The curved shape of the pergola adds a special aesthetic and offers a different note to the space, while offering protection from the rain and the sun. The perimeter coverage was created with awning boxes that enclose a transparent film. The aluminium parts were painted at a RAL1013 code. Total space coverage of 62m2.
A special shading material, high technology PVC, 3-layer fabric was used at the pergola for protection from the UV sun rays. Moreover, the fabric is waterproof, preventing water from stagnating on the construction; also, gutters are mounted, leading water to the ground. The pergola construction has wind load resistance 7 Beaufort. At the empty semi-circles in the front and back of the construction, a fixed 5milimeter solid polycarbonate has been placed. The awning boxes on the upper part bear an aluminium shell, which encloses the transparent film, the axis and the mechanism, for bigger protection. At the lower part of the transparency there is a parallel aluminium counterweight, which moves on side drivers with a brush, adding bigger insulation. The transparent film, besides the protection it offers from the cold and the wind, retains the temperature that comes from the interior energy sources of the space.
