All of our standard canopy systems are pre-engineered at a maximum of 88” Tie-back spacing. We can accomplish larger spacings and still get stamped drawings with some custom reinforcing of the face and/or above the canopy.

  • Colorado, Seattle and Pittsburgh Systems-4’ 0” projection with cantilevered brackets spaced 5’ 0” apart and having a face at least 12” high

A downspout can then be attached to the outlet. Other canopies with simple rain pans have a continuous drip line that can be managed somewhat with a rain diverter.
