Structural Pergolas are larger commercial style pergola structures with long spans between posts. All beams are A Beam filled. With our Steel Insert System (US Patent #8061106) a four post pergola can be as much as 16' x 16'. There are other options available to save money as well as keep the open area under the pergola (see Reinforced Pergolas).
