Louvre roof systems from Vergola (NSW) offer several advantages to the homeowner over various aluminium brands in the market. A unique set of features puts Vergola ahead of the pack when it comes to choosing the ultimate roof system for any outdoor living space.
Made of longer lasting Australian-made Colorbond
Vergola louvre roof systems are made from Australian-made BlueScope Colorbond - the roofing material of choice for nearly half of all new Australian homes and over 80% of all Australian gutters. Colorbond is manufactured from Zincalume steel with an aluminium/zinc/magnesium alloy coating that is stronger and longer-lasting than aluminium. A conversion layer is applied to the steel surface to improve adhesion while Colorbond’s Super Polyester coating technology ensures Vergola’s finish retains its ‘as-new’ look for longer. The final touch comes from the exterior grade paint baked onto the Zincalume steel base, making Vergola resistant to chipping, peeling and cracking.
Double-skin aerofoil louvres for a cooler experience
Vergola’s unique double-skin aerofoil-shaped louvre creates an insulating air-gap that reduces heat radiation to the living space below. This means Vergola will keep the covered area much cooler than a single-skin aluminium louvre system.
Light control and weather protection
A flick of a switch is all that’s required to angle the Vergola louvres and adjust comfort levels from maximum natural light and diffused light to shade. When fully open, the Vergola allows 89% of all available light inside. The unique interlocking design feature enables the louvre to close when it rains. Though a Vergola is rainproof under normal conditions, it may allow small amounts of water in during heavy rain or strong wind and rain. Optional weather seals are available for further protection.
Vergola’s unique double skinned design provides excellent thermal insulation from heat as well as sound reduction unlike other single skinned roofing materials such as aluminium that are good conductors of heat. The adjustable louvres also reduce heating and cooling costs by controlling the amount of direct sunlight to exposed windows as well as promoting ventilation.
Design and configuration
Vergola offers a high level of design versatility as it can be built to any style including flat, skillion or gabled. From single bays to multiple bays, Vergolas can be designed into small openings or large areas.
Customisation and integration
Vergola’s adjustable roofing system can be incorporated into a range of structures, either freestanding or as part of an existing building. Homeowners can experience the full potential of lifestyle benefits by integrating the louvre roof systems into their new home or renovation projects. The use of a range of architectural fittings and features ensures that Vergola structures fit into contemporary building designs as well as period styles.
Vergola louvre roof systems can be operated by remote control using the automated controller, which allows smooth operation of the louvres. The controller comes with a state-of-the-art rain sensor to automatically close the louvres at the onset of rain. The controller can also be connected to home automation or fire systems.
