Sundream Sail

We recently supplied a new shade sail as part of the recent refurbishment at Sierra Cafe – Botany​. We used Hiraoka Sundream fabric to replace the existing sail which was tired and poorly fitting. Sundream has amazing light transmission properties while protecting from the UV and rain – and don’t forget that amazing colour. Pop down & grab a coffee to see it for yourself!

Oztech Retractable Pergola

Another day, another Oztech Retractable Pergola! Check out this job we recently completed in Te Atatu Peninsula.

Fully retractable when the weather is nice, and both UV-proof and waterproof when extended, as well as coupled with remote dimmable LED lighting – this deck area is now open for business or pleasure 24/7 365! Running off the lounge, the retractable pergola effectively doubles the living area.

Ziptrak Blinds at Hunting Lodge

We recently returned to the Hunting Lodge to install Ziptrak outdoor blinds along the outside edge of the Oztech retractable pergola we installed last year during their renovation of The Barn.

Each of these blinds is 4 metres wide and 2.5 metres tall. We used Ferrari Soltis 86 mesh for the blind material. Soltis 86 has excellent properties for mesh outdoor blinds, especially larger ones like these – its best characteristics being its light weight and incredible strength and dimensional stability.

Pt Chev Beach Cafe Retractable Pergola

Another job completed last week – an Oztech retractable pergola for Pt Chev beach cafe. Some tricky angles at play on this one requiring some out of the thinking to get total coverage of assymetrical patio. The solution involved an additional gutter installed on an angle and a fixed/permanent triangular in-fill. Result = total coverage and still looks really sharp.

If you’re in the neighbourhood, go grab a coffee, check out the roof, and get a testimonial off Karim, the proprietor!

Next up, track guided blinds all round to create the ultimate all-weather indoor-outdoor dining room!
