We’re back to pavilions again today, and there is no doubt that the Phoenix Pavilion is aimed at the commercial market – we really can’t see these being used in most people’s front or back yards, or gardens.
The sizes alone are enough to confirm this, in case it wasn’t clear from the photos – there are only three sizes, with the smallest being a fairly sizeable 16 x 20 ft (which is the one shown here – it’s one of the open knee Phoenix Pavilions), the medium size being 20 x 36 ft, and the largest being a pretty massive 24 x 44 ft. (Photos of both these two sizes are displayed below.)
There are two styles of rectangular Phoenix Pavilions available – standard, and open knee – and they are all made of wood.
Each board is cut to fit exactly with the other boards, and then it is kiln dried and furnished in whatever lengths are specified.
Heavy duty galvanised brackets are included with all surface mount columns or arches. These are designed to meet load requirements and are appropriately sized to accept the columns.
This is all part of ensuring that your pavilion is constructed to meet local building codes.
So, you may be wondering what the difference is between standard and open knee pavilions?
Well, if you take a look at these two photos, all will become clear:
|20′ x 36′ Laminated Wood Phoenix Pavilion Shown, Tables Not Included||24′ x 44′ Laminated Wood Open-Knee Phoenix Pavilion Shown w/Metal Roof, Tables Not Included|
The “knees” refer to the curved supports that connect the uprights to the roof.
In the standard pavilion, on the left, these curved pieces are solid, whereas in the open knee pavilion, on the right (and perhaps more clearly shown at the top of this page), there is a gap between the curved piece and the support/roof.
The only real difference between the two styles comes down to which you prefer – the open knee version seems, to us, to give the structure a lighter, more open look to it.
Now, given that most people won’t be erecting one of these Phoenix Pavilions in their garden, where might you want to build one?
Well, public parks, again, are an obvious choice, as places to sit down in the shade and/or have a picnic, or perhaps at a school.
They could house bicycle racks, vending machines, games (e.g. table tennis, foosball / table football), maybe even a small dais to act as a stage for semi-open air theatrical productions.
And here’s something else to consider – if you want to contribute to your community, then why not donate one to them, either singly or, if you’re willing to do a bit of fund-raising, as a collective effort?
It would make a lasting gift that would positively affect the lives of many people in your area – wouldn’t that be better than sticking a few cents in the collecting tin several times a year, and never knowing where your money goes?
Anyway, the Phoenix Pavilion is a great solution to those who need what it offers.
