Modern pergola designs and their functionalities

Modern pergolas made from quality materials, like aluminium, offer a unique set of benefits and features that can’t be rivalled by traditional pergola designs.

At Caribbean Blinds we have designed a full range of louvered pergolas, where each element has been carefully considered to create a premium high-performing external shading solution.

Some of the key features of a garden pergola manufactured by our experts include:

  • Constructed from corrosion-resistant, extruded aluminium for durability and longevity.
  • Clean lines with no visible screws or fixings, including galvanised steel supports contained within the post uprights for a seamless attachment to the ground.
  • A concealed guttering system built within the cross beams, connects to downpipes within the nominated post uprights for effective water drainage from the roof.
  • Louvered roof is operated via built-in, powerful and reliable radio controlled motors.
