Questions and answers

0 votes
q: My patio is paved with 400x400x50mm firth pavers. Can I bolt plates directly to a paver?
a: Potentially, if the pavers have been concreted in, otherwise they may not be stable enough.

q: Is canopy changeable in case of wear and tear?
a: Yes it can be changed.

q: Hi, is the canopy available in other colours?

q: I live in a very high wind zone. Is this pergola suitable for that environment?
a: As long as this is securely fastened to the ground (ideally bolted to concrete) then yes this can stand up to high winds but the awning must be stored in the retracted position when not in use.

0 votes
q: Hi, do you have side curtains for the pergola? A clear PVC side curtain that can be retracted when not required would be great.
a: We don't have curtains specifically for this product, however our Outdoor Patio Blinds should do the trick. You can find them in the 'Awnings & Pergolas' category.

q: Hi there. The dimensions say 395x300, is that measurement to the widest point ie the angled bits of the rafters? Or to the outside of the posts? Could you please clarify what each of those dimensions are as we have quite a tight space. Thanks so much
a: This is the overall size, so to the widest points.

q: Hi,can you tell me the dimension from centre of post to centre of post. I'm looking to fix to a concrete pad thats just about 4m wide so want to make sure the base plates will fit on the pad. Cheers
a: Centre to centre would be - W 3630mm x D 2630mm. Feel free to get in contact with our sales team on 0800 800 880 or and we'll be happy to send you the assembly manual.

q: Hello, I need the posts to go into the ground on either side of a paved area, not on top of it. Can they be fixed into the ground and how would that work please? Thank you.
a: We don't recommend fixing this to non-sealed ground, it will not be stable enough. It needs to be bolted to a hard surface using the base plates provided, or you could use traditional concrete footings, although this would reduce the overall height. Check out our customer photos below for some great ideas.

q: How far down does the canopy hang when open?
a: Approximately 30cm.

q: Hi, how suitable is this in the rain (heavy or light) would the water sit there or would it flow one way or other?
a: Light rain would be fine, however it would pool eventually, so we recommend retracting the canopy when it rains. Perhaps one of our patio covers might be a better option?

q: I'm not good with the measurements It states 3x4m, does the shade sail extend out 3m or 4m? I have a 4m wall with eaves I need the sail to go under, but only want it to extend out 3m.
a: Hi, when installed, this will extend 3m outwards from the wall, it will span 4m across the wall and be 3m high. you can however install it in any orientation you choose.

q: Hi - I’m really interested in the pergola but I’m not tall and I can’t see how the canopy is moved to retract and open. And secured when it is where it’s wanted. Do you have to get up to the top to to do this ? Do you have photos to show this please ? Many thanks ! Frances
a: There is a pulley and cable system that ties off on the post, so you can keep your feet firmly on the ground.

The pergola has worked perfectly and coincidentally was he perfect size for my new Kwila deck. I have managed to get at least one screw in each footing into the bearers so the whole thing is nice and stable. I have attached a picture of the finished product.

Excellent Pergola

This is the first Trade Tested product that we have purchased. It arrived in a single box, including all parts and instructions. It took two half days to install with one other person helping. It took longer than expected to install because of a small error in the instructions - wrong size drill for the base anchors, but once that was sorted it went very smoothly. We are very happy with the end product - looks like a very good finish and everything fitted perfectly. A bit of noise when its windy but that's fine.

I'm really happy with this product. It has added lots of value to our outdoor area, and no one wants to bother with umbrellas! It was easy to put up in a day with 2ppl. Concrete corner bases easy to create. it seems very sturdy and we are in windy wellington. I have added some cheap velcro straps so it does not rattle around as much when the awning is extended.

We looked hard for a cost effective awning that was robust, effective and affordable for a rental property. The tenants are really happy, it looks great. They said when the awning is pulled across the house is cooler. We love it's retractable and that we can purchase a replacement canvas. The uprights seem like they'll last. The tenants installed & added a brace as they thought the uprights could be more stable. The colour looks sharp.

This item does the job but a little wind and it is very noisy. The extra piece that goes over the cover when it is pulled in has insufficient Velcro so will not stay on if a bit of wind We do like the product but can see lots of improvements needed.

Pleased with product although the handyman found that the instructions were printed too small and sparse on detail. He had to cut 100cm off poles to slide under the 2.3cm height from concrete pad to eave measurement which would have been easier with a wall mounted article but I did not wish to attach anything to the exterior walls. The shade tucks under the eaves when not in use and open structure does not darken adjourning lounge. The 3m width was taken care of by placing two concrete footings in the garden. I am pleased with the colour, looks, delivery to door and reasonable price. I look forward to a sheltered outdoor family lunch on Christmas Day no matter what the weather.

