Product overview

This free-standing, cantilevered carport is a stunning addition to any property.

With its floating design and sleek dark grey finish, it’s the perfect combination of form and function in a carport.

A top quality, high intensity alloy frame is powder coated for durability and results in an exceptionally strong structure. Backed by a 5 Year Limited Warranty, you know it’s designed to handle New Zealand conditions.

The solid polycarbonate roofing panels feature a dark grey tint and an anti-UV coating that blocks 98% of harmful UV rays, essential for protecting exposed skin and car paint finishes. Highly impact resistant, the panels are approximately 200 times stronger than glass of the same thickness and feature excellent insulating properties, creating a cool shady area on those hot Kiwi summer days.

The cantilever design is great for areas with minimal room for anchoring, making these structures extremely versatile. As well as a carport, it’s perfect for patio areas, next to the pool, over the deck or for making your barbecue area an all-weather, year round outdoor kitchen.

Installation should be in a sheltered location and we recommend using concrete footings, especially in windy areas. Concrete footings should measure W 50cm x D 50cm x H 60cm.

A stylish and versatile addition to any home, transform your driveway or outdoor entertainment area by ordering yours today.

Hi have you ever looked into making a option for the roof to be a solar bank as it would look very stylish instead of them on the roof of your house
Not at this stage, but we've passed the suggestion on to our sourcing team.

What is the wind rating?
These are designed for sheltered residential areas, not known high-wind zones. They are sturdy, however we recommend using the concrete footings specified as the strongest installation method.

Are there side panels available to fit the cantilevered carport?
No that's not an option that we have, however you could probably rig up a solution fairly easily.

What height is the roof normally, or does that depend how deeply the posts are placed in the ground/footing. how easy is it to assemble?
With the post 0.5m into the ground, the height of the post above ground will be 2.5m.

Hi, are they made in larger sizes? For instance - to cover a 7.5mtr Motorhome that is 3 mtrs high?
We only have the 1 size at this stage, however you could install 2 end to end for length, the height would be trickier to achieve, however it would be doable - potentially by creating raised footings with breeze block and filling with concrete and rebar. We would recommend talking to a specialist if you were looking at this. If you would like to investigate further, feel free to give our sales team a call.

I live in christchurch. Do you need a council permit to install? Thanks Paul Wilson
In NZ carports have their own rules under the code. Generally speaking carports under 20 square meters are exempt from most rules. But as always, contact your local council and make sure you know exactly where you stand.

Was a mission to put it together as the instructions were sparse but was great when it was finished.

IQ tested carport

We use the carport as caravan storage, still using the same concrete footings ,but poured up reinforced planter boxes. This allowed us to raise the carport 500mm. The assembly instructions are messy. with pictures & drawings that are very different from the actual alloy extrusions supplied. The dome head screws supplied, should have been counter sunk screws, as the heads are to high and cause stress pinch point when fitting the polycarbonate sheets. Expect early failure of the polycarbonate! I filled the two alloy supports with mortar mix to stop the wobble , as the two L-shaped brackets supplied as an after thought are inadequate to stop the whole thing swaying in the breeze. On balance , a very stylish looking carport well worth the money.

Awesome - Quick Delivery and Great Support

What an awesome addition to our outdoor area, had a builder friend help me install, but could be done with two DIY skilled people. It has made such a massive difference to our ability to enjoy our outdoor area in rain and in sun. A very happy trade tested customer!

Bus Stop

I modified the legs to save digging up the concrete driveway and bolted the uprights to the concrete block retaining wall. An excellent result and an easy job to complete.

Patio Cover

So far fit for purpose. Being used to cover motorhome. Installed over 2 days (concrete set in between ) by 2 experienced trades people. Instructions terrible.

Good product but terrible instructions

Great cantilever pergola

I love this pergola and it’s perfect for our space. Well made and seems strong and durable. It took two experienced tradespeople 1.5 days to assemble (half a day to lay out and set the posts, one day to assemble the roof). The instructions were slightly confusing at times, especially step 6 which needs a clearer picture.

Cantilever carport

Looks lovely up, and not too complicated in putting up. Just needed 3 to 4 people when lifting roof onto the two uprights

Marilyn Hastings

My one was ok for the first 6 months then the poly carbonate panel started to part away not sure if the warranty cover this.
