We understand that every home is unique. That’s why our shade solutions offer versatility in design. You can choose between an arched or flat styled roof, allowing you to customise your awning to seamlessly blend with your property’s aesthetic.

Rust-Free Durability: The Robust Nature of Outsider & Clearspan Awnings in New Zealand

1. Arched Roof Awnings: With their gentle curves, they add a touch of sophistication to any setting. If you’re looking to infuse a sense of timeless charm into your outdoor space, the arched roof option is a perfect choice.
