Weathersafe Shade Pergolas
The traditional use of pergolas in cafes and restaurants has been well and truly replaced by the creative use of contemporary fabric structures for shade and all-weather needs. Whether it be creating functional and vibrant eating areas, or all weather smoking areas, gone are the days when pergolas were the only real solution for cafe and restaurant owners seeking shade, wind, or rain protection. The design simplicity of a fabric pergola, even given the requirement for visually outstanding complexity, lends itself to use in any or all similar circumstances.
The materials required for a fabric shade pergola are vastly less than their traditional pergola equivalents. The membrane can span greater distances and use significantly less steel structure and uprights. Further, all the materials used in a fabric shade pergola are 100% recyclable.
The team at Weathersafe SA have just completed an all weather area at the Tanunda Cafe, in the Barossa Valley. Incorporating a dual conic membrane with perimeter clear PVC cafe blinds, and adding cost effective heating options into the structure, the cafe now boasts a more functional outdoor area that doesn't need to stop when inclement weather hits. Check out the pictures below.
