The Equinox Roof is made from extruded aluminum and offers greater durability than traditional patio covers. Unlike plastic or fabric, metal components will outperform in heat and rain.
An innovative system of rotating gears drives the louvers into the perfect position for ventilation, sun blocking or rainfall protection.
- Wired Multi-Bay Control
With the flip of a switch, a convenient panel easily rotates the patio system louvers from fully opened to a solid roof in a matter of moments and adjust various bays. No matter what the degree of the sun, optimize every section of the patio.
- Remote Control
A single remote can control up to 6 channels (4 independent bays and other accessories, such as power outlets or lights, when available) Louvers can be positioned anywhere within their 160-degree range of motion
- Solar Battery
Drawing, storing and converting the sun’s energy, the battery cell powers the motor that rotates the louvers. The louvered roof needs no wiring and uses no power. It is both renewable and sustainable. The Equinox Louvered Roof solar battery is securely mounted in a discreet and sunny corner of your patio. Non-solar power systems are also available.
- Built-in Gutters
At installation, the louvered roof is precisely angled to ensure that rainwater flows into the gutters along the perimeter of the system. The hidden gutter system manages rainwater runoff with an integrated downspout.
- Customized columns and beams
- Designer fans and lighting systems
- Radiant heat and misting systems
