Pratic challenge against wind began in 1994. Since then, the company had been focusing systematically on finding solutions concerning the safety of awnings in case of wind and, in 2006, it voluntarily submitted its awnings Flex, Ellisse and the Tecnic system to tests in the Pininfarina Wind tunnel.
The company obtained a double result: it was demonstrated that Flex and Ellisse awnings can stand, without showing any problem, a maximum wind speed of approximately 70 km/h* corresponding, on the Beaufort scale, to level 8 out of 10, which can be compared to the strength of Storm; and that the Tecnic system is able to stand a speed up to 90 km/h*.
Pratic will not stop to search for perfection for its products. Perhaps it’s exactly this attitude, more than anything else, that conveys the real extent of the reliability of Pratic company and its products.
