louvers partially open at around 10% will provide ventilation while still giving you 100% shade. During the hot summer days, this mode is like a chimney-effect. It works best by giving you a refreshing breeze and the feeling of being underneath a shaded tree avoiding the greenhouse effect and eliminating the need for ceiling fans. This setting provides shade regardless of the sun’s position.
- Almost No Pergola Mode: Traditional pergolas are not adjustable therefore lack the ability to allow sunlight to warm up your patio cover. With this mode, you will have the sun’s natural heat warm up the atmosphere in your patio, French doors or large windows, unlike solid pergolas that will only provide shade even on those cold winter days when you desire warmth. This eco-friendly design maximizes natural warmth and light for cold, sunny winter days by fully opening the louvers towards the sun to allow up to 98% of natural heat and sunlight.
