Add a chic, sharp architectural look to your outdoors with our hardy Aluminium Pergola - now available in Matte Grey! The adjustable, hand-cranked louvres are a practical way to let in as much or as little sun as you like, and if the rain starts up you can close the slats completely for shelter. Four seasons in one day? No worries.
Because at Container Door...the party....must always go on!
The closed louvres are not only waterproof during showers, they can even withstand up to 15cm of snow for those nude alpine BBQs you're so fond of. The centre beam, which sits slightly higher than the others, drains water down through the legs rather than pouring it over the sides, so you won't have to fear any unexpected deluges from on high, either.
With tough aluminium construction, and galvanised fasteners, this is a rust-proof structure that's going to bring you a lot more use of your pool area, garden, balcony or patio no matter what the weather-person is guesstimating. Party on, indeed!
AND READ WHAT SOME OF OUR HAPPY CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY:
"Love our pergola so much we bought a second one for our other deck. Keep up the good work. Love your stuff." - Marg
"Love my pergola! Only challenge was fixing it to paving...would have shattered the pavers on the corners so my wonderful paving people (who also put up the louvres) created some brackets to attach to the fence and used only one screw into paver and concrete for each leg of the pergola. But looks great!!!!" - Edwina
"Hey Container Door Team, the Aluminium Pergola went up easily and looks great! Good solid product, everyone that comes around is surprised by how cheap it was and how good it looks. It'd be great if you did accessories like blinds or louvres for the sides. Thanks Container Door, keep up the great work!" - Ben M
AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE WIND:
We recommend that you leave the louvres in the OPEN position when the pergola is not in use. The closed louvres act a bit like an umbrella catching gusts, so it’s safer to let the wind blow through rather than exert force on the structure.

INSTALLATION AND SAFETY TIPS
Firstly, we do recommend that you have your pergola professionally installed, simply because it is a large beast. However, some keen DIYers are choosing to install it themselves. Please do not attempt this unless you are very experienced with this kind of structure.
It’s important to know that the screws we supply for the base plates (16 galvanised coach screws, 8mm x 75mm) are only suitable for fixing into wooden deck joists and, for your safety (and everyone else’s), you will need to achieve an embedment of at least 70mm.
However, these screws will not be sufficient if you are locating the pergola in an exposed position that experiences wind gusts. These screws
are intended for use in a sheltered domestic back-yard-type situation only.
If you are installing your pergola in an exposed or wind-prone area, or are installing into a non-wooden surface such as concrete or stone, we again recommend getting professional assistance. You will also need to obtain suitable fixtures (not provided).
