Product overview

Create the stunning, multi-use outdoor area you’ve always wanted with this sleek, architectural louvre roof.

The integrated crank system allows you to easily and smoothly open or adjust the louvres. Open it right up and enjoy that perfect Kiwi summers day or keep it closed when the weather is changeable - the integrated gutters and internal downpipes make this roof system truly all-weather.

The crisp charcoal powder coat finish and contemporary style blends well with most outdoor areas, while the straightforward instructions make this a great DIY upgrade. The built-in gutters feature hidden outlets through the foot of each pole, letting the water disperse without the need for ugly pipework everywhere.

With its strong aluminium frame, louvres and galvanised fittings this roof system is built to last, while being easy to clean and maintain.

Each bank of louvres is operated by a separate gear crank system, so you really can tailor the shade to your needs. Keep one half cool and shady, then open the other side to vent the BBQ.

Questions and answers

q: I have a deck near a bedroom. If it is windy are there an rattles from the louvres?
a: We haven't had any feedback to this effect, the louvres are seated in bushings to dampen vibration, so as long as they are assembled correctly it won't be an issue.

q: What is the wind rating? Are these made in NZ? If not, where?

q: When closed, how waterproof are the louvres? For example, on a warm, calm, rainy day, could you sit outside under the louvres and not get dripped on?

q: 1) To what angle do the Louvres open? Do they open up to 90 degrees from horizontal or more. 2) can the Louvres be installed in either direction, that is if say the roof system is installed in an east/west orientation, can the Louvres be installed so they open to the east to let in the morning sun?
a: They open up to 90, yes you can install facing whichever way you want.

q: Are the nuts and bolts, corner brackets and louvre pivot mechanism manufactured in aluminium, stainless steel or regular steel.
a: Fixing and bolts are either hot-dip galv or stainless, the corner brackets are aluminium, the mechanisms are - aluminum for gearbox, zinc alloy for the gearbox connector, stainess steel for push and pull parts.

q: Hello, We have a patio with pavers that are about 50-60mm thick. Can those be used for the base as I am not sure if they are too thin and might crack when drilled into etc?
a: It really depends on what they're made of and how well secured, so big flagstones would be a yes, cobblestones iffy, most other stone could crack - we would suggest talking to a specialist familiar with your particular material.

q: What is the maximum wind rating for these? I live in the Marlborough sounds which is a high wind rating area and have personally witnessed some extreme gusts during storms there.

q: This looks like what I need on my patio.....could you explain how it should be installed in the ground. I have a concrete/pebbled outdoor flooring area.
a: You would need to drill into the concrete and install using Excalibur or dyna bolts.
By Trade Tested on February 13, 2020

q: If the posts have internal gutters, how does the water drain if these are dyna bolted to concrete?
a: There are outlets at the foot (on the side not underneath), you can see these in picture 4.

q: I am looking at just using the roof of this to put onto an existing pergola. Basically the roof of this unit will be sitting on top of the exisitng pergola rafters. Is this possible? Obviously will need to do a downpipe of some kind seeing the existing pergola doesn't have internal piping
a: Your major issue is that the uprights also form the corner of the roof, so you will need to cut the posts and use the top section in order to create the roof structure.

q: Can your louvre system be integrated into a concrete tile roof on an approximate 30 degree roof pitch - with louvres running on the roof pitch angle (not horizontal) ?

q: Would the posts be able to be cut to adjust the height to mount on side to steps? Also can the system be simply screwed into timber decking without any further foundations?

By Trade Tested on March 26, 2020
0 votes
q: Can these be wall mounted one side with slight modifications?
a: Yes they could be, however it depends how you define slight! You would need to cut the posts at one end - as these also act as the frame corner, plug the drainage holes and work out a mounting method for your application.

We are really happy with our purchase. It wasn't the easiest of things to put together and is definitely a two person construction to start with. I could not be happier with Trade Tested as a company. They kept us informed on a regular basis as to the status of our order. Will definitely use them again.

