In a nod to the popularity of outdoor music venues in the United States, the makers of a metal patio set off a frenzy when they unveiled their latest design last month.
The metal patio is a set of three concrete pillars that are supported by steel beams.
The design uses a metal frame for the exterior of the patio, and it is built to withstand the forces of the sun and wind, according to the makers.
The company says it is designed to protect against the weather, and the designers say it can withstand up to 40,000 pounds of force, or 3,500 kilograms of force.
A metal patio has been used in the Philippines, Mexico and the United Kingdom, among other countries, to protect outdoor space from the elements.
But in the U.S., the metal patio was banned by the Federal Communications Commission from the early 2000s, because it was considered to be too heavy.
The makers of the metal bar, known as “barons,” say the patio has since been adopted in a number of countries.
But the ban is the first major victory in the fight to make the patio a fixture in American homes.
