Updated: Nov 22, 2019

It’s been a long winter and right now, the thought of sitting in full sun sounds wonderful! However, by midsummer, without the right shade solution you’re likely to find yourself desperate for a cool, shaded outdoor space to relax and entertain in.

Now is the time to get your outdoor living area ready to go, so you can make the most of it throughout the season.

At Colourplus we supply exterior awnings and screens from Luxaflex, which help you create outdoor areas you can enjoy all summer long.

Te Rā Fabric Awnings

The retractable solution for a flexible outdoor space

Just imagine you are outside enjoying a BBQ lunch in the harsh midday sun, and simply by a touch of a button a stylish awning projects over the table giving you instant shade!

These Swedish designed, innovative heavy-duty awnings deliver unparalleled functionality for New Zealand conditions.

The robust retractable arms span seven metres and can project up to four metres out from the building. This generous cover doesn’t need posts or other structures for support, which means you can enjoy the covered area as you please, without obstructions to your view.

Depending on the model you select there are several optional extras to enhance the performance and capability of your awning. This includes a roller valance for additional sun protection, pitch control to better control shade, telescopic arms to increase wind resistance, and rain hoods for improved fabric protection when not in use.
