Get the most from your outdoor areas whatever the weather, with this beautifully crafted freestanding patio cover.

Create a sheltered spot next to the pool, add some protection to the barbecue area, turn your deck into an extension of your living room or take a spa in the snow; whatever you need a cover for, this 3m x 3m free-standing unit is up to the job.

The powder coated aluminium construction is guaranteed to look great for years to come and is designed to stand up to most sheltered New Zealand conditions. The stylish Ironsand finish fits well with most outdoor areas and will definitely have the neighbours asking where you bought it from.

The 8mm twin-wall polycarbonate roof panels are UV stabilised to prevent yellowing and the twin-wall construction gives superior temperature control, keeping things cool in the summer by blocking UV rays, while still allowing plenty of light through. When the weather does turn, the built-in gutters feature hidden outlets through the foot of each pole, letting the water disperse without the need for ugly pipework everywhere.

Installation is straightforward, while maintenance is minimal, leaving you to get on with enjoying maximum time entertaining friends and family, or just watching the world go by from the shady comfort of your new patio cover.

It’s a stylish, sturdy and versatile way to maximise your time spent enjoying your outdoor areas, order yours today.

a: The height can be altered, however this is not covered in the instructions and it is not something we provide detailed guidance on. The end result is the responsibility of and dependent on, the skill and knowledge of the person installing.

q: Hi, is it possible to install onto a grass e.g. around the edge of a paved area? or is the only option to bolt down to hardstanding - concrete, paving, or decking?
a: That's not something we recommend, there is nowhere near enough stability for the loads. You need to bolt to hardstanding - you could make concrete pads at each corner to minimise impact?

q: Any bigger sizes available?
a: This is our largest freestanding size.

q: is it okay for high wind zone? thanks
a: This is sturdy, however it's not designed specifically for what an engineer would classify a high wind zone.
By Trade Tested on February 7, 2019

q: Are these easy to take down and winter to put up again in summer? Or would this limit there lenght of life?
a: If they're bolted down then it should be fairly straightforward to take it down, however it's not designed specifically as a temporary structure. As you say, this would probably reduce the lifespan, plus it would be easy to damage a panel.

q: Are there kits available to join 2 or more of these together?
a: No this isn't something we have available.

q: What is the maximum amount of wind they can withstand?
a: They're pretty sturdy (check out some of our customer reviews on this and other sizes) , however they are not designed specifically for what an engineer would classify a high wind zone.

q: Can this be painted?
a: Generally it is hard to paint over powder coating, so we can't recommend, but if you talk to a paint specialist they may have some ideas.

I have three of these now. They are easy to put up, only take a few hours to put together. Pretty easy to follow instructions. I have modified a couple of them to make a longer one and attached them to the roof.

Great patio cover

3 months ago


It’s very elegant and is a great rain cover for our outdoor furniture. It’s higher and brighter under it than we expected. We got it installed by a professional and glad we did. We have festoon lights all around and it looks amazing at night. Love it. It’s great for rain shade, not so much for sunshine (yes for UV, no for brightness) but that works for us as it doesn’t block the light coming indoors.

Easy to assemble - apart from a few screws that will not fully go in, and the polycarbonate sheets are difficult to slot in side by side. I had to trim some of the sheets to make them fit.

Easy to assemble. Alignment was quite a challenge. Haven't put the roof panel "locks" in. Seems very difficult to do. Overall very happy with the result.

Api Taupo

Not happy

7 months ago


The add for this product says that all of the poles holding up the patio act as drains and yet only one side has holes for the water to drain down two of the legs ,at the other end there are on drainage holes and their is no drain so the water just collects and pours back into the patio ,if you have put up pvc curtains as I did the water pours on the inside and not down the legs /drainpipes.

Really happy with product once erected. Some parts did not go together as simply as instructions indicated. Quality of some of the fasteners was poor. Overall once completed looks great and provides good shade and cover.

Recently bought this. As I am useless at putting anything together I thought I would need help to make it up but after opening the cartons I found it was very simple to put together and it was up in three hours. Very good quality.
