Canopies and Awnings Auckland & New Zealand

Serge Ferrai Architectural Grade PVC Fabric

Tensioned fabric structures place a considerable demand on the fabrics used in their construction. Therefore, it is important to use a fabric that is specifically designed for the job. While there is a vast range of PVC coated fabrics available, very few are suitable for use in roofing applications.

Fresco Canopies use state-of-the-art Ferrari Preconstraint Architectural grade PVC, designed and manufactured in France specifically for tensioned roof applications. It has a unique multi layer method of construction which results in a vastly superior life compared with conventional materials. Ferrari Fabrics are a global leader in PVC for outdoor structures, and have created some high end designs throughout the world using the same PVC as we use for your canopy.

Ferrari fabrics can be easily cleaned and will retain their clean appearance indefinitely. The lighter colours of the range tend to be most popular as light is able to pass through the material, resulting in minimal light reduction for adjacent areas. A wide range of colours is available to compliment your home or to match corporate colour schemes in commercial applications.

Durable Galvanised Steel Frame

Fresco’s high quality framework comprises structural grade galvanised New Zealand steel, all of which is cut, bent and powder coated in our factory in Auckland. Our brackets and connectors are also made in-house, and are galvanised and powder coated for longevity. Our designer ensures that every canopy is robust, has sufficient support, as well as looking great. When comparing to other options, please be aware that not all shades are as well designed or strong.

Long lasting Dulux Powder Coated Finish

Fresco Shades is the only Canopy and Awnings Auckland manufacturer with our own in house powder coating facility. This allows us to have complete control over the finished quality.

All our brackets and frames are coated using Dulux Duralloy®,a tough thermosetting powder coating that exhibits decorative and durable characteristics suitable for exterior product applications where excellent overall performance is required. Choose from an extensive colour range to suit your existing structure.

Thanks everyone for our Fresco Shade, we are thrilled with it, it looks fantastic. The whole process was stress free and indeed a pleasure, from the time Russell came out right through to installation by Steve and Julian. I have and will continue to recommend your product and service to all.

Chris and Pete Henry

We are glad we went with you in the end. We did some serious research and compared the players in the market. Even though there were cheaper options around, the design, the quality of the fabric, and your professionalism convinced us in the end. Thank you very much.

Girard de Soucanton

We have found our whole ' fresco shades experience' to be such a positive one. From the people and their friendliness, professionalism, knowledge and advice, to the beautiful superior finished product. It is by far one of the best and easiest decisions we have made to add value, function and beauty to our home. Thank you again to all the team!

Brenda and Vince Nola

We are pleased we chose the fabric roofing as it is cool to sit under and has not affected light filtration to our lounge. We are thrilled with the end result, and are using the deck even now, being May.

Lois and Alf Sharp

A pleasure to deal with you, which is a nice change, service as it should be. Well done all round.

Annette Lee

A quality product and service from beginning to end - thank you.

Derek and Sue Ranger

The canopy and curtains have been the icing on the cake for our deck. Thank you so much for all your wonderful help.

Lil and Matt Newbold

I was initially a bit unsure about how the canopy would look, but the end result has blown me away. We hardly used our deck before and now we use it a lot more. It has made entertaining so much easier, no more worrying about whether it will rain, now we can entertain outside in all weather. Thanks so much to the team at Fresco Shades.

Sarah and Paul Conner

We are thrilled with the end result. We are already getting good responses from family and friends. Great service all round, from the initial contact to completion.

Rob and Cecelia Murray

I would recommend a Fresco Shades canopy to anyone wanting to keep the rain and also the hot sun off their deck. The construction is excellent, in fact it is just perfect. The installers and salesman were great to deal with. Thank you Fresco Shades.

Vivian Goh

Steve and Julian have just put up the plastic drop, which now completes our Fresco shade, and I am thrilled with the finished look. We have been very impressed with the quality of the product, the expert advice given by Russell at the outset, and the excellent standard of workmanship by your installation team. Thank you!

Helen and Malcolm Page

Earlier in the year you made shades for me to go over 2 balconies. The reason for purchasing the shades was that my house was leaking with every rain. The shades were not guaranteed to be water tight, but I have not had one drop into my house since they were constructed. I am very grateful for the marvelous workpersonship, and I enjoy my 2 new rooms every day. Thank you!

Diane Ramsay

We are thrilled with our fresco shade! Way exceeds our expectations. It looks fabulous and makes our outdoor living area so much more useable! We found all dealings with staff to be effortless. They were all polite, professional helpful and friendly to deal with. You couldn't ask for more! Thanks so much and keep up the good work!
