In half a century the company succeeded in deeply changing the concept of living outdoor spaces. Technology, innovation and quality as the linchpin of any project that rises and realises entirely within the headquarters in North-Eastern Italy
STUTTGARD (GERMANY) FEBRUARY, 28TH - MARCH, 3RD 2012 - Pratic, an Italian company among the first ones in the field of awnings, pergolas and solutions for the outdoor living, takes part to the R+T fair and presents its news.
PRATIC CHANGES THE CONCEPT OF OUTDOOR SPACE
The 200-square metre-wide show area conceived by the architect Gilberto Toneguzzi instantly expresses Pratic’s innovative nature. Since 1960, the company is designing and producing exclusively in its seat near Udine, north-eastern Italy, inspired by technology, innovation and quality. And today also by sustainability, achieved through renewable energy: the new headquarters are an example of industrial architecture celebrated by the world’s main design magazines.
In half a century, Pratic created a true culture of living outdoor space. A revolution that, through innovative realisations, patents and a constant look at the future, has altered the way houses are conceived from the scratch. Thanks to companies like Pratic, gardens and terraces are today a natural extension of our house, whose areas become bigger, brighter and more enjoyable all year long.
UNIQUE FOR DESIGN AND INNOVATION: HERE THE NEWS BY PRATIC
OUR NEW AWNINGS
Musa Awning - It is the new integral closing awning equipped with cassette that joins Ellisse, thus enriching the “cassetted” selection by Pratic. Musa shows a winning design and has been realised with top quality materials: perfect for your outdoor areas. Not only does the integral closing entirely protect the sheet when this is rolled up, but it gives a refined touch even if the awning is closed. Technologically speaking, Musa awning has been designed to ensure topmost structural performance and to allow a simple and quick slope regulation.
T-line awning - T-line is the new revolutionary vertical roller awning with cassette whose sheet slides on steel side cables. As an essence of design and technology, T-line is the first awning to use the Magnetic Lock System, the exclusive hook system with European patent that ensures maximum stability. It gives its best when the wind swells the sheet, thus causing the front element to disengage from its seat. By using the magnetic force of its magnet, it helps the frontal element getting nearer the cushioning telescopic system, until total engage is newly reached.
Ellisse awning - One of the most representative and glamorous awnings of Pratic’s selection will be at R+T renewed in its form and functions, and with a new system for an easy and quick slope regulation. A masterpiece of elegance with higher structural performances that adds up to the important test carried out in the wind gallery by Pininfarina.
THE NEW STRUCTURES
TecnicReverse structure -TecnicReverse is a self-supporting structure that shelters up to 50 Sq. Metres. TecnicReverse becomes thus the ideal solution for gardens, as well as for public and contract areas. Completely in aluminium with stainless steel components, it is available with 4 or 6 pillars. Unmistakable the design by Pratic, who took care of every technical and aesthetic detail: gutter and downspout are integral part of the structure and offer great functionality without altering its plain appearance. It is possible to complement Tecnic Reverse with the perimeter glass panels Tecnic Slide.
Sail is one of the new symbols of innovation and technology by Pratic: a unique sail-shaped structure, inspired by the materials and shapes used in sailing. This structure can be easily and flexibly installed in any context with the desired dimensions. All this is possible thanks to a device that allows perfect stretching of the sheet. Sail will be presented in its new colour corten, the ultimate touch for a neat project enriched by top quality materials. Exclusive project and design by Pratic.
THE NEW PERGOLAS
TecnicRam - An innovation in the world of pergolas as well as in the selection by Pratic. TecnicRam is a pergola characterised by the curved guide profiles. The result is an aesthetically enjoyable solution with a rounded and smooth silhouette. Quality always bears Pratic’s signature: aluminium structure, Tecnic cover, waterproof and fireproof screen sheet.
TecnicEvo - Precious and elegant pergola that offers shelter from sun and wind thanks to a solid structure allowing an extension up to 9 metres. TecnicEvo integrates naturally in any living context thanks to a graceful and refined design that enhances neatness of lines and confers a specific stylistic character to the building.
TecnicWood Plus - The refined TecnicWood, a pergola in lamellar pinewood, is presented also in the Plus version. Tecnic innovation on top: the aluminium downspout intermixed with the wooden pillars optimizes water draining and confers further aesthetical neatness, combining together functionality and elegance for those who love both natural materials and the convenience of aluminium. The wooden structure is available in its standard mahogany finishing and, upon request, with autoclave impregnated Brenner walnut and dark green.
