We can install tensioned fabric within your pergola frame – steel or wood, it doesn’t matter as long as the structure is strong enough.

These can be made using either PVC mesh or shade cloth. When you want edge to edge shade, PVC mesh is the best choice. If you want to make a statement with the curves of a shade sail, then shade cloth is what we would recommend.

Pergola shades can also be made waterproof, provided there is a minimum slope of 20% to ensure the water can run off and reduce the risk of water pooling on the fabric and causing damage or stretch.

Commercial or residential, big or small – we can help!


Fixed Shade & Protection – Sleek & Simple

Caring for your Shade

To care for your shade panels, wash with a gentle soap solution using a soft brush and rinse with a hose. Please do not use leave-on chemical products or a water blaster as these may damage the fabric.

You said it best

“I am restoring a vintage landrover and needed some repairs done to the vintage canvas canopy. Two other canvas specialists in Nelson said they were not interested due to the complexity of the job. TM covers were however very happy to undertake the repairs and the completed work quality exceeded my expectations. The team are very user friendly, understood what was required and I thought the price was very reasonable. I thoroughly recommend TM covers!”


We at the Nelson Womens Center are constantly amazed by the generosity of business and 
members of the Nelson Community. Transport and Marine Covers spent time making us, and donating 
to us, a shade sail to cover the new deck and building built by the students in the building programme 
at NMIT in 2016. The shade sail reduces the sauna effect from the sun in our new exterior Counselling
room, ties the outdoor area together and provides shade from the intensity of the sun for lunchtime
 relaxing and sharing, for extended workshop space and for clients to relax and enjoy our outdoor space.
