Overview Of The Installation Process

The installation process for a Bioclimatic Pergola is a detailed procedure, and The Outdoor Living Group prides itself on ensuring every step is meticulously executed. Here’s a breakdown of our professional approach:


Preparing the Area

Before The Outdoor Living Group team begins any installation, we first ensure the designated area is primed and ready. Our experts ensure that the ground is both level and stable, capable of supporting the pergola structure. Our team also conducts a thorough check to ensure no obstructions could hinder the installation.


Assembling the Structure

With the area prepared, our specialists move to the assembly phase. The Bioclimatic Pergola structure, consisting of the posts and the perimeter frame, is methodically put together. Adhering strictly to the manufacturer’s guidelines, our team ensures the posts, beams, and rafters are interconnected seamlessly using the appropriate fasteners.


Installing the Blades

The Outdoor Living Group’s precision shines through in this phase. The blades, which can be oriented from 0 to 120 degrees, offer a waterproof cover once positioned correctly. Following manufacturer instructions to the letter, our professionals attach the blades to the main structure, ensuring optimal functionality and aesthetic appeal.


Connecting the Motor

The motor is an integral component of the Bioclimatic Pergola. Our team, well-versed in its installation, ensures that the motor is expertly connected to the control unit. Emphasis is placed on ensuring all connections are secure and robust, laying the groundwork for the pergola’s smooth operation.


Testing the System

Once the structure is in place, ensuring everything functions as it should is essential. The Outdoor Living Group professionals take this step seriously. We operate the control unit, ensuring the blades open and close seamlessly. Our team remains on site until we’re certain the system operates without a hitch, making necessary adjustments if required.

To ensure top-tier installation, The Outdoor Living Group comes equipped with all essential tools – from drills and ladders to safety glasses and gloves. Our team’s safety, and the integrity of your property, remain paramount throughout the process. Adhering to manufacturer’s guidelines and leveraging our extensive experience, we ensure every Bioclimatic Pergola installation is a testament to quality and professionalism.

Site Preparation for Bioclimatic Pergola Installation

Choosing the perfect location for a Bioclimatic Pergola involves multiple factors. First and foremost, it’s crucial to identify an area that enjoys ample sunlight. This positioning allows homeowners to adjust the pergola blades effectively, optimising comfort and ventilation.

While sunlight is essential, the location shouldn’t be overly exposed to robust winds. Excessive wind exposure might lead to potential structural damages, making sheltered spots a priority. Moreover, for an enhanced user experience, selecting a space offering a good degree of privacy is advisable, ensuring individuals can relax without feeling too exposed.

Prior to the installation, thorough site preparation is necessary. The designated area should be cleared of obstructions, including any furniture, plants, or debris. Ground levelling is critical, ensuring the pergola sits on a stable and flat surface. Additionally, checking for underground utilities is paramount to avoid unforeseen disruptions or damages.

A crucial aspect of the installation process is the foundation. Depending on the pergola type and ground conditions, a sturdy foundation, potentially involving a concrete base, might be required to guarantee the stability and longevity of the Bioclimatic Pergola.

Assembly and Mounting Options

The different assembly options available for Bioclimatic Pergolas are island, attached, wall-mounted, free-standing, and post-mounted.

  • Island: The island option is ideal for larger areas and provides more shade. It is also more aesthetically pleasing and can be used to create a focal point in the garden.
  • Attached: The attached option is better suited for smaller areas and provides more sun. It is also more practical and can be used to create a seamless transition between the house and the garden.
  • Wall-Mounted: Wall-mounted Bioclimatic Pergolas are attached to an existing wall or structure. This option is relatively easy to install and does not require any additional support structures. However, it can be difficult to adjust the angle of the Bioclimatic Pergola blades to maximise sun exposure.
  • Free-Standing: Free-standing Bioclimatic Pergolas are not attached to any existing structure and are instead supported by posts or columns. This option is ideal for creating a separate outdoor space or maximising sun exposure. It is relatively easy to adjust the angle of the Bioclimatic Pergola blades. However, it requires additional support structures, which can be more expensive and time-consuming to install.
  • Post-Mounted: Post-mounted Bioclimatic Pergolas are supported by posts that are mounted into the ground. This option provides stability and can be used in various settings.

Selecting the Right Mounting Option for Bioclimatic Pergolas

Homeowners’ preferences in the coverage area, sunlight, and shade greatly influence the choice of a Bioclimatic Pergola’s mounting option.

For those desiring ample shade over expansive spaces, the island option stands out as the best fit. It offers a vast shaded area and has a distinct aesthetic appeal. However, its sizable nature might not make it the most suitable choice for more compact areas.

The attached option becomes the prime choice for tighter spaces where more sunlight is desired. While it does bring in a generous amount of sunlight, one compromise might be a slightly reduced shade.

If you have an existing structure you want to augment with style, wall-mounted pergolas are your go-to. They are relatively straightforward to set up. But a possible downside is that their position, once fixed, might make it challenging to optimise sunlight angles.

Those envisioning a separate, distinct outdoor zone, or wanting to soak up maximum sunlight, should consider free-standing pergolas. Their chief advantage lies in the flexibility of adjusting blade angles. However, they do demand supplementary supporting structures.

The post-mounted pergolas offer commendable stability for those eyeing versatility across different settings. But this stability has a potential downside: they might be a tad more challenging to install and aren’t universally suitable.

Electrical System Installation

Before even a single wire is touched, The Outdoor Living Group professionals emphasise the importance of comprehensive planning. This stage is foundational to the installation process.

The team crafts a detailed layout by identifying power requirements, such as the number of required outlets and switches. The placement of each electrical component is thoughtfully considered, ensuring all adhere to stringent safety standards.
