The Main Advantages:
A Quick Summary of the Main Advantages of Pop-Up Gazebos:
- Weather-proof and waterproof
- Hard-wearing, heavy-duty and strong
- Easy to assemble and take down
- Very easy to adjust to your needs with awnings, side panels and other add-ons
But be warned! Though pop-up gazebos do offer all these advantages, if they are cheaply made they won’t necessarily be reliable, so here we’re going to make the case for spending a little bit extra to ensure you end up with a quality product.
Weather can be unpredictable so you need to purchase a gazebo that can hold up in the elements. Pop-up gazebos should be weather-proof, but unfortunately some cheaper version won’t last long in rain or wind. Our product will. Here’s why:
- Canopy made of PVC lined polyester which is very water resistant. The polyester lining adds a second layer to prevent water penetration.
- Canopy sprayed with a water resisting chemical.
- Seam sealant used on all stitching.
- Steel frames are powder-coated in silver for weather-proofing and to prevent rust.
- Quality accessories to ensure stability and resistance against the wind.
They also stand up to the wind, though since they’re very easy to take down and put back up, we’d recommend you put them away in really rough weather.
Pop-up gazebos are easy to assemble and compact, but that doesn’t mean they are flimsy or will wear easily. Our pop-up gazebos have been developed to last for years because of the materials and design we use.
Here are the crucial features that ensure your pop up gazebo will be heavy duty, hard wearing and long-lasting:
- Profile aluminium is used on our frames which is incredibly strong. Pop-up gazebos that use cast aluminium are most susceptible to breaking. Watch a video below showing how strong they are.
- The hexagonal framework design ensures exceptional strength when standing.
- Hardwearing nylon joints are hammer tested during manufacturing (literally hit with hammer!) to ensure strength. You can see a video of this process below.
- The class of nylon we use is often used in engineering as a replacement for steel. It is a more effective hard-wearing solution that prevents aluminium on aluminium friction for a better sliding mechanism when you put the gazebo up and down. When aluminium rubs together the friction, abrasion and oxidisation that is caused means the joints are at risk of fusing together.
- The nylon material also means greater flex tolerance on uneven ground.
- Robust screws fixing for easy repair
- Heavy duty Velcro to add side panels and walls on and fix the canopy securely
Pop-up gazebos have their name because they are very easy to assemble. Our range is no different and can be put up in a matter of minutes, meaning you can get on with enjoying your gazebo instead of spending a lot of time trying to get the thing up!
The hexagonal frame makes it really easy – there’s no screwing parts together, or tricky construction, instead you gradually pull the frame out to erect it.
Just like putting up, pop-up gazebos are really easy to take down too.
All our gazebos are very easy to take down and pack away, and our Pro 40 Compact range is particularly compact and can easily fit in the boot of car, which makes it perfect for weekends away, festivals, camping trips or events that you are driving to. It is easily the smallest commercial shelter currently available in today’s market.
Pop-up gazebos are very flexible when it comes to customising space and covers. These are the potential adds-on we offer:
- Inner tents with mesh window panels, blinds and built-in floor
- Walls so you can join up multiple gazebos (infill sidewalls)
- Sun Shade Awning Kits
- Sky banners for commercial use
You can customise your space as you need, and use your gazebo for different types of events.
What other types of gazebo are available, and why shouldn’t I go for them?
Aside from pop-up gazebos you can also purchase:
Gazebos with hardtops
- These normally have steel or wooden tops and, unlike pop-ups, are permanently erected in your garden. They are a bit like summerhouses. If you are looking for a permanent gazebo then this type of product could be suitable for you, but it isn’t transportable and will need care and upkeep over the years.
Gazebos with canvas tops
- Most gazebos with canvas tops are also permanent or semi-permanent. They are at more risk of damage from poor weather than a steel topped gazebo and have the same limitations of a permanent gazebo.
Cheap pop-up gazebos
- Cheap pop–up gazebos are reasonably widely available from sites like Amazon. The reason they can be sold so cheaply is because, in essence, they are low quality. If you are using a gazebo as a total one-off you might think this is the best option for you, as it doesn’t matter too much if the gazebo isn’t long-lasting. However, since the gazebos are of such low quality they can struggle to handle even one event, especially if the weather turns. If you intend to use a gazebo more than once you need to invest in quality.
