We recommended that you do not book an installer until you have received all boxes of your pergolas.
Add a chic, sharp architectural look to your outdoors with our hardy Aluminium Pergola. The adjustable, hand-cranked louvres are a practical way to let in as much or as little sun as you like, and if the rain starts up you can close the slats completely for shelter. Four seasons in one day? No worries.
Because at Container Door...the party....must always go on!
The louvres shut tightly when closed and are waterproof during showers - great for BBQs you're so fond of. Rain water runs down the sides into internal gutters, then down through the legs rather than pouring out over the sides. So you won't have to fear any unexpected deluges from on high, either!
With tough aluminium construction, and galvanised fasteners, this is a rust-proof structure that's going to bring you a lot more use of your pool area, garden, balcony or patio no matter what the weather-person is guesstimating. Party on, indeed!
AND READ WHAT SOME OF OUR HAPPY CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY:
"Love our pergola so much we bought a second one for our other deck. Keep up the good work. Love your stuff." - Marg
"Love my pergola! Only challenge was fixing it to paving...would have shattered the pavers on the corners so my wonderful paving people (who also put up the louvres) created some brackets to attach to the fence and used only one screw into paver and concrete for each leg of the pergola. But looks great!!!!" - Edwina
"Hey Container Door Team, the Aluminium Pergola went up easily and looks great! Good solid product, everyone that comes around is surprised by how cheap it was and how good it looks. It'd be great if you did accessories like blinds or louvres for the sides. Thanks Container Door, keep up the great work!" - Ben M
"We got the 4x4 and absolutely love it easy to assemble and stands up well in the rain 🌧 great product thanks container door" - Aiden
"So today I installed a louvre from Container Door for a customer in Pokeno these Louvres are very cheap compared to custom made from other louvre companies in NZ. I must admit I was skeptical at first but once I started I soon realized these Louvres are extremely good value for money. At an 8th of the price of a custom built I thoroughly recommend this product." - MO engineering (via Facebook)

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE WIND:
We recommend that you leave the louvres in the OPEN position when the pergola is not in use. The closed louvres act a bit like an umbrella catching gusts, so it’s safer to let the wind blow through rather than exert force on the structure.
INSTALLATION AND SAFETY TIPS
Firstly, we do recommend that you have your pergola professionally installed, simply because it is a large beast. However, some keen DIYers are choosing to install it themselves. Please do not attempt this unless you are very experienced with this kind of structure.
It’s important to know that the screws we supply for the base plates (16 galvanised coach screws, 8mm x 75mm) are only suitable for fixing into wooden deck joists and, for your safety (and everyone else’s), you will need to achieve an embedment of at least 70mm.
However, these screws will not be sufficient if you are locating the pergola in an exposed position that experiences wind gusts. These screws
are intended for use in a sheltered domestic back-yard-type situation only.
If you are installing your pergola in an exposed or wind-prone area, or are installing into a non-wooden surface such as concrete or stone, we again recommend getting professional assistance. You will also need to obtain suitable fixtures (not provided).
NB: For your safety, we do not recommend that you attempt to make alterations to these pergolas, and any adjustments will void your warranty coverage. If you’d like more information about installation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy of the manual and/or technical drawings.

And before you ask, no, we don’t get any kind of money for saying this!
This structure is a non-permanent structure and warranty does not cover fading or damage incurred due to extreme weather exposure (including heavy rain, winds, exposure to high heat from bbqs and heaters). It also does not cover damage to the pergola caused by negligence, accident or misuse. Please follow the instruction manual for installation as damage caused by not following the instructions will void your warranty.
Warranty covers domestic use only and does not apply to commercial use. However, we will do our best to help with any issues or replacements parts.
*In some cases, a building or resource consent may be needed. For pergolas over 20 square metres we recommend checking with your local council authorities for further information and guidance.*
