Barrel Vault Canopies

A Barrel Vault Canopy is also known as a tunnel vault, or a wagon vault. It is formed by the extrusion of a single curved along a given distance. The curves are typically circular, creating a semi-cylindrical appearance.

Our Motiva Duo curved roof canopy is often described as a ‘Barrel Vault Canopy’ or ‘Barrel Vaulted’ and can be made to any radius to suit your requirements. (Designers need to consider water run-off.) The Motiva Duo is our Duopitch (symmetric) curved roof canopy – where both sides are the same height.

The main features and benefits of a Barrel Vault canopy include:

  • Symmetric curved roof design
  • Solid steel framework
  • Genuine polycarbonate roofing
  • Finished in Dura-coat™ finish
  • Wide range of sizes
