Gennius T1 can be retrofitted to an existing pergola

Your Pergola looks beautiful; now make it functional

The Gennius T1 model retro-fits to an existing structure.

T1 Gennius – No posts.  Its aluminum guide rails extend horizontally, supporting the fabric and keeping it tight when projected.  This retractable pergola awning isn’t just heavy-duty enough to handle inclement weather… it was specifically designed for it!


Capable of installing onto pergolas, between walls, under a trellis and more… the T1 has no posts, allowing you to be creative and flexible with attachment methods.

The T1 Gennius guide rail profiles are supported by integrated extruded aluminum  structural rafter framework.   If spanning an opening unsupported, the maximum projection for this Gennius is 21′.  If attaching to an existing structure the maximum projection of this Gennius model is 29’6″, with and maximum width of 42’8″.  That’s over 1,200 square feet of space covered with one motorized fabric roof!


Wind resistance guaranteed up to class 6 in accordance with UNI EN PR 13561.  Integrated rain management technology captures rainfall and routes it into its gutter and  down the front support posts.

The Gennius has a protective hood covering the fabric when in the retracted position.  It is engineered with  a special 7-layer aluminum panel that is rain drop quiet, and unobtrusive.  The waterproof, fire-retardant fabric protects from  damaging and uncomfortable UV light and heat,  keeps the rainwater off of the space it protects.
