Where is the motor located and does it add any additional width to the retractable patio and deck pergola cover system? All

  • The motor on roman fold models that are motorized is always in the rear of the unit and usually located in the middle of the unit on a 3 span unit and on either the left or right side on a 2 span unit. On the Bioclimatique rotating louver roof model, the motor/actuator is either on the left or right side of the frame. For the Naples and Milan models the motors are located inside posts and are not visible. The Perugia model cannot be motorized at the present time.

Which retractable patio deck pergola cover system model is right for me?

  • That depends on what type of weather you plan to have the product extended or partially extended in, where you would like to install the retractable patio deck pergola cover system, amount of wind you need the unit to handle when extended or partially extended, the size you need or want (the area you want to cover), whether you want it for sun protection only or sun and heavy rain or sun, heavy rain, hail and snow and of course your budget.

Can I leave my retractable patio deck pergola cover system open in the wind and if so, how much wind?

  • All of our retractable patio deck pergola cover system models are Beaufort wind load approved in the fully extended position from Beaufort 6 (25-30mph/39-49km/hr) to Beaufort 12 (73mph+/118km/hr). Beaufort wind load number between 6 and 12 varies based on model and size (Perugia, Naples and Milan models excluded and are not Beaufort wind load approved).

HEAVY rainfall is considered more than .30” (7.6mm) per hour per the American Meteorological Society.

Can I install your retractable patio deck pergola cover   system on vinyl or aluminum siding, stucco, or on masonry (common materials used for masonry are brick, concrete block, granite, glass block, marble, travertine, cast stone, limestone and cob) or a mobile home?

  • All models offered by Retractableawnings.com can be installed in to any of the above.
