If you need some shade, but you’re a little strapped for time and energy then the fully inflatable Zempire Aerobase 4 will make adding some shelter to your site a little simpler.
Whether you’re setting up to relax at the campsite, for a backyard soiree, or barbeque in the park – the Aerobase 4 has a heavy duty SPF50+ UV canopy for shelter from the harsh summer climate. It has also is fully seam sealed to protect against leaks, and has a waterhead rating of 2000mm. Pitching this shelter is easy thanks to its fully inflatable frame, so all you have to do is attach the included pump, put some air in and you’ll be on your way.
There is a pressure gauge included, and a pressure release valve which makes it easy to inflate the poles without going too far. The vertical side walls optimise the sheltered space, and the large umbrella vents in this shelter will help prevent condensation build up.
If you like the sound of a lot of undercover shelters, that won’t take forever to set up then the Zempire Aerobase 4 is a solid choice.
There is a wall available for the Aerobase 4 Jo, but it's a new product that hasn't reached our warehouse yet.
I'll know pricing once we receive the products, so I'd recommend keeping an eye out on our website, we'll put the products online as soon as we receive them. You can check the price of the Aerobase 3 shelter wall for a rough estimate.
Not at the moment sorry Jo, we have used it in the past and may do again in the future.
We experienced some glitches that affected the level of service we offered our customers. We'll implement something once we can overcome these issues, but I don't have a date for you unfortunately.
There's no floor in the Aerobase Jo, you can get a groundsheet to add in, however.
The lines around the edge and through the centre that you can see in the image are straps that hold the frame in place, you'll need to leave these in place to keep the shelter together. The colour you can see is actually just a reflection which existed in the images we sourced from the supplier, they must photograph their products on a shiny surface.
There's not much more to the set-up than what you can see in the Zempire video Jo, and yes, the fabric is 100% waterproof.
We will add this to our list of product videos to create but it could be a few weeks until we get to it sorry, we have numerous other request waiting on the sidelines. All you need to do prior to what you see in the video is pull the shelter out of the bag, and peg out the corners. After that, you just need to peg out the guy ropes.
There air pole products are super easy to set-up, and it is for this reason that they are becoming increasingly popular.
I've seen a video of this being pumped up. I would like to understand how it works from removing it from its pack through to the fully erected shelter. From what I have seen on video I cannot see what is involved in the steps before the pump is used. For example are there poles to be put together and threaded through the shelter?
There are no poles to thread or set up other than pulling it out of the bag and pegging the corners out Joanne. The poles and canopy are an all-in-one design, that's the beauty of air tents and shelters. Once the poles are inflated, you just need to peg out the guy ropes and you're good to go.
see question above
The best thing you can do for stability in the wind is to use all peg points and guy ropes. This being said, this shelter and any similar products are basically like big parachutes, and there is only so much wind that they will be able to reasonably withstand. The benefit of the air poles, however, is that the poles flex rather than bend, the latter of which can render a steel frame useless.
In terms of punctures, you can replace the bladders, but to date, apart from some very early iterations of air filled poles in products from a different brand, we have not heard of any failures with these poles. Should your shelter get a puncture then yes, it would be somewhat useless until a replacement was sought (the bladders can be replaced), but the same could be said in many cases with the failure of a steel or aluminium frame, and a damaged steel or alloy frame can often lead to fabric damage also.
I hope this gives you some confidence in the product.
