Product overview

This free-standing, cantilevered carport is a stunning addition to any property.

With its floating design and sleek dark grey finish, it’s the perfect combination of form and function in a carport.

A top quality, high intensity alloy frame is powder coated for durability and results in an exceptionally strong structure. Backed by a 5 Year Limited Warranty, you know it’s designed to handle New Zealand conditions.

The solid polycarbonate roofing panels feature a dark grey tint and an anti-UV coating that blocks 98% of harmful UV rays, essential for protecting exposed skin and car paint finishes. Highly impact resistant, the panels are approximately 200 times stronger than glass of the same thickness and feature excellent insulating properties, creating a cool shady area on those hot Kiwi summer days.

The cantilever design is great for areas with minimal room for anchoring, making these structures extremely versatile. As well as a carport, it’s perfect for patio areas, next to the pool, over the deck or for making your barbecue area an all-weather, year round outdoor kitchen.

Installation should be in a sheltered location and we recommend using concrete footings, especially in windy areas. Concrete footings should measure W 50cm x D 50cm x H 60cm.

A stylish and versatile addition to any home, transform your driveway or outdoor entertainment area by ordering yours today.

Customer questions

Questions and answers

0 votes
q: Can you adjust the height of the poles if using the bolt direct footing or is it then 3 M tall?
a: You would need to cut the posts to size if you were using this fixing method and wanted the height to be less than 3m.

0 votes
q: What is the distance between posts? Can it be shortened?
a: The posts are designed to be installed at a set width (3500mm). The design could potentially be modified, however this is not covered in the manual so the end result would be down to the skill and knowledge of the installer. Modifications would not be covered by our warranty.

q: I live in christchurch. Do you need a council permit to install? Thanks Paul Wilson
a: In NZ carports have their own rules under the code. Generally speaking carports under 20 square meters are exempt from most rules. But as always, contact your local council and make sure you know exactly where you stand.

Cantilever carport

A year or two ago I purchased a cantilever cover for the express purpose of protecting my boat from the elements. My sons live off shore so when they came home this Xmas we got down to erecting it. My property is between Whangamata and Whitianga. Traffic over the holiday period is so hectic. Since we've erected this structure people have not only come of the street to make enquires but two guys, one from Pauanui, and a mate from Tairua both intend buying 2x2 of the cantilever cover for their boats also, that's not to say not only the foot traffic, but also vehicle personnel people who have taken the time to look at our structure may well follow suit.

Awesome! very pleased with it but does need a bit of expertise from someone with building knowledge and more than one pair of hands!

Overall it is a great product. I used it to shelter our back door area. I would have preferred a lighter tint but it will be ideal in summer. Also the instructions need to rewritten by an English speaker - not just translated from Chinese.

Has been up a month now. Had very strong northerly winds last week early in the morning which woke the household. Carport looked like it was going to take off and head to Invercargil but survived ok. All round I am happy with the carport and would highly recommend to others wanting a cost effective shelter solution.

Put up two of these. Instructions need to be read carefully. Setting up the posts needs to be accurate. Arrived on time with all the right bits and pieces. Looks good and great value for your dollars. Had winds from hell this week and the bugger is still there. Can't ask for more than that.

Great design. Instructions took a bit of figuring out by the builders but it looks great up. Easy to install once you've done it once!

This carport really gave us the WOW factor. Just love it and so do all our friends. It has added value to our property. It was harder to put the top together than expected. Definitely a 2 man job.

This product was just what I needed. My situation is very much like the one in the product photo--it covers half a double carpad. I buried it an extra 100mm deep as it is a high wind area and I also wanted to minimise shade on my garden. Construction was relatively easy, except the small stainless steel screws were inadequate and often snapped so I replaced them all with larger, stronger galvanised ones for the framing. Ok for securing polycarbon panels. Very happy with the product.

A very attractive carport when assembled. Needs two adults to assemble. Apply plenty of sealant at both ends of guttering. Accuracy is important when concreting in uprights. ( I was 1mm out and it caused minor problems.) Excellent shade to protect cars from sunlight. Not sure how well it would perform in a high wind area. I ran a rope over the top for cyclone Gita and it survived.
