Bolzano: Best of Two Worlds

There are so many ways to provide shade. The shade part is easy -- it's finding the right design and aesthetic that really opens up a horizon of possibilities. Pergolas have a more dramatic, substantive look, echoing permanent construction and working to define a space visually. Retractable awnings provide shade when it's needed (and add color or texture) and then retract as weather and seasons change, to extend the longevity of the canopy.

The Bolzano lives in both worlds and brings out the best of both. It is typically wall-mounted (although there is also a freestanding option). Its elegant, minimalist frame is visible without being ostentatious. It evokes a stylistic response. The Bolzano integrates some of the best aspects of retractable awnings, with a retractable canopy for a balance of shade, light, and openness. Additionally, the Bolzano can have built-in front panels, either a guided shade or sliding glass panels, to create a feeling of protection and comfort. The integrated front panels and canopy can be retracted and create completely uninhibited views or extended and stopped at any point to provide the exact amount of shade. Optionally, vertical drop awnings can be installed on the sides for more protection and privacy.

The Bolzano has an aluminum frame which is intrinsically rust-resistant and handles changing weather and different climates with ease. The frame is powder-coated for crisp colors that resist fading and damage. Drainpipes and gutters are integrated into the front posts to effectively handle rain and runoff.

The canopy itself is a special PVC-based canvas, so it has the softness of fabric combined with the toughness of man-made materials. The fabric can either completely block lightor can be micro-perforated to allow in soft, filtered light.

As with all RetractableAwnings.com models, the details set the Bolzano apart for quality. The Bolzano components are designed and manufactured in Italy. There are accessories that can expand the usefulness (and beauty) of the Bolzano, such as LED lights integrated into the frame, integrated motors, and control sensors.
