The latest addition to the GENNIUS pergola awnings family, HYDRA stands out for its versatility. Available in different configurations, in the roof-only version, the wrapped fabric is completely enclosed within a box of new technical conception, which emphasizes its minimal aesthetics.

The integrated lighting on the guides and on the box completes the product, making the pergola usable even during the evening hours. Furthermore, it can be connected to a smartphone or other home automation devices for simplified product management.

In particular, the innovative Irisun Blockout fabric - exclusive to KE - the first non-PVC blackout fabric, which guarantees total shielding from sunrays.

HYDRA can be closed laterally and also frontally with the new box terminal applicable to the front profile, all without visible fixings, for an optimal aesthetic result.
