At Douglas we will work with you to customise your outdoor space, making the most of your existing assets in combination with our range of high quality outdoor roof, shade and screen systems.
Enhance your outdoor work or dining area with a sophisticated opening louvre roof system. Designed and custom made by NZ Louvres to provide protection from the hot Hawke’s Bay sun, our louvre roofs can either motorised or manually operated, with an option of an inbuilt rain sensor to automatically close the roof and keep your patrons comfortable in any conditions.

Retractable Roofs & Shade
Retractable roofs provide the option of having your outdoor hospitality area open to the stars or protected from the elements. With the addition of our outdoor screens, you can create a flexible, custom-designed space that can be adjusted to suit the light, heat or wind. Choose from a perfectly fitted Wave Sail, a retractable cover for your existing pergola or the Oztech range of architectural, retractable roof systems, all custom-made for your restaurant, bar or commercial area.

The Ziptrak® track guided blind system locks your fabric or PVC into tracks with no gaps to stop any flapping in the wind.
