With a polyester material, obviously the lighter the colour chosen, the quicker the material will show the dirt. A pressure washer can be used to "blow" the ingrained dirt away, but we would suggest using the lowest setting first and stubborn stains should be treated with a detergent or washing up liquid and a brush. If the roof is a PVC material it will simply wipe clean and will stand a much higher setting on the pressure washer. Whether the material is Polyester or PVC, wherever possible it should not be packed away wet or damp. I know that this is difficult when you come to the end of a wet day trading and it is still raining as you put your equipment away. However, as soon as it is possible the roof cover should be dried either bu hand or stood out on a pleasant day. This will prevent mildew and mould growth. There is a hearty debate about whether a roof cover should be left on the framework once it has been fitted. It is much faster to erect the structure if the roof cover has been left on and it prevents pulling on seams and corners as well. However, unless you are transporting the frame and roof in a secure bag, I would strongly recommend removing the cover.
This can be both beneficial and disadvantageous. It is useful because the sides must be lifted into place and if they are thinner they do not weigh as much. They will also be cheaper and replacement cost will be less. However, if they are too thin, they will tear easily and if they are too cheap, they will not have many of the features found in the more expensive sides, which can be of huge importance when using the pop up gazebo for commercial purposes. Sides can be purchased individually or as a complete set. They come in different specifications. Plain panel Windowed panel Zipper doorway panel Half side panel Panoramic side Mesh side Most are self-explanatory. The plain panel is a side made from a plain piece of material. The windowed side can range from a large rectangular clear area to a small "mock paned" affair. Some of the larger windowed panels have an interior blind or blanking piece which can be rolled down to cover the see through area. The zipper doorway panel has either a single or a dual zip.
As a general rule, and at the time of writing, steel is cheaper than aluminium, whilst aluminium is lighter when compared like for like. Originally pop up gazebos were manufactured from steel. Over the last few years, aluminium has become the raw material of choice. Steel framework is usually square or rectangular in shape. It can be as small as 25mm in diameter and as large as 32mm. It is not normally larger than this as the framework would be too heavy. The inside wall measurement is 1mm or less. Aluminium can be manufactured into square, rectangular or hexagonal shapes. Technically, a hexagon is stronger than other shapes. Again the diameter of the legs varies from 30mm to 50mm. For example, if the diameter of the hexagonal leg is classed as 50mm, then this is from flat face to flat face. Some state a 60mm diameter, but this is a measurement taken from the point of a hexagon shape to the opposite point. In effect, they are both the same size leg. Again the wall thickness varies from 1mm to 2.5mm. So to the pros and cons of each framework. Steel- generally used on leisure or budget range pop up gazebos Cheaper to buy because of the price of the raw material.
