This is a new, state-of-the-art, aesthetically and technically perfected product – a pergola which can transform from a shade into a waterproof roof just in a few seconds.
It is resistant to rain, snow, hail and strong wind while assuring optimum functioning for decades and without additional maintenance.
From a trend to a hybrid
State-of-the-art trends for large glass walls on residential facilities, and low-energy and passive constructions dictated the need for a controlled penetration of the sun into the space. Often, there are also terraces on the sunny side of the facility, which require shade in the summer and a roof when it rains, but the classic designs significantly limit the permeability of light into the living space.
Hence, in 2012 we were the first in Europe to develop a hybrid roof + shade = Hard-Top waterproof pergola, which meets all the conditions, received patent protection, and won a silver recognition award from the RGZC.
The Brisole Hard-Top sunbreaker saves a lot of energy, which would otherwise be required for cooling, heating, and lighting, and also has a positive impact on the well-being of the users.
It meets all the needs of the users who require sun in the morning and in the evening, shade during the day, and a waterproof roof when it rains. We are able to allow, limit or prevent the penetration of the sun and heat into the space in only a few seconds – with the help of a remote control.
The Brisole Hard-Top waterproof pergola basic model consists of a supporting frame, columns with hidden drainage, slats, a hidden gutter, motor drive, and decorative protective sheet metal.
