The glass walls for pergolas are a fundamental accessory to enjoy the comfort of outdoor spaces under all weather conditions and in any season. Refined and discrete, these allow to extend the pergola’s functionalities, by imaging versatile uses which revolution the way of conceiving the spaces of the house, the workplace and the hospitality.

The glass perimeter protection makes it possible to reconsider the potentiality of your sunshade, by transforming it in a real open-air room, cosy and sheltered, where to benefit from the best immersivity in landscape and from the perfect panoramic view. An accessory making the difference, also with regard to privacy,  with glass pergolas of mirrored design (as the innovative Connect) that reflect the surrounded landscape on its surface, hiding at the same time the indoor space from the gazes coming from the outside, to enjoy your dehors in complete freedom.

1. Glazing for pergolas

The comfort offered by glass walls for pergolas is the result of a solid tempered glass polished edge structure with a thickness of 10 o 12 millimetres, offering not only shelter from rain, wind, dust and noise, but also guarantees an absolute transparency, which tears down the visual and architectural impact of the protection, to leave space only for the beauty of the panorama.

These features make glass pergolas ideal to create verandas, winter gardens and original outdoor rooms, which can be customised with a wide range of configurations and glass finishes.

Glass Series, engineered and developed by Pratic, allow you for example to choose among several processing for the panels:

  • transparent glazing for bright dehors, without any interruption between the indoors and the outdoors;
  • smoky grey and satinized glazing for an aesthetic and refined effect offering more privacy; 
  • mirrored glass walls of iconic design and privacy never experienced before. Thanks to the advanced technology Spy Glass, the pergola reflects in real time shapes and colours of the landscape, thus becoming active part and at the same time making the inside space inaccessible to the eye.

Not only, to meet the many aesthetic and use needs of every project, Pratic glazing for pergolas are feasible in three solutions:

  • fixed Glass (Fix Glass): perfect to create panoramic walls, protected by water seepage and draughts thanks to polycarbonate joints among panels guaranteeing insulation and aesthetic purity;
  • glazing with hinged (Door Glass): a solution of essential design, without any perimeter profile and freely configurable in single or double solution; both with or without fixed panel and with elegant accessories in satinized steel;
  • sliding glazing (Slide Glass 60): highly versatile, since they allow you to open and close the pergola’s space as you wish, through a discrete system of rails, either inferior or superior.

2. Sliding glazing

La possibilità di modulare in modo personalizzato il grado di protezione di ogni The possibility to custom-modulate the degree of protection of each space makes sliding glazing among the most popular options for pergolas and outdoor spaces.

In private spaces, these allow you to extend outwards, thus eliminating with a gesture all boundaries to merge with the outdoor horizon. In fact, each sliding glazing can move horizontally along the rails, overlapping the others, to determine different opening configurations.

A feature that is also particularly valuable for the hospitality industry, allowing bars, restaurants and hotels to set up comfortable open-air rooms to accomodate the guests at any time of the year. In this way, sliding outdoor glazing optimise the space of the local and at the same time enhance the location, thanks to the possibility of making the most of the views on suggestive urban or natural panoramas.

All this thanks to an outer profile customizable to match the pergola’s shade, to a structure with no visible screws and a retractable rail system that can be fully concealed within the flooring.

In case of uneven grounds, the same configuration can be also equipped with the platform Set, which integrates indissolubly into the pergola with sliding glass panel and allows any slope or unevenness of the ground to be solved. Thanks to its modular compensation system, indeed, the platform creates a completely flat surface, thus facilitating the installation of the covering as well as the mounting of sliding glass walls.
