How do I secure my Instant Canopy on hard surfaces?

Instant Canopy sandbags can be filled with dry/wet sand,blue metal or lead shot.

How do I clean my roof?

Stains from sap or other agents should be removed as soon as possible.

Cleaning PVC canopies, a little truck wash in a bucket of warm water applied with a mop and hosed down works best.

When cleaning your canopy, erect the marquee frame fully but do not extend the legs. This allows easy access to the canopy from a normal ground level stance.

Cleaning Polyester canopies, use a mild detergent, applied with a soft-haired broom instead.  Use a mild detergent on a sponge to scrub off stubborn stains. Hose off and allow to dry before storing folded.

How do I Service the frame?

Cleaning: Wipe the frame clean of dust and dirt with a damp cloth. Oil and greasy marks can be removed with a cloth or sponge soaked in warm soapy water. Glues and gums should be carefully removed with a mild solvent and wiped clean. Do NOT use solvents on any plastic parts.

Loose Screws: Regularly check your frame components and tighten any loose screws in the plastic joints and at the scissor bar mid-points. Use a phillips head screwdriver and an allen key.

Bent Bars: Sometimes, a scissor bar can bend or break. If you notice any 'frosting' at a bend in the bar, it is best safe practice to replace it.

Legs: Ensure that no adhesive tape is used on the upper leg and sliding inner leg of the frame. Residual adhesive can cause the leg to bind,  making it difficult to extend the marquee to its full height.

Buttons: If you notice that the restraining buttons are not clicking into place easily, a short spray with Silicon Spray will lubricate the action. If Silicon Spray is not available, rub the button with a piece of bath soap.


Can I put my Instant Canopy away wet?

No, mildew and mould will form. Air your Canopy as soon as possible and allow it to dry completely before packing away.

Can I repair the Instant Canopy myself if it is damaged?

Yes, with Phillips head screwdrivers and allen keys. Our Spare Parts List has every part of the Instant Canopy available for easy delivery immediate delivery to your door.

What is the canopy fabric made of?

We use both 500 Denier Polyester & PVC 300gsm. The polyester has been treated with a urethane coating which gives it flame retardant and waterproof qualities. Polyester is lighter than PVC yet PVC is easier to clean. Both fabrics are 98% ultra violet stabilised and are UV rated 50+.

Will the black canopy be too hot to sit under?

No. The temperature can be 12-15 degrees cooler under the Instant Canopy, no matter what colour your buy.

How do I attach the walls to the Instant Canopy?

The walls simply attach over and around the frame and legs with Velcro straps and can be secured to the ground with wall pegs.

How long, will my branded Instant Canopy take to be made?

Approximately 4 weeks from the date that you signed your artwork approval, plus delivery time. Most stock standard items are available for immediate delivery to your door.

What warranties do you offer?

Our canopy frames carry a two year workmanship warranty, and the fibre-plastic Dynidiom joints are guaranteed for 5 years. It is a condition of the warranty that canopies be fixed to the ground when in use.
