Shade, style and low-maintenance are essential elements in any outdoor living space. The latest offering from Trex® Pergola™, aptly named Element, combines all three in a sleek, modern pergola designed to maximize shade while offering the high-performance characteristics of an all-aluminum structure.
“As the first all-aluminum structure from Trex Pergola, Element provides a strong option for the multi-family and commercial markets, appealing to property owners and managers with its strength, durability and low-maintenance features,” said Andy Sears, vice president of Structureworks Fabrication, the exclusive manufacturer of Trex Pergola. “Decking contractors also appreciate the lightweight aluminum components and ease of assembly.”
Strong and Stylish
Element’s durable aluminum construction allows it to be installed in a variety of climates both warm and cold. In addition, Element is finished with an ultra-durable architectural coating, which offers superior weathering properties. This unique coating also expands the available color choices with 47 standard color options.
With 16 standard sizes, architects, builders and homeowners can create custom outdoor living spaces that reflect their unique design tastes and complement the surroundings.
Like all Trex Pergola models, Element is conveniently packaged as a complete kit that includes the required hardware and components – all pre-cut to exact sizes for quick, easy assembly. The Trex Pergola collection is covered by a 25-Year Limited Residential Warranty or a 10-Year Limited Commercial Warranty.
Made in the Shade
“As the concept of the ‘outdoor room’ continues to evolve and people spend more time outside, there’s a need for structures that provide greater comfort and shade,” Sears added. “Element’s wide overhead stringers are perfectly positioned to provide maximum coverage from the sun, for a shady, comfortable outdoor retreat any time of day.”
The average shade for Element models is approximately 68 percent coverage, while traditional pergolas typically offer coverage of 20-to-30 percent, making it an ideal solution for those who prefer more shade.
For even more comfort, Element can be enhanced with finishing touches such as ceiling fans and lighting, as well as accessories including Trex® Outdoor Furniture™ and Trex® Outdoor Kitchens™ cabinetry.
Trex Pergola Element and the complete portfolio of Trex outdoor living products will be on display during IBS in Booth #N1113. More information about Element can be found at www.trexpergola.com. To learn more about Trex, visit www.trex.com.
