Building pergolas

LINAK electric actuators help you create adjustable and automatic solar shading for you and your guests on a patio or at an outdoor café.


Actuator solutions for pergolas

As workloads increase and requests for maximum efficiency at work intensify, so does the demand for quality leisure time and relaxation when we are off. Using electric linear actuators to adjust your pergola and create shade has several advantages:

  • Clean and environmentally-friendly
  • Easy to install and maintenance free
  • Tested to cope with rough weather

Whether you are working on the patio or enjoying some free time outdoors, the option of adjusting a pergola to create shade or shelter for the occasional shower adds value to your outdoor room. LINAK actuator systems add to the ideal pergola solution for homeowners as well as owners of restaurants and cafes worldwide.

Stay clean and low on energy
Electric actuators emit no oil or exhaust gas. Being almost silent, guests will probably not notice them at all. LINAK actuators also have low energy consumption, leaving the smallest possible CO₂ footprint.

Lean back and forget about maintenance
A purely electrical solution has no hoses, pumps or compressors. This saves you the trouble of periodical maintenance – especially relevant as actuators are often located out of normal reach. LINAK actuators only need power and data cables connecting them to the control system. That is it! This makes them extremely easy to install and fit into almost any solar shading system – automated or remotely controlled.

Rely on durability for many years
LINAK actuators are thoroughly tested to ensure durability. This means a long lifetime and reliable performance regardless of weather conditions. Finally, the low-voltage setup makes solutions with LINAK actuators much safer for technicians as well as guests enjoying the shade under the pergola.
