Pergola awnings are a safe and stable solution for providing shading over large patio areas. However, rain can quickly put paid to outdoor fun – or it used to. Now Warema, the sun shading expert, has two new weatherproof Perea awnings in its range that comfortably extend the time spend outdoors even when it is pouring down.
Don't be misled
by the slender looks
Many customers dream of a large patio that increases the living space to the outdoors. The new pergola awning Perea P60 provides attractive, modern shading that can cope with even strong winds and rain showers. Its rainproof, light-permeable curtain contains a PVC grid that guides the water into the integrated drainage channel. From there, its course is controlled down the pole. Thanks to the large-scale fabric guidance by means of a spring steel strip, the patented Warema secudrive® system guarantees excellent fabric tension and ensures that installation is especially quick and easy.
Overall, the P60 is notable for its slender looks. The model is ideal for private buildings that require an elegant yet resistant sun shading solution for areas of up to 30 square metres. When retracted, the fabric disappears completely inside the compact cover panel, which prevents soiling. In order to further increase the benefits of the Perea, vertical awnings with ZIP guides can also be integrated that run along the poles also without an irritating light gap. This means that the users are protected against sun, wind and rain on all sides when required. LED stripes in the guide rails and radiant heaters enable the patio to be used as a comfortable living space even when darkness falls or in colder weather. All elements are controlled with ease and comfort by means of the Warema Mobile System.
option for the commercial building sector
Warema designed the new pergola awning Perea P70 with a particular eye to the requirements of hotels and restaurants. It also has a weatherproof curtain that is extended and retracted by means of counterweight technology with toothed belts. Travelling cross braces also tighten the fabric, and when partly retracted create the attractive cloud curtain thanks to the innovative pleating technique. This is a key feature of the design of the P70. When fully retracted, the folded fabric is protected by a rain hood.
With the option of shading areas of up to six by six metres, the awning is ideal for sun shading in outdoor gastronomy – and for protection against the rain. Furthermore, the Perea P70 has been developed to easily accommodate additional features. Thanks to clip technology, LED stripes are as easy to attach as they are to remove, and provide atmospheric lighting of the patio. The required cables are guided to the light rails almost invisibly in fabric pockets. Additional radiant heaters will extend the outdoor season into autumn. And with vertical shading with ZIP guidance, guests will be completely unaffected by sun, wind and rain.
