Exactly what was needed on our deck. It has extended our outdoor dinning and living area by 12 mtrs square. Very happy with purchase! Just a suggestion...it doesn't have curtains with it, and they aren't a stock item at Trade Tested. I had to make one for privacy...would be nice to have that option though :-)
Great Roof system

Purchased this on Trade Tested website without even looking. Initially was a bit skeptical whether it is a good product or not but it turned out to be a great roof system. It withstood strong winds in Wellington and didn't leak through the roof in heavy rain.. I would recommend this to anybody without a doubt. Its a great addition to our backyard. Now we are spending more time in our backyard under this.

Throw the instruction manual away and pre-assemble all the parts first. Stand the frame work up and centre where you want it to go so that everything is straight. Draw around the four corner uprights and then move each upright and screw down the base plate. Position the upright onto the base plate and screw it together. Everything fitted perfectly and looks good.

What a pleasure it was to unwrap all the boxes and put this system together. Two major things: 1. Very good instructions and 2. Very well packaged product. A friend and I managed to put the whole roof up in two days and it was so easy by just following the well written instructions. This is a product well worth the money with a very high standard in quality and ease of operation. Well done guys!!

The system was easy enough to put together, it looks great! We did hunt for screws and washers that had come loose. My partner is a builder so he braced it better himself and we have had two very gusty windy days and it has held in place. Overall happy with it, it looks great. Would have loved a bigger one.
Great product, minor points to note
about 1 month ago2020-11-27T07:04:58+00:00
Overall really happy with the product, just a couple of tweaks would make it perfect: - the installation guide has one critical step regarding fitting the louvre fins which is very hard to figure out, more detail in the picture for it please - there aren’t enough of the black plastic grommets, they cost nothing so not sure why you couldn’t be a bit more liberal with them - the bolts for fixing the structure to the ground are cheap and crappy, the tops of two of them sheared off completely

We're delighted with our new louvre system. We took less than a whole day to set up - need a couple of people for some of this. It works perfectly, is waterproof and very sturdy (we've had stormy weather to put it to the test). Great that it has two separately operating louvres so you can customise the light.

Trade Tested 100% for me..
3 months ago2020-10-20T21:15:51+00:00
We've just put up a 4 x 3 mtr gazebo (louvred) from Trade Tested.. We did our homework, and the equivalent size from a major retail store was $1000 difference in the retail price.. Even taking my ''Gold Card'' discount into account, their price was still $600 dearer than TT.. I have since been back to buy other items from the store, and talking to other people looking at the Louvre, telling them to check out the Trade Tested site and compare the products.. I would recommend Trade Tested 100 %..
Value ? Well it's great bang for your buck - but how long will it last?
3 months ago2020-10-19T21:26:50+00:00
Well it's great bang for your buck - but will it last? Compared to other solutions on the market this unit is a 1/5th of the price. The components are ok. Aluminium mostly which is good. Some components were loose or had come undone in transit, one of the posts had no machined threads (see pic)- so those had to be remedied with a drill and dye. Wind load is pretty low - but is should only be the blades that depart if exposed to a high wind. The winding mechanism is light and probably the weakest point. Design-wise its pretty good - ideally the internal post supports would go deeper into the beams for further structural rigidity and could eliminate the painful to install, corner detail. So if you can be exposed to higher winds you might look elsewhere. Expect a bit of DIY with the install (the manual is OK but you have to spend time with the language used). Check back in a year or too to see the real outcome - Otherwise this is a Great object at a great price.

Last weekend we installed our new gazebo, it was relatively easy apart from getting it squared-off which was actually our fault. We found the most useful piece of kit was our rubber mallet which enabled us to put in the little plastic plugs on top of the louvers very easily - I would recommend having a rubber mallet when doing the installation but overall the installation was easy and didn't cause a divorce!
Great addition to our outdoor area

Louvre roof is fairly easy to assemble, took me 9 hours start to finish totally on my own. One hold up was the screws that secure the pivoting mechanism had unwound during transit maybe and 2 were missing so needed a trip to the store to get replacements. This is the one area that could probably be improved as it seems these screws need to be left a little loose to let the louvres open and close freely otherwise the quality of the product seems great and is good value for money compared to many other brands.

We got a quote to have one made to order in NZ and they wanted $24,000 so this is pretty cheap and not too hard to put up with just two people. Instructions aren't too clear but once figured out the fins are easy to fit. The plastic grommet that locks each fin into the frame is a little flimsy, a rivet behind it would add strength. Would say it is shower proof but doesn't cope with heavy rain. Overall pleased with it.
5 months ago2020-08-22T02:14:39+00:00
Such a great price and looks amazing. Took about 6 hours to put together, putting the louvres in takes a while but much faster with a helper. Took about an hour to work out how to fix the first static louvre, as people have mentions the instructions are great apart from this stage but one you work that out it’s simple enough.

The superstructure goes together with relative ease. It’s easy with just two people to assemble using a couple of ladders at the very least and a battery drill with socket attachment (not provided – not even an Allen key) to wind in the machine screws quickly. Using a picnic type table makes it easier with preassembly and substitutes plank and ladders when fitting the louvre foils. The pivoting brackets that the louvre foils attach to should be checked that they are screwed in properly without tightening it fully. We found some of these unwound a lot and one had fallen out in transit which took some finding the screw and washers. I’ll try and add some pictures to make the foil fitting a bit clearer as we struggled with this and the instructions are not very clear. However, once understood fitting the louvres is easy for one person to do. If you are in a windy area I reckon you could drill and fit either a 1/8th or 5/32nd rivet behind each plastic grommet in the foil to make it more secure. The grommet fixing is about the only thing that lets the ensemble disappointing. The assembly is well engineered and it’s an area that could benefit from a little more thought. Getting the fins right can be challenging. Fitting them with the unit cranked open so they are vertical work best. Use long nose pliers to remove the grommets that buckle if you have to but don’t dispose of them as there are no spares – try to reuse where they go in more easily. When fitting the angle braces on the side of the posts, using a quick grip clamp and predrilling the holes with a 3mm bit makes installing the tex screws with a battery driver and bit much easier. Note: there are no spare tex screws either, we were one short and had to improvise :( We swapped out the coach screws for fitting the structure for masonry 8m x 65mm anchor bolts. An 8mm masonry bit was used to drill the concrete. The gearing is really pleasing, quick to open or close with little effort.

Yay I finally have it up. Firstly it should be noted that it is 3.9 metre square and not 4 as suggested in the main advertising. Easy to put up and looks good. There was only one exception and that relates to the louvres. They were awkward and difficult to correctly align. And then there was the need to put in the plastic grommets which wasn't the easiest thing to do. There are some rust spots appearing on some stainless steel screws which I wil be watching.

Purchased 2 of these just before the lockdown, have attached them under the eves, & removed those posts almost all the way up, used the provided sealant to fill the drainage holes, also had to shorten the posts by about 40-50mm off the bottom, bolted the two together, but there is a small gap between them that I'll have to make a flashing for. Quite Pleased with the way it turned out.
