Toja Grid is a simple-to-install modular DIY pergola system. The Canadian-made brackets are triple coated to prevent rusting and can be used with any dressed structural lumber to create the perfect pergola.
The Toja Grid Advantage
Toja Grid brackets can be configured in an infinite number of ways to create one-of-a-kind structures.
Every bracket is treated with three layers of weather-resistant coating to prevent rusting.
Each Toja Grid section can be assembled in about 60 minutes.
No special tools are required.
Another benefit of choosing Toja is that it is an Ontario company (headquartered in Oakville, Ontario) and they manufacture all their brackets in Canada.

Tips for Building Toja Pergola Kits
Use Two Screws Per Side
Toja brackets come with eight screw holes on each side; however, screws should only be installed in the two openings closest to the wood.
The other openings are to attach accessories. If you’d like to fill all the openings with holes for aesthetic reasons, additional fasteners and covers can be purchased.
Brackets only come with enough screws to use two per side.
The Best Lumber to Use with Toja
Toja brackets are designed to work with dressed lumber (also referred to as nominal lumber). Nominal lumber is not to size but is actually ½ an inch smaller than the stated dimensions. So, if you purchase a 4x4 true SOLO base, make sure the wood actually measures 3-½x3-½”.
For species, we recommend either western red cedar or Douglas fir because of its strength, durability, and beauty. You could also use pressure-treated lumber, but it’s more susceptible to cracking and warping.

Stain or Finish Wood After Assembly
We recommend assembling the pergola and then staining or finishing the wood.
This allows the wood to dry evenly on all four sides. As will all projects, make sure the wood is dry before applying a stain or finish.
When using western red cedar or Douglas fir posts, we recommend using CUTEK Extreme Stabilizer oil to finish the lumber.
