At SYZYGY Global, we take immense pride in our expertise in designing the most elegant and innovative outdoor living spaces in South Florida. Whether we’re crafting a luxurious covered patio for a seaside estate or creating a business-enhancing covered outdoor dining space for a local restaurant or country club, our pergolas are built to last a lifetime. They are also some of the most architecturally appealing outdoor structures on the market. While our inspired design team is responsible for envisioning these grand designs, it’s our manufacturing partners at Azenco that turn those drawings into precision-crafted reality.
With a longstanding leadership role in South Florida's outdoor living market, we have extensively evaluated numerous pergola manufacturers and their offerings. Without a doubt, Azenco’s pergolas deliver the highest quality, most innovative functionality, and the utmost precision in manufacturing. In this article, we'll explore what separates Azenco pergolas apart from their competitors.
Since its establishment in 1996, Azenco has continuously redefined the pergola market over its 27-year journey. Company founder, Charles Chapus, has spearheaded numerous industry innovations, amassing an impressive collection of 30+ patents for the company's designs. Originating in Europe, Azenco's influence expanded to the US market in 2017, bringing the refined aesthetics of European design to the Americas.
The company’s manufacturing facility in Miami, Florida, serves as a testament to precision craftsmanship. By leveraging best-in-class machining processes, Azenco manufactures the highest-quality aluminum pergolas in single extrusions, ensuring a seamless construction that minimizes potential leakage. Being headquartered in South Florida also ensures that our projects can be completed as quickly as possible.
While the market boasts several motorized louvered roof pergolas, none quite capture the sophistication and build quality of the Azenco R-Blade motorized adjustable louvered roof design. When exploring custom pergolas, it's essential to identify key attributes that differentiate brands. Here, we highlight the distinctive features that elevate Azenco's pergolas:
Although the louvers for differing adjustable pergolas may appear similar from a distance, a closer inspection reveals significant differences that significantly impact the success of your custom pergola project. Many competing designs feature basic single-wall louver profiles, fabricated from a single aluminum sheet. Over time, these thin louvers tend to sag and can even warp due to the stresses of motorized operation. Their limited thickness reduces the achievable span of the pergola size—typically around 10 to 12 feet. Azenco's approach diverges with a unique dual-walled louver design that enables spans up to 15 feet in length. This innovation not only extends the span but also bolsters the insulating properties, effectively reflecting heat away from the patio.
Another distinctive aspect of Azenco's R-Blade design involves extending the louvers into the surrounding pergola roof frame—an exceptional feature absent in competing products. Observing other louvered roof pergolas, one may notice gaps between louver ends and the frame, allowing light (and rainwater) to infiltrate. Azenco's extended louver design, coupled with precision dual-walled louvers, achieves a secure seal against both sunlight and rain, shielding your patio from South Florida's occasional afternoon showers.
One of Azenco R-Blade's hidden design elements lies within the louver motors themselves—an aspect not immediately visible. Electric motors are pivotal in adjusting louver openings for motorized adjustable louvered pergola roofs. Most competitor products rely on a single motor to adjust the entire roof. Unfortunately, over time, the torque applied to one end of the louvers can cause them to warp, resulting in leaks, especially with thin single-walled louvers that are commonly used. Azenco, on the other hand, incorporates dual motors to balance out the torque. When combined with its durable dual-walled louver design, the roof of an R-Blade pergola will never warp.
Azenco's commitment to aesthetic refinement extends to the assembly process, with all their pergolas meticulously designed for seamless integration. Unlike other options that rely on visible external bolts or rivets to connect pergola frame corners at the top of columns, these exposed fasteners inherently give the structure a raw industrial look. Azenco's R-Blade, on the other hand, embraces an assembly devoid of visible hardware. This meticulous attention to detail ensures a sleek exterior appearance, harmoniously blending the pergola with the existing architectural style of your home—even when the pergola is added as an extension.
The addition of a modern motorized aluminum pergola instantly transforms your outdoor living space into a year-round haven. However, all louvered roof pergolas are far from equal. When seeking a pergola contractor in South Florida, rest assured that Azenco offers the pinnacle of pergola excellence, surpassing other alternatives in the market.
