Frame Tents

Frame tents are spacious and have flexible layout options as they do not have any center poles or obstructions. This provides an airy open interior. The framework is made of aluminum or steel pipes that support the fabric roof. This special fabric does not require stakes to keep the proper tension, allowing flexibility in the placement of the tent. For example, frame tents are a great option if you want to install the tent as close to a building, home or structure as possible. Frame tents are popular due to their versatility and reliability. Frame tents can be weighted with cement ballasts to safely secure the tent if staking is not an option. Due to costs, tent weighting is a good option only if you absolutely can not stake the tent.

Some advantages of a frame tent include:

1) more visibility inside a frame tent due to no center poles

2) more flexibility with the layout and floor plan and

3) a better option for ceremonies.


Pole Tents

Pole tents have been a staple in the event tent industry for years, providing simple, elegant design and the ability to adapt to any event, according to Anchor Industries (a renowned tent manufacturer). If you are hosting a larger event, we recommend a Pole or Century tent. Pole tents and Century tents are tensioned tents that are supported by stakes that are every 10’ around the perimeter of the tent. 40’ wide pole tents have a single row of center poles based on the size every 20’ down the middle of the tent. 60’ wide century pole tents have a double row of center poles based on the size every 30’ down the middle of the tent. This creates high peaks which adds to the overall aesthetics of the tent. Pole tents are staked into grass or asphalt and cannot be weighted. Pole tents are easier to set up than frame tents making them a more economical choice comparatively.

Some advantages of pole tents include

1) a more economical option

2) aesthetically pleasing due to the high peaks and

3) available in larger sizes.
