How do the Luxe Pergola louvers work?admin7772020-07-10T18:15:39+00:00
- The heavy duty extruded powder-coated aluminum Louvers fit between extruded aluminum 2×8 beams and are supported by extruded aluminum 6×6 posts.
- The Louvers are attached to ball bearing rollers that rotate the Louvers by use of a Remote Controlled Motor.
- The Louvers open and close with the push of a button. When the Louvers are closed they route water into the extruded gutters that are attached to the beams and down the inside of the 6×6 support posts. When the Louvers are open they allow through any amount of sunlight or shade that you desire.

- The Luxe Pergola louver is the only one made in the USA to have ball bearings at each end of the louver for less friction and longer life without the metal to metal squeaking you get with most other louver systems.
- The Luxe Pergola louver has and exclusive rubber gasket to help block out light and seal between the louvers.
- The Luxe Pergola post to beam connection is the strongest on the market, designed to attach a large portion of the post directly to the beam.
