“Smart” Patio Cover

When I think of patio covers, I think of a small patch of shade that will be used a few times each summer. Solara’s patio covers do so much more than that, though. The biggest improvement is that you can open and close this cover much like window blinds. Each of the louvers can be angled (via remote control) anywhere from 130 degrees to completely shut at 0 degrees. It is also divided into two sections. While one section is open for grilling, the other can be closed for sitting. Solara’s patio covers are also made of recycled aluminum, making them easy to maintain.

I love the ability to angle the slats. Would this work on a deck? How would it attach to the wall?

How durable are the blinds?

Being that the blinds can open or close, what is the expected life of this product? Do they hold up to high winds, etc.?

I agree – the slats make it really versatile for all seasons.

I saw this demo almost two years ago and had forgotten about it. It is really cool and this time I need to do something about selling these.

Cool product!
