Extend the Season with Pergolas, Shade Sails, and Awnings

Extend the Season with Pergolas, Shade Sails, and Awnings

The first half of March has been far kinder to us here in Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, and the Bay of Plenty than the whole of summer. If you’re reluctant to say goodbye to sunshine and outdoor living so soon, you’re not alone – but we’ve got good news for you!

With pergolas, shade sails, and awnings from Undercover Industries, there’s no need to pack away your outdoor furniture and bid your backyard farewell for another year. Here’s how we can help you extend the summer season and better enjoy your backyard.


Cooler temperatures and shorter days don’t have to keep you from enjoying your outdoor living space. With a high quality pergola, you’ll have a permanent structure that provides shade and shelter come rain, wind, or shine.

Pergolas will create an additional outdoor room, allowing your family to enjoy al fresco dining and giving you space to entertain friends. Of course, you can also just cosy up on an outdoor couch under the comfort of your pergola and enjoy the autumn sunshine with a good book.

Shade sails

A shade sail is great when you want to offer respite from the sun, but don’t have the space for a pergola. Shade sails work wonders over swimming pools, sand pits, and outdoor seating. They offer shade that isn’t only a relief from the sun’s heat, but also protects you from its harsh UV rays.

While great for at-home use, shade sails are also excellent options for businesses and educational facilities, letting your employees, colleagues, or students enjoy the outdoors with improved comfort and safety.


For a retractable option, awnings can offer both shade and shelter from the elements. They are durable and long-lasting, waterproof and UV resistant. Lateral arm awnings are a stylish and practical addition to your outdoor living space that you can use when you need to, and hide away when you don’t.

If you have a restaurant, café, or other business with an outdoor space, awnings can help your customers and staff better enjoy the season, too. With our high quality Lateral Arm Awning System, you can offer seamless shading over top of any decks and patios on your property.

Cheers to autumn!

There’s no reversing the so-called ‘summer’ that never truly arrived, but that doesn’t mean we can’t embrace autumn. Speak to the team at Undercover Industries about our pergolas, shade sails, and awnings and make the most of your outdoor living space year-round.
