Depending on your taste, the louvre roof construction may lead to the question of whether the louvered pergola should be mounted on the wall or free-standing.
It may be necessary for a seamless connection to your existing building to mount the existing wall’s louvered roof. It makes a difference what material the wall is made of and whether the corresponding wall is equipped with full thermal insulation. How to proceed in the construction with the various materials you will learn in this article.
You will receive the necessary fastening with the anchor dowels and M12 bolts supplied. You can apply them directly to concrete and stone and screw them tightly. In the case of masonry, we recommend filling the drill holes with injection mortar beforehand and then inserting the dowel and anchor. Level everything and use a long level and plumb bob for alignment.
There are several possibilities. We recommend the fischer Thermax 16 anchors. These cost some money, but they are the best thermal and fastest solution with a load capacity of up to 350 kg per anchor. For masonry, fill the voids with injection mortar beforehand. You can also cut out the full thermal insulation in warm regions and attach the beam directly to the wall. Note, however, that in cold areas, this may result in a condensation point.
It is also possible to use threaded stands, injection mortar, and spacers. If you have any questions, our support team will be happy to help you at any time.
Calculate the load capacity of the beams. If it is sufficient, then you can screw directly to the beams with wooden anchors. If this is not sufficient, usually the existing beam, after all, already carries a structure, so ask our support. Maybe you should think about the fact that the louvered roof is equipped with uprights on the wall.
If the wall mounting is located under eaves and protected from rain, no further tinsmith work is required. However, if rain can get to the wall mount, we recommend adding a 10cm rain sheet for protection. This sheet can be filled with bitumen sealant on the wall side – depending on the substrate’s unevenness.
Of course, you can put a free-standing louvered roof on the wall and attach it to the wall over the uprights. This is especially recommended if you are not sure about the load capacity. The uprights on the wall side also have the positive effect that you can use side panels such as, e.g., ZIP roller blinds can also mount.
