These popular shelters are back in stock again.
Our Core Shelters offer great protection from the NZ sun and rain. A portable gazebo built for NZ and our changeable local conditions. Tried and tested - continually one of our best sellers every year since 2012. Great for summer days at the beach, family picnics at the park or as your camping HQ.
The shelters are 4.5m x 4.5m with a max height of 2.4m providing 20sqm of coverage. Also includes 1 side wall which is easily clipped on to any of the side arches. A range of accessories like walls, floors, rooms and connectors means you can choose a setup that suits your needs
Our shelters are made for NZ conditions, using tough durable 150D Oxford covers to stand up to NZ's damaging sun (twice thickness or many lower Denier shelters which pretty quickly break down and become 'brittle' and tear easily - read about tent fabrics and specifications) and with UV resistant coating.
To suit our changeable weather, our shelters are waterproof with a PU3000mm coating and taped seams to keep rain out. The ceiling vent allows better airflow and avoids lifting in winds and heat build-up.
Build your own HQ with accessories including sidewalls, walls with entrance, groundsheets, enclosed rooms, and connecting gutters to join multiple shelters.
Straightforward to set up and once familiar would take 2 people about 15 minutes. Can also be set up by one person but just takes a bit longer. Connect the 19mm steel poles, lock the pole sections into place, place the cover over the top and secure with Velcro tabs and hooks at corner feet, and set guy ropes..
