About Elco Canvas


Elco Canvas & Heating has been servicing the Taranaki and beyond market since 1962. We repair all types of canvas and PVC products such as waterproof canopies, shade sails, roll-down clear screens, retractable awnings, trampolines, backpacks, rollbags, horsecovers, cowcovers, boatcovers, tarpaulins, family and hiking tents, purses and handbags, deckchairs, strops, wetsuits and gazebos to name a few! Drop in between 08:00 and 17:00 on any business day or 09:00 to 12:00 on Saturdays, and we can take the details and see what we can do for you!

We hire tarpaulins, wedding marques, commercial display / market gazebos and party canopies for decks.
In 2000, Elco expanded into heating, after the distinctive log frontage attracted the attention of Metro Wood Fires. We now sell the Metro Pioneer range of woodfires.

Check out their extensive range on display year around! Our staff can help you through choosing the correct model for your situation, guide you through the council consent process, and can recommend a competent plumber to install your chosen fire.

Egmont Leather & Canvas Company Ltd, founded in 1962, became known as ELCO for short. When Terry and Lynley Knauf bought the company in 1990, they kept the abbreviated name.

Terry has been in the canvas trade since 1977 and the six staff at Elco bring a wealth of combined experience to the business.
