Wood is a material of great nobility that allows you to enjoy a pergola of great beauty. Its major drawbacks are its high cost and durability. They require annual maintenance.

  • Metal pergolas

This type of pergolas are very durable, easy to maintain, affordable prices and whit great finishing possibilities. They can be painted in any colour in the RAL range, including the wood effect finish. With a spectacular result.

  • Bioclimatic pergolas

Within the metal pergolas, we highlight the bioclimatic pergolas for their modern design and for making the most of the environmental climatic conditions.

They do not require great maintenance and their cost is not very high. They are resistant and durable and offer you great advantages: motorized slats, regulation of light, temperature, variety of finishes and shades, canopy to protect the canvas when it is folded, perfect integration with the space.

Being able to regulate the slat degrees of inclination, great energy savings and maximum solar protection are achieved.
