1. Benefits of a Poptent Gazebo for Outdoor Workers

    When it comes to Autumn and Winter the weather turns drastically and any reliability we had in the forecast is quickly diminished. Long evenings draw to a close and we have shorter days and even fewer of them dry. In this instance it is imperative that you are able to carry on working given the unreliability in the weather.

    This is where a Poptents heavy duty gazebo can help. Using a Poptent can allow you to create a work station where you can continue to work outside whether it be setting up a chop saw or covering an area of a patio to lay. Poptents are perfect for many trades including joiners, kitchen fitters and landscapers as the temporary pop up structure can be set up in a matter of minutes and create a dry environment.

  4. Poptents Pop Up Gazebos Ued for Covid Testing

    Throughout the pandemic Poptents pop up gazebos have been used to provide a temporary pop up shelter in order to administer vaccinations and provide Covid testing. This has been ramped up over the Winter period with greater numbers of Poptents gazebos being used throughout the country by multiple health organisations. The most popular size has been the 3m x 3m pop up gazebo although the 3m x 4.5m and 3m x 6m has also proved popular depending on the individual circumstance. We are now seeing more pop up tents being used for workplace testing, such as on construction sites and even schools.

    We anticipate this trend to continue throughout the Winter period as testing appears to move to self-testing/workplace testing. Poptents gazebos can provide a quick to erect, strong and stable pop up shelter for Covid testing in a range of sizes to suit your specific space and need.
