Product overview

Get out of the sun and into the shade with this great retractable awning. Not only do awnings help make your outdoor areas look slick, but they also provide much needed shade for entertaining over the summer months.

The steel hand crank and retractable arm can be used to quickly adjust the shade desired at any time of day. The Aluminium frame and arms keep the awning strong, sturdy and corrosion free.

The unit attaches easily to the wall using the included brackets and heavy duty anchors. Easy install for solid brick/masonry. If installing on weatherboard or timber remember to make sure to secure to a stud or roof joist using coach screws (not included).

Comes with 1 year warranty.

Awning is very good no complaints at all, and it arrived in perfect condition. The only disappointment and my own fault for not checking, I assumed the awning would be 4m wide, but that is the width of the cassette so the awning itself is a bit short for the window. Much much better than before installing it though, and a very good price.

We have a small deck at the back of our house which needed cover. This was perfect. Our house is brick and it was easy to install. The quality of the awning was much better than other similar products we had seen in this price range. Great value for money.

Using the awning on an RV

2021-02-04T06:11:27+00:00

I purchased the awning to install on our 9 meter house bus. It is not designed for this purpose, but with some small modifications (add-ons) it works perfectly, and a lot cheaper than a official RV version. The modifications are to prevent the arms from sagging when stowed, and to prevent them from moving outwards when driving. See photos. Note some strong attachments are required, I installed wooden support inside the wall of the bus, and stainless bolts right through it.

Got 3 of these for our outdoor patio project. Quotes from others for similar sizes were $2-3K each. The quality for the price is great and made this project worth doing otherwise just too costly. Very happy. Will probably put a drain eyelet in the middle towards the outer edge as rain does pool in a heavy downpour with the shallow angle we have them at.

I live in the Wairarapa and in the afternoon the sun is so hot at the rear of my section I had to find a way of relief for humans but the sun was starting to make my carpet fade and the back room. Bought the shade sail retractable. I have a brick house and it fitted very well and it’s awesome. No more problems with carpet damage and also nice place to sit and relax. Long winding up or down handle makes those of us that are short easy.

about 1 year ago

2019-06-14T02:59:17+00:00

Arrived well packaged and we have hung it up. Note that all instructions and fittings provided are designed for BRICK/ CONCRETE WALL installation. I would think in NZ most would be timber installations. I provided my own coach screws and went through 50mm timber beams with big 40 x 40 flat washer and nut on the other side (I did have access) and attached the awing that way. Seems sturdy this way. Have not had much opportunity to use the awning but installation is simple and after drilling 6 holes and fitting the brackets, took less than 30 minutes to complete. Materials look good and durable but only time will tell.

After opening, i found the unit easy to install with the brackets provided, very easy to extend and wind in and provides all the shade that was needed. being able to get replacement shade material as well makes this unit a very good buy.

I am very pleased with our retractable awnings. We installed one last summer which enabled us to live on the deck in the hot afternoons and evenings and we then decided to install another further around on our very large deck to enjoy even more out door living. Not only do we get shade but additional privacy from the neighbors higher above our house which is a real bonus.

Having looked for a while for some awnings, they seemed out of reach due to their cost. I happened to stumble across the tradetested website and found these awnings for a fraction of the cost. So I purchased one. Checked it out, was impressed with its build an bought a further 2. Last weekend I finally had the time to erect all three over or decking area. Well, they look fantastic, are fit for purpose and they now allow us to use our deck in the middle of the day. Before it was far too hot, but now...golly. It's like having a new extension to the house. Even my friends and colleague at work are super impressed. Perfect for the upcoming holidays. Great stuff!!! Thanks!
