The Breakthrough 5 Pergola™,
The World's First Automated Outdoor Living Room.
A complete additional enclosed room on your residence.
An app-integrated glass door enclosure complete with rain sensor and heater plus many options to provide the ultimate getaway right in your own backyard.
A lot of companies glass doors are made of weak glass and will shatter easily. Ours are tempered and made to last. Most companies will make you call around and find doors and sides for your pergola on your own, and you won't really know if they fit properly until it's too late. It can be a huge hassle even calling around explaining to places that make glass doors for residential or business structures that you need special glass for a pergola. Let us take care of everything. We can get you any style you desire and install it along with your pergola so your build takes a weekend not months. Our glass doors can be sliding, or they can open out like French doors or they all can bend in a bifold style. Our glass doors can have locks if you prefer.
Now you don't even have to stand up to adjust your louvers. From the convenience of our Bluetooth app, you can simply touch your phone to open or close your louvers as you please. Create your own interplay of shadow and light by swiveling each slat of your bioclimatic patio cover with the touch of your fingertips.
Our app support seamlessly integrates with your phone or tablet to control your Breakthrough Pergola. You simply open the app and touch " heater" to turn it on and adjust it's intensity. Touch "fan" and adjust it's speed. You can rotate your louvers to allow more sun in, or close them entirely with only a tap. Turn on your lights with just a touch, and tap different colors to tune your mood. Your speaker's volume and movie screen can also be controlled through our Breakthrough app. Our app will work with full Alexa support, and Google Home, if you prefer to fold you pergola into your broader home controls. When you integrate with this technology you can talk to your pergola and tell it to open up the sky, or turn on the movie.
Our elegant heaters are included with your Breakthrough 5 pergola, they will quickly warm your space and make you cozy even if all your walls are not sealed. Just like heaters at outdoor restaurants, letting you enjoy the night without pause. Our heaters are full-spectrum with near, mid and far range heat to quickly warm you evenly to your core. They are high-powered, silent and streamlined to fit against the top center of your structure. Easily controlled with just a touch to your phone or tablet.
Your Breakthrough Engineering 5 will be waterproof, and a weather sensor will seal your pergola from all sides without you lifting a finger. The louvers of your Breakthrough Pergola interlock, providing leakproof rain protection. Integrated gutters and downspouts manage water with ease and can also manage heavy snow loads. If it's 2am and you're fast asleep when the storm rolls in, your Breakthrough Engineering 5 will detect the rain, snow or even heavy wind and immediately seal the roof and sides of your pergola so that your belongings are as safe as the ones inside your house.
Retractable with a touch of your phone, our screens protect you from direct sunlight while still allowing it's light and warmth to break through. They seal out bugs, wind and rain, while allowing you to enjoy the pleasures of your outdoor space as they let fresh air glide through. They are designed to be nearly silent and raise up and down like a breeze. Many companies make their screens flimsy and they will tear with a strong wind, but Breakthrough Engineering's windscreens are made to withstand violent storms.
Most companies won't supply good windscreens with their pergolas, if they will bother to find you one at all. The rest will charge an arm and a leg for ultrawide screens because they make their screens so flimsy they can't stretch without breaking. We engineer our windscreens to be tough and weather-resistant so ours can stretch across your whole pergola unbroken and beautiful.
Finally, if you prefer that sunbrella effect in a 360 scenario you can fine tune exactly how much fresh air and sunshine can break in to your space with our interlocking shutters (louvers) surrounding you - each side panel able to open out exactly as much as you please. This is such a great option for when you're spending the whole day in your pergola - you can shadow the sun as it crosses the sky exactly to your desire. With Google Home or Amazon's Alexa you can talk to your pergola and tell the sky to open up.
Our favorite is to mix and match your options. Glass doors or a windscreen opening surrounded by louvers means you have easy entry with ventilation and adjustable shading, giving you the most modern, fuctional pergola possible.
Louvers are more advanced than shutters. Shutters are slats that lay on top of one another in a row, because of their simple, classic design they can't guarantee being waterproof. Some rain will get in with the classic shutter design. Breakthrough Engineering's Louvers™ on the other hand, are interlocking components that seal out all possibility of rain or snow seeping through. They are designed in an S shape, and when they close it's like when you take your closed fingers and interlock them with your other hand with closed fingers - a strong safe bond you can trust.
Our Breakthrough Engineering Luxurious Louvers™ are designed to channel the rain water away down their secret flush through the beams to the ground below with cleverly designed slats that funnel and sort the rain so there are no waterfalls coming off your pergola to douse you like other companies. Our smooth, beautiful Luxurious Louvers™ will stand the test of time - your lifetime, taming the sun for you just the way you desire, providing endless beauty.
Many companies only use shutters that rotate to 130 degrees, but ours pivot to 170°, so you can fine tune how much shade you'd like to enjoy. Set new boundaries between shadows and clarity, create new interplays of light, sculpt the sun. You're finally free to create your own interplay of shadow and light by swiveling each slat of your bioclimatic patio cover as far as you desire. Choosing to cover your terrace should not mean losing light and comfort. With an umbrella, patio cover or awning all the sun is blocked out underneath, making you cold which defeats the purpose of spending time outside. The bioclimatic pergola captures light while providing solar protection, natural ventilation and protection against bad weather.
