A slat roof as a patio roof?

If you are looking for an alternative to traditional sun protection systems for your outdoor area, a modern pergola is an innovative alternative for covering a terrace or an outdoor area near the pool or garden. 

Louvered roofs offer you protection from the weather:

A high-quality roof with aluminum slats withstands wind forces up to Beaufort class 11, ie gale force winds of 103 to 117 km/h.

snow load
The roof load averages 400 kg/m2, which corresponds to two meters of snow or 80 cm of very wet snow. Depending on how the seat is used, the slats can be open in winter.


The seal between the slats and the special shape of the slats ensure that the slatted roof is waterproof and rainwater is drained off effectively.

Don’t the slats take away too much light?

When closed, i.e. when protected from wind and rain, the slats do not let any light through.

Is a pergola roof waterproof?

A slatted roof is naturally airtight when the slats are closed. The rain is drained off to the side through the drainage channels integrated into the slats.

Are the slats retractable?

Yes, for model Azetorra 4 and Luxaterra you can slide the slats to the side. You can open the roof and have a clear view of the sky. A pack of slats stays on the side or back of the house wall. You decide which part of your terrace should be in the shade.

Aluminum slat roofs are a popular choice for patios, gardens and covered areas because they are durable, sturdy and easy to maintain. They are made of aluminum profiles joined in a lamellar shape to cover a large area. The slats can be adjusted at different angles of inclination to match the position of the sun and lighting needs. They are also available in a variety of colors and styles to add visual appeal to any building.

What are slat roofs?

An aluminum louvered roof is a roof made of aluminum that consists of many louvers that can be opened and closed. It is often used to regulate rain and sunlight and can also be used as a design element. There are different types of louvered roofs, such as manually operated or motorized louvered roofs.

Why are lamella roofs used?

Louvered roofs are used to let sunlight into buildings while providing protection from direct sunlight and heat. They consist of parallel slats that can be opened and closed to regulate the desired amount of light and shade inside the building. Louvered roofs also make it possible to reduce energy consumption by regulating natural lighting.

Types lamella roofs

There are different types of slat roofs, depending on the application and design. Some examples are:

  • Horizontal slat roofs: These consist of parallel slats that can be opened and closed in the horizontal direction. They are particularly suitable for large buildings and are usually very robust and durable.

  • Vertical lamella roofs: These consist of lamellas that can be opened and closed in a vertical direction. They are particularly suitable for smaller buildings and terrace roofing and provide good protection from direct sunlight.

  • Combined slat roofs: these consist of a combination of horizontal and vertical slats and make it possible to regulate both the intensity of light and the heat load inside the building.

  • Motorized slat roofs: These slat roofs are controlled by a motor and allow the slats to be opened and closed by remote control or smartphone app.

  • Sliding slat roofs: the slats are opened and closed by sliding, they are usually easier to use, but not as flexible as the motorized slat roofs.

Materials for lamella roofs

Louvered roofs can be made of different materials, depending on the application and desired design. Some examples are:

  • Aluminum: Aluminum is a very strong and durable material, which is very suitable for the production of slat roofs. It is lightweight, corrosion resistant and can be powder coated in many different colors.

  • Steel: Steel is a very stable and robust material, which is also very suitable for the production of lamella roofs. However, it is heavier than aluminum and can rust if not properly cared for.

  • Wood: Wood is a natural material, which is very suitable for the production of slat roofs. It is lightweight and provides comfortable thermal insulation. However, it requires regular care and protective treatments against moisture and pests.

  • Plastic: Plastics such as polycarbonate or acrylic are very light and durable and are suitable for the manufacture of patio roofs. They are UV resistant and can be produced in many colors and degrees of transparency.

  • Glass: Glass is a very elegant and durable material and is particularly suitable for the production of patio roofs in combination with aluminum or steel. It provides good exposure and an unobstructed view of the sky, but it can also be very expensive and it can be difficult to clean.

Design options of lamellar roofs

Louvered roofs come in a variety of designs and options. Here are some examples:

  1. Simple slats: This is the most common option for louvered roofs. The slats are arranged in a simple parallel arrangement and can be set manually or automatically.

  2. Wave Shape Louvers: These slats have an undulating shape that provides better ventilation and a more interesting appearance.

  3. Adjustable slats: These slats can be adjusted at different angles to control light transmission and ventilation.

  4. Slats with green roof: these slats are planted with plants and provide both shade and natural ventilation.

  5. Slats made of different materials: slat roofs can be made of different materials, such as wood, aluminum or steel, which have different visual and functional properties, depending on the requirements.

Colors and finishes

Louvered roofs come in many colors and finishes, which can vary depending on the material and manufacturer. Some examples are:

  1. Powder coatings: This type of surface treatment makes it possible to produce slat roofs in a wide range of colors and textures. It also provides some protection against weathering and corrosion.

  2. Anodizing: This is a process in which the surface of aluminum fins is changed by electrolytic oxidation. It provides some protection against corrosion and allows the slats to be made in different colors and textures.

  3. Wood finish: different colors and surface treatments can be used for slats made of wood, such as glazes, oils or stains to emphasize the natural appearance of the wood.

  4. Metallic effects: Some manufacturers offer slats in various metallic effect colors, such as copper, brass or bronze.

  5. Special designs: There is also the possibility to produce slat roofs in special designs, e.g. with own color or graphic designs or with integrated LED lighting.

Advantages of lamella roofs

Louvered roofs offer some advantages, such as:

  • Regulation of light incidence: slats can be opened or closed to control the incidence of light, allowing natural lighting of the interior.
  • Heat and cold protection: louvered roofs can be opened to dissipate heat in summer and closed to retain heat in winter.
  • Protection from rain and snow: slatted roofs can be closed to protect the interior from rain and snow.
  • Enhancing architecture: Louvered roofs can be an attractive design element and enhance the architecture of a building.
  • Increasing flexibility: slat roofs allow to adjust the interior to different requirements and weather conditions.

Disadvantages of lamellar roofs

Louvered roofs also have some disadvantages, such as:

  • High cost: slat roofs are usually more expensive than conventional roofs, mainly because of the necessary mechanics and electronics.
  • Maintenance requirements: Louvered roofs require regular maintenance and inspection to ensure they are functioning properly and are not damaged.
  • Sensitivity to weather conditions: Slats can be damaged by strong winds, rain and snow.
  • Noise: Louvered roofs can be noisy in high winds or rain.
  • Space requirements: Louvered roofs often require additional space to open and close, which can cause problems in some cases.

Recommendations for the selection and use of slat roofs.

Recommendations for the selection and use of slat roofs can be as follows:

  • Consider your specific requirements: Before selecting a louvered roof, consider your specific roof requirements, such as the number of louvers, the size of the roof, the amount of light you want, weather conditions and the type of building.
  • Choose a high quality manufacturer: choose a manufacturer that produces high quality slat roofs that are durable and long lasting.
  • Consider maintenance costs: consider the maintenance costs associated with a louvered roof and make sure you can support those costs.
  • Pay attention to the warranty: choose a slat roof with a proper warranty to ensure that it can be replaced or repaired in case of problems.
  • Consider the environmental conditions: Consider the environmental conditions of the building where the louvered roof is to be installed to ensure it is suitable for those conditions.
  • Consult with experts: consult with experts, such as architects or roofers, before selecting a louvered roof to ensure it is the best choice for your needs.
