For any event that may be organised out in the open, an effective way to tackle the twin key points of space coverage and aesthetics is by the use of a canopy tent. Whether it is a child’s birthday party in your backyard, a flea market set up, an exhibition, a trade show or even a car shelter – a canopy tent could well be your answer. A wide range of options for a potential buyer, in designs, shades, and size can land you with just the canopy to best suit your requirements and tastes. As such you have portable canopies, car canopies, shade canopies, patio canopies and many more.
Canopy tents should be easy to set up and sturdy enough so that it does not easily give away to the wind. For this purpose, special weights, ropes or foot-pads may be used. Always keep in mind the weather conditions, as canopy tents cannot usually hold out against heavy rainstorms. Also, if you happen to live in a region with very cold weather but are still looking to have an outdoor setting for your event, you would need a canopy tent with a higher ceiling so as to accommodate the use of heat lamps.
The general size for a canopy tent is usually 10×10, although options of 5×5, 8×8, 10×15, 10×20 or more are also available in the market. If you have very rigid specifications for your canopy, you can always opt for a custom canopy. Custom-built canopy tents do not in any way restrict your options in design, colors or frills. Canopy tops mostly use polyethylene as cover material.
A common problem that is often faced by owners of canopy tents is that while frame has lasted, the cover wears out. In this case, you needn’t necessarily buy a new tent. You could simply use a replacement cover that is a much more economical route to take. If you do not have frequent use of a canopy tent, but need it occasionally, you could rent a canopy. For this, you could approach a party supply vendor. Most event organizing firms offer tent rental services as well.
Canopy tents are a useful option for a wide range of events and renting them is quite affordable.
