Our New Newsletter

Updated: Apr 30, 2020

Welcome to our first monthly newsletter. This is a place where we hope to inspire you, inform you, and provide useful and relevant information. We hope it will be of value to you. We will highlight news, products and services, product care and maintenance tips, backyard inspiration an any company/staff news. If at any stage you wish to opt out, please hit the unsubscribe button. On the other hand if you feel someone else can gain value from this newsletter please feel free to share it around.


We have resumed production on Tuesday 28th April. In preparation for restarting our operations we have prepared processes that ensure we are a safe business and able to follow Alert Level 3 restrictions. Our number one priority is staff and customer safety. Our showroom is open with social distancing and we are quoting and installing products following government guidelines.


We will be manufacturing Protective Clear PVC Screens that are either fixed or retractable to act as a separation barrier protecting you, your staff and your customer's.

These will be custom made so you can have a screen that best suits your needs and budget. By choosing retractable you protect your investment by ensuring your screen can roll away but still remain if there is a change of Alert Levels.

Call us today if this could benefit you and your business.

Product Focus

Introducing our Louvre Shade

You can catch the sun, shield the wind, create shade, or close for rain & privacy. An all New Zealand weather solution. Available in a range of colours and backed by a 10 year warranty.

New Service

We are launching a new service to all our loyal customer's. Have you had one of our products installed quite some time ago? Have you done a little maintenance but would prefer an expert to come out and inspect your product? Depending on the product, this would include us checking the operation, checking the fixings, checking the stiching and overall condition of the product, maybe adding some lubrication, adjusting turnbuckles and re-tensioning if required and checking any addtional sensors & remotes. We would anticipate this service to be around $200. If more work was/is required outside of the normal scope then we would quote the repair and discuss this with you before under taking additonal work. If you would like to book in for a product service or want to find out more please call 07 5722509 or email
