What is a bioclimatic pergola?
The bioclimatic pergola is a particular model that differs from classic pergolas due to its adjustable blades. Depending on the orientation you give to them, the pergola can protect you from the sun or, on the contrary, let the light pass through, serve as a windbreak or let it circulate to cool you down, but also protect you from the rain. It should be noted that the blades of the bioclimatic pergola are oriented between 0 and 110° to meet all needs.
The bioclimatic pergola is a good compromise for those who do not have the possibility of investing in the purchase of a veranda. It is indeed very aesthetic, light and elegant, very trendy while being less expensive. Thanks to the tilting slats, you can protect yourself from the sun, rain or wind or, on the contrary, allow air and light to pass through, allowing you to adjust the structure to your needs without the need for additional purchases (blinds , windbreak, parasol, etc.).
Thanks to the action of the tilting slats and its opening, you are protected from the summer sun without suffering the effect of the heat, unlike a veranda which very quickly becomes too hot. You can protect yourself from strong winds in all seasons and let the cooler air filter through on your summer evenings, so you can dine or relax in complete serenity. As for the rain, it is completely stopped thanks to the rampart formed by the blades. But the bioclimatic pergola also has the advantage of protecting you from prying eyes if necessary, and this in just a few seconds. It also protects you from cooking odors and direct smoke when your neighbors are enjoying their barbecue.
