Andrea

We have Soltec pergola Agava since April 2021. What we like most about Soltec pergolas is that there are no visible screws, which other pergola providers have not offered us. We also like the fact that Soltec is a Slovenian manufacturer and we can get in touch with them as quickly as possible. We decided to go for a pergola with glass, which allows us to make the most of daylight even in the colder months. The service and product are 10/10 and I am happy to recommend you further!

FAQ

The Bioclimatic pergola Agava is developed and produced in Slovenia, at Soltec, in Dobova. For over 20 years we have been developing and manufacturing our own modern blinds, dynamic facades and balconies. Since 2013, we have been developing and manufacturing bioclimatic pergolas. In 2020, we added to the Agava product line – Carport Agava!

Bioclimatic is a pergola whose roof consists of rotating aluminium blades that allow air to circulate in addition to regulating light. This creates a microclimate that is comfortable to stay under the pergola.

Waterproof roof blades that are made of extruded aluminium, rotate and allow opening, regulating shading and sun exposure. Blades are patented and protected by the patent SI 24401 A.

You will receive instructions for use and maintenance when purchasing the pergola. Basic cleaning of the product is recommended and should be performed as directed. Above all, it is very important that the gutter is passable, that the blades are cleaned and that there are no obstructions on the roof that could damage the blades when closed. Maintenance or annual service is performed only by an authorized person. After installation you will receive a warranty and user manual.

It is recommended that the blades are slightly closed in winter so that they do not adhere to each other when freezing. Different pergola models offer different load functionality according to pergola dimensions. This tells us whether the blades should be opened or closed. For Pergolas with lower functionality load we recommend opening the blades, thus preventing the accumulation of snow on the roof and consequently any possible injuries to the pergola. Pergola should be inspected regularly. If there are any visible changes and damage in the event of a frost, it is necessary to contact the company or an authorized distributor immediately.

When the blades are closed, the pergola does not allow water to pass through. In combination with EPDM rubber for external use and overlay profile of the blades we guarantee watertightness of the blades.

According to EN 13561, all Agava pergolas are certified for wind resistance in accordance with wind class 3 to 49 km / h. Our pergolas are designed to withstand even higher wind loads up to 120 km / h. However, it should be kept in mind that in this case the blades are always in the open position.
In the case of wind extremes, it is advisable to purchase a wind sensor that opens the blades in case of strong winds.

The pergola can be installed as a self-standing, but it can also be installed in a wall and then supported by two columns. Pergola can also be installed in an existing concrete constructions or a wooden or iron substructure. In this case poles are not necessary and we execute a custom made solution for the water exits.

Yes, the big advantage of the blades roof is that it is possible to regulate daylight by turning the blades. The sun rays always pass through the roof at an angle, allowing us to adjust the ideal light. That is why we no longer have problems with a distracting direct light. Side views can also be veiled by ZIP rolo shutters that let in less light or sliding panels that allow more daylight.

The Agava SL product line is made of aluminium construction and the Agava XL product line is made of steel construction. The blades are made of aluminium.

LED lights are integrated into the rotating blades. LED strips can be 0,5m to 1,5m long and with the options of adjusting the light intensity, you can optimize the brightness of your terrace, read a book, enjoy a dinner or an evening cup of tea,…

It depends on the spatial ordinance or directive of each municipality, so we recommend that you check it at the Administrative Unit. In principle, however, a building permit for such structures is not required.

We are very flexible with our system and we always find a suitable solution. Nevertheless, there is a possibility that because of the slopes on the building, we cannot offer our construction. In order to provide the perfect solution according to your terrace/balcony, we optimize the pergola installation.

In case that water is stuck in the blades for some obstacle or any other reason, this should not be a problem for the pergola and its functioning. However, if there is a suspicion that water is retained in the blades, the move of the bladess is done for approximately 15%. After this is carried out, all water must drain easily through the water channel in the blades into the drainage channel within 30 seconds.

Every blades has its own draing canal, water from the blades drains through the canals, integrated in the construction frame and through the integrated water canals in the construction poles.

We have 4 standard colors and more than 1400 additional RAL colour options.

Pergola can be heated with additional IR panels. One heater covers up to 15 m2. However, the construction itself is not tight, which means that it cannot be completely closed. The air is always circulating.

The pergola cannot be equated with the winter garden. Pergola has the function of a ventilated terrace, crates bioclimate and prevents overheating. With additional equipment it van be used whole year round.
