Solara roll-formed louver vs. Extruded
Basically, there are two types of louvered roof systems sold by Solara, Roll-formed and extruded. For the most part, and to make this simple, think of the roll-formed as a thinner material when compared to extruded.
Durable Roll Formed Louvered Roof Systems
In a nutshell, the roll formed louver is a much thinner gauge aluminum louver compared to extruded. It starts out as a sheet of aluminum and basically "bent" into its shape. Its only downside is that its not as sturdy as the extruded. Thus, the louver cant span as far as the extruded.
Extruded Louvered Roof System
On th other hand, the extruded is a louver that is significantly thicker and thus is able to span much further than the roll formed.
Both, however, are powder coated and are very durable.
