Waterproof pop up gazebos: a foldable tent for every occasion

A pop up gazebo at a beach club

Pop up gazebos are extremely quick to set up thanks to the scissor mechanism and provide excellent shelter from harmful UV rays on sunny days. They're suitable for countless purposes - from use at markets, trade fairs and festivals to the catering trade and even in your own garden. We have a wide range of pop up gazebos for sale in the UK and they're all 100% waterproof. There's a perfect pop up tent for every event – in different colours and sizes. And they're also adjustable in height! You won't find a more flexible, multifunctional shelter.

Pop up gazebos with sides: more privacy and protection

Pop up gazebos with sides provide plenty of options

Pop up gazebos with sides have many advantages - extra privacy, more shelter from the sun and in colder weather as a wind break against cool breezes. A fully closed folding gazebo with waterproof side panels offers wind and rain protection from all directions. The side walls also help to trap warm air under the canopy.

You can select between either 4 sided pop up gazebos, tents with 2 side panels or pop up gazebos with no side walls if a canopy is all that's needed. For economy models, the side walls attach with either Velcro loops or plastic hooks. For all other models the side walls attach to the roof with a continuous Velcro band and attach to the legs with Velcro loops.

You can also choose from a variety of features for the showerproof side panels. Using the filter on our page, you can select from waterproof pop up gazebos with sides featuring panorama windows, church style windows, or doors. Premium and Professional pop up gazebos with sides including panorama windows also feature a roll-up blind, giving you the option to open and close your pop up tent as you wish.

What makes for a heavy duty pop up gazebo?

Heavy duty means strong and robust. Heavy duty pop up gazebos have strong poles that don't bend in light winds, hard wearing connecting elements that don't break even after opening and closing the shelter countless times and a canopy that is hard-wearing and 100% waterproof. We've designed all of our products to meet these high standards to ensure they live up to the label: high quality and heavy duty.

Heavy duty pop up gazebos: A choice of steel or aluminium frames

In our shop you have a choice of pop up gazebo frame, with aluminium folding gazebos and steel frame pop up gazebos on offer. Whether steel or aluminium, you can choose between a square or hexagonal profile. The hexagon shape provides maximum resilience and load-bearing capacity.

The high quality steel used in our frames is particularly strong and robust. To protect the material from corrosion our steel pop up gazebos are powder coated. Due to their weight, pop up gazebos with steel frames are naturally strong and stable.

The light yet robust aluminium frame means that aluminium pop up gazebos are quick and easy to erect or transport. The sturdy aluminium frame is anodised which protects against all forms of corrosion.

The unique features of our pop up gazebo frames

Heavy duty pop up gazebo frame

Our pop up gazebos have a hard-wearing scissor mechanism that can be unfolded smoothly and is fixed in place by a click system. Opening and closing the frame adds significant torsional pressure to the poles and connectors. Our frames are therefore built to be highly robust, with strong poles connected by heavy duty nylon connectors.

We've paid particular attention to the connectors in our pop up gazebo frames. Thanks to a material composition of polymer composites, similar to those used in the manufacture of aircraft, we've been able to deliver impressive torsion protection and load-bearing capacity.

Polyester or PVC pop up canopies and their features

You have the choice between a high-performance polyester canopy with a PVC coating or a fully PVC fold up gazebo. High-performance polyester tarpaulins with PVC-coating are ca. 300 to 350 g/m2 thick, while the pure PVC tarpaulins of our pop up canopies are ca. 400 g/m2 thick. The service life of tarpaulins is most often defined by the quality of the seams. That’s why we put particular emphasis on ensuring strong, completely waterproof seams. Each seam is sealed with an inconspicuous, transparent tape in a high-temperature process.

Pop up gazebos with a polyester canopy fabric are extremely light, making them easy to transport and assemble. The advantages of pure PVC tarpaulins are an excellent resistance to environmental influences such as strong winds, a high degree of robustness and good performance in cold conditions.

Our pop up gazebo product lines

To ensure that you find exactly the right pop up tent for your purpose we offer folding gazebos in 3 different quality lines: Economy, Premium and Professional. These differ primarily in the material used in the frame (steel or aluminium) and overall strength.

