One of Pratic’s distinctive features is undoubtedly its ability to meaningfully engage with the principles of architecture. Incorporating a pergola or an awning system in a project is a crucial step in building design, given the technical characteristics required by the outdoor environment and the variety of solutions that can be adopted.
Pratic’s skilled staff is in constant contact with architects and designers, providing prompt information, technical advice, general catalogues and product monographs. Similarly, the company’s technical experts can give valuable input, identifying all the features and adjustments necessary for production excellence, in terms both of the final result and rationalisation of costs.
Pratic can provide design pergolas and awnings custom-made down to the smallest detail. Our covers are never just accessory elements, they are integral parts of the design concept, both for private homes and the contract market for hotels, resorts, restaurants and public places in general.
Flexibility is a big plus for designers and architects who rely on Pratic. From the colour of the structure – now fully customisable – to the material to be used for the top or side cover; from optional extras such as lighting, side shields and windows to home automation systems, protecting the building even when there is no one at home; from certified platforms providing a perfectly level surface for your pergola to general consulting for establishing the times and methods of execution.
Maximum care is given even to samples and presentation materials, which are designed so that professionals can work with elements that are aesthetically valuable but always practical. You can also choose the digital versions of each design tool available on pratic.it. Every year Pratic organises an event called Architect Day – training days that provide a comprehensive overview of the pergola and awning solutions created by Pratic.
The courses are organised by company experts and include classroom sessions and a visit to the technical and production areas of the company headquarters. A delightful end to the proceedings allows guests to enjoy the natural beauty of the local area.
Pratic, a supreme expression of Italian creativity, was founded in Ceresetto, a town in the rolling hills of Italy’s north eastern province of Udine in 1960.
The principle of excellence is also expressed at Pratic’s headquarters – an internationally celebrated example of industrial architecture that has won major design awards.
In 2018 Pratic created a cutting-edge coating facility, giving the market the opportunity to create outdoor furnishing projects of any size and in any colour.
Colour is an essential element in the design of architectural spaces. We have dedicated investments and research to the theme of the use of colour.
In 2018, a collaborative venture with IULM – University of Languages and Communication of Milan, and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, gave rise to the first neuroscience study organised by Pratic
