Is it time to update your restaurant patio? Turn your worn, deserted patio into a warm, inviting, lively outdoor dining space with a Pivot 6 XL commercial pergola. The National Restaurant Association recommends updating your decor every 5-7 years to ensure a fresh, modern feel. And with the emergence of the delta variant driving more consumers than ever to dine outside for safety, there’s never been a better time to refresh your outdoor seating area.

 Overcome the challenges of the changing season and the Denver area’s unpredictable weather with a louvered roof pergola. Pivot commercial aluminum pergolas let you dial-in the ideal amount of sun, shade, or shelter for patio patrons on-demand. Louvers rotate up to 170 degrees, allowing you to find the perfect angle for maximum ventilation, customer comfort, and weather protection. 

Maintain Consistent Comfort Levels & Reduce Staff Maintenance 

StruXure’s commercial-grade pergolas ensure guest comfort even in rapidly changing weather, featuring a built-in gutter system and leak-free rain protection. No more running for cover. No more staff cleanup to get your sodden patio back into use after rain or snow. Enjoy complete precipitation protection at the touch of a remote-control button, pre-program settings using Somfy’s MyLink app, or integrate the weather-sensing technology for automatic response to changing weather, including rain, wind, snow, and ice.

Customize Your Commercial Pergola Design to Align with Your Brand or Location

StruXure louvered pergolas are easily customizable, offering nearly endless options to suit your needs and draw customer attention with your newly revamped outdoor addition:

  • Choose your color

The Pivot line is available in standard colors white, black, beige, bronze, adobe, and gray, as well as thousands of custom colors and faux wood wrap to complement your restaurant’s theme. 

  • Deck out your design

Accent your design with architectural columns, corbel ends, columns and trim, a sliding roof with a panoramic view, and other unique features.

  • Accessorize

Enhance 24/7 pergola functionality with:

    • Recessed lighting
    • Ceiling fans and patio heaters
    • Motorized patio insect screens
    • Other accessories to create a streamlined transition between your indoor and outdoor dining areas

Put Wasted Space to Work with Added Restaurant Patio or Deck Seating

Expand into unused real estate or add an upper level. StruXure’s strong yet lightweight aluminum pergolas are ideally suited for new or existing upper-level deck seating. Comfortable, relaxed guests stay longer and order more drinks and food. Adding outdoor dining space delivers a fast return on investment, increasing seating capacity and raising ticket prices.

Create an Exclusive Feel With a ‘Patio Only’ Menu & Dedicated Staff


Get Financing


Change drinks and dining fare by the season, offering chilled, refreshing options in warmer weather and hot steaming entrees and drinks on cool winter nights. Ensure patio diners don’t feel neglected with a dedicated staff and added help, ensuring repeat business and word-of-mouth advertisement. If you have the square footage, put your staff center stage with an outdoor kitchen or bar decked out with outdoor TVs perfect for hosting sporting events. 

Prevent restaurant sales from slowing regardless of the status of the pandemic. Turn your unusable winter patio seating into a preferred dining destination. Draw new clientele, advertising your business with a happily active patio. Contact Denver Pergola Systems at 303-505-6669 to learn more or schedule a complimentary design consultation today.
