Creating additional living space outdoors and protecting it from UV and wind that’s what SunGuard’s drop down screens are made for.


We only use the highest quality components from the world leading manufacturers. For example, our Ziptrak® system is one of the best side channel outdoor screen systems, highly commended by thousands of clients and installers around New Zealand. Add the pelmet and your Ziptrak® will become fully enclosed and protected from any elements.

If we’re talking about our Café Screens range, we’re talking quality too. Sturdy 7:1 gearboxes, stainless steel mounting brackets to sustain any harsh weather and aluminium bottom rail ensure that your experience with our outdoor screens will be top notch. Wire guided options are available as well.

If you need your components in particular colours, you can always opt for custom powder coating by Dulux® Powder & Industrial Coatings.

We offer three distinctive fabric choices for our outdoor screens.

You can start with choosing our premium quality clear or tinted PVC sourced from one of Japan’s leading manufacturers. Stains and mildew protected, this beautiful PVC will preserve your view and protect from wind and UV.

Second option is Shadeview fabric that cleverly diffuses light, lends a pared-back finish and optimises views. Available in different weave options with 25 colours across the range. It has a high-shade factor, blocking up to 97 percent of the sun’s rays, reducing the temperature inside your home, and decreasing your energy costs.

Thirdly, we can use Docril Fabrics for our Café Screens. It is a Spanish company with a long textile tradition that started back in 1875. All Docril sun protection fabrics are produced in Barcelona (Spain).

Docril fabrics reduce solar heat gain by up to 90%, naturally creating a cool and comfortable environment. These fabrics have been tested for harmful substances or chemicals and certified by a global system Oeko-TexR Standard 100. Dupont Teflon coating makes Docril exceptionally resistant to water, high temperatures, chemical reaction, corrosion and stress-cracking.


Choose from a variety of options – free hanging, wire guided or side channels – it all depends on your design requirements and preferences. Talk to our specialists to get the best out of our outdoor screens.
