Our Shade Houses are from one of NZ’s most popular brand and have supplied many happy home gardeners, butterfly enthusiasts, life-stylers, schools and institutions nationwide.

The sturdy 32mm square aluminium hoops and 25mm square purlin rails give you excellent strength, durability and value for money. The main frame and base rails are 100% aluminium with no timber to rot, rust or taint soils from tanalising.

The tall 2.3m apex height gives plenty of height for tall growing crops and gives increased internal air volume to act as a temperature buffer and frost protector.

All our Shade Houses have  a 2.36m wide base and come up to 50% pre-assembled so you can get growing faster with easy installation instructions and videos available online.

The frame uses an integrated groove locking system to reliably fasten the covering and easily allow you to use different types of coverings if required. The latest upgrade in the locking system has a more simpler and speedier design for ease of installation.

Our Shade Houses have a commercial grade, 30% knitted white shade cloth fitted to the ends, walls and roof of the tunnel house design.
