Pratic presents its novelties

Pratic, the leading company in Italy in the design and manufacture of sunblinds, awnings and pergolas, participates at "Tende & Tecnica", the trade show held every two years and that will be taking place in Rimini from 7 to 10th October.
Pratic's exhibition, located in pavilion C7, Stand 155-160-161-166, includes many product novelties that confirm the constant research and development activity that the company, managed by brothers Dino and Edi Orioli, carries out in the outdoor sector. This is a continuously expanding sector that satisfies the desire to enjoy the outdoor spaces of one's home, not just in utmost comfort, but also with refined design solutions that make the most of the entire environment.

The stand, that has a unique and unmistakable style and, as in past editions, will not fail to make itself noticed, has been designed by Pratic in collaboration with the architect Gilberto Toneguzzi. Beautified by Moroso branded furniture, there will also be a space dedicated to Somfy, the international group specialised in control systems for the home, that has chosen Pratic to test a new transmission system for automatisms and motors using Io-Homecontrol technology.
The range of products exhibited consists in new ideas as well as the evolution of existing products. 

Tube, perfect with the Soft Lock patent - A vertical roller and cassette awning that runs on lateral steel wires. Born from the collaboration of Pratic Concept, Pratic’s laboratory of ideas, with the Italian School of Design, Art and Things of Padua, Ttube stands out for its minimal design that fits in naturally with any context. This awning is also a compendium of advantages and technology: with its Soft Lock patent, Pratic ensures perfect stability for the front, even on a windy day, because it is secured by a floor-fixing that is enhanced by the magnetic force of a magnet and by a compensating spring concealed inside it.

Vision, natural elegance - A new mark of style branded Pratic. Vision is an elegant sunbreaker to apply to the pergolas of the Tecnic Series. Made with steel or wooden louvres, this sun guard system stands out for its lightness and its natural appeal. Its "wings" open and shut in a simple and automatic way to obtain just the right, elegantly refracted, intensity of light. It is the ideal solution to create a pleasant protection from harsh sunlight without cutting out luminosity while beautifying the exterior of your home.

Slide, all the beauty of glass - The pureness and luminosity of glass in an enclosure that protects you like a door. Its name is Slide, it is composed of sliding panels and is a brand new Pratic product. The Slide enclosure is used together with the structures of the Tecnic series to transform an external portion of your home into a comfortable place all year long. Light penetrates unhindered and illuminates spaces without jeopardising visibility. 

Windy and WindySquare, protection and well-being all year long - Once again, beautiful and clever solutions create sheltered outdoor spaces without using permanent panels. This novelty by Pratic is called WindySquare and is an addition to the Windy line, the vertical awning that, just like a window, opens up onto outdoor spaces and shuts hermetically to protect from the wind and rain. In addition to these features, WindySquare has an even more compact cassonette to meet the growing space requirements of contemporary homes and becoming even more perfectly integrated with the pergolas of the Tecnic series.

Important novelties also for the prestigious Tecnic Series

TecnicLevel, evolved and resistant - Pratic designs its pergolas with everyday life in mind. This is how the best product innovations are born, as in the case of TecnicLevel - the functional evolution of the existing Alutecnic pergola that completes the Tecnic series - that satisfies every stylistic and structural requirement: a feature peculiar to TecnicLevel is the new, 12x6 cross-section of the profile that is aesthetically elegant while maintaining the solidity it has always had. The gutter disappears and becomes an integral part of the structure. The end result is that of product that is even easier to install and that has remarkable durability features. 

TecnicWood Plus, a natural beauty - The refined TecnicWood, a wooden pergola made from laminated pinewood, is now available in the Plus version. Technical innovation above all: the rain gutter is fitted between the uprights to give an even cleaner appearance and optimise water drainage thanks to the floor-drain. From an aesthetic viewpoint, TecnicWood Plus maintains its refined qualities and adapts perfectly to the bordering enclosures. 

TecnicMito, the mark of perfection - A pleated pergola blind that is a perfect example of Made in Italy design enlivened by an equally perfect structure that is made to last. The modern style of TecnicMito makes it suitable for private homes as well as for furnishing public places. It protects from the sun, wind and rain and is made entirely from aluminium and steel. 

TecnicStil, design in movement - The dynamic and modern asymmetry of TecnicStil makes it really different from any other. Just like the other models of the Tecnic series, TecnicStil can be customised by choosing the colour that best integrates it with the outdoor decor from the vast Pratic range.

For all its pergolas Pratic uses aluminium load-bearing structures available in a vast range of colours and only stainless steel components as well as Somfy motorisations and automatisms.
