How do I know what type of tent to get?
Canopy Tents are lightweight and are designed to provide shade or protection from light rains. Perimeter staking is required and center poles every 10 feet are required. Our canopy tents allow solid and window side walls. If there is a chance for rain, having the option to install sidewalls is invaluable. Ideal use for canopy tents are backyard parties and family get togethers when there is less than 100 people. Canopy tents are generally grass setups.
Frame Tents are made of a reinforced vinyl or vinyl coated canvas stretched over an aluminum frame. Since they have a suspended center pole, the inside area is unobstructed. Minimal staking or weighting (if any) is required and they are perfect for installation in areas where staking is not practical, i.e. parking lots, patios, decks, driveways, etc.
Large Pole Tents are a heavy duty blackout white vinyl that are designed to provide cover or protection from inclement weather conditions. Perimeter staking is required every 10 feet and center pole placement is every 15-20 feet depending on tent size. Stakes are placed 6-10 feet out from the tent so that needs to be factored in when deciding tent location. Ideal use for large pole tents are weddings, corporate events, anniversary parties, as well as many other events. Large pole tents can hold between 100-1000 people. Large pole tents are generally grass setups but can be setup on asphalt as well.
Where should the tent be setup?
Select a level area and make sure that you are not placing it in a low area where water will flow or accumulate if it should rain. If staking is required, be careful of the unseen underground factors that may affect the tent placement, i.e. sprinkler systems (checking the sprinkler timers is not a bad idea either), gas and water lines, and telephone and electrical conduit or wires. In most municipalities the local utility companies will be happy to visit the site and mark the locations of their pipes,wires, etc. If electrical service is required to the tent for lighting, etc. try to locate the tent in an area where power can be easily accessed and run to the tent. Electrical generators are also available for areas where electrical power is not readily available.
What accessories are available?
Sidewalls - Solid and window sidewalls are available on most of our tents. Window sidewalls offer an upscale appearance and will not require additional lighting during the day.
Fans / Heaters / Air Coolers - Depending upon the expected ambient temperature, these options can greatly increase the level of comfort. Tent sidewalls are needed when either of these options are used.
Lighting - Lighting can be used to create a desired effect or mood. Lighting works best when solid side walls are used.
