What customer say about Equinox Louvered Roofs

“We love to entertain, but our patio was too hot in the summer. My wife wanted an open arbor while I preferred the closed type. Equinox gives us the best of both worlds. We plan to enjoy it a long, long time.”

– Florida Homeowner

“Our Equinox system is the best investment I’ve put into my home, the one that has the most value to me.”

Arizona homeowner

“We close it when it rains, go outside and experience the rainfall. The gutter system is fabulous; there’s never any water on our porch. Equinox delivers the quality it promised.”

Wisconsin homeowner

“We never really enjoyed our backyard until we got an Equinox. The tables and umbrellas around our pool were always hot, and we didn’t have enough shade. Now, groups of people don’t have to squeeze under an umbrella, and we adjust our Equinox roof as the sun moves during the day.”

North Carolina homeowner

“We wanted a system that would give us both light and shade. Our Equinox adds another room to our house and gives us options we didn’t have before. We’re delighted how Equinox has expanded our space and lets us enjoy the outdoors.”

California homeowners

What are the benefits of an Equinox Louvered Roof?

Equinox Louvered Roofs allow homeowners and businesses to maximize the comfort and functionality of their outdoor living spaces. The adjustable roof louvers provide the exact amount of weather protection and ventilation needed at any time of day or season.

With a touch of a button, the louvers can be opened for full sun, partially closed to filter shade, and fully closed to create waterproof cover that protects against rain. Closed louvers also protect expensive window coverings, carpets and furniture and help reduce interior cooling costs.

Equinox offers the ultimate lifestyle flexibility, energy efficiency, ease of operation and lasting durability.

Equinox Louvered Roofs are designed and built to last. Durable aluminum components tested under Miami-Dade County Hurricane protocols are engineered to withstand the local elements. This low maintenance solution requires only occasional cleaning.

Versatile design and power options complement any architectural design or lifestyle.

How does an Equinox Louvered Roof work?

Equinox Louvered Roofs contain louver blades that rotate within a fixed frame. Driven by a solar powered motor, the louvers rotate in unison to allow the exact amount of light, shade and ventilation desired. When closed, the interlocking louver blades create a waterproof seal. The louvers are slightly pitched to direct water into an integrated gutter and downspout system that channels rainwater away from the covered area.

Residential roofs are typically controlled by a rechargeable solar powered battery and a remote control that require no additional wiring or power from the home.

Depending on the roof size, commercial roofs are controlled by one or more toggle switches located near the patio area. The motor is powered by a transformer connected to an ordinary 110v outlet.

Where can Equinox Louvered Roofs be installed?

Equinox Louvered Roof systems can be used wherever sun, light and weather control is needed. Whether covering a patio, deck, spa, pool, outdoor kitchen, BBQ area, entryway or courtyard, Equinox roofs are designed and engineered to enhance outdoor lifestyles. The roofs may be built as a free-standing system or attached to an existing structure.

Are Equinox Louvered Roofs warranted?

Louvers and support components, including beams, gutters and posts, are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for ten (10) years from the date of installation.

All power components, including motors, solar panels, link bars and electronic controls are warranted for parts replacement three (3) years from the date of installation. Batteries are not included in this warranty.

Where can I purchase an Equinox Louvered Roof?