A great free standing pergola which doesn't impede the garden vision. It is very strong and durable and allows plenty of seating space. When windy it does rattle somewhat. We are very pleased with our purchase thank you.

Erection was fairly simple, but could be a lot easier if instructions had been better. The images were very small leading to redoing certain stages. Erected on wooden deck with reinforcing so we will see how it goes. Very good value and does what it is intended for.

Great for shade

Bought two of these to shade a large table and outdoor seating in a very sunny patio. Although instructions were in 'chinglish', and had had some errors in them (typos around lengths/widths), we worked this out and managed to put them up in a few hours. Am very pleased with the final result , pergolas are practical, and help to cool everything down.

It's great but would recommend domes rather than Velcro for the top cover as it blows off in light wind

Very happy with the purchase, it doing what we intended it to do and that was to give us an area that we could relax in on our deck. The only downside would be the material that sits atop of the retractable cover, due to this only being held on by velcro we saw this addition to the design faulty. We will be looking to make additions to it by putting a screen across the back for privacy and maybe one down one side, otherwise very happy with purchase

A great solution for shade when you need it

over 2 years ago


This light-weight pergola was the perfect solution for our patio where we need shade in summer but not in winter. It is a big job to install, especially if you have to drill holes in concrete to bolt the posts down, but it all went together well. We were a bit worried about how it would cope with strong winds as the pamphlet says it's not suitable for very windy places. Since it's been up we've had some fairly windy days and there haven't been any problems. The only thing we felt could be improved on is the velcro fastening for the cover which we think is a bit inadequate, and we may put something else on to hold it down, as it does flap up and down in the wind. But otherwise we are very happy with our purchase, and the very reasonable price. Definitely recommend this product.

It was easy to assemble and install, and It looks great. It is bit of a shame that the canopy sail can not really be left in use in the rain as it after a while the sail fills with water. The velcro rain cover seems way to loose, as on rainy days the rain cover also fills with water. Otherwise I am happy.

A perfect shade solution

We needed a shade solution to go around a bay window at the front of the house. The pergola went together easily with good instructions. Found that the sail flapped around a bit in high winds, but that was not unexpected. Sorted it with 3 strips of velcro to put a bit of tension on the sail, and all was good. We are thrilled with the result.

I found this fairly easy to install despite the terrible instructions !It looks really good and seems good quality for the money . My only negative is the rattling that the metal runners on the side make in even a slight breeze , I have ended up cable tying each one in place to stop the noise which is okay as I don't really need to open and close it .

Was keen on this from description. During putting it together I found the instructions poor with not a lot of guidance. The pergola looks good, however it pretty light weight and I would not recommend anyone lean against the uprights. .they're pretty flimsy. I would not trust the roof in much wind either. . Very average. ..

Henry D Hawke's Bay

A bit light

The pergola was easy to install and everything went together ok. However when it was up I fould it to be a bit wobbly. Because it is not braced in any way it can easily sway side to side, not helped by the small brackets under each foot, most of the weight being on the top. Possibly due to the light material? Anyway I had to solve the problem by bracing two opposite corners against the house with angle iron to give it stability.

Product looks good however from an assembly point the instructions are terrible they are bearly readable. Instances where holes are required to secure to patio recommended sizes are wrong. In its current form we would not recommend unless you are a tradie or a knowledgeable DIY person.

Received our pergola just before labour weekend so it was a good long weekend project. On first inspection the finish looked good. The powder coating has a nice finish and looked to be well done. All the pieces are letter coded and the instructions seemed straight forward although the pictures could be a bit bigger and clearer in a couple of places. The only problems we had with construction were pretty minor, not all the washers were of the correct size so could only use just over half of them and the instructions said to drill a 12mm hole in the concrete but we were provided with 14mm bolts so I had to rush back to Mitre 10 before they closed and buy a 14mm drill bit. Other than that the construction went quite smoothly. Once on place however we found another couple of issues. The rope system only pulls the middle of the shade tight. The side are free to move back and forth in the slightest of breezes and this causes the sliders on each side to create a surprising amount of noise. A piece of string at each corner improved that but does make the process of putting the shade out and back a bit more of a hassle. All in all its a reasonably sturdy pergola with a nice finish. The shade sail itself is thick enough to stop the Central Otago sun but the running system is a bit cheap and noisy. Basically you get what you pay for. With that said I would recommend this pergola to people as long as they know what to expect.

Its a great product. Looks great works well and good quality. My only negatives are the instructions are terrible and almost impossible to read, the other thing is it could do with more bracing in the corners to make it more stable/solid. I wouldn't want anyone to fall into it.
