How can I affix my gazebo to the ground?

Did you know that if you don’t affix your gazebo to the ground, it can fly away with the wind?

An unfixed gazebo, if exposed to strong winds, can break and cause damage to people and the environment!

GazeboFlash reminds you that affixing the structure to the ground through ballast or tie rods and pegs is mandatory..

For this reason, among other accessories Gazebo Flash also offers a complete range for anchoring.

Tie rods and pegs: you will be provided with a first kit of tie rods and pegs, consisting of 4 nylon fibre ropes complete with pegs in chromed steel of about 20cm, suitable for fixing on soft surfaces. A professional kit consisting of 38cm ratchet and steel pegs is also available, complete with eyebolts for greater stability and safety in windier conditions.

Ballasts:we offer three different types of ballasts for anchoring to hard surfaces: 15kg cast iron, modular according to the required weight, or refillable with water or sand, with fabric or plastic ballast (3L – 12L)

How does the wind affect my structure? What precautions should be taken in case of wind?

Do you know the Beaufort Wind Scale??

Having it in hand can help you understand how to best fix your gazebo to the ground in all weather conditions.

The fixing of the structure to the ground through ballast or tie rods and pegs is  mandatory..

When you purchase a Gazebo Flash gazebo, not only will the structure you have chosen arrive at your home, but also a first anchoring kitwith 4 nylon fibre ropes complete with chromed steel pegs of about 20cm, suitable for fixing on soft surfaces. This first solution will guarantee you an anchoring on soft ground in situations of calm, light wind or light breeze.

However, depending on the environmental situation and its corresponding wind effect, different and indicated anchoring and fixing systems exist.

Gazebo Flash offers a wide range of tie rods, pegs and ballasts in both cast iron and plastic and ensures the anchoring of a structure up to the fourth degree of the wind scale with 45kg ballasts.

Below we have created a table for you with the relative indications depending on the strength and effect of the wind from the Beaufort Scale..

How long does a Gazebo Flash gazebo last?

Are you tired of structures that are not stable or that break easily?

A Gazebo Flash gazebo is a unique product, in which the construction solutions and the materials used are at the highest level in quality and durability. Ordinary maintenance is reduced to a minimum, thus allowing you to keep the gazebo perfectly functional and beautiful over time, with a few simple operations.

For extended gazebo life it is sufficient to follow a few simple steps:

  1. Wash and dry the profiles  at least once a year and perform a preventative visual check of the integrity of the structure at each installation
  2. Keep the cover and any walls clean, wash it with soap and water at least 2-3 times a year and take care, once dry and not used, to put it in the special protective bag, to avoid contact with dust.
  3. Always ballastor affix  your gazebo to the ground during use, it is mandatory and, in the event of wind, it will make your structure stable, reducing the risk of breakage.

Is the roof fabric of a Gazebo Flash gazebo fireproof?

Of course!!

Our fireproof fabrics are equipped with class 1 fireproofing certification issued by the Ministry of the Interior.

We at Gazebo Flash guarantee the required standards to ensure maximum quality and safety for all our customers!

Is the roof fabric of a Gazebo Flash gazebo waterproof?

Yes, all the fabrics of the gazebos of the Basic, Plus, Premium e Deluxe series are  waterproof.

Moreover, thanks to the particular double stitching on the joints of the roof with a “lip” system, with a tape of the same fabric as the roof, water infiltration is averted and your roof will be even more resistant!

What material is a Gazebo Flash gazebo made of?

We at GazeboFlash use only resistant and long-lasting materials, which allow the structures to last over time, both in the cases of occasional and frequent use.

Gazebo Flash gazebos are composed of an anodised aluminium structure, resistant to corrosion and wear, bearing legs with square or hexagonal section, ABS joints and a safety bayonet locking system.

The  cover sheets  can be made of polyester or PVC. They are fire retardant and waterproof, resistant to traction, breakage, tear and light!

How many people and how long does it take to assemble a Gazebo Flash gazebo?

Assembling and disassembling a Gazebo Flash gazebo is very simple and fast, you only need two people and 60 seconds!!

But how do you assemble a Gazebo Flash gazebo?

  1. Open the structure slightly and arrange the covering sheet starting from the 4 corners (each corner of the roof can be recognised by its double eyelet).
  2. Position two people at the front on the shorter sides of the gazebo and open the structure by pulling at the central scissor mechanism, moving backwards until it is completely open.
  3. Make sure that the roof is positioned correctly and lift each corner joint firmly until the structure locks.
  4. Pull the locking ring on the foot and lower the inner part of the support leg. Adjust each leg to the same height. When using the walls, make sure that you have reached the extent that the sheets do not touch the ground.
  5. Finally, secure the structure to the ground through ballast or tie rods and pegs.

And how do I dismantle a Gazebo Flash structure? Nothing could be simpler!

  1. Lower the gazebo by pulling the locking rings of the feet to raise the internal parts of the supporting legs.
  2. Finally, unlock the bayonets of the corner joints to allow the structure to close.
  3. Put everything in the special bag.

How to use and store your gazebo correctly

To make sure that your Gazebo Flash structure lasts longer and does not get damaged, just follow a few steps that we propose below.

Cleaning and maintenance of sheets:
To keep the fabrics of your gazebo in perfect shape, simply clean and dry the sheets before folding them. In case of excessive dirt, you can clean with NON-aggressive soaps and rinse with warm water. Finally, avoid closing wet sheets as humidity could cause the appearance of spots and discolouration of any prints.

Storage area:
Before closing your gazebo, make sure that the structure is cleaned of any traces of dirt that could hinder or limit the sliding of the opening and closing mechanism. Then place your gazebo inside its bag, which will be supplied to you, and store it in a vertical position, possibly in a dry and clean place.

To ensure the absence of any damage to the structure, it is preferable to transport the gazebo in a vertical position, especially if the roof is still mounted. If this is not possible, and the structure is spread out, try not to overlap weights.

Spare parts:
If any element of your gazebo becomes worn or breaks, Gazebo Flash can provide all the spare parts you need.
