Here at Apollo, customers often ask if our systems can help protect against the rain. Simply put, the answer is YES! Each Apollo motorized louvered pergola consists of adjustable louvers that, when closed, overlap and interlock to create a near waterproof seal. Finally, you can extend the life of your electronics and outdoor furniture by placing them in a protected area. This keeps your belongings out of direct sunlight, and it will reduce the likelihood of water damage.
What an Apollo Motorized Louvered Pergola Is and How It Works
At Apollo, our goal is to provide customers with the Ultimate Adjustable Patio Cover System. To us, that means offering a system that will hold up to the elements while supplying a lifetime of daily use. To achieve this goal, we started by creating a system with modern technology, using only the highest-quality materials available.
What Is an Apollo Motorized Louvered Pergola?
Apollo’s motorized pergolas consist of horizontal slats (called “louvers”). By connecting the louvers to a motor, you are able to open and close the system. With the help of a remote and/or smart device these louvers can rotate and be repositioned to your desired angle. This gives you control over your patio cover and thus, your outdoor spaces.
You can open the louvers to enjoy a beautiful view of the sky and to increase the airflow and ventilation. Likewise, you can close the louvers to keep away the harsh rays of the sun or to protect against unwanted weather. Our systems are perfect to accommodate both everyday living and future social gatherings. Learn more about what louvered pergolas are and what makes them unique by clicking here.
How We Design Each Motorized Louvered Pergola to Protect Against the Rain and Other Elements
Our Patented Louver Design
When in the closed position, our patented 8” louvers interlock to create a virtually waterproof seal. Primarily, this is what keeps rainwater away from desired areas. To help control the flow of water even further, we pitch one side of the louvers a fraction higher than the other. It is just enough to keep the water moving and stops it from pooling on the top of the system. When it rains, the water travels along the louvers and gets channeled into our 360° gutter system.
We Use the Right Materials
To maximize how well our system holds up to the elements we use only the highest-quality materials available for our framing and components. Marine-grade extruded aluminum gives our systems the durability necessary to withstand the harshest environment. Plus, as an added benefit, it also requires minimal maintenance. In addition, we use a high-quality powder coating finish to offer beautiful color options, as well as offering excellent environmental protection. This ensures your system will be resistance to stains, scratches, dirt, and UV rays.
Our Motorized Louvered Pergolas Can Even Protect from the Rain Automatically
With the integration of wind and rain sensors, you do not even have to lift a finger. Your motorized patio cover will automatically detect when the weather is changing and will open and close accordingly. This means your system will protect your outdoor spaces even when you are not around.
