Bioclimatic pergolas

What are bioclimatic pergolas?

 

Before getting to know what bioclimatic pergolas are, we would like to provide some context and talk about bioclimatic architecture and why it is so necessary for us to rethink our homes with criteria of sustainability, energy saving and comfort.

Bioclimatic architecture is based on the use of environmental conditions for the benefit of the needs of the users of a house. We should not treat the design of a house in a humid area in the same way as a house in a dry area, or, within the same area, houses with different orientations. It is a matter of carrying out personalised projects for each reality and working with materials and structures that provide maximum energy efficiency.

A bioclimatic house can achieve great savings and even become sustainable in its entirety.

 

From the very beginning, bioclimatic architecture has focused its efforts on the interior areas of houses in search of the longed-for energy efficiency, forgetting, in many cases, the exterior areas such as patios or terraces. This is where bioclimatic pergolas come in, the best tool to enjoy outdoor spaces all year round without leaving the philosophy of bioclimatic architecture aside.

Bioclimatic pergolas are aluminium or wooden structures with adjustable slats on the roof that move to regulate heat, light, humidity, rain and air movement, allowing light to pass through in winter and protection from the sun in summer, or the correct ventilation to help regulate the interior temperature throughout the year. There are also those that include a part of work and enclosures on the sides with glass curtains.

The pergolas that were only used to provide shade by means of climbing plants are becoming a thing of the past.

 

 

 

The adjustable louvres on the roof of bioclimatic pergolas allow the entry of sunlight to be regulated while allowing air to circulate, regulating the temperature.

 

Main features of bioclimatic pergolas

 

The key to this type of pergolas are their roofs, built with adjustable and motorised aluminium slats. They can be rotated and stopped in a certain position, allowing the desired amount of light to be regulated at any given moment. Thanks to this innovative system, the temperature is controlled, allowing you to enjoy any outdoor area whatever the weather. The possibility of turning the slats also prevents the greenhouse effect, as the air is constantly being renewed, preventing the heat from accumulating.

In addition, these rotating slats are watertight, so that when it rains or snows, you can continue to enjoy them under their protection without fear of getting wet. In fact, they have a drainage system on one of their sides that prevents water from stagnating and falling on the space where they are installed when the slats open again.

 

LED lighting can also be installed in bioclimatic pergolas, offering the possibility of creating perfect atmospheres to enjoy the space at any time of the day and regardless of the weather. LED lights surround the entire perimeter of the pergola.

 

 

Advantages of bioclimatic pergolas

 

 

  • Sun protection: The motorised, adjustable ceiling louvres regulate the amount of light entering the room.
  • Wind protection: in addition to being able to regulate the air inlet, the louvres close completely in the event of strong gusts of wind.
  • Rain protection: The slats can be closed hermetically in case of rain, preventing the passage of water. In addition, they have a drainage system so that the water does not wet the room when the slats are opened again.
  • Design: the design of bioclimatic pergolas is modern and allows for a wide range of combinations.
  • Easy clean: the cleaning of the masts and slats is done with soap and water.
  • Low maintenance: Unlike other outdoor protection systems, bioclimatic pergolas are almost maintenance-free.
  • Energy saving: The sun in winter or good ventilation in summer will avoid the use of heating and air conditioning inside the house.
