A waterproof gazebo is a great item to have on hand. They are ideal for parties and large events, as they provide shelter from the elements as well as shade. Friends and family can gather underneath the gazebo and enjoy the celebration without worrying about a chance of rain or wind spoiling the event. They are also practical for camping, where they can be used as a tent canopy. There is a wide range of waterproof gazebos available and they come in many different sizes with various features.Materials of Waterproof Gazebos
A waterproof marquee is often made from polyethylene or polyester with iron structures for added strength and durability. Polyethylene allows water to drain off the tent freely, keeping everyone inside safe and dry. Keep in mind that in case of heavy rain this runoff may seep into the floor of the marquee, so if you want to ensure this does not occur, you could purchase some marquee flooring with a hard floor recommended for wet weather events. If the weather will be fine, then a coconut matting floor is a cheaper option. If you will be using the gazebo for camping, then you should also look for a SPF50+ rated material, as this will provide protection against UV rays and ensure a longer service life. Some gazebos only have a canopy, whilst others come with side walls included for all weather protection. It may also be possible to add side walls at a later stage by purchasing them separately but you should ensure that they are also made from waterproof material.Durability
Waterproof shelters are made to different quality standards and the price often reflects this. If you are after the most durable option available, you should be prepared to spend a little bit more. Heavy duty marquees will be made from a thicker material and the supports will have a solid feel for increased strength and stability. Steel frames are often the best choice and you should also look for a seam sealed canopy. Less expensive models will be more than adequate for the majority of people, but if you plan to use your marquee extensively over many years, then it might be a good idea to invest in a heavy duty one.Sizing of Waterproof Marquees
Waterproof marquees come in a wide range of sizes, ranging from small market stall sizes through to large outdoor event sizes. Many of these will feature adjustable legs and the ability to lock them at your desired height. However, you should consider your usage case. A waterproof 3x3m gazebo is a good size for taking camping if you want some shade. A large gazebo is typically around 3x9m, and this will accomodate about 40 people, making it perfect for weddings and parties.Sandbag Weights and Set Up
Most gazebos are easy to setup and pack away but a larger one may take a little bit more time. Larger sized tents may also have zippered windows and side walls which can help with ventilation and improve the atmosphere inside. pop up gazebos are a good choice if you want to save time, as they can be popped up without walls to provide you with instant shade. If you will be using your gazebo in gusty conditions, then it is advisable to use sandbag weights to anchor the legs of the gazebo. This will prevent the gazebo from moving around in the wind and potentially causing damage.
