When it comes to patio covers, carports, and screened room enclosures, aluminum extrusions are the framing material of choice. Why? Because under the wettest conditions, 4K Pergola™ aluminum patio covers will not rust, corrode, or warp. They also require little or no maintenance. Because 4K aluminum is strong yet lightweight, 4K Pergola™ aluminum patio covers allow for greater design versatility and longer beam spans. Strong, Durable with wind speeds up to 120 MPH and a Lifetime Warranty.
4K Pergola™ products are the Material of Choice because it is strong, durable, and cost-effective. Our lattice tubes are so strong that they can span out to 20’ without any rafters, which means less time for installation. We can install 20’ x 20’ square feet on concrete without any footing using our strong 6” post x 3/16” thickness, and our beams are 2”x6” or 2”x8” x 1/8” wall thickness. This is very cost-efficient without digging any holes and waiting for concrete curing. 4K Pergola™ products are available in 5 colors, and the designs are modern, strong, and versatile. We can incorporate 4K Pergola™ with our 4K Pergo-Soleil™ panels for a creative and stunning design for your oasis.
4K Pergola™ products are extruded aluminum in aircraft alloy 6061 T6, and we have the best primer coat, gold chromate before powder coating, with the best 20-year warranty. This allows the paint to adhere properly for a much longer-lasting product against fading and chipping. Did you know that roll-formed material is very thin and must have a wood grain finish, and it cannot be a smooth finish? Some Suppliers do not have primer coats; therefore, the paint will fade and chip. The lattice tube is so thin at .024 thickness that it cannot span out 5ft without any rafters. This is why you see a rafter every 12” to 24”. Even their rafters and beams are roll-formed and very thin, sometimes they need to insert wood to provide the strength to support any architectural designs. Their posts are roll-formed material with .048 thickness and require an insert for support. Since all their products are roll-formed, they are not sturdy and can be easily deformed, like the gutter material.
What is an Aluminum extrusion?
-Aluminum extrusion is pushed through a specific die cross-section from a large press into specific shapes to be used for building materials. It is much stronger than roll forming.
What is an aircraft alloy?
Aircraft alloy is 6061 used for seating and internal components on an airplane. It is light yet very strong and durable.
What is 6063 alloy?
– 6063 is an architectural and building products alloy. Our lattices are extruded 6063 T6 since the high strength is not the most important factor. It is used for seats and internal components on airplanes. It is light yet very strong and durable.
