Pergola – for any time of day and year
An apartment or house with its own outdoor space – be it a terrace or a garden – is a dream for many people. If you are lucky enough to have it, it is worth considering the right arrangement, something which will allow you to make the most of the space and adapt it to the needs of the household. A Pergola can help.
A terrace or a garden, even the smallest, is an ideal place to relax, eat together, and host guests. There is nothing nicer than relaxing outdoors after work or organising a garden party for your friends. One factor that can spoil those plans is the weather, but we can also fight back thanks to pergolas using modern technologies.
A Pergola is a terrace cover. It comes in a freestanding version or it can be attached to the façade of the building, hence, it can shield any space. Akant offers both slat and fabric pergolas. The foundation for both types is a solid powder-coated aluminium construction.
The slat pergola canopy consists of aluminium feathers that can be rotated 130 degrees. Thanks to this, depending on your needs, the pergola can completely roof-over the space or let in a certain amount of light. In the case of fabric pergolas, we can cover a selected space.
Both solutions protect against excessive sunlight as well as rain. If the first function is your priority, it is worth considering adding side guards to the pergola in the form of a screen. The screen reduces high temperatures on hot days and provides a sense of privacy as well.
In turn, when the impulse for you to decide on buying a pergola is to extend the season when you can enjoy the charms of your terrace, it is worth considering glazing for the side walls. This solution will make your stay on the terrace comfortable even when it is windy or rainy. The pergola can then be additionally equipped with heat radiators, which will guarantee thermal comfort.
It is worth mentioning that the pergola also has as standard special protections which shield the space from rain. Thanks to waterproof materials, pillars with water drainage in the chosen direction, and wind resistance class 3, the pergola can also give you shelter on rainy days.
Regardless of the type of pergola you select, it is possible to use weather automation; using wind, solar or temperature sensors, the system will control the cover according to the specific needs.
The pergola is also a great solution for spending time outdoors in the evening. Thanks to the possibility to equip it with LED lighting, you can spend time in your backyard oasis until late at night.
Pergolas are increasingly chosen to cover both private terraces and gardens as well as public use spaces – restaurant gardens or a hotel’s leisure area. The many options for configuring the cover allow you to perfectly match it to your individual needs, something which easily convinces customers looking for premium solutions.
