The Gennius L1S model is our “wooden pergola” Gennius, perfect for waterproofing an outdoor area with a retractable roof cover that offers the aesthetics of a wooden pergola. The aluminum framework is clad in Scandinavian Spruce and available in light or dark stains.
This heavy-duty retractable pergola awning was specifically designed and engineered to handle rain.
The L1S Gennius guide rail profiles are supported by integrated wood-clad extruded aluminum structural rafters and column (post) framework. The maximum (free-spanned!) projection of this Gennius model is 19'8" with a maximum width of 42'8". That's over 800 square feet of space covered with one motorized fabric roof! Wind resistance is guaranteed up to class 6 in accordance with UNI EN PR 13561. Integrated rain management technology captures rainfall and routes it down the sealed fabric slope into the front-end gutter and the front support posts. The Gennius system has a protective hood covering the fabric when in the retracted position. It is engineered with a special 7-layer aluminum panel that is raindrop quiet and unobtrusive. The waterproof, fire-retardant fabric protects from damaging and uncomfortable UV light and heat and keeps the rainwater off the space it protects.
