ZANARA

ZANARA
"Trend-setting design in its perfect form"

The avant-garde shape of the Zenara makes it the designer awning among all awnings and shades. On modern houses, this cassette awning engages in harmonious dialogue with the facade, while on older buildings it provides a tantalising contrast.

With its numerous innovations, the Zenara is also a true avant-gardist in engineering terms.

“The flexible folding roof with a convertible feel”

The Ark PergoTex flexible folding roof converts a patio or terrace into a stunning outdoor living room with Mediterranean flair. When open, it lets you enjoy the full benefit of the sun, when closed, it provides light and UV protection. And as rain protection, it even resists a down-pour (from a pitch of 8° or higher). Tried and tested etractable roof technology provides a maximum degree of wind resistance. The elegant PergoTex protects against sun, wind and rain. It is trans-formed into a stunning outdoor living room when equipped with vertical awnings or all-glass elements. You can extend and retract the tear-resistant, light-resistant and water-resistant PVC awning fabric with ease – for maximum pleasure and comfort. The tear-resistant PVC of the PergoTex is fastened to robust aluminium transoms. This combination withstands wind strengths up to 8 (Beaufort) – even when the folding roof is extended. The fabric and technology rest under a special protective safety shield when the folding roof is fully extended. Thus they are protected from moisture and dirt. Expansion and retrofitting can be easily accomplished in the modular Plaza Pro system: Smart components provide vertical protection against wind and sunlight, for light and warmth. The PergoTex is ideally suited to private homes, restaurants, hotels, offices and many other commercial properties.
