How does an Equinox® Louvered Roof work?
An Equinox Louvered Roof™ contains louver blades, which rotates in unison over a 160 degree range of motion activated by a small 12 volt DC motor. The louver blades has the ability to stop anywhere allowing an exact regulation of light, shade and ventilation desired.
The blades are controlled by either a single toggle switch or multiple toggle switches conveniently placed in the patio area or the remote control. Power to the system is provided by a small rechargeable battery through the use of a solar panel incorporated into the system or by a small transformer which plugs into an ordinary household 110v outlet.
The Equinox Louvered Roof™ system can also be integrated with home automation systems allowing pre-programmed settings, times, moisture sensors, etc. When closed, the interlocking louver blades create a waterproof seal and a slight pitch drains the water away into the incorporated gutter and downspout system.
