Yes, our Louvre roof can be custom designed. Manson has an in-house design team for just this purpose. Our sales team will discuss the project with you to understand your required outcomes and get agreement on initial design concepts. Our design team will then prepare you a general arrangement drawing of the design. Once this has been signed off, we can supply a final quote for your job. If a PS1 and engineering calculation are required, we will also include these costs at this stage.

Yes, you can. Our install costs do not include any additional building works that might be required when you do so. We can discuss this with you at the site visit, as different cladding structures have different requirements. Our system can also be installed without fixing to your house.

Each region in New Zealand has different building consent regulations. Most regions allow an opening roof of up to 30 square metres to be installed without the need for consent. We recommend always checking with your local council before ordering a Manson EXO™ Louvre roof.

We offer powder coating, woodgrain finish, or anodised finish. This can all be tailored to your architectural needs. Our pricing includes standard colour powder coating. If you require something different or a specific non-standard colour, we are more than happy to arrange pricing for this.

The Manson EXO™ Louvre roof system is fully motorised and can be opened or closed at the touch of a button. Rain sensors can be added which will automatically close your Louvre roof should precipitation be detected.

Yes. The blades on our Louvre roof system are designed specifically to achieve a watertight finish. The Louvre roof is also rainproof to 10 degrees when open, allowing airflow and light in all weather. N.B. Whilst we take all practical steps to ensure your systems is watertight, under severe weather you may find small amounts of water become present.

All our systems are designed to be low maintenance. Depending on what finish you go for, the maintenance will vary. As a guideline, you should ensure you clean your system every 3 months and remove any dust, salt, dirt, leaves etc from it.

We do offer a kit-set system that comes with a guide for self-installation. However, you will still need to arrange the plumbing, electrical and any additional building requirements with a qualified tradesperson.

The EXO systems are manufactured in our Auckland factory out of highly durable marine-grade materials. We produce high quality, New Zealand-made system, not an imported product that won’t stand the test of time.
