Pur Patio pergolas - a token of quality and sustainability!
The horizontal component of a pergola is usually composed of a minimum of two beams intended to support perpendicular joists placed at regular intervals.
On the Old Continent, pergolas often serve to support grape vines or other vegetation allowing shelter from the sun.
In North America, pergolas are more often used to delineate a space or simply to add a design element to a wooden terrace.
A well-planned pergola should offer protection from harmful sun rays. Consequently, its design and orientation are very important.
Pergolas can be fitted with removable curtains (electric or manual) in order to enjoy the sun or not, according to the user’s wishes.
Since pergolas are usually structures of some height and size, and are subject to important wind stress, strong lateral braces are essential.
In addition, chances are that the pergola will have to support a large accumulation of snow. Therefore, it must be designed to withstand the climate.
