Canopy for Outdoor Dining

This canopy design is an 8’x8’ module with a maximum height of 9’. The frame is made of 2″x4″ wooden studs and is capped with corrugated PVC to provide shelter from rain and sun. A single canopy might serve a restaurant, and they can be grouped in rows for use in open spaces or plazas. Varying the angles of the canopy roofs can help to improve air circulation.
