The Altegra Hex Frame is a design that makes our premium gazebos and marquees so reliable for so long. Altegra pioneered the hexagonal aluminium frame in Australia with the introduction of our Heavy-Duty 50mm, 3x3m gazebo in 2004. It has relished rigorous testing and extensive use by HRIA-listed rental companies, commercial gazebo and marquee users, and by many valued long-term customers.
Finding the right balance between integrity and weight is crucial for heavy duty shade structures to ensure they remain portable. This is especially true for large-span marquees like our 3m x 6m and our 4m x 8m folding marquees.
It is our Hexagonal, extruded aluminium leg design and engineered aluminium trusses that delivers significant strength without the burden of excessive weight. So packing and transporting your heavy duty portable shade structure can still be manageable.
Our “flute-cut” brushed aluminium leg finish is also designed to minimise the challenge of folding marquee set up. Large portable shade tents are hard enough to erect without additional challenges. Our finish assists in reducing friction between frame joints and the leg to avoid sticking.
We employ 2 types of connecting joint materials, an ABS Polymer to keep things light or an endlessly robust aluminium joint. Both use the time-tested pull ring mechanism for setup and adjustability. A simple design that we’ve returned to after imposing extensive testing to other designs.
We’ve been hard at work testing and evolving our frames and joints since their introduction in 2004. And now we’re so confident in the aluminium frames that we back them with unheard-of Lifetime Warranties!
The Altegra Premium Steel range is our affordable gazebo model that is awarded many of the high-end features of our premium aluminium range – although, without a high price tag.
Our Premium Steel range is the go-to for the gazebo user who seeks a better quality gazebo though prefers to keep it cost-effective. We’ve designed our steel range to be affordable but not to lose out on reliability.
The Altegra Premium Steel gazebo frame sits on 29mm x 29mm square steel legs for a strong foundation. The folding gazebo upper frame is also constructed using sturdy steel. All steel parts are powder-coated to ensure their weather-resistance, avoiding rust and premature loss of integrity.
Light and strong ABS Polymer joints connect the steel folding frame together. We choose Polymer joints as they’re long lasting and are impressively robust while not adding significant weight.
Our affordable Premium Steel gazebo frames are also 100% rebuildable from the ground up. We carry all spare parts locally in the event of accident. Which means you get to keep your investment for longer.
Altegra Premium Steel, money well spent.
The Altegra Compact Canopy is the innovation that earned us international recognition and acclaim.
Our 2+ year R&D journey in pursuit of a more packable design without compromising strength has resulted in a customer favourite. This is a robust, lightweight, elegant, and packable 3x3m gazebo.
The design includes an additional stage of telescoping legs and double-crossbow scissor-frame upper. Which helps the gazebo pack down to a tiny 93cm high, making for an extremely portable UPF50+ shade tent.
It’s a huge favourite for use as a beach or picnic tent, as a market stall tent, and as the ultimate camping gazebo.
We took our Compact Canopy frame design to Germany to pit it against the world’s best gazebos. The most reputable and competitive global outdoors show. We’re proud to have been awarded the prestigious innovation award for our Compact Canopy frame – a design that we based on our customer’s feedback.
Your portable shelter’s roof must shield you from rain, wind, and the irrepressible Australian sun. Our challenge is to protect you, your family, club, or employees from all types of weather and to make it look great while doing so.
The Altegra Elite canopy defines superior quality for portable pop up tents. We’ve selected high-grade Polyester with a PVC internal lining as the fabric of choice – a wear-resistant, waterproof, and sun-protective fabric that’s also pliable for easy folding. At 330+ GSM (550+ Denier), it’s a fabric density that offers extensive protection and lasts.
Our canopy design is thoughtful and well-considered. We’ve combatted tearing and wear from friction with internal reinforcement panels. We use high-tensile double-stitching to keep sewn lines intact and robust. We then treat all stitching with seam-sealing to keep water out.
Colour-fast for canopies that last. Our range of in-stock colours remains vibrant, far longer than the rest. But it’s our custom-printed dye-sublimation that takes the cake – epic colours that relish the sun.
The Altegra Elite canopy makes for a quality portable shelter that you will love.
The Altegra Elite canopy is tested and certified by ARPANSA, Australia’s authority on sun protection. The Cancer Council’s “SunSmart” program relies on ARPANSA for accurate testing and daily UV levels.
UPF50+ Excellent is the highest rating offered for shade protection. Which means you’re covered for all-day protection by your Altegra gazebo or marquee canopy.

We’re proud to offer our customers the best quality shelter and the best warranties to back your decisions. The Altegra Elite Canopy is covered with our 12-month canopy warranty.
We’re confident in our products, and we back our customers accordingly.
Aluminium joints bolt the extruded aluminium upper scissor frame and the 50mm hexagonal legs together on all Heavy-Duty Altegra gazebos and folding marquees. These are the parts that reinforce the strength of our zero-compromise marquees. We have never seen any of these break due to regular use. They are seriously tough!
The aluminium joints help retain the torsional stiffness of your folding marquee. Delivering a much safer portable shade structure when increasing the coverage span, like with our 4x4m and 4x8m folding marquees.
ABS joints are the lightweight solution to connecting the upper scissor frame on on our Pro Lite, Premium Steel, and Compact Canopy frames. ABS is a polymer that is renowned for its impact resistance and toughness at a low weight.
Keeping the overall weight of your gazebo low but its strength high ensures your Altegra remains packable and portable.
To cover all Australian’s needs, we’ve made sure we stock a full range of portable shade shelter sizes, from the small and lightweight 2.4m x 2.4m carpark-sized Gazebos to our 4m x 8m Heavy Duty folding Marquees.
