Choosing the Right Solution According to the Tent Sizes

The Appropriate Tent Sizes

The choice of tent size should be based on the specific application scenario. Different events have varying space requirements, such as outdoor weddings, corporate events, exhibitions, or family gatherings. The right tent size not only ensures the comfort of all participants but also provides ample space for activities and the necessary facilities like stages, seating, and tables.

Small Events:

For family gatherings or small parties, a smaller tent, such as 10x10 meters or 10x15 meters, may suffice.

Significant Events:

For commercial events or large public gatherings, a giant tent, such as 20x30 meters or greater, may be necessary to accommodate more participants and equipment.

When choosing a tent, it is essential to consider the size and terrain of the venue to ensure that the tent can be safely erected and that there is enough space for participants and equipment.

How to Choose the Most Suitable Tent Size for You

The standard method for choosing the best tent size involves considering the average space required per participant. It is generally recommended that each person needs about 1.5 square meters of space. This calculation helps estimate the total tent area required, thus selecting a tent that meets the number of participants without being overly crowded.

For example, if you plan an event for 100 people, calculating 1.5 square meters per person, you would need 150 square meters of space. Therefore, you should choose a tent size of 15x10 meters or similar. Besides basic space calculations, additional space requirements for food service areas, entertainment facilities, etc., should also be considered, as these may require extra space.

How much for Different Tent Sizes

The cost of a tent typically correlates directly with its size and the materials used (profiles). Larger tents not only require more material but may also need thicker, more robust profiles to support the stability of the entire structure. For example, Shelter's M series peaked-roof tents offer different spans, from 10 meters to 30 meters, using profiles ranging from 88x166x3.5 mm to 120x250x4 mm. The larger the span of the tent, the larger the Profile required, which increases the price.

To accommodate different budgets and needs, we also offer a simplified series of tents that use lighter profiles to reduce costs. These tents are suitable for customers with limited budgets or where high stability is not required. When choosing a tent, customers can customize it according to their needs, ensuring that the purchased tent fits both budget and event requirements. Our customization service allows clients to select the appropriate profiles and tent sizes, ensuring the event's success.

How to install a complete conventional tent?

The following installation steps can be helpful to you

(1)Baseplate Placement

According to the specifications of the marquee, lay out the construction site and preliminarily place the baseplates based on their positioning dimensions;

We recommend not moving other materials to the center of the site until the dimensions of the baseplates have been confirmed, as materials on the ground can interfere with your use of measuring tools.

(2) Baseplate Positioning and Verification

Position the side wall/roof baseplates precisely according to the dimensions in the marquee baseplate positioning diagram. Use the principle of the Pythagorean theorem to verify the horizontal and vertical dimensions and angles by measuring the diagonals. Mark the baseplate positions or outlines after confirming they are correct. Use a laser or spirit level to verify the Z-axis height of each baseplate is consistent. If there are significant discrepancies, we recommend raising the lower baseplates and, after anchoring, treating the underside voids with a secondary grouting process.

(3) Frame Assembly

Ridge connector - roof beam - side legs - assembling baseplates - eave, ridge strut - cables. Connect the roof beams to the ridge connectors, assembling any extension roof beams with ridge connectors beforehand. Units with cables should have cable baseplates installed concurrently at designated holes during beam assembly and secured with bolts. Cover the joints between roof beams, extension segments, and ridge connectors during frame assembly with butyl tape to prevent rainwater from entering the tent. Ensure that the hooks on the beams and connectors are level with the ground; if not, adjust the direction of the connectors and beams.

(4) Connection of Roof Beams and Side Legs

Secure with four M20*170 bolts. Connect the side legs to the side wall baseplates by aligning the pinholes at the bottom of the side legs with those on the baseplates and inserting a cylindrical pin, followed by an R-clip into the pin's conical hole. Secure eave and ridge struts with M20*160 bolts; note that gable frame supports are not installed when the span is relatively short, typically not requiring eave or ridge supports.

(5) Eave, Roof Purlin, and Gable Hanging Tube Installation

Hang the bent hook end of the eave roof purlin on the hook of the roof beam first, then use a fork to lift the other end of the purlin, inserting the straight hook into the corresponding hook on the second frame set. If the tent roof is very high, assist with a cherry picker to install the high parts of the eave roof purlins.

(6) Roof Panel Installation and Tensioning

Spread the roof panels near each unit, open the packaging, and place the fabric on the carpet to prevent dirt. Throw the drawstring over the top of the marquee to the other side.

(7) Gable Triangle Installation and Tensioning

Install two gable triangles, inserting each from both ends of the roof beam. Place the gable fabric on both sides of the roof, open the fabric packaging, and place the fabric on the carpet to prevent dirt. Throw the drawstring over the top of the marquee to the other side.

(8)Side Wall Installation and Tensioning

Insert the sliders at the top of the side fabric through the notch in the eave purlin/right-left hanging tube to the groove at the bottom.
