Product overview

This free-standing, cantilevered patio cover 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.

A top quality, high intensity alloy frame is powder coated for durability and combines with galvanised steel ground anchors for 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 patio cover, it’s perfect as a carport for your pride and joy, 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 patio, driveway or outdoor entertainment area by ordering yours today.

q: Hi, we are thinking of putting one of these on our deck. The deck is high off the ground with good access underneath. How should we attach the legs to the deck to ensure the strongest way is used please? Thanks.
a: We sell a base plate set as an add on option, however your deck would require significant reinforcement, with multiple variables to consider. We would recommend talking to a builder to explore mounting options for your specific application.

q: Does the kit come with the mounting plates that go into the concrete.
a: No as most people will use concrete footings, however you can add the base plate set as an extra if this is not an option for you. You can view this in the 'frequently bought together' section underneath the product photos.

q: Hi. Do the poles have to be installed in exact set positions under the patio roof, or can you move the poles individually a bit left or right as required to avoid blocking doors, etc?
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 can’t see any mention of council permits, are they required? The person who joined two together must have needed a permit surely? And how strong is the steel in height winds?
a: Usually council consent is not required, however we always recommend that you consult with your local council as to whether you require consent as all applications differ. In regard to handling high winds, we have yet to have a failure due to winds, these can stand up to a lot of abuse!

I used the cantilevered patio as a carport. It's original dimensions are bigger than the space I had available so I cut it down to 2.6m by 5.0m and reduced the height to 1.6m at the lower side to match the adjacent fence. The modifications were simple to achieve and added half a day to the assembly time of 1 day for three people. Overall I am really happy with ease of installation and how good it looks.

Have attached 2 end for end to make 10m Very good units, look good,fairly easy to erect Canopies sit out over roof but have made 2 brackets per unit to secure them under the eave. Stops the open side from flapping in wind Bought joining kit, no instructions, can’t for the life of me figure out how it would work. Waste of time I just bolted the joining side rails together with suitable bolts & washers & run a strip of sealer along join. Secure & doesn’t leak. Cover panels are quite dark, do cut out a lot of light during winter Overall, very pleased

Good unit, instructions could be better. I swapped some of the screws supplied for pop rivets. Supplied screws would be better square drive as opposed to the phillips ones that come with it. Have made brackets to secure open side to the building, will reduce movement in wind Cover panels are quite dark, would be nice to have 2-3 shade options. Overall, looks good, reasonably strong, am getting a 2nd unit to go beside existing one

Bought this for some shade on our patio, was reluctant to spend the money to start with but I am really pleased with the result. If I had one small improvement it would be better instructions around the main roof assembly, takes a bit of nutting out.

We are so wrapped with the unit and it certainly does serve the purpose. Price wise, fantastic. Unit on front of our home cost $8.5k, we are in total shock for the same thing !

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.

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.

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.

There was a lot of scratches on the powder coated alloy and disappointing scratches on the poly carbonate roofing , as there was no damage to the outside packaging i guess it was poor handling before packaging. square drive screws would have been better. instruction good. although i am a builder, would be a good idea to suggest to square up main roof structure by measuring the diagonals before all the screws are put in .otherwise very pleased with the carport Cheers Wayne Whitianga

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.
