Thatch Gazebo Kits
You do not need to be a joiner or carpenter to assemble one of our gazebo kits. All our gazebo kits can be assembled by someone with basic diy knowledge. Each component is pre-assembled and precision cut or routed to ensure a snug fit. It is literally a matter of slotting together the different components. Building a thatched gazebo just does not get any easier. Most gazebo kits can be fully assembled in a matter of hours using only a cordless screwdriver and a hammer. The African Thatch Company have gazebo kits available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and styles, prices and can be supplied with or without a timber base and floor.
Timber Base & Flooring
Building a timber base and flooring from scratch requires advanced carpentry skills. There are many angle and compound angle cuts required. For this reason we supply the timber base and flooring completely pre build. The timber base and flooring is supplied in two or three sections (depending on the gazebo size). These sections simply bolt together to form the floor section for your thatched gazebo. The gazebo kit timber base and flooring should be positioned on a flat level surface. Ideally the surface should be either a gravel, hardcore, stone, concrete, tarmac, patio or timber decking area.
Timber Poles & Balustrading
The timber poles are supplied pre cut to the correct height and are designed to slot into each corner of the timber base and flooring through a pre cut circular hole. Each timber pole is also professionally machine routed to accept the integrated timber headrails and balustrade sections. Each timber headrail and balustrade section is pre assembled in our factory and designed to slot into each individual pole. Specifically engineered heavy duty zinc galvanised pole to roof frame brackets are also supplied to enable secure fixing of the roof frame to the top of the timber poles.
Roof Frame & Thatch Roof
Each gazebo kit is supplied comes complete with a lightweight zinc galvanised tubular steel roof frame. The lightweight tubular roof frame is virtually invisible from underneath and the thatch tiles are clearly visible from inside. The roof frame is then completely covered with a combination of different genuine African cape reed thatch tiles which create a distinctive stepped appearance. The thatch tiles are very durable, have a long life span, and offer natural aesthetic beauty. To enhance the timber and to ensure maximum weather protection all timber components are additionally double soaked treated in a brown wood treatment preservative.
Each gazebo kit is supplied with all the necessary fixing, fastening and detailed user instructions to help you build a quality gazebo that will last for years. We have a variety of options and accessories that allow you to create a gazebo for your particular needs. We are only a phone call away if at any time in the assembly process you require any technical assistance. All timbers and poles used in the construction of our gazebo kits are made from premium quality redwood timbers. The timber and poles are pressure treated with Tanalith `E` wood preservative to protect against rot and insect attack.
