Award Winning Fresco Shades

There’s nothing like creating another room in your home, and even better when that room can be created without complicated construction issues. Fresco Shades are known  for their innovation and fresh thinking. Founder and managing director, Richard Cummins, started his business 19 years ago, and Fresco has been picking up awards and international recognition throughout its history. Fresco’s mission? To make outdoor living possible, all year round. Everything is proudly designed and manufactured on-site, and made specifically for you, to create more space and improve the indoor-outdoor flow.

THE SHADES DON’T JUST OFFER PROTECTION FROM WIND AND RAIN. They take the intensity out of summer heat, and optional PVC curtains pull down to form walls, taking the chill off cooler weather, whilst allowing you to enjoy your outdoor scenery.

CREATE AN OUTDOOR COVERED DINING AREA, SUN ROOM, OUTDOOR GYM, CHILDREN’S PLAY ROOM OR AN ALLWEATHER BARBECUE AREA. Every shade is made to suit the look and feel of your home. Fresco can also provide shelter for boats, spas and swimming pools; they’re also used in schoolyards, early learning centres, and restaurant outdoor dining areas.

THE FRAMES ARE MADE USING POWDER-COATED STEEL. The roof, which offers 99 percent protection from UV rays, is made from architectural-strength PVC with a 15-year warranty.

FRESCO CANOPIES USE MATERIALS THAT BLOCK OUT GLARE BUT STILL ALLOW PLENTY OF LIGHT, while helping to prevent sun, wind and rain damage to outdoor furniture. To further block out the elements, Fresco’s strong PVC GlideTrak sides can create a fully-enclosed room.

Fresco Shades won the 2017 OFPANZ Award For Excellence for this canopy, built around the outdoor fire. The cover was made in one whole piece, the installers had to lift the whole cover over the top of the chimney. It was a small area to work in, but the results were totally worth the effort.
