We all know that you’ve got to be cruel be kind in the right measure, but Mother Nature may not always agree. Make sure you give yourself a nice sheltered space from the sun and wind to relax under, with the Zempire Aerobase Shelter.
This shelter inflates in mere minutes, and will pack away just as quick – just lay it out, put the pump in, add some air, thread the poles through and you’re done! Everyone knows that Australian outdoor conditions can get so hot that you can actually fry an egg on the ground, so a shelter like this with SPF50+ protection will give you another layer protection from the harsh summer climate.
The packed Aerobase is almost half the size of your average steel shelter, and you can collapse the shelter by the inflation valve instead of removing the canopy. So whether you’re off to a watch a sporting event, hosting a backyard BBQ or setting up camp – the Aerobase will give you some shade for you to relax under, and wind protection if the weather goes awry.
We have yet to use this shelter in the wind yet - which is our main reason for getting this model, but so far, this present as very sturdy.
after erecting, we pushed on the sides to get a feel for how much pressure it would be able to withstand - seems like would be a lot, but true test will be nature and will have to wait for that test to see how it goes.
Shelter much smaller than our previous - but prefer the smaller size to a flimsy shelter.
Love that the wall is both solid and flyscreen unlike most other shelters where you have different walls for each purpose and have to move them around depending on what you want in each spot at different times of the day.
When fully inflated, what is the internal height of the dome
I've just checked with the info given to us by Zempire, and the peak height of the Aerobase shelter is 2.3m.
I know the Coleman Event 14 has a bigger footprint - but do you know the height/width of the doorways and maximum height of each gazebo? Thanks. :)
The doorways on the Event 14 are as wide as the width of the sides which are 4.26m, and the height is 1.8m. As for the Zempire Aerobase – we’ve checked with the supplier, and they’ve said that the doorways are 1.7m high, and 2.7m wide.
Is there a way to anchor the corners on the beach to deal with typical WA wind on the beach?
We've just had a look at what you get with the Aerobase, and this particular shelter does come with four smaller (approx 20cm) sand pegs, plus 16 regular pegs so you will be able to anchor each corner down on the sand with the included sand pegs.
If you are going to be on very soft ground, you could always get some extra sand pegs in a bigger size like the 300mm Plastic Sand Tent Pegs from Poles Apart, or some even sturdier ones like these Aluminium Sand/Snow pegs in the 310mm size for the guy ropes.
This shelter is made to withstand a bit of wind, but just keep in mind that they are not designed for extreme weather conditions.
can't see it on the website
We have the Aero Pump in stock, but for some reason we just hadn't got around to activating it - so thanks for bringing it to our attention Joe. We've made it live now, so you can check it out here if you're interested.
I am hoping to purchase aerodome 2 or 3 and use aerodome out front as my shade seated area but want it to either go right over the entry or at least flush in line. Thanks
This is a bit of a tricky one Ryan, we actually don't have them both set up - but I've had a chat with Zempire, and they've told me that even though the peak height of the Aerobase is 2.3m, the top of the doorway is 1.8m - so it's going to be lower than the Aerodome II.
This means that they're not going to line up perfectly, nor will you be able to have the Aerobase sit slightly over the entrance of the tent because the doorway will obstruct it. I hope this made sense, let us know if you have any further queries about the range.
How does this shelter handle wind and rain?
Weather protection on the Aerobase is in line with any other gazebo or sun shelter David. with proper set-up it will handle your average wet and windy day, and the fabrics are waterproof enough to keep out heavy rain, but strong winds could quickly see your shelter turn into a parachute, you'd be best taking the shelter down if there are any severe weather warnings out.
Just wondering if it is possible to buy wall segments to completely enclose the shelter? Are there attachment points on all 4 sides?
I've just checked this for you, and you should be able to attach walls to each side of the Aerobase Shelter. This shelter comes with one wall included so that's something to keep in mind if you were wanting to purchase more side walls.
We do have the side walls available online which you have a look at here if you're interested.
