Sorry, we can only supply you with a choice of our Tuscany 3m x 3m or our Provence 3m x 4m or our Andalucia 3m x 6m
Our canopies are designed with our unique tensioning system and shaped to our timber framework. They will not fit any other framework. Our canopies are designed to last 20 years, at least. Sorry, we are unable to supply you with a bespoke size canopy.
Our choices of side screen are designed to fit White Pavilion gazebos only. We are unable to supply a bespoke sized screen.
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.
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
The expected service life of our canopies is over 20 years. We guarantee the canopy for 5 years. Since 2007 we have sold nearly 2,000 gazebos. We have never had to replace a failed canopy.
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.
Of course you can, a five-minute job, but why? Many of our customers like to use their White Pavilion gazebo all year round. The canopy is designed to last 20 plus years. But it can be simply removed by undoing the fastening bolts - 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. To keep it pristine, use very dilute mild detergent and thoroughly rinse off with the hosepipe a few times a year - do not use abrasives, solvents or a power washer - see self-cleaning images.
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. Or you can attach standard guttering to the timber cross beam. Also, we can supply a rain channel to go between the gazebo and your house or to go between two gazebos. see Rain Channel- no drips
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, The PVC coated polyester fabric is 100% waterproof and will withstand temperature extremes from -30 degrees celsius to +70 degrees celsius.
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.
We use Osmose Naturewood™. This water-based product has been used in Europe for over 20 years and complies with the relevant British and European Standards including the new BS8417. Visit (www.osmose.co.uk)
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 14 to 28 working days, but during our busiest periods, it can take longer. Sometimes we can shuffle our delivery dates so do let us know if you have a preferred date. Special order items such as colours will depend on our fabricator's schedule and can take as much as 6 weeks.
We could include a standard delivery price 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 400 kilos and come on the special double pallet ( 2.40 m x 0.80 m ) so we have to use a commercial carrier with a tail-lift vehicle who charges commercial rates. If you have a suitable vehicle you are welcome to collect from us - Malton, North Yorkshire YO17 9HQ.
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.
GAS HEATERS The intense heat could lead to canopy damage. Also heat from a gas heater will blow away in the slightest breeze, heating your garden instead of you. Very expensive to run.
INFRARED HEATING, 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 of the brand leader [ which failed ] the only heater we know that will not damage the timber and your canopy is one made in the UK. For more information see our INFRARED HEATING.
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. Our gazebos have withstood Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Daisy & Hurricane Ophelia. In fact, we have never had any of our nearly 2,000 gazebos damaged by Hurricane winds. There is no other gazebo you can buy as tough as a White Pavilion Gazebo - see Hurricane proof
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 damage the eyelets.
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.
Even in high wind conditions, any draught is virtually none existent. Assuming, of course, you have side screens in place.
Planning permission for our gazebos 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.
The image below shows a Tuscany 3m x 3m gazebo in Gerrards Cross, on top of a 2 step timber deck and located within 2 metres of the boundary.
Because of its location, within 2 metres of a boundary, it was outside the automatically approved 'permitted development' rules. i.e. over the 2.50 metre height limit. Planners visited this customer after a 'moan' from a neighbour. They liked it and gave approval. Our gazebos are often placed within 2 metres of the boundary, with our customers taking the view that if it ever becomes a planning issue they will apply retrospectively. The standard overall height of our gazebos is 2.80 metres so technically are 30 cm (12") too tall.
Siting your gazebo, with the nearest leg, 2 metres or more from the boundary is within your 'permitted development rules', so does not normally require a planning application.
Over the last 10 years, we have never had a planning refusal simply because the gazebo is sited too close to a boundary. So in our customers experience the planners always give approval as you can see with this example, they are not concerned with the minutia ( i.e. 30cm 12" )
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. I designed the gazebo to make 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. see our EASY BUILD VIDEO
To make it more secure we include a stainless steel box section and construction Ankerbolts for attaching to your patio, timber decking or in your garden. Please note, a premium quality gazebo is always securely attached to the ground. A White Pavilion Gazebo will survive hurricane force winds.
Our White Pavilion Garden Gazebos are designed to be dismantled and reinstalled. Don't leave it behind when you move house.
Most of our customers choose to self-install, often with family and friends. Our instructions do work! In the unlikely event of you needing that extra bit of help, we are here, just in case.
We have a number of recommended installers, call us to see if we have one to cover your area - 01653 695 285
A wash with diluted mild detergent and rinse off with the hosepipe, a few times a year will keep it looking good. Best to remove bird dropping as soon as possible, as you would with your car. Do NOT use chemicals, abrasives or a power washer as this will damage the acrylic protection.
Very Important Regularly check and clear drain holes in each corner rafter end. These holes allow for excess water to drain away and can easily become blocked. Timber in 'constant' contact with water will rot over time. Temperature changes can occasionally lead to the slackening of a nut. We suggest you check your nuts once or twice a year.
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.”