Its standing up very well to the wind, rain and sunshine in Southland. It has extended my north facing kitchen even more. We have had breakfast, lunches and dinners on the deck under shade. Love it

Purchased this on Trade Tested website without even looking. Initially was a bit skeptical whether it is a good product or not but it turned out to be a great roof system. It withstood strong winds in Wellington and didn't leak through the roof in heavy rain.. I would recommend this to anybody without a doubt. Its a great addition to our backyard. Now we are spending more time in our backyard under this.

Kev Auckland

Throw the instruction manual away and pre-assemble all the parts first. Stand the frame work up and centre where you want it to go so that everything is straight. Draw around the four corner uprights and then move each upright and screw down the base plate. Position the upright onto the base plate and screw it together. Everything fitted perfectly and looks good.

What a pleasure it was to unwrap all the boxes and put this system together. Two major things: 1. Very good instructions and 2. Very well packaged product. A friend and I managed to put the whole roof up in two days and it was so easy by just following the well written instructions. This is a product well worth the money with a very high standard in quality and ease of operation. Well done guys!!

The system was easy enough to put together, it looks great! We did hunt for screws and washers that had come loose. My partner is a builder so he braced it better himself and we have had two very gusty windy days and it has held in place. Overall happy with it, it looks great. Would have loved a bigger one.

Great product, minor points to note

5 months ago


Overall really happy with the product, just a couple of tweaks would make it perfect: - the installation guide has one critical step regarding fitting the louvre fins which is very hard to figure out, more detail in the picture for it please - there aren’t enough of the black plastic grommets, they cost nothing so not sure why you couldn’t be a bit more liberal with them - the bolts for fixing the structure to the ground are cheap and crappy, the tops of two of them sheared off completely

Trade Tested 100% for me..

We've just put up a 4 x 3 mtr gazebo (louvred) from Trade Tested.. We did our homework, and the equivalent size from a major retail store was $1000 difference in the retail price.. Even taking my ''Gold Card'' discount into account, their price was still $600 dearer than TT.. I have since been back to buy other items from the store, and talking to other people looking at the Louvre, telling them to check out the Trade Tested site and compare the products.. I would recommend Trade Tested 100 %..

HandyAndy Auckland

Value ? Well it's great bang for your buck - but how long will it last?

6 months ago


Well it's great bang for your buck - but will it last? Compared to other solutions on the market this unit is a 1/5th of the price. The components are ok. Aluminium mostly which is good. Some components were loose or had come undone in transit, one of the posts had no machined threads (see pic)- so those had to be remedied with a drill and dye. Wind load is pretty low - but is should only be the blades that depart if exposed to a high wind. The winding mechanism is light and probably the weakest point. Design-wise its pretty good - ideally the internal post supports would go deeper into the beams for further structural rigidity and could eliminate the painful to install, corner detail. So if you can be exposed to higher winds you might look elsewhere. Expect a bit of DIY with the install (the manual is OK but you have to spend time with the language used). Check back in a year or too to see the real outcome - Otherwise this is a Great object at a great price.

Last weekend we installed our new gazebo, it was relatively easy apart from getting it squared-off which was actually our fault. We found the most useful piece of kit was our rubber mallet which enabled us to put in the little plastic plugs on top of the louvers very easily - I would recommend having a rubber mallet when doing the installation but overall the installation was easy and didn't cause a divorce!

Great product and quality. Easily assembled by 2 people. Looks very smart. Transformed the area. We used it to create a covered spa area. Louvers do actually keep the rain out and add to the uneakness and flexibility of this product.

The Louvre roof system has added another room to my home. I can now relax on my outdoor furniture ‘rain or shine’. I’m looking forward to summer outdoor living. I employed Kitset Assembly Services to assemble to unit, it took less than a morning to complete. Brilliant !!

Great quality, looks great and was fairly easy to put up. The little black louvre clips are a bit of a pain, slowly adding those. Looking forward to summer.

Louvre roof is fairly easy to assemble, took me 9 hours start to finish totally on my own. One hold up was the screws that secure the pivoting mechanism had unwound during transit maybe and 2 were missing so needed a trip to the store to get replacements. This is the one area that could probably be improved as it seems these screws need to be left a little loose to let the louvres open and close freely otherwise the quality of the product seems great and is good value for money compared to many other brands.

