Bioclimatic Pergola: What is it and what are its advantages?

A Bioclimatic Pergola is an innovative structure, made up of folding and motorized blades, which adapts to any type of home or business.

Bioclimatic pergolas are aluminum structures that offer intelligent solar protection and natural temperature regulation, as well as protection against inclement weather such as rain or wind. 

The bioclimatic name comes from its slats designed to acclimatize the interior space by automatically creating shadows and currents. The motorized slats open or close via remote control or smartphone to regulate the entry of light and sun, heat, rain and air currents to let in light in winter and protect from the sun in summer.

Their main advantage is that they allow you to create a new space in your home that you can enjoy all year round. Bioclimatic pergolas protect from the sun and rain and allow you to take advantage of decks, rooftops or gardens without the need for works.

Types of bioclimatic pergolas

With movable slats

They use remote control or smartphone to regulate the position of the slats. By modifying the opening or the inclination of the slats, the amount of light that enters the interior is controlled. With the slats closed, a completely sealed space is achieved. By playing with the inclination of the slats, the perfect air intake is achieved to acclimatize the space.

Ideal to protect and expand different spaces, and that takes into account the weather conditions of the environment in which it is inserted – rain, wind and sun.

  • Solar protection

The regulation of the blades allows you to control the entry of light, so you don’t have to worry about the sun’s rays.

  • Waterproof

Unlike the Pergola with fixed blades, the Bioclimatic Pergola allows you to create a waterproof barrier, integrating a drainage system that prevents water from entering when it is raining.

The water is evacuated from one side of the Pergola, in this way it does not accumulate, preventing the water from falling when the blades are reoriented.

The rotating and waterproof blades system makes it possible to manage the amount of light on an esplanade, as well as completely protect it from the rain.

  • Energy Efficiency

With the type of control that we mentioned earlier, the bioclimatic pergola becomes an effective solution to create a pleasant outdoor space all year round.

These actions will make it possible to regulate the different temperatures and in this way it may be possible to save energy in air conditioning and heating systems.

  • Personalization

It is possible to install and integrate other solutions in the pergola. There are several options on the market, such as:

Wind-resistant motorized blinds – an even more protected and comfortable environment.

Sensors – sun, rain and wind.

  • Reduced maintenance

Unlike other types of pergolas, such as wooden ones or even some types of manual awnings, bioclimatic pergolas require less maintenance. They are simple and easy to clean.

  • Resistance

The solid structure of the Bioclimatic Pergola has another notable advantage: its resistance.

The basic advantage of bioclimatic pergolas Regarding traditional pergolas or gazebos, it is to enable a controlled comfort space in your home that is protected from the sun and rain. In addition to controlling the adverse weather conditions at any time of the year to regulate the temperature and protect from the sun, rain or wind during the four seasons in a natural way.

Bioclimatic pergolas are a clear example of bioclimatic technology since they are efficient, sustainable and environmentally responsible elements thanks to their great versatility.