Breakthrough Engineering's LED Extreme Weatherproof Lighting System™ is the world's first LED lighting system engineered to be fully functional during the hottest summer and freezing temperatures, withstand winds up to 30 mph, that do not move or get damaged. While our competitor's lights get tangled and need to be replaced once a year, ours are extremely durable and will last more than a decade.
Professor Stephen Westland of Leeds University is the Chair of Color Science and Technology for two decades now, and he's arguably the foremost scholar in advancing psychophysics - the science of quantifying human perceptual response to physical stimuli - in the realm of color.
He's made it clear that just like the ear is not only responsible for hearing but also for balance, the eye has two receptors as well, and one is not even visual! Part of our eye absorbs different wavelengths and processes that information in ways that regulate our sleep cycles and mood.
Breakthrough Engineering has become enchanted with colorplay, and how Professor Westland's studies have proven that color can actually affect your heart rate, mood, alertness and even impulsivity. Blue calms the nervous system, so in the evening when the sun has set, you may choose to stay outside under your pergola and set the tone with a soothing azure hue. Green reduces stress if work or the kids have put a strain on you, and pink may even lower your blood pressure!
Play with romance under your pergola by selecting a red glow, because her heart literally will skip a beat according to science, as red gently increases heart rate and brings a heightened alertness: a passionate mood.
Most of all, play with your new color palette! Be an artist of mood, of mind, of body! Explore which colors make you feel joyful, sensual or relaxed. Learn more about your friends and family while you giggle, discussing how colors make them feel. Breakthrough Engineering's Chromatic Therapy is yet another feature that sets us apart from the rest, because we want you to absolutely love your pergola.
Bioclimatic architecture is a way of designing with the aim of ensuring thermal comfort using environmental resources. The structure must also blend into the natural surroundings.
The main aims of bioclimatic architecture are to create healthy, comfortable spaces for the inhabitants of these structures, while respecting the environment. To do this, it is essential to avoid using polluting materials, ensure the wellbeing of local biodiversity and make efficient use of energy, building materials, water and other resources.
There are many kinds of bioclimatic structures, but Breakthrough Engineering's louvered aluminum pergolas are the epitome of bioclimatic alignment. There is virtually no footprint in using natural, abundant aluminum, and the open air shelter achieves natural thermal comfort as finely-tuned as man has ever seen. Automated and silent, the shape of our Luxurious Louvers means that air will naturally curve and refresh to keep us healthy. The user takes advantage of the external elements such as wind and sunlight in a completely natural manner. Our pergolas' structuring meets resistance and lightness requirements, even in climatic conditions with significant temperate changes, salty air or constant wind.
Breakthroughs in research have resulted in the findings that man's strongest desire is to be in bioclimatic spaces with open enclosures where man feels protected, while connected to fresh air and earth. Our pergolas fulfil this most basic, primal need to link ourselves with nature while feeling sheltered and safe at home. We have created our pergolas to bring humans to their most peaceful, fulfilled state of mind. The epitome of relaxation.
The Breakthrough Pergola 5 includes a fan that has variable speeds and is controlled with a touch of your phone. Most other companies will make you go find your own fan, you may not know if it fits and looks right with your pergola. Some companies will find you fans that aren't weather-resistant and are going to break their first year. Our fans are built to last, we always use quality components in everything we make at Breakthrough Engineering.
It has a light in it's center so if you want a gentler light other than your LED wraparound lighting you now have that option. Or turn on both for extra lighting when you need it. You can always fine tune your comfort in your Breakthrough Pergola 5. Of course if you prefer your pergola's ceiling to be unbroken and only louvers we won't include it, everything in your pergola is customizable and your choice.
We don't use flimsy rolled aluminum, we use heavy duty, aerospace-grade extruded beams that our architects designed to stay durable through years of movement and weather. They will withstand heavy snow and hurricanes. Our cleverly-designed slats whisk the rain away and respond to your repositioning decades from now just as easily as they did the first day you bought your Breakthrough Pergola. Powder coated aluminium cannot rust and is extremely resistant to deterioration; virtually maintenance-free.
Pergolas that are prone to rot can be a liability when trying to sell a house. We understand that you only want to invest in a structure that will add value to your home. Breakthrough Pergolas will multiply the value of your home, because you are essentially adding another room to your house, and it's built to last for lifetimes to come.
Many companies use wood or composite or PVC composite, which all burn as if it were their purpose for existing. All of those components are made to burn - but aluminum is nearly impossible to catch fire. View our video of a composite vs aluminum test in the videos below.
Imagine spending thousands on an investment only to watch it perish in flames.