Good planning and help makes this a good Saturday job. Erected and complete by dinner time. Had guests over the next day, great for entertaining and shade from the hot summer sun. Also purchased the Sandpiper Rattan Lounge Suite with an extra arm chair.

We got a quote to have one made to order in NZ and they wanted $24,000 so this is pretty cheap and not too hard to put up with just two people. Instructions aren't too clear but once figured out the fins are easy to fit. The plastic grommet that locks each fin into the frame is a little flimsy, a rivet behind it would add strength. Would say it is shower proof but doesn't cope with heavy rain. Overall pleased with it.

Such a great price and looks amazing. Took about 6 hours to put together, putting the louvres in takes a while but much faster with a helper. Took about an hour to work out how to fix the first static louvre, as people have mentions the instructions are great apart from this stage but one you work that out it’s simple enough.

Easy to install couple of tips The end with the winder on it should face south if you want the blades to open to the northern sun and suggest you leave the screws at the top of the posts loose until the 2 horizontal roof beams are installed

The superstructure goes together with relative ease. It’s easy with just two people to assemble using a couple of ladders at the very least and a battery drill with socket attachment (not provided – not even an Allen key) to wind in the machine screws quickly. Using a picnic type table makes it easier with preassembly and substitutes plank and ladders when fitting the louvre foils. The pivoting brackets that the louvre foils attach to should be checked that they are screwed in properly without tightening it fully. We found some of these unwound a lot and one had fallen out in transit which took some finding the screw and washers. I’ll try and add some pictures to make the foil fitting a bit clearer as we struggled with this and the instructions are not very clear. However, once understood fitting the louvres is easy for one person to do. If you are in a windy area I reckon you could drill and fit either a 1/8th or 5/32nd rivet behind each plastic grommet in the foil to make it more secure. The grommet fixing is about the only thing that lets the ensemble disappointing. The assembly is well engineered and it’s an area that could benefit from a little more thought. Getting the fins right can be challenging. Fitting them with the unit cranked open so they are vertical work best. Use long nose pliers to remove the grommets that buckle if you have to but don’t dispose of them as there are no spares – try to reuse where they go in more easily. When fitting the angle braces on the side of the posts, using a quick grip clamp and predrilling the holes with a 3mm bit makes installing the tex screws with a battery driver and bit much easier. Note: there are no spare tex screws either, we were one short and had to improvise :( We swapped out the coach screws for fitting the structure for masonry 8m x 65mm anchor bolts. An 8mm masonry bit was used to drill the concrete. The gearing is really pleasing, quick to open or close with little effort.

We are very happy with our purchase and the quality is superb. Unbelievably easy to assemble, I had this up in a day with a little help from my good wife. I had been in the Aluminium window and door manufacturing business for over 35 years so I am very good impressed. As you can see it fits in with our house and deck perfectly. So a big thank you.

Fitted together well. How to fit the louvres needs a larger diagram. Needed a magnifying glass to see how it went together. Got a wind test the day after it was put up. Stood up to it with no problems.

Very easy system to assemble and erect, was done done with just the family in sections. Love the separate louvres which works really well for shading the sun depending on where you are sitting. The gutters work really well for removing the water under the deck. Thanks Trade Tested for a good system. Just need to install some form of wind breaks for the southerly.

Yay I finally have it up. Firstly it should be noted that it is 3.9 metre square and not 4 as suggested in the main advertising. Easy to put up and looks good. There was only one exception and that relates to the louvres. They were awkward and difficult to correctly align. And then there was the need to put in the plastic grommets which wasn't the easiest thing to do. There are some rust spots appearing on some stainless steel screws which I wil be watching.

Purchased 2 of these just before the lockdown, have attached them under the eves, & removed those posts almost all the way up, used the provided sealant to fill the drainage holes, also had to shorten the posts by about 40-50mm off the bottom, bolted the two together, but there is a small gap between them that I'll have to make a flashing for. Quite Pleased with the way it turned out.
