How to Maximize Restaurant Patio Real Estate with a Commercial Pergola

The desire for people to connect through the sharing of food and the increase in customers looking for unique dining experiences offers tremendous opportunity for Denver area restaurants. You can stylishly accommodate social distancing and increased ventilation necessary in the COVID area with al fresco dining with StruXure Pivot 6 XL commercial pergolas. Our commercial aluminum pergolas allow you to use restaurant patio space in any weather.

 Revamp Your Restaurant Patio Design for Year-Round Use with a Louvered Pergola


Pivot louvered roof pergolas allow you to use restaurant patio space in any weather, providing on-demand protection so you can make the most of what every season has to offer.

  • Dial in the ideal amount of sun, shade, ventilation, or shut out the rain, rotating pergola louvers up to 170-degrees
  • Improve weather protection and comfort while preserving airflow with motorized screens
  • Incorporate built-in lighting for 24/7 use
  • Add ceiling fans and infrared patio heaters to your pergola, ensuring comfort year-round

With a well-outfitted pergola, you can create a space where patrons can enjoy the dining experiences they miss while feeling safe and socially responsible. When customers feel comfortable, they stay longer and return more frequently, keeping your restaurant full and ticket prices up.
