Corradi Outdoor Enclosure Systems
GiCor has been creating outdoor living spaces for our clients using a wide range of product solutions. Corradi USA is an Italian based company that provides a variety of systems proven for the North American market. By transforming outdoor areas into elegant living spaces through their motorized retractable shade systems such as “Pergotenda” they have become renowned for their product line.
These are made to measure systems for the protection from sun, rain, and in some instances even snow (when heated) which can be free standing, installed against the building structure or, if suitable, on pre-existing structures. The systems are typically made with aluminum or wood structures depending on the size & nature of the project requirements. Pitched versions have guaranteed wind resistance from grade 6 to 8 on the Beaufort scale, while flat versions have grade 6 resistance (above class 3 – UNI EN 13561). The folding canvas or Vinyl coated fabrics are available in a wide range of options to suit any design. This fabric is supported by intermediate supporting tubes and terminal bars set parallel to one another that move by sliding on side tracks / carriers with asymmetrical wheels. Faux ceilings are also available as a second layer with the Impact system to create a more decorative appearance from below.

Available in manual & motorized systems, they can be designed for roof mounted applications, wall & soffit mounted as well as recessed into the building structure with some additional planning. Fabrics are most often screen style base cloths with an opacity between 0 to 60% open depending on the desired outcome.
