Questions and answers

q: How does the screen lock out keeping it ridged if you only pull it out 2.3 m
a: The roller is sprung, so once you clip it on to the pole or opposite wall it will stay taut.

q: Can you get this in a white screen?
a: No thats not an option we offer.

q: Hi, does the free standing pole retract just leaving a fitting in the deck or will we have to walk round the pole even though the awning is retracted. Thanks
a: Yes you can remove the pole, so just the fitting remains.

q: Hi what is the definition of a light breeze in an actual measurement? And what happens if a random gust above a the light breeze hits it. Does it break, or does it fall out of its floor base clip and the blind retracts to be used another day? Also if I’m able to tie the top of the end pole to the top of balustrade so could prevent extra strain on the base clip. Do you think it would handle more wind if I did that?
a: If you were using the free-standing pole rather than the clip on an opposite wall then yes this would go first. There is no set wind speed, but if it's enough to make you think twice then you probably know the answer - the same goes for gusts, there normally isn't just one big one on an otherwise windless day, you'd have warning. You could add bracing, but we can't really speak it it's effectiveness - its outside what this is designed for as sold.

q: Is it lockable like a fence?
a: No, it has no locking mechanism.

q: Do they come in longer than 3m,if so what size and how much cheers

q: Can you tell us the width of the part that fits on the wall. Thanks
a: The whole unit is approx 75mm wide, the bracket bolt holes are 48mm apart, so this is the minimum width of surface it can be attached to.

q: How much wind will these withstand?
a: Not a huge amount, a light breeze should be ok.

q: I want this as a divider for my living room, for separate the kitchen area from the lounge area.I do not want to fix one side to wall. Can this be free standing so that as and when I need this I can use it.
a: This is designed to be wall mounted, there are only 2 brackets to attach to the wall, so once the blind removed these would be the only visible part.

Excellent product. Took only 30 minutes to install only because i didn't have the right sized masonery drill bit. It looks very smart and we have used it 4 times to combat the easterly wind. It made sitting outside very enjoyable on a sunny day not having to pull stumps and go inside because of the cold easterly. Will send photos soon.

When installing this onto a flat concrete garage floor, i found that the outer stay (bar), flexed when tension is put on it from the shade, making the top of the shade slump. There is too mush movement in the base of the outer stay.

Ideal if there is no wind but we got caught out with a sudden gust which broke handle and pole. (Not very strong metal). Not covered if wind damaged, parts were going to take 4 months & a bit costly so replaced the whole unit.

Fanjio Northland

Retactable Side Screen

about 1 year ago


We purchased 3 of these late 2018.good quality for most part but have only used 2 as the free standing pole for screens when pulled out to latch into were not as advertised as in picture ,in steel and instead had end pole of entirely different makeup from photo and bent terribly when being used causing screen to bend.We have had to put extra strong wooden posts to latch screen in an alternate way and they are not attractive ,making the third one impossible to use as planned.Spoke to a couple of people at trade tested soon afterward to try and sort it out and all we got was send photos.Well actually it is up to them to check their stock!and their advertising .The stable pole may have been on the shipment previously but not the new stock.It is up to Trade Tested to deal with their suppliers and cheap replacement parts..not the customer to spend money and time not planned and get mucked around by requests from Trade Tested asking for emails and photographs.Why did they not examine their own advertising and products in store?The original free standing pole worked well as we had seen them in use at a friends.Quality assurance is the key Trade Tested and correct advertising.I would not recommend this otherwise good product at this time.The manufacturers have obviously tried to save "money"without telling their customers this case being Trade Tested .Not good enough as the end purchaser ends up with the problem and expense.Very disgruntled purchaser.

Aurora Auckland

Not as good as expected

over 2 years ago


We bought 2 of the side screens, the pole storage clip couldn't mount to the side, one broke and we just gave up trying for the 2nd set. The aluminium post was not sturdy to support the spring tension of the screen and when hooked on to the post, the post was pulled to one side. We tried wall mounting and we found the nuts/screws missing, my builder had to go out to buy them.

Ordered the blind on the Sunday and it was delivered on the Wednesday from Auckland to Hastings, speedy delivery, the blind in itself is awesome a great wind breaker, and the quality is excellent it was very easy to put together, my only wee negative comment is I wish that the brackets where all made of steel instead some where made of a plastic.

The product is well engineered and easy to install with various options to suit different situations. There is adequate extension length which is readily retrieved by the strong automatic return mechanism. The casing is an ovoid shape with a flat back which fits onto a wall/vertical surface and is very attractive and augments most anodysed aluminium door frames. The beige fabric screen is taught and allows sunlight to be diffused without excluding it altogether. It was well worth the extra 4 month wait for delivery. A very reasonable price too.

We are thrilled with our purchase. I was my husband's helper to put it up. Went between our house and an upright on the deck - looks so good everyone is remarking how good it looks and it acts as a windbreak and gives privacy from neighbours. We are recommending it to everyone who comes!

Robybob Southland

Just perfect

over 3 years ago


We brought this screen to give us privacy on our deck. We have a spa and the neighbours could look right into it. We didn't want anything permanent cutting out deck in half so this screen fitted the bill just right. The quality seems to be high and it is very easy to use. Easy to install once we threw the instructions away, we found them over complicated

Am totally delighted with this robust, well designed screen. Absolutely perfect for screening my outdoor laundry area from my guests' outdoor seating area. It is stylish and elegant and can just be lifted out of its retainer and rolled back into itself when I have no guests. Have two friends getting one too already! Lovely soft beige colour, matches my outdoor cushions beautifully. I recommend without hesitation.
