Event Stretch Tent FAQs

What you need to know

What is the difference between a Modular Tent and a Next Generation Tent?2023-12-07T05:09:54+00:00

Modular Tents: Modular tents are designed with lug or tie points typically spaced at 50-centimeter intervals. These facilitate the connection of multiple tents using our guttering system.


New Generation Tents: In contrast, New Generation Tents feature main tie points positioned 5 meters apart, and feature an internal catenary boundary rope. This design not only ensures exceptional strength but also but creates a beautiful, clean curved look and feel. The result is a structure that combines robustness with enhanced visual appeal.

What is the space allowance for each guest?2023-11-15T12:03:55+00:00

As a general guideline, for seated events, you might allocate around 1.5 to 2 square meters per person. For standing or more informal events, you could allow for less space, around 1 square meter per person. Keep in mind that these are general estimates and the actual capacity may vary.

What is the lifespan of the tent cover?2023-12-06T08:12:42+00:00

The cover tent typically lasts between 5 to 7 years, contingent upon environmental exposure, geographical location, and adherence to recommended installation procedures. A UV protective shade cover can be added to increase the longevity of the tents if required.

What maximum wind speed can the stretch tent endure?2023-11-21T09:12:14+00:00

Can I join tents together?2023-11-11T12:47:21+00:00

One of the unique features of stretch tents is that they can be joined to create larger spaces simply by joining each tent lug together. This means you can essentially cover multiple-size events with the same tent stock. However, if you want to create a seamless join that is 100% waterproof, you will need to order our tent joining guttering system separately. We have spent many years perfecting a system that allows for easy joining and efficient drainage to ensure your tents will not leak. You can learn more about our tent joining and guttering system here. If you plan on joining tents, we recommend ordering all your tents in a specific modular dimension to ensure they fit together perfectly.

Can I close the tent up in bad weather?2023-12-06T19:49:45+00:00

Our sidewall solutions provide the flexibility to create a closed tent solution when needed, ensuring comfort and protection in adverse weather conditions. Learn more about sidewalls here

Can you add my company branding/print on the tents?2023-10-02T15:59:18+01:00

Yes, we provide customization options that include adding your company branding or full-colour graphic prints to the stretch tents. This is a great way to promote your business and enhance the visual appeal of the tents. Contact us for more information.
