The markilux pergola range has been expanded by the addition of the new "stretch version". It's because large awning systems offer suitable protection against both sun and rain. Even in the hospitality sector they are finding a lot of favour. These systems create an area in the open air where guests can sit comfortably at almost any time of the day or year.
Single or multi-field units are possible
"With the 'pergola stretch', we created a model of superlatives, which offers all-round weather protection", explains Michael Gerling, Director of R&D and Production. Impressively, a single unit can cover an area of up to seven by seven metres. Moreover, several units can be linked together to cover an area of 25 by 7 metres.
Toothed belt-driven gear system with strong transport power
What is unique about the "stetch version" of the pergola is its innovative toothed belt-driven gear system. The drive is connected to a toothed wheel in the guide tracks and pretensioned in the factory. This sun protection system is available with two or three guide tracks depending on the width required. In addition, a wall sealing profile ensures a clean transition to the coverboard. It is there to protect the cover against rain and soiling.
Transverse profiles transport the cover
"In order to be able to sit high and dry under the awning, our waterproof and highly flame-retardant fabrics are put to good use", Mr. Gerling emphasizes. Transverse profiles, which move up and down the lateral guide tracks, extend and retract the awning cover in similar fashion to a roof festoon. LED Lines can be selected to provide a pleasant lighting effect. In addition, lighting systems or heaters can also be attached to a cross-beam.
