DesignBUILD 2018 top picks – Open air operable louvred retractable pergola

07 May 2018

Eurola has brought automation to pergolas with this nifty design that increases the functionality of your outdoor space.

The pergola is operable and also fully retracts to your desired extension to provide both the shade of a covered area or the sun of an open backyard. The cursive shape of the louvre means there is minimal stack when the pergola is completely retracted.

The pergola can also be integrated into home automation systems, with Somfy sun, wind and rain sensors available as optional extras. These enable your pergola extend automatically to protect you when the sun is at its hottest or from rain.

Additionally, an optional LED remote dimmer allows you to control the level of lighting in your pergola or garden.
