Pop Up Gazebos
Below is a range of specific information relating to the gazebos we offer as a part of our Gazebo Hire service. As such, Feel free to have a look through it to better understand the products we provide.
A pop-up gazebo (or portable gazebo or frame tent in some countries) is a shelter that collapses down to a size that is portable. Typically, gazebos of this type come in sizes from three meters by three meters and six meters by six meters. Larger or semi-permanent gazebos are known as “marquees”.
On the topic of pop-up gazebos, most come in two pieces; the gazebo frame and the canvas with side walls. Further, The gazebo frame is constructed of either steel or aluminium. Additionally, steel-framed gazebos are heavier and typically cost less than aluminium-framed ones. New high-strength steel alloys have been used recently, which are lighter than common steel yet stronger than aluminium. Top canvases for most gazebos are made from a polyester fabric such as nylon.
Most pop-up gazebos are open-sided and without walls, distinguishing them from larger marquees or semi-permanent shelters. On that topic, we do offer side walls which are available on request.
Indeed, such gazebos have become very popular for sporting events, festivals and trade shows. As a matter of fact, they are also known as pit tents when used in the context of amateur or semi-professional motorsport.
Interestingly, many commercial gazebo companies have also established themselves as branding companies, silk screening and digitally printing on custom gazebo tops to promote the company using them. What’s more, it is a thriving industry worldwide today.
Concerning their design aspect, gazebos are free standing. Though, they can also be attached to a garden wall. As well, they are roofed and open on all sides, with various colours available from our own range. Importantly, They provide shade, shelter, ornamental features in a landscape, and a place to rest. Speaking of, some gazebos in public parks are large enough to serve as bandstands or rain shelters.
As mentioned, a gazebo is a freestanding, open garden structure. And, it is often hexagonal or octagonal in shape, with a domed roof. Additionally, Latticework sides make some gazebos feel more enclosed. As a result of their portability, they are usually situated in a spot (like a hill) that provides a pleasant view while offering shelter from the sun. Initially, Most gazebos were, and still are, constructed of wood. However, aluminium and steel have become the more prevalent materials in their manufacture.
Intriguingly, small cities in the late 19th century and early 20th century often had large gazebos in the town centre or park, where they often served as bandstands. As a result of their nostalgic appeal, gazebos are a popular prop for garden weddings. Moreover, they are often associated with romantic scenes in films and photographs.
