Bioclimatic pergolas: What are their features and what distinguishes them from classic pergolas

The charm of open spaces is undeniable. Whether you're enjoying a sunrise and the feel of the sun's delicate rays running across your skin, or gazing at the twinkling stars in the darkness of the night sky.
To turn the pleasure of spending hours outside into a truly unforgettable experience, a pergola is needed to protect you, your family, friends or your clients from the vagaries of the weather.

In this article, you will learn more about the characteristics of bioclimatic pergolas, their advantages and the features that distinguish them from classic models.

What are bioclimatic pergolas?

This type of pergolas are actually freestanding aluminum structures with an automated roof. It, in turn, is made up of slats that, depending on the specific model, can move along it or rotate.

Bioclimatic pergolas are ideal for the outdoor spaces of hotels or restaurants, as well as for the courtyard of the home. Constructions are not only an additional ornament to any building, but also have a number of practical benefits.


One of the main functions of this type of pergolas is that they provide round-the-clock protection from the weather conditions outside. Bioclimatic models protect against sun, wind and rain thanks to the movable roof slats that regulate the access of light and the flow of air. When it rains outside, the pergolas close and prevent water from entering the enclosure. Their water drainage system does not allow the space to get wet when they are reopened.

In addition, they offer shade to anyone who decides to enjoy the view in their yard or that of the hotel or restaurant, with a cup of coffee or a cocktail in hand.

Last but not least, bioclimatic pergolas provide an opportunity for privacy — a corner where everyone could relax and simply enjoy life.

Advantages of bioclimatic pergolas

Bioclimatic pergolas are beautiful and practical accents to complete the look of an outdoor space. They make it a cozy and inviting place for your friends or clients to socialize and have a bite against the backdrop of the soft pink hues of the sunset or the morning sun.

Pergolas can also be used to decorate the room and add charm. Their structural elements can be used to place creepers or vines. They will add a touch of greenery and freshness, providing a gentle and delicate touch with nature, as well as additional natural shade. Another option for decoration is the decoration with lights to create more of a feeling of coziness and romance.

Among other advantages of bioclimatic models are:

  • easy maintenance and use;
  • presence of a drainage system;
  • high-quality coating;
  • durability and waterproofness;
  • possibility of embedding thermal insulation in the slats.

And if you ever decide to sell your property or business, having this type of pergola can attract more buyers because of the advantages it offers. This, in turn, will increase the price of the property, and in the event of a sale, the market value added by the structure may exceed the costs of its construction.

Traditional pergolas are aluminum constructions, made of hard-to-burn three-layer fabric, with an automated roof. They are distinguished by a clean design and a simplified structure.

There are different models of classic pergolas, where the roof can be flat or curved, and the structure can be attached to the facade of the given building or be independent.
This type of pergolas has a drainage system. In most of them, it is built into their front two legs.
