The majority of our new marquee hire enquirers have a picture in their minds of how they want their temporary venue to look.
It may be a balanced - even symmetrical - vision for their fluctuating guest list OR it may be a casual - more higgledy-piggledy - configuration.
There are a few practical factors, however, that have to be considered.
- Where is the marquee to be sited? If space is limited a coverspan or frame marquee will offer the best useable area
- What surface is the tent to be positioned on? Grass lends itself to both styles of marquee. A solid concrete base poses the question of securing the marquee. The traditional marquee has guy ropes approximately every 3m which would have to be attached to concrete blocks for example whereas a coverspan can be held down with either a solid floor or water weights.
- Exposure to the elements - Hilltop locations, cliff tops, beaches, airfields all offer stunning opportunities to show off a marquee in all its glory but wind is the marquee's number one enemy and all these positions on the landscape are very exposed. Check a marquees' wind capacity before committing to the style.
