Party Tent Hire – More Than Just Crunching Numbers

If you are planning an outdoor event this year and are considering hiring a party tent or marquee, knowing what types of party tent are available to hire will help you to plan the indoor seating and entertainments for your event. It will also allow you to plan the decoration for your hire tent which is very much dependent upon the style and interior shape and space of the tent you hire.

Here you will find details of the main types of tent (marquees) that are available to hire.

Framed Marquees or Clear-span frames

Clear-span or area marquee frames are of aluminum construction and have no center supporting poles. The interior space is wall to wall which means that entertaining, seating and decorating are significantly simplified due to the open space. The aluminum frames with canvas walls are exceptionally strong and weather resistant and as such are the most suitable tent you can hire during winter months. Framed party tents can stand on any type of ground surface, whether it is soil, grass or concrete and do not need anchoring down. The frame is instead held down by weights.

When hiring a marquee it is important to consider where the hire tent will be sited. If you are limited for space and access and would like the party tent erected near to a building or adjoining a building an aluminum frame marquee is ideal. They are extremely versatile and can fit most spaces, on most surfaces and within many budgets.

Canopy Style 

The canopy style tent hire option is more suited to summer parties due to its lighter weight construction and open sides. The open sides of the party tent allow for summer breezes to drift through while the roof offers shade and a shelter from light rainfall.

This style of hire tent is not unlike a circus tent in that it is attached to the ground using guy ropes and pegs. It is for this reason that canopy style tents cannot be sited on hard concrete or sandy surfaces etc. The ideal base is firm grass which is why this type of marquee is a good tent hire option for garden parties.

High Peak Party Tents

This tent hire option has the best of both worlds from the framed marquee and the canopy/pole marquee. It has the durability and ease of construction as for the framed tent and the elegance of a canopy tent with its high peaked ceiling which gives an overall elegant and classy look which is perfect for any event.

If you have many outdoor events and parties you might be tempted to buy your own party tent rather than hiring one. This can be an expensive and time consuming option as you have to erect and dismantle the marquee yourself. The benefit of hiring a party tent is that these things and many more besides (from party planning to arranging caterer, seating and decoration) are arranged by your tent hire company.

Now, more and more people are using tents, it is very convenent  and cost saving, it is a very good choice for people to hold a event or party.
