Whether it be a deck at home or an entire tennis court, shop front or swimming pool, awnings and canopies provide a solution for a range of scenarios.

Lidgard retractable and canvas awnings are a versatile way to provide you shade when you need it.

With the ability to extend up to 4m and be fully automated to self manage in testing conditions, Lidgard retractable awnings are extremely popular as shade solutions for your home.

Fixed frame & canvas awnings are a great way to add flair and colour to your home and serve as a practical way to keep the rain away from entrances and excessive heat into your living spaces.

They are just as suitable for commerical premises providing a great opportunity to make your business stand out from the crowd and give your customers somewhere to shelter from the weather.

Barrel shade structures and canopies are used primarily to cover large spaces to provide protection from the rain and sun. They are often found in schools and public places such as parks and supermarket parking lots.

We're not cowboys! We like to enable you to make an informed decision when looking to install an awning.
