We have already established that a long lasting product made using quality materials is better for landfills, the environment and your wallet, but what determines a quality product?


Quality Fabric – we all know the NZ sun is harsh on our skin and it’s the same for fabrics. John Hewinson Canvas use Ripstop® PVC and Sunbrella® or Planasol® Canvas fabrics that have passed rigorous tests applying to NZ and/or Australian standards for UV breakdown, fading, wind strength etc. That way you know that a custom made product from us is going to be made using the correct fabric for the job and give you reliable service for many years to come.


Quality Workmanship –we have one apprentice (currently completing his MITO training) and the rest of our staff are fully qualified Tradespeople with many years of experience. Our team know their products, fabrics and what they are doing when they are measuring and manufacturing products. We pride ourselves on extremely high quality workmanship from designing through to installing. Job done right, first time, every time.


Quality Fittings and attachments – most products we make need to be attached in some way. There is no point in making something with top quality fabric and great workmanship to let it down with cheap fittings. John Hewinson Canvas only use quality fittings, either galvanised or stainless steel on shade sails which suits Northlands coastal environment and anything nature offers. All our boat covers have aluminium and nylon fittings perfect for salty conditions.


Quality Service – Protect your investment, family and friends from the elements over summer, ring us now to arrange a measure and install on one of our products made using quality fabric, workmanship and fittings.
