When you want to provide your customers a high level of comfort as well as a controlled atmosphere in an outdoor setting, a Vergola louvred open/close roofing system is the most perfect solution. A Vergola roof is guaranteed to enhance your customers’ experience while they enjoy your business in total comfort. Several cafes, restaurants, sporting facilities, golf clubs, resorts, children’s playgrounds, hospitals and theme parks among many more have installed Vergola’s unique roofing systems on their premises.

Vergola - the original open close roof system

Vergola louvre roof systems are not only tried and tested successfully in hundreds of applications, but have also received recognition from peers as well as industry bodies. Vergola has received Industrial Design Council of Australia’s ‘Prince Philip Prize for Australian Design’ as well as three Australian Design Council awards for innovation.

Vergola combines good design and expertise with superior materials to provide a high performance roof louvre system for commercial premises. Unlike other companies that manufacture their open/close roof systems using the much cheaper aluminium, Vergola uses BlueScope Steel’s Colorbond, which is made in Australia, and complies with the Australian building standard AS2728. Colorbond is the material that builders prefer to use for roofing in most new Australian homes and in over 80 per cent of all gutters and fascias.

Vergola is a superior choice for your outdoor spaces because it is made from Colorbond Zincalume steel with a coating of aluminium/zinc/magnesium alloy; the surface of the steel is covered by a conversion layer to improve adhesion; the louvre roof maintains its ‘new’ look for far longer due to Colorbond Super Polyester coating technology; and louvres resist cracking, chipping and peeling due to exterior grade paint baked onto the surface.

Commercial louvre installation

Vergola has honed their skills in louvre roof installation for commercial environments over a 30-year period. Vergola’s aerofoil louvres have two skins, which allow superior insulation via air pockets to keep customers cooler in summer and warmer in winter – aluminium systems only have single skin louvres.

If you are running an outdoor cafe, bistro or restaurant, a Vergola will help you control the outdoor space: you can provide your customers the comfort of shade in summer or plenty of natural light and warmth in winter, ensuring your establishment remains open for business all year round.

Vergola designs

The highly versatile Vergola system can be constructed to any design or style – choose from raked, flat or gabled roofs with many bays or a single one that covers large or small spaces. Perfect for restaurants, cafes or commercial buildings that require adequate ventilation and continuous inflow of fresh air, a Vergola can create a comfortable, energy-efficient and safe working environment for your business.

A Vergola can be remotely operated using the automated control unit – up to eight bays can be controlled automatically and individually. Even the fire alarm system can be connected to a Vergola.

Vergola roof systems come with a two-year warranty on manufactured parts and service, and a seven-year guarantee on structural components. For Vergola (NSW) customers, Bluescope Steel offers an extra guarantee on all Colorbond products.
