Our canopies are the top choice for New Zealand homeowners because of its durability and elegance. Our Clearspan Awnings and Canopies feature 6mm thick grey-tinted polycarbonate roofing, and can withstand even the fiercest winds. This awning protects you and your family from the sun’s harmful rays, thanks to the 99% UV protection and glare reduction offered by its grey-tinted polycarbonate roofing.

This was an exciting project in the Lower North Island that showcases our commitment to excellence. The “Best in Class” Clearspan Awning, with its black powder coating and 6mm thick grey-tinted polycarbonate roofing, is both visually striking and durable. Complementing this, our outdoor screens in sleek black mesh offer privacy and a connection to the outdoors. This project redefines outdoor living, combining aesthetics and functionality seamlessly to create an unforgettable space.

Our polycarbonate roofing has multiple tint options:

  1. Clear: These are the best option to still get proper lighting with its 87% Light transmission and the healthy sun rays with its 72% Heat transmission
  1. Grey: Best for summer times as this will not compromise the beauty of daylight with its 59% Light transmission and 67% Heat transmission
  1. Opal: Elegance with shading can be achieved with 48% Light transmission while ensuring the climate will not be too hot for you home with 60% Heat transmission