Fire resistant pop up gazebos ideal for professional use

Our PVC pop up canopies have a European certificate for fire safety (EN 13501-1). That makes them ideal if you're hosting a public event or hosting members of the public. Our fire-resistant pop up gazebos are often used in the outdoor areas of pubs, restaurants and cafes. Schools and care homes also carry an increased responsibility to ensure safety on their grounds.

Other common uses for fire-certified pop up gazebos include:

  • As a shelter for catering providers
  • As a smoking tent for your employees
  • At home in your garden with a barbecue or heater under the canopy.

3x3 pop up gazebo or something larger? Our sizes

Dimensions of a 3 x 3 m pop up gazebo

Our pop up tents are available in sizes starting from 3 x 3 m and extending right up to 5 x 5m or 4 x 8 m. Consider beforehand how you want to use your garden canopy. If it's only for 4 people, a small pop up gazebo such as our heavy duty pop up gazebo with sides 3 x 3 m might fit the bill. Our 3 x 4.5 m pop up gazebos are also absolute bestsellers. If you're planning to use the gazebo tent for a commercial purpose it might make sense to measure the amount of space you have available and opt for a large gazebo tent that will provide as much shelter as possible and ensure customers won't miss you. A 6 x 3 m pop up gazebo for instance, might be ideal for use as a market stall.

Pop up gazebos in grey, white, black or something more colourful

A wide range of colourful pop up gazebos

Everyone has their own taste when it comes to pop up tents. White, black and cream pop up gazebos are the most popular colours for our customers. A real bonus of shopping with a specialist dealer however, is that you can choose from a wider range of colours.

A couple of tips that could help you make your choice:

  • Keep in mind that a darker shade of colour impacts the amount of light that filters into your shelter. A lighter shade provides excellent shade while also maintaining a practical and warm light-incidence.
  • On the other hand, darker shades have the advantage of masking small spots of dirt and grease. That makes them ideal for use in professional settings.

Blue pop up gazebos look fantastic at a market or trade fair for example. That's especially the case if it matches with your brand identity. A green pop up gazebo is a good choice for natural settings, where you don't want to bring attention to the pop up tent. That makes them ideal for use as a catering shelter or work tent in natural surroundings.

A grey pop up canopy meanwhile looks sleek and modern. It allows you to demonstrate professionalism to potential customers, while also giving your signage more prominence.

Popular uses like market stalls, garden shade or event tent

If you're up at the crack of dawn for a market or event, you don't want to spend a long time assembling and transporting a market stall. With a pop up folding tent, assembly is quick and easy and can be achieved alone. A commercial pop up gazebo provides instant shelter for goods and clearly distinguishes the sales area from other stands. If you know you'll be spending a lot of time outside, 100% waterproof PVC canopies will be essential. We have a range of suitable market stalls for sale. PVC is available for our Premium and Professional pop up tents.

A pop up marquee for at home in the garden

Pop up gazebo to enjoy some shade in the garden

If you need the flexibility to spontaneously host a garden party at the weekend, that's no problem. With a pop up gazebo, you can act fast and even adapt plans if the weather turns sour. This way no summer party will fall through.

You'll quickly discover how useful the garden tent is and you'll get much more out of your purchase than the odd weekend party. For example, it makes a perfect canopy for barbecue dinners and can provide shade and shelter for children playing outdoors. Use it as a beach canopy or on the patio for family get-togethers. Even if rain arrives you won't need to let it spoil the party.

Alternatively, you might want to use it as a shelter providing sunshade for outdoor garden furniture or deck chairs.

Ideal for outdoor events and sport clubs...

Pop up gazebo for sports teams

Show your spectators some appreciation with an outdoor sport canopy to provide some shelter from morning drizzle or the harsh UV rays from the mid-afternoon sun. The tent will see plenty of use, whether at games, trainings, open days or club events. They're great for events of all kinds including staff parties or school fairs and galas.

...or as a pop up workshop tent

Pop up gazebo for professional use

Foldable gazebos are incredibly versatile. That makes them useful for a wide range of uses. At home, a pop up tent might provide shelter over the hot tub or keep firewood dry. The event tent can also be used as an awning for a caravan, as an instant camping tent or a home base at open-air festivals.

