The PVC coated polyester fabric membrane designed for the commercial tent and marquee trade is a tensile fabric structure that makes it possible to create dramatic, exciting and striking canopies as it offers translucency, is lightweight and uses tension to create the three-dimensional form.
Yes we can. Our most popular colour is white but we can offer a range of different colours, just request a colour swatch to make your choice.
The canopy material is manufactured in Germany by Verseidag, one of the worlds largest producers of tensile fabric. White Pavilion canopies are fabricated in the UK by JJ Carter Ltd, who have been manufacturing tensile fabric structures to exacting standards since 1988 see www.jjcarter.com.
A White Pavilion canopy is designed for a tough environment, -30° celsius to +70° celsius
Our fabricator has been supplying these canopies for over 10 years without a failure. We guarantee the canopy for 5 years. The expected life is over 20 years.
Our gazebos can be attached together, we can supply a rain gutter to fit between each gazebo to give protection from the rain.
We can provide you with extra long legs (2.40 m) to give extra height clearance if necessary and supply rain guttering to match the canopy, to give additional protection from the rain.
Many of our customers like to use their White Pavilion gazebo all year round; the canopy can be simply removed by undoing the fastening bolts, a five-minute job. Replacement is just as easy.
The White Pavilion's unique feature is its translucent canopy. This allows a soft light (85% of natural light) and gives 100% UV protection from the sun, particularly beneficial to schools for their outside classrooms.
Unlike a canvas material the smooth surface makes the canopy almost self clean when it rains. We would recommend removing bird dropping as soon as possible. Use very dilute mild detergent and thoroughly rinse off a few times a year - do not use abrasives, solvents or a power washer.
With the small roof area the amount of rain collected means the drip off is limited. However, you can attach a silicon beading to the canopy above an entrance bay which will direct the run off water to the side.
The pvc material has passed all the relevant fire safety standards for the UK and Europe. It is safe to barbecue under a White Pavilion gazebo, just take the usual sensible precautions.
All timber has natural variations in colour, which can be exaggerated after the preservative treatment process. The appearance will vary from a light green tinge to a natural honey brown before finally fading to a driftwood grey after long-term exposure to the sun.
We only use European Redwood (pinus sylvestris) imported from Sweden.
All the timber is pressure treated to give protection from decay and infestation and has an expected life of up to 30 years.'
Re treatment is not necessary.
Yes, any propriety brand can be applied to the timber, just do what it says on the tin.
As a natural outdoor product the moisture content of the timber will vary according to your local climatic conditions. Splits and swelling may appear and disappear throughout the year, this is normal and does not affect its strength.
The weight of each leg of the gazebo is much less than the weight of an adult, so no problems attaching to your timber decking.
Although stainless steel is much more resistant to corrosion than ordinary carbon or alloy steels, in some circumstances it can corrode. It is ‘stain-less’ not ‘stain-impossible’. Stainless steel resists most oxidising acids and can withstand ordinary rusting. However under some atmospheric conditions in a costal environment tarnishing can occur. This can be easily removed with a stainless steel cleaner. Contact us for more information.
Screens are supplied with stainless steel marine quality turnbuttons that allow for permanent or temporary attachment.
The transparent panels are made from a commercial quality material but by their nature are not as robust as the pvc material. When not in use we recommend either hanging up or rolling up dry.
Allow 2 to 3 weeks, but during our busiest periods, it can take much longer. Sometimes we can shuffle our delivery dates so do let us know if you have a preferred date. Special order items like colours will depend on our fabricator's schedule and can take up to 6 weeks!
We could include delivery in our prices but that would mean some customers would be paying unnecessarily more. We feel that our customers should just pay for their own costs.

Our gazebos weigh up to 350 kilos and come on the special double pallet ( 2.40 m x 1.00 m ), so we have to use a commercial carrier.
We deliver throughout Europe and have shipped as far as Florida and Singapore
The delivery is to the front of your house. The driver is not authorised to break down the delivery and move items.
A delivery pallet truck, used to move your palletised gazebo, is designed with small wheels to move across smooth surfaces. Unfortunately, they will not run on uneven surfaces, gravel or grass. And with the weight of your delivery, it is almost impossible to safely move up or down a slope. Kindly let us know if you have any of these issues.
The intense heat from gas heaters could lead to canopy damage. Heat from a gas heater will blow away in the slightest breeze, heating your garden instead of you. Infrared heat, as we get from the sun, heats objects not the air, so warms you and your furniture no matter what the wind does. There are a number of infrared heaters on the market but after extensive testing the only heater we know that will not damage the timber and your canopy is one we can supply. For your added reassurance it's made in the UK.
The 1500w infrared heater we recommend is waterproof IP 55 rated, which means it can be safely fitted outside. Made in the UK.
For added safety, we recommend the fitting of a residual circuit breaker type C.
All White Pavilion gazebos have a discrete channel which hides light, heater and speaker cables.
The fitting is straightforward but we would always recommend using a qualified electrician.
Our gazebos are designed to resist high winds and have regularly survived wind speeds in excess of 100 mph. There is normally no need to remove the canopy. If you are concerned about flying debris the canopy can easily be removed, a 5 minute job. With the screens rolled up it allows the wind to freely pass through. The screens are very tough but constant wind buffering can lead to damage
Not an issue because of the strength of the construction and the exceptionally strong canopy. It can take the weight of a person, in fact with its smooth surface snow slides off.
Planning permission is not usually required, even in defined Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A White Pavilion Garden Gazebo is viewed as being similar to a greenhouse or garden shed. If you are unsure and would like some advice contact us on, 01653 695 285.
A White Pavilion comes complete with all the fixings, instructions and pre drilled timber. This makes installation quite easy for the average DIY person. We would suggest a two-person team, our two smaller gazebos take about half a day to install.
To make it more secure we include a stainless steel box section and anchorbolts for attachment to your chosen base.
Our White Pavilion Garden Gazebos are designed to be dismantled and reinstalled. Don't leave it behind when you move house.
We have a number of recommended installers who can also lay down timber decking and construct patios.
A wash with a dilute mild detergent a few times a year will keep it looking good. Best to remove bird dropping as soon as possible.
Temperature changes can occasionally lead to the slackening of a nut. We suggest you check your nuts once or twice a year. Regularly check and clear drain holes in each rafter.
If you feel dissatisfied in any way of course you can. We need total customer satisfaction. Subject to your statutory rights under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 any amendments, are not affected by any of our terms and conditions.
"Just to let you know that your tough gazebos shrugged off yesterdays 115 mph storm without a problem. I wish the rest of the Scillies had done so well.”
