The Contemporary Alfresco is a sleek yet modern structure that features a subtle elegance that will never go out of style due to its clean lines and minimal looking aluminium extrusions.

It can span up to 6 metres from the building and be manufactured in any length making it the ideal shade and shelter structure for any garden that boasts a striking, modern appearance.

The roof can be covered with a choice of 8mm toughened glass that offers a clear view of the sky, or 35mm structured polycarbonate panels that are vandal and shatter resistant.

The frame is made completely from strong aluminium extrusions which are naturally rust resistant and are finished in any RAL or BS colour required. Hidden within the frame is integrated guttering and downpipes keeping the appearance of this structure smart and sharp.

The Contemporary Alfresco can be supplied with a range of upgrades to enhance the use of the structure such as heating, lighting, glass sliding doors and roof blinds. Please see further below for more detail.
