Enjoy customisable shade and cover with a retractable or fixed frame awning for your home or commercial building.

Giving you shade when you need it, and letting light inside the windows when you don’t, a retractable awning can add versatility and enjoyment to your space.

Or if a fixed-frame awning is more suited to your building’s design and aesthetic, or a covered walkway is required, we can design aluminium extrusions with a tensioned skin in your choice of fabric.

Style Options


Retractable awnings are a stylish and effective way of shading windows and doorways so you can stay cool during the summer heat but benefit from the warm sunshine in cooler months.

At Sunshade, our retractable awnings come in two types:

  • Lateral Arm Awnings can achieve a maximum extension of 4 metres and can be manually operated or motorised. Optional wind sensors can trigger automatic retraction in high winds.
  • Spring Arm Awnings have a maximum width of 6 metres and arm extension of 1.6 metres. These also give the option of completely closing off the opening. Motorisation is optional.


If you would like to provide cooling shade to your building, protect your interior from damage, or create a covered walkway, a fixed frame awning could be right for you.

Fixed awnings use specifically designed aluminium extrusions with a tensioned skin. This provides a permanent solution to reduce the heat and damage caused by direct contact with the sun’s harmful rays, or protection from rain over entrances and walkways.

The awning can also make a colourful brand statement for your building to catch the eye of potential customers.


At Sunshade we have a wide selection of design options available. Whether you want to match your awnings to your building or prefer to make them stand out, we have a range of colours and fabrics to suit your taste.

With our choice of awning fabrics including PVC and acrylic canvas, we’re sure to have a colour or pattern to achieve your desired look.

Fabric samples and specifications, including UVR block and excellent fabric warranties, are available on request.

All our awnings are fabricated here in NZ by the team in our central workshop. This ensures optimum quality control and provides reassurance that you are getting an expert fit.
