ALUMINIUM PERGOLA WITH OPENING ROOF

How our rotating louvered roof pergolas work

Our pergolas with opening roofs, more often referred to as louvered roofs or Outdoor Living Pods, feature a series of extruded aluminium louvers that form the roof, each interlocking (overlapping) with each other to provide a watertight covering. The louvers are connected via hi-tensile stainless steel pins in each end, into punched slots within the front and rear cross beam of the pergola. Additionally, a second pin to the rear of each louver connects to an aluminium drive arm. This drive arm is subsequently connected to a linear actuator motor, the type used to open large skylights and rooflights, with the motor positioned either on the inside of the cross beam (Deluxe model) or to the top of the cross beam (Classic model).

The pergola motor is connected to a receiver built within the structure framework that enables it to be activated by radio transmitter – a handheld remote control. When a command is sent from the remote control to open the motor, the motor drive shaft extends at an angle, pushing the louver drive arm it is connected to, subsequently causing the roof louvers to rotate on their pins. The motor automatically stops at its fully extended position, which positions the louvers at 150 degrees, however, it can be stopped using the remote control at any position in-between, enabling the louvers to be perfectly positioned based on the angle of the sun to provide sun or shade under the pergola.

Furthermore, a rain sensor can be connected to the motor configuration, wired into the circuit board built within the pergola framework which senses rainfall (like an automatic car windscreen wiper) and sends a close command to the motor, with the motor shaft retracting subsequently rotating the louvers fully closed, where they will form an entirely watertight roof covering. Like all of our external shading systems, it is possible with the aid of a smart hub, connected to the broadband router, to function our pergolas using an app on all smartphones, from anywhere in the country or world.

Louvered Roof Reviews

Exceeded expectations

I thought I would drop you a line to say how thrilled both my clients and myself are with the end product. The design, build quality and installation far exceeded anything we expected. Even though the project is far from complete, they (Outdoor Living Pods) both look absolutely stunning.

A special thanks goes to the installation team. Their work ethic and commitment to delivering a perfect product was amazing. Brad the project manager has such superb communication skills and a positive can do attitude, everything ran like a Swiss watch.

I would finally like to add that from my initial visit to your head office a few months ago, I knew you were the Company we could trust. Our decision was never based on price, but value for money and giving the business to a Company that could deliver. Having done detailed research on automated pergolas, you were by far away the most professionally complete Company to deal with.

Astill - Derby

Absolutely brilliant

Blown away with our pod! It has exceeded our expectations and Brad and the team are absolutely brilliant- what a lovely bunch of guys.

Turney - Caterham

I am delighted

I am delighted with the results and your team was a delight too! Looking forward to enjoying my extended living space!

Ritson - Halstead

Extremely pleased

The installation was completed today and both Jane and I are extremely pleased with its appearance, and from what we can see so far, the quality of the construction. Your team are a great credit to Caribbean Blinds. They worked hard, were very tidy, courteous and took great care that the installation – particularly the attachment to the house – was carried out professionally.

Warbey - Reigate

A first class job

We had our Outdoor Living Pod installed over the past couple of days and I wanted to write to say thank you and congratulate your team of three fitters for an absolutely outstanding job. We could not be more pleased with the finished result, the work ethic and craftsmanship of the three guys or their continued good humour and light-hearted banter over the past couple of days. I can honestly say that we could not have wished for a better team or a better result. Thrilled is not a work I use lightly but in this case, it is thoroughly appropriate. Thanks to you and the team and all those back in production who built the Pod (and who probably don’t get much of a shout out) for a first class job.

Howell - Milton Keynes

Excellent communication

We are extremely delighted with our new Outdoor Living Pod! It looks great and is exactly what we envisaged. The whole experience from start to finish has been easy and stress-free. From the initial quote and survey through to the installation, everything has been dealt with professionally and efficiently with excellent communication. The fitters did a brilliant job and were friendly and respectful. All in all, we would be very happy to recommend Caribbean Blinds. This is a high-end product but the price is reflected in the quality and workmanship. We cannot wait to start reaping the benefits of our Pod for many years to come.

Jephson - Mansfield

All done very smoothly

Just to say your installation team, were very helpful and a credit to the company. All done very smoothly.

Lance - Hampshire

Very impressed

We are really pleased with how the Outdoor Living Pod looks. We love being able to have meals in the Pod, even when the weather is inclement. We were very impressed with the installation team… who were efficient, considerate and polite. We knew how expensive the Pod would be, so were slightly apprehensive about whether we would be able to justify the cost to ourselves, however, we have been very pleased with it. It certainly came into its own on August bank holiday Sunday, when we had a party here. Our friends were very impressed… with the most common comments being ‘WOW it’s fantastic’ followed by ‘I’ve never seen anything like this- where did you find it?

Brown - Essex

Most impressed with the service

We have been most impressed with the service that we have received from your company, from initial consultation right through to the ordering and fitting process of our Outdoor Living Pod. It has proved even better than we expected and considerably enhances our property. We look forward to ‘needing’ the shade it will provide.
