Why you need a SolarShield® Canopy

Autumn. When talking about the weather here in Northland, it can mean almost anything. In fact, it seems virtually impossible for the sun, the wind, and the rain, to mutually agree on the best outcome. So lucky us, we are one of the only places in the world that manages to successfully achieve all four seasons in one day!


However, we aren’t so lucky when it comes to planning a BBQ, deciding on when to hang out the washing, or whether tonight’s dinner should be outside under the stars, or maybe it will rain – who can tell? We certainly can’t, so we offer the ultimate solution.


SolarShield Canopies offer you more than a simple shelter from the weather. They promise peace of mind and reassurance. Whether it comes in the form of a covered carport, clothesline or eating area, SolarShield removes the ‘weather dependent’ factor, ensuring a carefree, relaxed approach to outdoor living.

We realise that, like all investors, people who purchase Solar-Shields also look for peace of mind financially. As this is something we endeavour to help with, some of our offers include:

  • Lifetime warranty – Our polycarbonate roofing is covered by a lifetime warranty to give long service under normal usage.

  • Steelwork guarantee – SolarShield steel work is hot-dip galvanised for full rust protection and is guaranteed for five years.

  • Strong and lightweight - With an impact strength up to 150 times that of tempered glass, SolarShield sheeting can’t be matched by other materials.

  • UV protection – Our polycarbonate sheeting blocks 99.9% of harmful UV rays, so you can enjoy the sun without the danger of sunburn.

  • Building code – Engineering specifications can be supplied if a permit is required. A permit is not required for a SolarShield under 20m².

  • Custom made – There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to SolarShields, so our designs are carefully tailored until they are as unique as the individual themselves. Whether you want your canopy curved, mono pitch, or gable style, we are all about making the perfect SolarShield for you.
