Why Awnings?

As innovators of outdoor-living solutions in New Zealand for many years, Shade Elements has become an industry leader of awnings, screens and retractable pergolas.

Developed in France and custom manufactured in New Zealand to withstand our harsh elements, The Fetuna Cassette awning combines maximum protection and modern design with minimal maintenance. The fabric skin and awning mechanism are completely protected when retracted, ensuring a longer product life and superior functionality. Made with quality aluminum and stainless-steel components, the Fetuna Cassette is built to last and comes with a five-year warranty.

  • Available using a Dorcil canvas or Shadeview screen options.
  • Available as a manual crank control or motorised.
