Zimstone is often asked why we carry different aluminium 2m x 2m gazebos (namely the Petite and Standard 2m x 2m) in our Gazebo range. As top end manufacturer of Portable Display Equipment that designs our own products, a great deal of thought has gone into meeting our customers’ needs.

The simple answer is that while both open to give a 4 m2 area undercover, the petite gazebo frame is far more portable when collapsed. With a collapsed height of 122 cm, it can fit width ways into a standard car boot. The main benefit of a folding gazebo over, say, a pole marquee, is that it doesn’t require any manual assembly of the framework, and is literally popped up for use.

Both frames weigh 10 kgs and are sold standard with a slip cover bag and an eco (economy) toolkit (which consists of 4 secure ropes and 4 pegs)*.

Where gazebos need to be more portable (i.e. markets, estate agents, school functions) the petite 2m x 2m gazebo is recommended. For other outdoor events, sports fixtures or exhibitions the 2m Standard 2m gazebo is recommended. The aluminium hardware, though very light and portable, withstands battering from wind to a much better degree than either steel or fiberglass products.

The hexagonal legs and cross-arms of both versions are EXACTLY the same (the identical aluminium extrusions and connectors) and both have the same strength characteristics. The petite version on its highest leg setting opens to a maximum height of 207cm while the standard 2m x 2m version opens to 240cm.

Be part of the green planet – our aluminium is 60% stronger than competitor aluminium portable display products. Our gazebos are manufactured in SADC and are made from 100% recycled material, which in turn are 100% recyclable. Furthermore, we are able to repair our gazebo’s and minimize landfill waste. Hence this is a green product.
