How Do Arcadia Pergolas Stack-Up Against the Competition?

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery – and Arcadia aluminum louvered pergolas are no exception. Impersonators are coming out of the woodwork, increasing in number year-after-year as the Arcadia line continues to shine. What do competitors have to offer, and how do Arcadia pergolas stack-up against the competition?  Turns out, it’s no-contest.


Looking for Flexibility?

Arcadia remains the only louvered pergola model providing 170-degrees of pivot flexibility, providing not only shelter from the rain, but allowing you to dial-in just the right amount of light, no matter the direction of the sun. Ranging from 100 to 145-degrees of rotation, the flexibility of copycats doesn’t even come close.


Looking for Durability?

Only the Arcadia features a strong, totally extruded aluminum composition, enhanced with powder coating from the world’s leading power coat manufacturer, AkzoNobel, for added protection against the elements. Capable of holding up to salty seaside environments, chlorine, sun, and rain, this specially formulated coating not only protects the pergola from oxidation and corrosion, it also reflects solar radiation, reducing heat buildup in and around your outdoor living space.


Looking for Ease-of-Use?

The Arcadia is the sole provider of high-tech, mobile-device-driven pergola operation as well as remote control, solar-powered, and manual options. It is also the only pergola provider offering weather-responsive operation via optional wind and rain motor control sensors. Open and close remotely, by time, or pre-set positions, or automatically managing rain and wind in your absence. Exceptionally quiet, our American-made CE and UL certified motors are maintenance-free and built to stand-up to the harshest outdoor environments.

Looking for Protection?

Specifically engineered to withstand hurricane force winds, support heavy snow loads, and masterfully handle rain, the interlocking louvers of the Arcadia offer the ultimate in precipitation protection. More rain tight than competitors, it is the first pergola to develop and integrate a multi-zone-compatible gutter system, incorporating the frame in creating a pass-through gutter system. Perfectly pitched, the construction of the Arcadia enhances water flow from the louvers to the gutters, preventing back-ups and seepage between slats – an area where our competitors, quite plainly, fail. Just one of the reasons the Arcadia is the outdoor shelter of choice for restaurants, hotels, resorts and country clubs where patron comfort is integral to a bustling business.

Looking for Customizability?

Arcadia is available in custom colors, including faux wood wrap. Add corbel ends or faux columns for style; fans, recessed lighting, and motorized screens for functionality; or curtains for privacy. It can be installed attached or detached, in an amazing number of variations and sizes, and is even lightweight enough for rooftop and balcony additions.

Enjoy Your Outdoor Living Space More… With An Adjustable Louvered Pergola!

Do you have an under-used, uncovered patio that is either too hot when you want to use it, or gets too much rain or snow to be functional? The Adjustable Louvered Pergola System has you covered – or uncovered! Unlike a retractable awning or wooden structure with fixed slats that give partial shade, but no rain protection, this aluminum pergola system can offer full sun, partial to full shade, or shelter thanks to its ingeniously designed adjustable louvered roof system.
