Acubis by Solarlux convinces with technology, functionality and design
Shelter from the rain and create maximum freedom: with its delicate, reserved look, the Acubis flat canopy can blend in with any architectural style – especially those that use cubic shapes.
Its slender rafters lend the Acubis a discreet elegance, while its slim, all-round, 253-mm-high facing underscores its sophisticated character. The versatile system can be set up as a free-standing construction or integrated into the existing house architecture. “Traditional” patio roofing is just one of the many possibilities it offers. It is also suitable for use as a sheltered pergola, or to extend outdoor seating areas in the gastronomy industry.
The Acubis flat canopy raises the bar in terms of flexibility and potential scope of use. Vertical glazing can be added in the form of Solarlux sliding or slide-and-turn systems, turning the canopy into a glass house and incorporating its cuboid form into any environment as a separate room with almost invisible glazing. But it’s not just the shape that makes Acubis unique. It also comes with a range of sophisticated technical details, such as its barely perceptible two-degree roof pitch and the concealed gutters and downpipes for rainwater drainage.
The laminated safety glass used in the overhead areas is available in thicknesses of 8, 10 and 12 mm. The fully tested structural specifications offer peace of mind in extreme weather conditions, such as high wind and snow loads. Steel reinforcements can be inserted into the chambers of the bearing profiles to maximise the widths of the openings and supports. The variant with indented supports can be used to create sophisticated all-glass corners. Additional extras are also available to help you create that unique atmosphere, such as LED spotlights set into in the rafters and all around the facing. Bespoke shading options can be added to provide effective sun protection.
