Transform outdoor areas
into atmospheric zones
for dining and leisure

We regularly work with architects and stretch tent rental companies who understand our product, to visualize concepts for covered outdoor spaces in restaurants and leisure zones.

Cover a courtyard area; set up a pop-up dining room; create a chill lounge, dance floor, outdoor bar or treatment centre. You can do it beautifully, quickly and cost-effectively with a stretch canopy concept from Freeform®.

Outdoor Cover for Restaurants & Pubs

A Freeform® canopy installed in your restaurant, allows you to open your entire space for business, year-round. Canopies are open and airy, providing natural ventilation and shade, as well as full protection from the rain. Junctions between the restaurant building and covered area are neat and watertight for a seamless weatherproof transition between the indoor and outdoor space.

Our stretch canopies offer the most flexible solution for covering awkward spaces and we can custom-manufacture to fit an exact area or design concept.

A resounding benefit, is that our custom solution will accommodate existing features like trees and stairwells – maximizing the available space.

What is the lead time from order to installation?2023-11-21T05:39:47+00:00

4 to 6 weeks depending on the size and complexity of the project.

Can I have permanent pole fixtures instead of guy ropes?2023-11-21T05:40:33+00:00

Yes absolutely. Permanent poles are first placed into the ground and allowed to set. We will then measure point to point and build the tent according to these dimensions. Installing the tent is then as simple as clipping the tent to all the fixing points and then pushing the centre poles into place to create the required tension.

How long will it last?2023-11-21T05:41:47+00:00

The longevity of the tent will depend on your geographical area and how much UV exposure they are subjected to. You should expect a minimum of 5 years lifespan with some tents in the northern hemisphere reaching 8 to 10 years.