Aluminum is so hard to burn you could burn coals on top of it and they'll just fizzle out. It's what NASA uses in their rockets, after all, to withstand the heat and pressure of take off and re-entry into space. With all the wildfires burning across the nation in these times, let Breakthrough Engineering remove that worry. When a firefighter comes to save the day, their very hoses are made with extruded aluminum - the part they hold on to and direct at the fire is made of the same material we use.
We have designed a hidden drainage system for every Breakthrough Pergola. The rain pools to the hidden rain gutters within the roof, where it flows to the side gutters and into the posts, where it flushes out through the bottom of the posts so that your pergola is entirely unaffected by the weather and never splashes you with runoff.
Our aluminum is powder-coated so you'll never have to worry about cleaning it. Our technology layers your pigment so deeply your color will be indestructable. We offer five different colors for our standard pergolas, these are our most chosen colors that blend easily with most habitats. Custom orders have infinite options of colors, so spin a color wheel and choose jacaranda or scarlet or whatever you desire if you're going to personalize your pergola.
Breakthrough Pergolas™ are designed, developed, and hand assembled in the USA, and we ship them directly from our Southern California factory. We work with local architects and engineers who have the same desire we do—to create your new favorite room in your home, increasing your property value and bringing your family joy for years to come. We accept nothing less than perfection so we are in control of the product from start to finish; we don't allow any middlemen to compromise our vision. You can purchase our pergolas directly from us with confidence, knowing that you're getting an unmatched product.
Many times when you work with a company, their sales is American, and they promise you the moon. But then after your purchase if anything is amiss, you go to call this "American" company and sure enough you're trying to explain your situation to someone halfway around the world, outsourced for a tenth of the cost of hiring American workers all so the CEO can line his pockets. When you call into Breakthrough Engineering to discuss your pergola or receive customer service, you will be calling our office in Santa Clarita, California. The hard-earned money you invest in your home should be honored end-to-end and you will always work only with our office here in beautiful Southern California.
The standard height for our pergolas is 8 feet. For aesthetic purposes we can do custom builds up to 10 feet, but of course the standard height is going to maximize your ability to control the sun.
We can get extremely creative with these kinds of designs! We can attach two beams to a wall and give you coverage for whatever length you please; we can even go beamless and attach our Luxurious Louvers between two structures! Call us to learn more.
Your Breakthrough 5 can be up to 16x20 - if you want a larger size pergola you'll want to look at our Breakthrough 6, which adds another 2 posts to double the size of your pergola, or 4 posts to triple the size, and so forth. We can always do custom designs as well to any build you wish, just give us a call.
This is going to be a custom option, because the standard design for this effect is not waterproof and we want to always ensure your belongings are safe from the elements at our baseline. We can do this design waterproof as well but it does cost more so call us for a quote on what you're interested in.
Yes! We offer full financing options to all who qualify. Begin enjoying open air culture immediately, starting for less than a new car payment.
Our warranty extends to a 15-year warranty on the structure, along with a 5-year warranty on the electronics.
If your pergola is automated it will sync to Bluetooth, and the app lets you adjust the angle of the pitch from fully open on through whichever angle you desire for partial shade and airflow, and you can fully close the louvers as well. You can also direct the smart sensors to determine how your system performs automatically in the wind, rain and extreme temperatures. You can turn your lights off and on, your fan off and on, your heater off and on and even your movie screen and speakers should you invest in a Breakthrough 6. Enjoy full control with the swipe of your finger, or voice activation through Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
You know, the photos of the glass walls looked so cool my husband wanted to get the glass, but I insisted on the shutters so we got glass for the entry and shutters on the sides. Our pergola is a dream! It looks so classy and the shutters allow the breeze to come in and we can enjoy the wisteria in the fresh air all evening! When the sun is up I can tilt the shutters so we're never too hot, and in the evening we can still leave them a little open for fresh air with the heater on. We have breakfast out here now, and it's where we head when we return home.
So we got one for our hot tub, and liked the louvers and automation so much we got another for next to it so we could add a lounge - wish we had just got the Breakthrough 6 to start with! But it's really so cool, we feel so baller.
I have a relationship with the moon, I howl for her often. I know most people get these pergolas for the sun in the daytime, but my friends are vampires, we only hang out at night. I love having a place to play my guitar at night and let fresh air in and see the moon. The heater keeps it nice and toasty.
I like to tell everyone I built my pergola, because they look at it and are so impressed. I don't tell them I just told Breakthrough Engineering exactly how I wanted it and they designed it all for me! Breakthrough Engineering made it so simple, and now when I invite friends over for bbq it doesn't matter what the weather does, we have fun no matter what! I only wish I'd thought of this sooner.
The rain guard is so cool. Feels like it's so high-tech it's so impressive when I'm inside watching TV and I notice it's raining I start feeling panicked about all the stuff I've left outside and I go out there and it's all closed up like magic! It took me a month to get used to it! But now I trust it and I know everything out there is safe. It's so cool it makes me feel like I'm one of the Jetsons! I really look forward to my sunny days out there.
We eat every meal out here. I mean we don't even discuss it, when we make lunch we just head back there. It's a joy, wish I'd had this all my life.
