Scaffolding Modules for Shelter and Merchants

Easily-assembled scaffolding structures offer shelter and provide display areas for local merchants and can be quickly dismantled when not in use. PV cells can be integrated into the fabric on the tops of these structures, allowing them to provide solar-generated electricity to the public space for community events and phone charging. Clear environmental graphics encourage social distancing and safe circulation throughout the space.
