Terraces and balconies connect the indoor area of a house with the outdoor and are vital in creating a free and natural sense of living. Both awnings and pergo-las protect against sun and wet weather conditions. Thanks to a well thought-out design approach, the PergoTex II bridges the gap between awnings and patio roof. Innovative details serve to provide pleasant sitting in the open. Featuring a sophisticated folding mechanism, this pergola awning convinces with its clear design idiom without any visible fixings. It can be operated automatically at the touch of a button and opens and retracts into position in one elegant movement. Its robust PVC cover is weatherproof, water-resistant and even stain-resistant, so that it can be cleaned easily. Due to its high stability, the awning withstands even strong winds. A newly developed rain drainage system prevents water from dripping accidentally onto the awning or terrace. LED spotlights integrated into the transoms of the folding structure present an enchanting design element. Up to 48 in-finitely dimmable spotlights illuminate the outdoor space and create a relaxed ambiance on the terrace – people sitting under the PergoTex II are well protected, yet feel close to the horizon.
