Pros of shelter structures: Double-decker tent

Double Decker Tent 1

Improve space utilization

Double-decker tents can use double-layer space to accommodate more people in the same floor area, especially for occasions with limited space.

Provide a broad perspective.

The second floor of the double-layer tent can be used as a terrace, and the walls can be installed with glass walls. It can be used for large-scale activities, international sports events, and exhibitions, which is also why most customers choose double-layer tents.

Ensure the entire building is safe and solid.

Safety is the first factor that must be ensured in a double-decker tent. Our frame material is hard-pressed aluminum alloy with high-quality double-layer PVC fabric, and the connectors are strong hot-dip galvanized steel plates. These materials ensure that the double-decker tent provides a wind load capacity of up to 120 km/h and (DIN4102, B1, M2) level fire and UV protection.

Cons of shelter structures: double-decker tent

More installation time:

As a complex spliced structure tent, the double-decker tent will take a relatively long time to install and disassemble. To ensure its stability, steel cables are fixed to the walls of both floors, and additional steel cables will be added to the roof to ensure that it is not too big. Generally, tents are taller and more susceptible to harsh weather and the environment.

High cost:

The base, mezzanine, and roof of the double-layer tent will be reinforced to maintain stability. The mezzanine will be specially reinforced to prevent collapse. The base will be paved so that additional materials will be added. The roof will also be based on Different activity requirements and thus receive different levels of reinforcement. Depending on the type of event, additional customized accessories, such as partition walls, stands, air conditioners, carpets, sofas, etc., will also increase the purchase cost.

Semi-permanent buildings. Disassembly will take a long time and may cause damage to parts.

Yes, but it will be more troublesome because when we make partitions, we drill holes and fix them simultaneously. Suppose you need to adjust the position of the partition. In that case, removing the partition will be very time-consuming and laborious. If it is placed in the new position without drilpng holes, it is also necessary to drill holes and fix them where there are no holes.

Customization options include different roof designs (e.g., A-frame, vaulted, and cubic expansion roofs), interior finishes (e.g., air conditioners, carpets, sofas), functional area partitions (e.g., glass walls), and digital inkjet on PVC coverings Paint custom.
