These days, tents are available in every shape, colour, design and size known to man. If you are planning an event such as a wedding, an outdoor lunch, a concert or even a trade stall, you’ll be looking at all the different canopy types that you could use. The options are endless, but one thing’s for sure – if you rent a clear-span tent it will amaze everybody around you. They surely are the very best in temporary shelter options, and there are many reasons why. We’ll list some of the features here to help you make your choices – is a clear-span tent right for you?
What Are They?
Clear-span tents are something completely different to make your event totally unique. They are available for both short term and long term hire, and they are made with an incredibly strong and robust aluminium frame, meaning they aren’t going anywhere! Because there are no centre poles propping them up, you have an unobstructed space within which to enjoy yourself. They are especially popular for weddings because the lack of poles means that there is a much larger, unobstructed space to eat, drink, socialise and dance in. So what makes them so special?
They Are Totally Durable
The last thing you want at your wedding or other special event is to worry about the marquee collapsing! A clear-span tent is a semi-permanent structure, and because it is made to such a high specification you can rest assured that nothing is going to budge. The fact that they are this resilient means that they can stand up to all sorts of weather conditions, from strong wind and rain to excessive heat.
They Create a Beautiful Atmosphere
Because clear-span tents have completely see-through ceilings and side walls, you will be able to enjoy the sunlight, and later on the starlight, without any obstruction at all. It’s like bringing the outdoors indoors! You can enjoy all the beauty that the area around you has to offer, without taking the risk of your event being ruined by bad weather. The lack of poles means that you can totally maximise on the space around you, and if you are planning a wedding this is especially important. If nothing else, the lack of poles means that your embarrassing uncle won’t have a pole to wrap himself around at the end of the night!
Clear-span tents will last a long time once they are installed, so if you are planning an event which is going to last a weekend, a week or even months, the structure will stay there, completely intact and ready for action. This takes away a lot of the stress of planning an event which is to last a long time.
Because clear-span tents require less staking they can be installed in no time at all. They are so versatile and lend themselves well to all sorts of different occasions. Some schools have even been known to use them as temporary classrooms – imagine how wonderful learning in a clear-walled schoolroom would be!
