The SMOOTH retractable pergola system provides a stylish architectural covering to allow large outdoor areas to be used in even the worst of weather conditions. The system offers a wind rating up to Beaufort class 11 (Up to 117km/h) and is designed to stand up to even the worst of weather conditions rain, hail or shine.
The system is manufactured to size using high grade 6063 extruded aluminium profiles finished with thermosetting powder coating which provides superior overall performance for exterior product applications. All bolts, screws and pins are high grade stainless steel to ensure extended system life.
The Smooth rafter profiles (110 x 160 mm) have been designed with unique Water Guard side channels and rafter profiles to allow for projections up to 10m per system. Widths are customised according to site requirements and available in any size up to 13m. The Smooth system offers up to 130sqm of protection at the touch of a button but when required linking multiple systems is also possible and made easy by our patented Storm Channel joining system that ensures 100% waterproof join every time. The Smooth system also includes an integrated gutter system with internal drainage to carry away even the heaviest rain.
Remote controlled motorisation is provided by utilising European technology (SOMFY) through a custom built direct drive motor system to ensure smooth and quick operation at 34RPM. The optional hi powered LED-TEC lighting system provides a practical touch of class and when coupled with a remote dimming controller allows the user to change the mood to suit the surrounding environment.
The heart of the system is driven by multiple Suntech F3 eight wheel slider carriages (Each F3 slider carriage has a load limit of 600kgs) that incorporates a triple layer barrier system and works in conjunction with a timing belt that has been reinforced with multiple internal stainless steel cables to provide a pulling strength of over 966kg. It’s this tension that is applied to the fabric membrane to allow an angle of 6 degrees fall possible and ensure all water drains away in the internal gutter system.
The German manufactured, fire rated and 100% waterproof architectural membrane fabric is available in a range of colours in both opaque and transparent that provides maximum stability and resistance to temperature, moisture and dirt. It does not shrink or bag, and the acrylic top coating makes it very easy to clean for years to come. When not in use the fabric is neatly retracted under the systems hood to provide protection from the elements when not required.
To ensure the highest level of protection Suntech systems focus on all the details, this is why all Suntech systems come standard finished with Stormguard Soft Touch edge seal on all parameters. Stormguard provides the ultimate protection against rain and draught intrusion around the outside of the system and is only available on our systems. Stormguards Soft Touch edge seal is produced from an extra soft & flexible rubber to ensure the best possible protection from the elements.
This extra attention to detail is what sets us apart from our competitors and is why we are at the forefront of our market worldwide.
