Covered Entryway Structures

PFEIFER Structures designs, engineers, and installs lightweight covered entryways. Our covered entryway structures are modern interpretations of time-honored classical architecture. We produce building entries that range from portico-style structures that cover the entrance of a building to porte-cochere structures that cover a driveway at the entrance of a building to provide shelter while entering or exiting a vehicle. At just 1/100th the weight of glass the advanced ETFE, PTFE, and PVC membrane materials we craft our structures from require minimal structural support which allows us to create amazing, fanciful lightweight structures previously unimagined.

Covered entryways provide visitors protection from the elements while entering or exiting a building, helps to reduce water infiltration at entrances, and decreases the risk of slips or falls from rain, snow, or ice. Our covered entryway structures are low maintenance, can be designed to allow filtered daylight, and are sustainably built.
