About us

Contemporary shades for summer living

A local company, SunCraft, NZ Ltd. provides European-made
adaptable sunshades to maximise outdoor life.

Our story

The summer months in New Zealand are spent outdoors in areas where the sun relentlessly shines on residents. Initially, the market for exterior sun protection was limited to umbrellas and fixed sun shades, but we saw an opportunity to help Kiwis optimise their sun-trap areas and fully use their sun-bathed space using the Soliday retractable shade system.

Based in Austria, Soliday is one of the leading manufacturers of sophisticated manually- and automatically-retractable shade systems. Leveraging in-depth product knowledge, we created SunCraft, NZ Ltd., and are the exclusive distributor for Soliday products in the Oceania region.

We value our clients

At SunCraft, NZ Ltd., we strive to ensure our customers receive the product they ordered, from design to installation. When they are able to maximise the use of their sun-trap area, they express their delight and pleasure at the difference our sunshades make to their outdoor spaces, which inspires us to continue providing sunshades and exemplary service.

We are so pleased with the Soliday C system SunCraft installed for us last summer that we have asked Josef and Kate to shade another area for us this year.

Thank you so much! We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome. It looks amazing and is certainly serving its purpose. We even have had comments on how good it looks.

An awesome product, stunningly well-made and engineered. We have had a number of louvre roof systems in the past and the SunCraft product outperforms the louvre systems. It offers so much more flexibility in managing sun and sun angles. The windspeed and sun sensor functions are also first class. Josef and Kate are great communicators and deliver on their promises. We couldn't be happier.

We recently approached Suncraft about their shade sails. Josef was both professional and a great guy, he quickly assessed our site and the options and prepared a 3D model on site to show us the look and shade we’d achieve. We visited other installations and were impressed with the functionality and high quality of the product. We ordered a sail and Josef delivered a beautifully finished sunshade when he said he would and exactly to our specification. Brilliant product and service.

We love our shade sails! and the customers love them too. Shade was always our biggest issue, and these sails look so effective and are so practical.

Amazing retractable shade structure. Instant shade with the push of a button, retracts when not needed and when you want the view. We had an umbrella before which broke in the smallest breeze. Suncraft system has quality components which can handle gusty wind. This also provides a large area of shade coverage that couldn’t be achieved with an umbrella. We couldn’t imagine summer without it.
