q: Is it good for blocking the rain too or it's mainly built for the sun? Can I keep it extended all the time? Would it survive through a storm?
a: Yes it's fine in the rain, but you need to retract it in windy/stormy weather.

q: Hi there, How does the awning retract and extend? Is there a winder and can it be powered? TIA.
a: This has a hand crank (removable) and gearbox - you could potentially rig it up to be powered by an external motor.

q: How much drop is there from top of roll to end of extension....I am thinking of the doors being unable to open when the awning is out

q: Would love one but we only have a 14cm space between the top of our sliding door and the eaves, would this be enough for the fitting?
a: Sorry, 14cm wont be quite enough, we recommend 25cm+ some of our customers have come up with clever ways of using brackets to mount these in tight spots around their eaves - Take a look at our customers photos for ideas!

The awning is wonderfully sturdy and we use it even more than we anticipated as it cuts out the sun's glare. We did have some difficulty with the instruction manual, which seemed unnecessarily complicated and didn't give any help with attaching to weatherboards.

Brilliant, good quality. Easy to put up, and the adjustable angle is just what like needed. Plus the cassette it winds back into stops the awning getting wet when not in use, so no mildew. Highly recommended.

We installed the awning over an upstairs window close to a downpipe. It was simple to design the install and to do it. It was possible to wriggle the fit to negotiate the downpour and other constraints. We can easily operate it using the supplied handle through an upstairs window.

I am very happy with this product. Was looking for awning for my new deck and local companies quote me 3-4k so I decided to do it my self. Was bit worried as it was shipped from Auckland and not sure about quality but I was positive with the quality after so many good review. Its solid and good looking product. I grab some longer nut bolts from a hardware shop and its looks amazing. I am definitely buying another one as well.

I was disappointed that the front of my awning had a seam in the middle, as two others I saw had none. I felt like I got a second for full price. Otherwise it is great.

Excellent quality, very well priced, Needed minor adjustments once installed. If mounting on brick some innotive fabrication is needed as shown on photo's. The telescopic support bars are not included and are not needed unless windy conditions. These supports are easily made with square section aluminum tubing if needed.

Retractable Awning 3x2m

This awning has been the perfect solution for our deck which had a balcony extending over it. We attached the awning to the end of the balcony giving us all the shade and protection we need for summer. It was easy to install, just requiring another person to hold the other end while installing. Compared to other awnings, this product is great value for money.

Very good product, easy to install even with the need to have some brackets made up. The instructing say the holes on the mounting brackets are 99mm centre to centre. They're not, more like 103mm. Nothing that a little filing couldn't fix.

Excellent finish and good quality item. Instructions are for a flat masonry wall and would benefit from advice on installing on weatherboard. EG install packers to flatten the surface, use long galvanised carriage bolts and ONLY drill through into studs. The instructions are ok but fig 2 is incorrect. Bolt spacing is 105mm (from memory) not 99mm.

Product critique

about 1 year ago


A great product, easy to put up and wind out, and looks good. Suggestions for instructions: five unnecessary pages makes it look hard and complicated. Should be two separate pages, one for timber framed houses, another for brick houses. Your attached bolts are for brick. Why assume that? In NZ most houses are timber, therefore require coach house bolts, and probably a board 150x30 by required length bolted to wall. Keep it simple.

We looked at awnings from and got Quotes from different companies, who seemed to make a song and dance about how hard it would be to put up an awning. Bought this awning as it seamed to be the same spec as the awnings the companies were offering. Very easy to install, but it in timber, rather than the masonry attachments it comes with. Works well, looks good, job done at less than 25% of the quotes we received. Easy

We will be purchasing another one in the near future to cover the dining room area window. Highly recommend!

Very easy to install, and easy to wind and unwind, the only negative thing I would say is the frill bit on front of the awning, it can be taken off but if you do this it exposes the metal and that opens it to the weather, we decided to leave well alone, for the price it’s brilliant and does the job.

I was surprised at the quality of this awning. Similar awnings I checked online were five to six time more expensive, so I didn't know what to expect when the awning arrived in its box. It only took an hour to install with the help of a friend, and I'm in my late seventies.

We've enjoyed two weeks of shade now, the awning has proved to be robust, withstanding moderate - gusty wind (where our cantilever umbrella has had to remain down). Apparently installation is for masonry-only walls, so we had to buy 4 new bolts and have attached it to our weatherboard successfully. Installation was otherwise easy. The crank works well, very easy to open but harder work cranking it back in, too difficult for our kids to do. It's worth highlighting that the metal is powder coated in white, a shame for a Charcoal coloured awning as it does stand out more than necessary, however 3/4's of this is covered once it's installed. Shame about the wavy white edging on the flap too! But trims aside, the awning has served it's purpose well and we're considering a second one for another seating area. Great product for the price.

We are pleased with this awning although it tends to clonck in rather small amount of wind. Haven't found out why yet. Fastening bolts are for a masonry wall, extra care is required using couch screws into a timber frame. Looks good when up and folds away nicely when finished
