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 with our Heavy-Duty 50mm, 3x3m gazebo over 15 years ago. It has stood the test of time whilst exposed to the rigours of extensive use by HRIA-listed rental companies and by our valued long-term customers.
We understand that building structural integrity into our heavy duty frames results in added weight. However, finding the right balance between integrity and weight is crucial for heavy duty shade structures to keep them portable. This is especially true for large-span marquees like our 4mx8m folding marquees. It is our Hexagonal, extruded aluminium leg design 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 help reduce . Our customers agree that this is an elegant heavy-duty portable shade solution.

The Altegra Premium Steel range is our affordable gazebo model that is awarded many of the high-end features of our premium aluminium range – without the price tag.
The Premium Steel range is the go-to for the gazebo user who would otherwise buy a generic brand but who is shopping for better quality. We build our Premium Steel gazebos for reliability when others fail – but to be rebuilt in the event of breakage. Our approach is so you make a wise investment with every Altegra product.
The Altegra Premium Steel gazebo frame sits on 29mm x 29mm square steel legs. The size of the leg ensures strength though retains an easily manageable weight. A robust steel upper frame extends to firmly fit the elite
Our affordable Premium Steel gazebo frames are also completely rebuildable from the ground up. Which means you get to keep your investment for longer – even if the worst happens. Altegra Premium Steel, money well spent.

The Altegra Compact Canopy is our innovation that earned us international recognition and acclaim. Our 2+ year R&D journey in pursuit of a more packable design without compromising strength results 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 92cm high, making for an extremely portable UPF50+ shade tent.
This is the result of our 2-year R&D journey in pursuit of a more packable design without compromising strength. Our 3x3m compact canopy frame design, available in both our Pro Lite Aluminium and Premium Steel

The Altegra Canopy is another component of all our gazebos and marquees that defines quality and provides a professional gazebo appearance to separate your shelter from the rest. We source premium quality polyester for all of our canopies, a material that feels good, looks great, and has stood the test of time in Australian conditions. Our canopies are all designed and manufactured to enhance longevity and your protection from the elements.
All Altegra canopies have been tested and awarded a UPF 50+, Excellent rating by ARPANSA, Australia’s authority on sun protection. The Cancer Council’s sun protection program use ARPANSA for their testing for accurate results making them the . UPF50+ “Excellent” is the highest rating offered for outdoor canopies and is awarded to all Altegra materials resulting from ARPANSA testing.

The best canopy material is one that provides extreme outdoor protection, is long-lasting to protect your investment, and provides a professional marquee appearance. The canopy must be pliable enough to be packable though durable enough to last. It should also not be prone to pinching or creasing, both so that it looks great and to avoid its early degradation. Its material must not be vulnerable to stretching or tearing, must be resistant to mildew, and also fire retardant.
We manufacture all in-stock Altegra canopies from high-quality 300GSM polyester fabric treated with a PVC lining to combat the long list of requirements. Polyester is a more tolerant and packable fabric than the heavy-weight canvas or PVC canopies, as it is a medium-weight fabric that is less prone to creasing. It will unpack from your included marquee wheeled bag easily and will be crease-free when set up. As an alternative, we do stock a heavy-weight PVC canopy, which has a higher sheen look, designed for longer-term setup.
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.
