Side Panels

High Quality Bespoke Side Panels

Enjoy your outdoor space or garden whatever the weather with our outdoor side panels, designed to last and withstand the elements. Cunningham’s panels are UV protected and made from waterproof material so they are ideal to provide protection from rain and sun.

We make your panels bespoke to your needs and can be designed to match any new and existing frameworks. Our panels are easily and securely fastened to using marine turn-buttons and stainless eyelets. We can also include a pocket along the bottom edge of your panel to allow pole or bar to be inserted for ease when rolling it.

All seams are double weld or sown. All pressure points such as corners have double material and re-enforced welds to cope in high winds with any rubbing on the frame.

We can also offer the option of including windows and doors on your panel. This can be up to a maximum height or width of 1300mm without a join due to the width of the roll. Side panels can also be made fully opaque for additional privacy, making them suitable for hot tub enclosures.

Benefits of Cunningham Side Panels

Creating Your Bespoke Side Panels

Frequently Asked Questions

All measurements of your panels should be taken from an outside view. Click here to view our ‘Measurements Consideration Video’. 

We can cover just about anything – our side panels are suitable for pergolas, wooden gazebos, outdoor kitchens, garden sheds, hot tub huts, outside kitchen/dining areas, BBQ shacks, picnic shelters, patio privacy and decking enclosures just to name a few.

Yes! Our side panels are very easily fitted at home and we have made it even easier. We have created a helpful Fitting Instructions document showing you the steps, simply click here to download. If you prefer to watch a video of our Side Panels Fitting Guidelines, click here.

As we are fully bespoke, they can be placed anywhere on the panels. As we work with wide industrial rolls of material, this can be up to a maximum height or width of 1300mm without a join. Wider windows and doors will have a visible join.

Yes, that is all part of the bespoke experience! Once you have measured the positions for these, we will provide mock-up drawings for your approval before production. From our years of experience, most zipped doorways are 850mm – 1000mm wide.

As standard, we include industrial strength brass or stainless-steel eyelets at the top and both sides, spaced around 250mm-300mm. We provide marine turn buttons which are usually drilled and fixed to your structure. The eyelet can then easily pop over the turn buttons to fix the side panels in place.

During Winter, we recommend keeping the panels rolled down and secured, especially in temperatures below 5C. Keeping panels rolled up during colder conditions can cause damage. We also recommend they are rolled down every night to prevent shrinkage and discolouration from condensation. All our covers are manufactured for use all year round, so maintaining the quality and prolonging lifespan during winter with these measures is encouraged.

We provide straps to secure the panels in place when rolled up. Simply open the turn buttons and roll the cover to the top of the structure/frame. Pull the straps around your rolled up side panel and fasten the strap to the buckle.

After initial installation, we recommend your panels remain rolled down for a couple of weeks to allow the product to settle in place and straighten through its own weight. We include a pocket at the bottom, allowing for a 25mm bar or pole to be slide in and keep it rigid, maintaining its shape. This is not a requirement but we recommend visiting your local hardware shop for purchasing the correct size pole.  

Our side panel materials require minimal maintenance once secured in place. Either secured in place or fully detached, the panels can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth/sponge and soapy water, maintaining its high-gloss look. A power washer may also be used, as long as it’s from a distance of 1.5m.
