Pergolas with slats that are on the market at fairly high prices, have a structure that can not be modified to match with your outdoor furnishings.
The slats of the Pergolas, unlike canopies with fabric roofs, do not offer a practical shade; In fact, when the slats of the roof are closed, the area often becomes too dark, and UV protection isn’t guaranteed.
Aluminum slats heat up when sun rays are particularly heavy. Heat is directly transmitted to terrace and in case of rain the sound of rain is unbearable;
Once the rain stops and open the slats all the water accumulated at the roof will be poured on the terrace; Therefore, they’re in need of maintainance.
Bioclimatic pergolas do not have a gutter system so when it rains the water overflows on all sides and make it uncomfortable to use.
In conclusion, the structure of the retractable awning can offer you practical solutions to attach luminaires or heaters, unlike bioclimatic Pergolas because of their pivoting roof.
