Patio Canopy Enclosure

The Z Loft Hotel Bar & Grill requested an enclosure for their existing spacious restaurant patio so guests could enjoy dining in during inclement weather year round. In addition they wanted to rent out the patio space for entertainment and private parties.

Lawrence custom fabricated and installed a patio canopy enclosure, measuring 29’ 6” wide by 34’ 6” projection, 5’ tall, consisting of 22 seasonal enclosure panels plus 2 framed fabric doors. Steel support posts are painted black and bolted to concrete pad via structural anchors. Aluminum canopy frames are all welded sections that mechanically fastened together onsite. Canopy attaches to the building and steel support posts are located along the perimeter of the canopy. Canopy frame and sidewall panel frames are unpainted mill finish aluminum. Front gutter was installed to channel all water run –off. Fire Retardant Fabric Ferrari 502-2157, color Aniseed to coordinate with existing patio décor and logo color. All main fabric seams are water tight welded vs. sewn with welded in clear vinyl windows.

The new canopy needed to tie into the building and existing standing seam metal canopy all while allowing for proper snow/rain run-off. The goal of keeping the patio area dry was achieved. The client was very pleased with how the canopy enclosure enhanced the overall look of the restaurant. The bright fabric color choice and unique design was a beautiful addition to the existing patio. Customers can stay dry and comfortable while dining or listening to music. The owner continues to receive compliments and revenue has increased with the private party rentals.
