When you purchase a Maximus gazebo, you'll receive everything you need to assemble and use the structure.

This includes:

  • Powder-coated steel frame
  • Anti-UV and waterproof canopy
  • (4) Removable side panels
  • Stakes and ropes
  • Storage bag

When shopping, you'll have your choice for four color options:

  • Beige

If you're looking for a bold, bright gazebo for a children's birthday party or similar, you won't find it in a Maximus gazebo. However, these neutral color choices are attractive and suitable for all situations and locations, including your garden.


Features

The Maximus gazebo comes with a steel frame that's been powder coated for extra durability. This heavy-duty frame will withstand light to moderate winds, so it's ideal for many uses.

The waterproof canopy is made of 600D PVC. This is quite impressive as many other competitors use inferior materials rated up to about 420D. This material is stronger, so it will last longer and provide better protection. 

You'll be shielded from the rain when under the canopy, but you'll also be guarded against the sun's harsh UV rays. This canopy provides 99% sun protection, so it's a must for hot, summer days.

Measuring 3m x 3m, this Maximus gazebo has a compact footprint, but it still offers plenty of space for get-togethers of all kinds. Use it to provide protection to you and guests at a market stall, or invite friends over for lunch or dinner in your garden.

 It offers enough space for outdoor furniture including tables and chairs, so it's also a good choice for wedding parties, picnics, sporting events, and more.

The Maximus gazebo has three height settings, which you can easily adjust with push-button controls. You don't have to worry about prying apart bars and possibly pinching your fingers. 

Instead, just press the button to release the legs and raise or lower them as you please. When extended to its highest setting, the gazebo measures 241 cm tall. At its lowest, it measures 223 cm tall.

At the bottom of each leg, you'll find a small flat platform. These flat feet offer the Maximus gazebo stability over both soft and hard ground. This means you don't have to worry about the gazebo sinking or tipping over when you position it over grass or dirt.

The Maximus gazebo is a versatile product that allows for easy customization to fit your needs. If it's a warm, sunny day, you might set it up with just the canopy. But if the weather is cooler or you're expecting rain, you can attach its four PVC walls, which are included with your purchase. 

Two of the walls include church-style windows, and the other two feature zippered doors. The walls attach using Velcro, and you can choose to hang as many as you'd like, whether it's just one to block the sun or all four to stay dry. 

Also included with your purchase is a handy storage bag. It makes it easy to transport your Maximus gazebo from place to place and will protect it while it's in storage. 

Assembly

One of the best things about this pop-up canopy is that it requires absolutely no tools for assembly. You can put it together yourself if you have to, but the job is much easier when there are at least two people.

To assemble it, all you have to do is remove it from its packaging and lay out all its parts. Pick up the folded frame and stand it upright. If you have a friend, each of you grab one side and slowly pull it apart. 

When the frame is mostly extended, grab the canopy and throw it over the top of the roof. Pull it down on all sides until it's even. It will fit loosely, but that's because the frame isn't yet fully extended. Resuming your previous positions, continue extending the frame until it's completely open. At this point, you can go around the canopy and secure it with the attached Velcro straps.

Once the canopy is in place, it's time to extend the legs. The Maximus gazebo offers three heights, and you can easily make adjustments by pressing the push-button controls. Start raising the gazebo on one side, and then do the other to help keep it steady.

If you'd like to attach walls, you'll find that they also go up easily and are secured with more Velcro straps.

All said, it takes less than 15 minutes to assemble the Maximus gazebo. This means it's perfect when you need shelter at the ready. 

To dissemble the Maximus gazebo, you'll follow the same process, just in reverse. First remove the walls and set them aside, and then lower the gazebo to its lowest height. Loosen the canopy's Velcro attachments, and begin folding in the frame.

It's easy to fit your disassembled Maximus gazebo into its storage bag, but note that the bag doesn't have any wheels. Seeing as the gazebo weighs 34 kgs, you'll probably not want to carry it far. But you won't have any trouble fitting it in the boot of your car or in the van.

Value

The Maximus gazebo's price is in line with other top-quality products. What sets it apart from many competitors is its extra-strong PVC material. You can expect it to remain perfectly waterproof and last for years.

The fact that the Maximus gazebo also has integrated legs (one-piece design) is a huge timesaver. It means that you only need to pull out the frame to assemble and not worry about trying to maneuver it around to get legs on. This also makes it easier to get the gazebo up single handedly (if needed).

FAQs

Is it hard to assemble the Maximus gazebo?

No, it is not hard to assemble the Maximus gazebo — you don't even need any tools. As it features a one-piece design, you simply have to pull apart the frame and add the canopy. Even the legs are built into the frame, so you just have to use the push-button adjustments to raise or lower the gazebo to your liking.


How big is the Maximus gazebo?

The Maximus gazebo measures 3m x 3m. This is a standard size and large enough to provide shelter for several people. You'll find plenty of uses for this easy-to-assemble pop-up tent. Take it to the park to provide shelter to playing kids or a sports team. If you sell from a market stall, you can shade your customers to create a more comfortable atmosphere. Of course, you can also set it up in your garden, for use on a short-term basis or months at a time.

Can I keep up the Maximus gazebo all year long?

As long as your Maximus gazebo is properly anchored, you can leave it up as long as you'd like. While these types of collapsible gazebos are generally used for a short while, such as for events, you can definitely use one in your garden for months at a time if you take steps to ensure it won't tip over or blow away. The stakes and rope that come with the gazebo are fine if you live in an area that only gets light or moderate wind, but if you expect stronger gusts, you'll want to invest in sandbag weights or a permanent solution, such as concrete anchors.

Does the Maximus gazebo have windows?

Two of the side panels that come with your Maximus gazebo do have church-style windows, but note that they do not open. These built-in windows are transparent, so you can see in and out of the gazebo, but you cannot open the windows to let in a breeze. The other two side panels come with zippered doors, so if you'd like to allow a breeze, you can simply leave them unzipped. You'll enjoy even more airflow if you roll them up.

Can I add lighting to my Maximus gazebo?

Yes, you can definitely add lighting to your Maximus gazebo. One popular method of brightening things up is to hang string lights. They'll provide a warm, soft glow that's perfect for keeping things comfortable into the night.
