Polycarbonate supplier, Novolux, says it has the perfect product to help installers tap into the growing market for outdoor dining. National sales manager, Craig Weatherley, explains…
While all industries have experienced a fair share of hardship as a result of the pandemic, there’s no doubt that for the hospitality sector in particular, the past year and a half has been devastating.
Lockdown restrictions forced restaurants, cafés and bars to close their doors for several weeks, making it extremely difficult for these businesses to survive.
For those who have managed to come out the other end, however, they’ve seen a growing trend as a result of lockdown restrictions: outdoor dining.
In just about every town or city across the country, especially as the weather becomes warmer, restaurants have created seating on the pavements and streets outside their establishments, allowing punters to enjoy their meals while remaining socially distanced.
As a result, many of these establishments have jumped at the opportunity to invest in makeshift eateries, and the trend has seen a growing demand for things like wooden huts, pods and even yurts, sometimes even complete with electrical wiring, outdoor heaters, private TV sets, sliding doors and comfortable furniture.
Best on the market
One of the most common options for allowing outdoor dining, however, are canopies.
These overhead structures are great for providing shade and shelter for diners, while creating a sense of privacy from neighbouring tables.
And one of the best canopy systems on the market today is the Pro Self-Supporting Kit Canopy system from leading polycarbonate supplier Novolux.
There’s been a huge rise in people choosing to eat outdoors, whether that’s due to wanting to socially distance, or simply just enjoying the summer weather.
As a result, hospitality establishments are investing more and more in structures that allow for outdoor dining, and with the Novolux Pro Self-Supporting Kit Canopy system, installers can really tap into a surging market, offering trade customers a practical solution for their ever-changing needs.
Supplied as a complete kit and ready for immediate installation, the Novolux Pro Self-Supporting Kit Canopy system is available in bespoke sizes, as well as white or anthracite grey aluminium profiles to suit almost any kind of building.
The top quality powdercoated aluminium system is made from thick aluminium profiles and 16mm structured polycarbonate panels, and comes with integral rainwater drainage included, eliminating the need for PVC guttering and downpipes.
The system also comes with post feet already pre-welded to the posts for ease of installation, as well as aluminium sheet closures for extra strength and rigidity.
This new system comes with a long list of benefits, allowing installers to offer the best on the market to their customers.
What’s more, Novolux is offering the Pro Self-Supporting Kit Canopy system with an impressive 5 to 10-day lead time, ensuring installers can get their hands on it quickly and focus on the work at hand without delay.
The system also comes delivered as a complete kit ready for installation, saving installers even more time.

The system is also a great product to upsell along other installations – if you’re an installer fitting bi-folds or sliding patio doors into a pub or restaurant, for example, the Novolux Pro Self-Supporting Kit Canopy system is the perfect accompaniment to create an outdoor dining space that customers can enjoy.
Now is the perfect time for installers to offer this system to their customers – while covid restrictions are easing, being socially distant has become somewhat of a norm, and is sure to remain in place for some time. People do however want to enjoy eating out, and are more than happy to do so outdoors, especially during the summer.
