Comparing the frames - how to decide between steel & aluminium.
The heavy duty frames of our gazebos are made of either fully galvanised steel or aluminium. Both are extremely robust and durable, and suitable for outdoor use. Aluminium is lighter than steel, making it easier to handle and transport. Steel is a very heavy duty material, that is highly unlikely to bend or break with knocks and impacts. On the other hand, it is generally a lot heavier than aluminium, and will require 2 or more people for set up and transport. You also have the option of either square or hexagonal profile poles.
Pop up gazebos come in 3 different quality classes: Economy, Premium, and Professional. For Economy gazebos, the poles have a square profile, and come in steel or aluminium. All Premium frames are made of steel, with a thicker hexagonal profile. Professional gazebos have aluminium frames, with a hexagonal profile. All of our pop up tents have hard-wearing waterproof canopy tarpaulins. The weight and thereby the strength of the canopy material increases with the quality of the product.

Here are some of the uses, for which white gazebos are particularly favoured:Show more Show less
- While party tents (marquees) are the obvious choice for a wedding reception, a white pop up gazebo is ideal for use in a garden ceremony.
- As a market stall at flea markets, farmers markets or antiques markets. For some markets, it is a requirement that outdoor vendors use a plain white tent.
- As a patio tent or shelter for the barbecue or hot tub. Family parties and get-togethers on the patio are all the more relaxing when guests can relax on garden furniture under the shade of a gazebo.
- As sun and rain protection at sports events. White tents are particularly suitable for summer sports. They are often used by clubs for cricket, lawn bowls, golf and tennis.
- As a shade for those working in outdoor areas, or for tending to the garden.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What materials are used for the roof of the gazebo?
Pop up Gazebos generally have a fully waterproof canopy made of high quality polyester. The quality of the canopy is determined, in large part, by the weight of the tarpaulin. Heavier, thicker tarpaulins are more robust. The weight, measured in grams per square metre, increases from 300g/m² for Economy pop up tents to 400g/m² for Professional canopy tents. Premium and Professional models can be purchased from House of Tents with an even stronger PVC tarpaulin. This heavy duty roof tarpaulin is much heavier, with a weight of 620g/m².
How do I keep my gazebo from blowing away?
Pop up gazebos are, as a rule, not designed to withstand wild weather. On the other hand, they are designed to be easy to fold up should a storm come in. To protect against a breeze or light winds, there are a number of options. Guy ropes and pegs are included in the delivery. If you set the gazebo up on the lawn, a tie down kit with ratchet straps will be far more effective at keeping the structure grounded. For hard surfaces, sand bags, metal foot plates, or adapted gazebo tent feet, with heavy duty flanges for use with concrete slabs are all available in our selection of anchoring accessories.
How many sidewalls come with the pop up gazebo?
How many side walls you have with your gazebo is really up to you! We have products on offer that have a full set of 4 sidewalls, and others that have 2. In addition, you have the option of buying a gazebo without side panels. If buying a pop up tent with side walls you can select a number of variants, including side panels with panorama windows, arched windows, or doors.
Can you leave a gazebo up overnight?
Leaving a pop up gazebo standing overnight is not recommended. First of all, the gazebo will be in danger of damage in case of unexpected bad weather. Secondly, there is a strong possibility of condensation forming under the canopy. You can read more about this topic in our magazine article condensation in tents. The best solution for keeping your outdoor gazebo tent safe overnight is to fold it up and pop a waterproof gazebo cover over the tarpaulin and frame. Quick and easy protection in the garden, without needing to move it in and out of storage each day.
What is the difference between a pop up gazebo and a garden gazebo?
A Garden gazebo has a fixed metal frame that is permanently bolted to concrete foundations in your garden. A Garden gazebo can either have a tarpaulin canopy or a hardtop roof, with polycarbonate panels that can remain in place throughout the winter. This makes garden gazebos the obvious answer if you're looking for a permanent, or semi-permanent structure for the garden. Pop up gazebos are portable, and afford you a great deal of flexibility. You can host outdoor parties as easily at the beach as in your own home! Party tents, otherwise known as marquees, can be a good middle road. They are more wind resistant and can be left standing for a period of days or even weeks.
Are pop up gazebos suitable for camping trips?
Heavy duty gazebos are useful for family camping trips. They can be transported easily - just pop them in the carry bag that is included in delivery. They are often used as an additional shelter for storage, or for relaxing in camping chairs or other furniture. Removable awnings are useful for providing more shade and shelter. The awning attaches via plastic clasps, and a durable Velcro strip. The awning fits all 3m x 3m and 3m x 4m models.
