En­joy your out­door area year round

Auckland City Harbour News - - Sport -

This win­ter you don’t have to hun­ker down inside your home. No mat­ter how harsh na­ture can be, the sim­ple ad­di­tion of an awning or drop cur­tain to a deck or pa­tio will al­low you to live out­doors a lot more.

Awnings are ex­tremely ver­sa­tile fix­tures - they not only add zing to the ex­te­rior of your home, they can cre­ate ex­tra liv- ing spa­ces, and save you money on en­ergy costs. Sleek, mod­ern and stylish, th­ese cov­eted cov­er­ings are also a treat for the eyes.

One of the big­gest play­ers in this mar­ket seg­ment is Cool Awnings. Hav­ing served the needs of New Zealan­ders for the past 30 years, they are an in­te­gral part of the coun­try’s decorscape.

Af­ter a change of own­er­ship they have moved into a sprawl­ing new offi and show­room com­plex on Mor­rin Road in Pan­mure.

“The new show­room re­flects the huge re­sponse from our cus­tomers,” says CEO Kylie Glenn, who brings with her a keen eye for style and a new busi­ness approach that puts the cus­tomer first.

The show­room, with plenty of park­ing out­side, pro­vides acres of space for cus­tomers to browse through the mas­sive range on dis­play.

“Ev­ery awning is specifi fab­ri­cated to pro­tect you and your be­long­ings from the weather and to pro­vide pre­mium shel­ter,” says Kylie.

Most awnings and cur­tain de­signs are avail­able in hand-rolled, crank-op­er­ated or mo­torised op­tions. The ten­sion shade sys­tem is an­other op­tion for pro­tec­tion out­doors - built with a PVC cover over a steel or alu­minium frame, it’s ideal for a car­port or even as an ex­tra room.

They can also pro­vide front gut­ters on both the awnings and ten­sion shade sys­tem to en­sure peo­ple don’t get dripped on when they are out in the rain.

Cool Awnings can also brighten a drab store­front, and trans­form shop­ping malls and ho­tels with an un­lim­ited palate of de­sign pos­si­bil­i­ties. Any logo or graphic can be added to give you round-the-clock vis­i­bil­ity.

Take ad­van­tage of Cool Awnings’ free mea­sure and quote, and on­site con­sul­ta­tion ser­vice. An ex­pe­ri­enced trades­man will visit your premises to dis­cuss your in­di­vid­ual needs and pro­vide a quote to cus­tom make to your spec­i­fi­ca­tions.

With a welder, sail maker and builder on board, you can be as­sured of qual­ity work­man­ship from scratch to fin­ish!

“All hard­ware is guar­an­teed for five years and fab­ric for a min­i­mum of three,” says Kylie. But with Cool Awnings’ track record, awnings and shades are likely to keep go­ing for 10-15 years.

Pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing and prompt ser­vice is a pri­or­ity - from re­cov­er­ing ex­ist­ing deck chairs to com­ple­ment new awnings and shades, as well as clean­ing ex­ist­ing shades for a fresher look. Cus­tom made blinds in Ro­man, Hol­land and Vene­tian styles is an­other ser­vice.

Even as new de­signs and ideas keep spin­ning out of Cool Awnings, Kylie and hus­band John (Gen­eral Man­ager) have en­sured that the com­pany’s cher­ished val­ues and the ex­pe­ri­enced team of top-notch crafts­men re­main the same. Now, that’s cool!

Free on­site con­sul­ta­tion and spe­cial of­fer for May - free up­grade from hard­wire mo­tor to re­mote con­trol mo­tor.
