The Gennius T1 model retro-fits to an existing structure without post supports
T1 Gennius – The aluminum guide rails extend horizontally, supporting the fabric and keeping it sealed for water management when projected. This retractable pergola awning was specifically designed and engineered to handle inclement rain weather.
Capable of installing onto pergolas, between walls, under a trellis and more... the T1 has no posts, allowing you to be creative and flexible with attachment methods.
The T1 Gennius guide rail profiles are supported by integrated extruded aluminum structural rafter framework. If spanning an opening unsupported, the maximum projection for this Gennius is 21'. If attaching to an existing structure, the maximum projection of this Gennius model is 29'6" with a maximum width of 42'8". That's over 1,200 square feet of space covered with one motorized fabric roof!
Wind resistance guaranteed up to class 6 in accordance with UNI EN PR 13561. Integrated rain management technology along the guiderails seal water from spilling over the sides of the fabric cover forcing the water down the sealed fabric slope to the front of the system.
The Gennius system has a protective hood covering the fabric when in the retracted position. It is engineered with a special 7-layer aluminum panel that is rain drop quiet and unobtrusive. The waterproof, fire-retardant fabric protects from damaging and uncomfortable UV light and heat and keeps the rainwater off of the space it protects.
