4K Aluminum Lattice Patio Covers In Los Angeles
If you’ve thought you’ve seen it all when it comes to aluminum patio covers and pergolas in Los Angeles think again. Of course, most aluminum patio covers and pergolas such as the Alumawood, Duralum and Four season covers we see here in Los Angeles have that traditional wood grain am I right?. And of course, let’s not forget that their material is mostly lightweight gauge aluminum. Not that those are poor quality products, not at all. Introducing the 4K Aluminum Lattice Patio Cover/pergola and Pergo Soleil laser cut panel systems.
In contrast, however, there is a new Aluminum Lattice/pergola product here in Los Angeles and it goes by the name 4K. Why is 4K different than other Aluminum Patio cover companies in Los Angeles? For starters, the 4K material is thicker gauge… extruded aluminum and powder-coated. So there are a few differences between these materials which separate the 4K aluminum patio cover from the rest.
4K Aluminum vs Alumawood AluminumThe new 4K patio cover is selling off the shelves like it was water after an earthquake. It’s my opinion that it’s mostly to blame for its much thicker profile not to mention its seamless, smooth and very sleek. The 4K aluminum patio cover is a great alternative if you’re in the market for aluminum and are considering Alumawood or Duralum products.
The 4K benefits in summary
- Smooth – no wood grain
- Prefinished on the inside of the product before the paint
- Solid billet caps – not plastic
- Spans up to 20 feet with no posts
Patio cover spans up to 20 feet with only 2 posts!Everyone wants a super wise patio cover with as few posts as possible… right? Well, unfortunately, most traditional aluminum patio cover companies here in Los Angeles cant come close to the capable spans of the 4K. Many of these aluminum patio cover companies have maximum spans of up to 8 feet without a steel insert for stability.
On the other hand, the 4K product requires no such insert. As a matter of fact, the material is so superior, it has the engineered capability of spanning up to 20 feet with only 2 posts.
Think about that… imagine having the capability of enjoying the entire backyard, hillside or city view with very few obstructions. Well, that’s what the 4K product brings to the table. Super wide spans, heavy-gauge aluminum in beautiful powder coat finishes.
Of course, if you’re saying to yourself that wood can span even further, you’re correct. But it’s hard to compare Aluminum to wood because wood can be modified by the use of PSLs or Glue-Lam members and with engineering.
