Equinox louvered roof system is shown above.

Struxure’s louvered roof system with a 6″ single-cell louver and a 2″ x 6″ frame is a different design from the Equinox louvered roof system with an extruded 2″ x 8″ frame and an 8″ louver. Both systems are adjustable patio covers that provide rain protection, shade, and ventilation for outdoor spaces, but they have some critical differences in terms of their design and construction.

Here are some of the differences between the two systems:

  1. Louver Size: The Struxure system uses a 6″ single-cell louver, while the Equinox system uses an 8″ louver dual cell. A larger louver can provide more shade and ventilation, but it may also be more expensive and require more maintenance.
  2. Frame Size: The Struxure system has a 2″ x 6″ frame, while the Equinox system has a 2″ x 8″ frame. A larger frame can provide more stability and support for the louvers, but it may also be heavier and more expensive.
  3. Material: The Struxure system is made of extruded aluminum, while the Equinox system is also made of extruded aluminum but may use a different alloy. The choice of material can affect the durability and maintenance requirements of the system.
  4. Design: The Struxure system is designed with a single-cell louver, which may limit its ability to provide insulation and noise reduction. The Equinox system has a dual-cell louver option, providing better insulation and noise reduction, and larger louver spans up to 14′.

Ultimately, the choice between the Struxure and Equinox systems will depend on your specific needs, preferences, and budget. It may be helpful to research and compare both systems in terms of their features, benefits, and pricing before making a decision.
