Why Vergola is still the best

Vergola® was Australia’s first opening and closing louvre roof system when it was invented in 1984. So, why is the original Vergola® still the best?

Made of longer-lasting Australian-made Colorbond® and Australian manufactured Cyclone rated high quality Aluminum Blades

While other louvre systems use cheaper aluminium alternatives, Vergola® continues to use the superior Australian-made BlueScope® Colorbond® that is the roofing material of choice for nearly half of all new Australian homes and over 80% of all Australian gutters and fascias. Colorbond® steel complies with building standard AS2728.

  1. Colorbond® is manufactured from Zincalume® steel with an aluminium/zinc/magnesium alloy coating that is stronger and longer-lasting than aluminium
  2. A conversion layer is applied to the steel surface to improve adhesion
  3. Colorbond’s Super Polyester coating technology ensures the Vergola’s finish retains its ‘as new’ look for longer
  4. Exterior grade paint is baked on to the Zincalume® steel base giving Vergola® resistance to chipping, peeling and cracking that is superior to powder-coated aluminium louvres

Double-skin aerofoil louvres create better insulation

Vergola’s unique double-skin aerofoil-shaped louvre creates an insulating air-gap to keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter than single-skin aluminium louvre systems.

Did you know? Nearly half of all new homes in Australia have Colorbond roofs. Over 80% of all Australian gutters and fascias are made from Colorbond.

Vergola Brisbane also manufactures high quality Australian made Aluminum cyclone wind rated blades (James Cook University), suitable for apartment high wind living and Queensland costal areas.
