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.

Questions and answers

0 votes
q: Can the side of roof with no poles be mounted to existing garage?
a: Anything is possible with the right skills, just bear in mind that the guttering is integrated into this beam, so you'll need to account for that when designing your mounting system.

2 votes
q: What is the distance between posts? Can it be shortened?
a: The posts are designed to be installed at a set width (3500mm). The design could potentially be modified, however this is not covered in the manual so the end result would be down to the skill and knowledge of the installer. Modifications would not be covered by our warranty.

q: Do the carports have a snow loading rating?
a: As per the specifications, the vertical load rating is 600N/m² to 1500N/m² depending on fixing method used (we recommend concrete footings).

q: Can you adjust the height of the poles if using the bolt direct footing or is it then 3 M tall?
a: You would need to cut the posts to size if you were using this fixing method and wanted the height to be less than 3m.

q: I live in christchurch. Do you need a council permit to install? Thanks Paul Wilson
a: 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.

q: What lengths are posts, and what is the internal height from finished ground level to the underside of the beam. (post side)
a: The post is 3m, however we recommend 50cm deep footings so the the internal height to the beam would be 2.5m.
By Trade Tested on November 23, 2018
0 votes
q: 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?
a: With the post 0.5m into the ground, the height of the post above ground will be 2.5m.

Very happy with this cantilever carport which we used to cover a deck. Definitely need someone who knows what they are doing to place the main posts. The rest went together ok.

Very happy with product. Particularly like the fact one side is free from any poles - greater access etc.

A year or two ago I purchased a cantilever cover for the express purpose of protecting my boat from the elements. My sons live off shore so when they came home this Xmas we got down to erecting it. My property is between Whangamata and Whitianga. Traffic over the holiday period is so hectic. Since we've erected this structure people have not only come of the street to make enquires but two guys, one from Pauanui, and a mate from Tairua both intend buying 2x2 of the cantilever cover for their boats also, that's not to say not only the foot traffic, but also vehicle personnel people who have taken the time to look at our structure may well follow suit.

Cantilever carport is well made, it’s pretty easy to put together, does need about 3 people, I just love how it’s looking, very stylish product, I’m so pleased I went with this product.

I used the cantilevered patio as a carport. It's original dimensions are bigger than the space I had available so I cut it down to 2.6m by 5.0m and reduced the height to 1.6m at the lower side to match the adjacent fence. The modifications were simple to achieve and added half a day to the assembly time of 1 day for three people. Overall I am really happy with ease of installation and how good it looks.

Cantilever canopy cover 3m x5.5m

Have attached 2 end for end to make 10m Very good units, look good,fairly easy to erect Canopies sit out over roof but have made 2 brackets per unit to secure them under the eave. Stops the open side from flapping in wind Bought joining kit, no instructions, can’t for the life of me figure out how it would work. Waste of time I just bolted the joining side rails together with suitable bolts & washers & run a strip of sealer along join. Secure & doesn’t leak. Cover panels are quite dark, do cut out a lot of light during winter Overall, very pleased

Awesome! very pleased with it but does need a bit of expertise from someone with building knowledge and more than one pair of hands!

Good unit, instructions could be better. I swapped some of the screws supplied for pop rivets. Supplied screws would be better square drive as opposed to the phillips ones that come with it. Have made brackets to secure open side to the building, will reduce movement in wind Cover panels are quite dark, would be nice to have 2-3 shade options. Overall, looks good, reasonably strong, am getting a 2nd unit to go beside existing one

Overall it is a great product. I used it to shelter our back door area. I would have preferred a lighter tint but it will be ideal in summer. Also the instructions need to rewritten by an English speaker - not just translated from Chinese.

Has been up a month now. Had very strong northerly winds last week early in the morning which woke the household. Carport looked like it was going to take off and head to Invercargil but survived ok. All round I am happy with the carport and would highly recommend to others wanting a cost effective shelter solution.

Put up two of these. Instructions need to be read carefully. Setting up the posts needs to be accurate. Arrived on time with all the right bits and pieces. Looks good and great value for your dollars. Had winds from hell this week and the bugger is still there. Can't ask for more than that.

Great design. Instructions took a bit of figuring out by the builders but it looks great up. Easy to install once you've done it once!

Patio shade

Bought this for some shade on our patio, was reluctant to spend the money to start with but I am really pleased with the result. If I had one small improvement it would be better instructions around the main roof assembly, takes a bit of nutting out.

This carport really gave us the WOW factor. Just love it and so do all our friends. It has added value to our property. It was harder to put the top together than expected. Definitely a 2 man job.

This product was just what I needed. My situation is very much like the one in the product photo--it covers half a double carpad. I buried it an extra 100mm deep as it is a high wind area and I also wanted to minimise shade on my garden. Construction was relatively easy, except the small stainless steel screws were inadequate and often snapped so I replaced them all with larger, stronger galvanised ones for the framing. Ok for securing polycarbon panels. Very happy with the product.

We are so wrapped with the unit and it certainly does serve the purpose. Price wise, fantastic. Unit on front of our home cost $8.5k, we are in total shock for the same thing !

There was a lot of scratches on the powder coated alloy and disappointing scratches on the poly carbonate roofing , as there was no damage to the outside packaging i guess it was poor handling before packaging. square drive screws would have been better. instruction good. although i am a builder, would be a good idea to suggest to square up main roof structure by measuring the diagonals before all the screws are put in .otherwise very pleased with the carport Cheers Wayne Whitianga

Cantilever carport.

A very attractive carport when assembled. Needs two adults to assemble. Apply plenty of sealant at both ends of guttering. Accuracy is important when concreting in uprights. ( I was 1mm out and it caused minor problems.) Excellent shade to protect cars from sunlight. Not sure how well it would perform in a high wind area. I ran a rope over the top for cyclone Gita and it survived.
