B128 vs B128 XL: streamlined elegance vs abundant shade

The B128 and B128 XL - two Brustor pergolas with matching names… Let’s take a closer look at the two for a glimpse of the similarities and differences. The names tip you off to the key difference: ‘XL’ stands for shade in abundance.

Balancing sun and shade: what the B128 and B128 XL have in common

The B128 and B128 XL have many similarities. Are you looking for shelter from the sun? Or would you like to create a new outdoor space? The B128 and B128 XL can make it happen.

The fabric roof of both pergolas – like retractable awnings – can easily be opened or closed by remote control or with the app. You have complete control over the shade on your patio. Plus, you decide how much natural light you enjoy indoors.

Please keep in mind pergola options may vary. More information about the available options can be found in the brochure or on the B128 and B128 XL product pages

Abundant shade thanks to the B128 XL pergola

The primary difference between the B128 and the B128 XL is the structure: the B128 XL is specially designed to shade large surfaces. To that end, its frame is also more robust. But it remains just as true to Brustor’s characteristic minimalist and stylish design. Consequently, you get the most out of abundant outdoor shade on outsized patios. What better solution for restaurants with large outdoor dining areas? On top of that, the B128 XL can be equipped with sleek screens that integrate almost seamlessly into the pergola’s frame.

Two iterations, one range: the differences between the B128 and B128 XL pergolas

Let’s recap. The B128 is best suited to small spaces, while the B128 XL has a more robust look and is perfect for shading large surfaces. Moreover, the B128 XL pergola’s frame has integrated screens for a sleek finish. B128 screens, in contrast, are built onto the frame. Aside from that? The two pergolas are remarkably alike and favourites of the Brustor range.
