Patented & Water Tested

Our unique louvered system is covered by six (6) patents from Pratic in Italy which emphasizes the uniqueness and quality of our products.  A patented feature unique to Pratic Opera and Vision louvered Pergola® is the management of the rain water.  All the rain from the louvered top is channeled away by the integrated gutter system and down the posts.  The posts serve as the actual downspouts, and there is no need to add unsightly additional external downspouts to the system to disperse water from the top.  This gives the Opera and Vision clean and modern lines, adding to its aesthetic appeal and structural integrity.  Optional roll down “Raso” screens can be added for the OPERA model.  These screens are uniquely integrated within the gutter system and not visible when the screen is fully retracted in the up position.  The tracks are also integrated within the posts for a modern clean look.  Some other systems will only offer optional add on screens with external cassettes and tracks added to the bottom of the gutter system and side posts.  These external screen cassettes are fully visible under the gutter system when the screens are in retracted position.     

The units have been tested to see how waterproof they are by the "Giordano Institute" in Italy. The rain simulation was equal to 369 m/hour with a pressure of 3.4 bars in an undefined time of two rain events or downpours. For more information please inquire with Sunair® main office. Also, what does Bioclimatic mean? Bioclimatic means that our unit meets modern architecture parameters which require respect for the environment, reduced pollution, energy conservation, reduced maintenance, and the creation of an environment with the emphasis on thermal comfort.

The uniqueness with a louvered Pergola® is that the metal louvered blades are opened or closed following a natural cycle of the sun. This enables you the greater flexibility in light penetration or sun blocking. When the blades are opened in the opposite direction to the natural cycle of the sun, the blades block the sun as per below diagram.

There are many reasons we call these Pergola® systems "Bioclimatic". The obvious reasons we call them bioclimatic is because these systems reduce energy, the consumption of heating and air conditioning , control the temperature on the patio. The not so obvious reasons are they meet modern bioclimatic architecture parameters which require respect for the environment, reduced pollution and maintenance, and the creation of improved overall comfort both indoors and outdoors. The bioclimatic systems are also ecologically sound. The materials are also 99% recyclable.