Businesses will also find a multitude of uses for their pop up tent. Fitness studios use our easy up gazebos for outdoor training on exercise machines. An industrial pop up gazebo may come in handy as a shelter on construction sites or as a pop up workshop tent for engineering crews carrying out maintenance on machinery on site.

How to put up a pop up gazebo

Pop up gazebo assembly

Assembling a pop up tent is easy. Thanks to the heavy duty scissor mechanism, all it takes is 2 minutes with 1-2 people. One person assembly of a pop up gazebo is possible but you will need to work patiently, particularly while opening the roof frame. Pop up gazebo instructions are included in the delivery and no tools are needed. If you'd like to secure the folding tent to the ground, a hammer may be useful.

Before you start, if you're in an outdoor environment ensure you have a level, even surface to support the legs of the tent. If necessary, paving slabs can be used to create an even surface.

Pull the scissor mechanism of the pop up canopy apart slightly to a half open position. Then place the roof tarpaulin over the frame. Velcro fasteners in the corners connect the roof to the frame. Now gradually pull the legs further apart. If help is on hand, stand opposite each other whilst doing this. The gazebo tent should be pulled out until the robust click-in system is locked - if necessary, simply push the scissor framework upwards so that it locks in place. Then adjust the legs to the desired height. Last of all, side panels can be installed. That's it!

Pop up gazebo weights and accessories

Weight pockets for pop up gazebos

We have a wide range of pop up gazebo accessories for optimising your easy up gazebo. Pop up gazebo weights, in the form of sand bags or weighted foot plates significantly increase the weight of the pop up tent, ensuring that it won't fly away with the wind. The sandbags for instance can be filled up to a weight of roughly 25 kgs each, totalling a weight of 100 kgs across the full structure.

To all sandbags

For even more protection we recommend tie down straps that connect to the corners of the canopy and anchor to the ground at an angle of 45 degrees. These come with ratchets that allow you to maintain tension in all four directions.

3 m awning for pop up gazebos

An awning attaches to the canopy providing extra shade and shelter at the front of the tent. These are ideal when used together with a half-height side wall for a market stall or information stand. You can find awnings and half height side walls in different colours, alongside connecting brackets and a carry bag set amongst our full collection of pop up gazebo accessories.

Frequently asked questions about pop up gazebos

How can I decorate a pop up gazebo?

For decorating a pop up gazebo there are two important words: bunting and lighting. Colourful bunting brightens up the pop up shelter during the day and is an easy way to add a touch of fun and celebration to your easy up gazebo. At night time, fairly lights, lanterns and festoon lights in particular are an excellent way to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. You can read more tips about gazebo lighting in our magazine article Creating atmospheric light for your gazebo.

Our professional quality pop up gazebo with a fireproof heavy duty PVC roof is top of the range. The canopy is made of a 620 g/m2 high-quality PVC with an inner grid fabric that is highly resistant to tears and stretching. It features a strong aluminium frame, bolted connections and comes with a practical roller bag for easy transport.

There are just a few things you'll need to set up a market stall. First things first, you'll need a trader's licence. These are purchased from the local council, although there is often a waiting list for popular markets. You will also need to have a market stand. A foldable gazebo used with a half-height side wall is an excellent option. The half-height side wall allows you to store things under your table and present a clean tidy front to customers. You can read more about setting up as a market trader on our magazine article checklist for your own market stall.

Pop up gazebos are designed to be easy and quick to pop up and fold away. Professional pop up gazebos can withstand wind and rain but are not designed to be left standing over the long term. We recommend folding the tent up when not in use. For this, a gazebo cover is useful, allowing you to fold it up and protect it from the elements without needing to fully disassemble it.

Yes - if necessary, it's possible for one person to erect a pop up tent by themselves. However, we do recommend that two people work together to set it up. More hands make light work!

A pop up canopy with sides is put up in the same manner as a pop up shelter without sides. The side panels are then attached to the fully erected structure. Side panels attach to the frame with either plastic hooks or Velcro straps. For all models other than Economy aluminium, it is also possible to connect the side panels with another using either Velcro or zips (depending on the model).
