Fixed Frame canopies are a fantastic addition to any home, café, restaurant or workplace social area.

A Lidgard canopy is like adding a new room to your home or premise – for a fraction of the price!

Making the Most of Outdoor Living

As Kiwis, we love to be outside all year round, with one of our fixed frame canopies you can do this and be protected from the sun and rain by creating your very own outdoor room. They’re a fantastic way to establish harmony between your indoor and outdoor living spaces, maximising flexibility and add value to your home.

With a set of outdoor furniture under your canopy or tensioned membrane structure, you will create a place to relax, entertain and socialise and best of all be protected from both our harsh UV Rays and inclement weather.

They also become a space for your pets, to hang your washing under cover outside in the winter or encourage the kids to play outside no matter what the weather is doing.

Outdoor blinds are easily added to complete the outdoor room providing maximum flexibility for you, your family or your clients and patrons to enjoy the space to the utmost. For information on our outdoor blind options, please click here.

Product Features

All of our framing is made of aluminium. It will not rust, so will last you a lifetime! Beware cheap alternatives that use steel…time and again we see these and customer disappointment where rust streaks are present within a year or two of installation.

The frame may be powder coated to any colour within the Dulux powder coating range, which you can view by clicking here.

Highly customisable – we can work to virtually any shape and size. Our expert engineering team will find brackets, flashings and guttering solutions to suit wherever you’re wanting to locate your canopy.

The roof can be lined with either polycarbonate plastic sheeting or architectural tensile PVC products which provide shade, waterproofing and light.

Our PVC membranes are expertly welded and tensioned during installation to provide a clean, attractive and durable finish.

Lidgard canopies and retractable roof structures all enjoy a 5 year warranty.
