Often as event planners we are looking for two qualities for an event tent – quality and of course price. Often we will rent a traditional pole tent in a variety of sizes. The thing to consider with a pole tent is how much room do the poles take up? Will it affect the flow of the event or look of the event? Sometimes there are no issues, other times it is a disaster. Recently we witnessed an event that couldn’t rent the size tent they requested from another company, and didn’t understand what two 20×40 pole tents meant. It meant their tents were separated by 15 feet for the outside poles and ropes and the center poles went right into their dance floor. Talk about ruining the flow.
Now, if you want to create an event space with no interruption, complete flow, and no visual blockages you should consider a clearspan tent. Clearspan tents have no interior poles or obstructions and give you a lot more to work with in terms of flow, staging, lighting, seating, and the overall look.
But wait- there is more! Clearspan tents, while they might be more expensive at times than a traditional tent, the structure is more permanent allowing for better and safer long term use. They are the best option for air-conditioning and heating since the sides are tight and the enclosed structure will hold the temperature longer. These tents are even constructed to withstand winds of 70mph! (We still recommend leaving any fabric structure if the winds are more than 35mph.)
The tent frame of a clearspan allows for easy installation of AV/lighting trusses, lighting, drapery, décor, and we can even add panels to create rooms inside the space if you wanted to create a special VIP area, office, or secure area. Did we say secure? These tents can be used with actual metal doors that can be locked creating a great long-term solution for your multi-day tent needs.
We rent all kinds of tents – traditional pole tents, canopies, as well as Clearspan. Our staff would be happy to discuss options, looks, accessories for any tent needs your event, organization, or business might have.
