Alba bioclimatic pergola: imagination and pragmatism
"Dawn has its own mysterious grandeur which consists of a residue of dream and of a principle of thought". These are the words of Victor Hugo that best describe Alba (Dawn in Italian), the motorized pergola with adjustable covering that is the union of imagination and pragmatism. Thanks to its light, compact and functional structure, Alba combines all the efficiency of a cutting-edge design with the refinement of a minimalist architecture and is equipped with the most innovative technical features. Like the aluminium sun-shade blades that can be adjusted by remote control to create the ideal climate inside the pergola. In fact, depending on the position of the blades it is possible to adjust the amount of incoming light and ventilation, and consequently the temperature of the environment within.
If the blades are inclined and half-closed they reflect the sun's rays upwards, creating a pattern of shade below and a measured passage of air that make Alba the perfect solution even for hot summer afternoons, to enjoy your outdoor space even when the sun is high in the sky. When placed at a maximum angle of 150°, the pergola electric roof opens completely to the light, creating an atmosphere that is a pleasant compromise between the indoors and outdoors. Indeed, with Alba inside and outside blend together like thoughts and dreams, like day and night.
Not a simple motorized pergola: Alba motorized pergola amazes every day
At night Alba lights up thanks to the LED lights that can be integrated into the blades, illuminating every situation with discretion and elegance. The adjustable intensity of the lighting complements the energy of every moment, colouring your sweet spring evenings with sparkling conviviality or soft intimacy. And when the first breeze of the season makes itself felt, simply adjust the opening of the blades and lower the side closure that completes the pergola on request for an even more effective protection against drafts and weather. In fact, vertical closures and sliding glass patio doors compatible with Alba are designed to protect the inside of the pergola even against intense rain and wind, being inserted into the structure without interfering with its clean lines. Only in this way can the outdoor space become a true expression of every creative idea, customisable in its furnishings, in the way it is used, even in its colours. In fact, like the other Corradi Bioclimatic pergolas, even Alba can be made with different shades, from the most classic to the most extravagant, conveying a tailored style that always makes it the protagonist of the surrounding environment, even in the original two-colour version.
Quality, flexibility and solidity in harmony
- Freestanding with four pillars
- Mounted on the façade with front or longitudinal pillars
- Integrated or fastened to existing structures
- Without vertical pillars, in the Alba Liberty version.
Alba's great versatility is confirmed by its technical and aesthetic characteristics, which make it ideal in all weather. In fact, Alba's blades are curved and designed to channel water toward the sides even when they are opened after a thunderstorm. When closed, they render Alba resistant to rain, which is drained through the gutters embedded in the pillars. But when the blades are fully raised they are visible for only 9.5 cm above the cover and do not interfere with the solidity and composure of its volume. The motor's protection case only slightly exceeds (by 13 cm) the total height of the structure.
Additionally, Alba has an anti-splash system that prevents water from bouncing back into the pergola during heavy rains.The corner cover (one of Alba's most distinctive features) contributes to the overall water tightness, thus ensuring high rain run-off performance, regardless of the size of the pergola.
In addition to the single module of 450 x 608 cm, Alba can in fact be coupled to reach up to 600 x 608 cm without intermediate pillars so it can be used in settings that require a very wide coverage, like foodservice areas and hotel terraces.
For larger dimensions (up to a total length of 20 linear metres), several modules can be placed side by side without doubling the pillar.
