What are pergolas?

The pergola is a light construction, a frame structure for the terrace or garden that can be made of wood or metal (aluminum is most often used). By retractable pergolas we mean those structures that can be closed or opened to protect from the effects of the weather: strong sun, rain, wind or even snow.


Types of pergolas

Depending on the model and their complexity, the pergolas can only have a retractable roof or the side parts - the walls. There are several criteria for classifying pergolas, according to their role, according to the material from which they are made, according to the constructive structure. Regarding the material from which they are made, we distinguish:

  • decorative wooden pergolas

  • wrought iron pergolas

  • aluminum pergolas


Depending on the constructive structure, pergolas are:


  • pergolas in frames, whose structure rests on pillars fixed in the ground; they can be single frames, double frames.

  • suspended pergolas, without poles, supported by cables (ties).

  • free pergolas, without a roof.

  • pergolas with retractable roof made of adjustable slats, canvas with folds. or tensioned canvas.

  • pergolas with anti-wind walls, with sliding glass doors.

  • bioclimatic pergolas.
