Outdoor Living

Outdoor Living is important part of the Kiwi lifestyle,so creating an inviting outdoor living space is an important priority for every homeowner.

A&T Glass offer a few different outdoor living options for sheltering an outside living space. Whether you are looking for flexible shading from a retractable awning, or a more permanent shelter with a pergola or opening louvre roof, we can help you.

As they say, “build it and they will come” and this is especially true when you add a pergola or other outdoor shelter to your outdoor living area. Time and time again we have seen an outdoor area that was previously unused and ignored, transformed into an inviting and enjoyable space once shelter from the sun and elements were added.


Retractable, folding arm awnings are a proven and popular solution for instant shade and shelter in the outdoors. Modern folding arm awnings have the benefit of a built-in storage system, where awnings fold themselves into for protective storage when not in use.

A & T Glass offer only the best in awning options, which are long lasting and able to cope with our harsh NZ environment over many years. They offer the HomePlus Awning range which are manufactured in NZ, using imported European awning arms and UV resistant fabrics for protection against the harsh NZ sun.

All awnings have a choice of a wall or ceiling mounted installation and NZ sourced acrylic fabrics offered in a range f over 40 colours and patterns. Three different awning systems are available to cover a range of different requirements, dependent on style, price and the size of area your awning needs to cover.

Pergolas & Opening Louvre Roofs

Everyone has different ideas about what makes for an ideal outdoor living space, so we have a range of different options for creating permanent shelter in your outdoor area. Whether you are looking for a fixed verandah roof or the flexibility of an opening louvre roof, with options for drop down awnings or glass doors, we can help you achieve your outdoor living dream.

Opening Louvre Roof (Bask)

There’s a reason that opening louvre roofs are one of the most popular outdoor living solutions in NZ. Not only because they offer the greatest flexibility when it comes to dealing with our fickle weather, but also because of WOW factor they add to any outdoor space. Louvre blades can be easily opened or closed (by remote control), to control the light, sun and breezes in an outdoor area. In summer you can angle the blades to create dappled shade that lets in the breeze or close the blades for full shade if you prefer. Opening the louvre blades to let in the sun and enjoy the warmth and light is popular in seasons outside of summer, especially on sunny winter days.

Opening louvre roofs are the ultimate in outdoor living enhancers for the NZ lifestyle. With options to add drop down awnings, glass doors and automated weather sensors we custom make and fit each roof to fit each customers space and lifestyle. Guttering and pipes for water removal are built in and concealed, whilst the louvre roof is finish in a powdercoat colour of your choice to blend in with your home’s décor.

Bask Louvre Roof Systems:

As part of the HomePlus group, A & T Glass and Glazing can offer you the Bask Louvre Roof range, which is one of the best on the NZ market.

Integrated Louvre Roof – Fitted into a built in Pergola structure, integrating a louvre roof creates more flexibility and control over the weather conditions when you are enjoying your outdoor living space.

Freestanding – With 4 support posts, this self-supporting louvre roof has virtually no installation restrictions. Perfect for creating a complete outdoor living space where one didn’t previously exist.

Wall Series – fixed on one or two sides to a structure (usually a house wall), these louvre roofs only need one or two support posts, which are fitted on corners that are away from doors or windows (keeping them clear of obstructions).

Here’s just a few of our local Bask Roof Installations. The A & T Glass team love these louvre roofs, so much so that the boss even has them installed at his place.

Louvre Roof Options

Glass Doors

Sliding glass panel doors can be fitted to one or more sides to offer protection from the elements, creating an enclosed space and shelter from wind and rain.

Drop Down Awning Screens

Enclosed in the posts and louvre roof frame, drop down screens are ideal for increased privacy and protection from annoying breezes, with remote controlled automation.

Stratco Flat Verandah is a permanent outdoor shelter which offers classic good looks and reliable protection from harsh sun and rain. Available as either a freestanding structure or attached to your home, Flat Verandahs are a classic pergola option that have proven themselves over many years of use in both Australia and NZ.
