What To Know About Party Tents

When it comes to parties and celebrations outdoors, party tents are a pretty crucial aspect of the whole arrangement. While fun and enjoyment may still be possible without a tent, it's always hard to predict the weather. For this reason, each tent is designed to help you out in any situation, whether that be a rainy day or extreme wind.
There are a wide range of shelters that you can take your pick from. Your choice should always depend on what kind of celebration you are having and what weather you are expecting. It's important to know your options well when planning an outdoors event.
One of the main questions with regards to your tent is how it is supported. A tent structure can vary wildly, and will help determine what it is you are looking for. This decision is harder than you may think and depends on a variety of factors that need to be taken into account.
A simple choice is a frame structure, and is usually selected due to the fact that shelters in this category tend to be the easiest to put up. Saying this, these structures most often support a small-sized tent. For this reason, hosts who wish to hold larger parties will look past this option.
If it is flexibility in size and space that you are looking for, then it is probably wise to go for the pole tent. Each pole tent can vary in size, accommodating your needs and requirements. The downside of party tents is the pole that will most often extend from top to bottom down the middle of the structure.
The large amount of variation in structure means that party tents are generally intended for specific uses. Each tent is specifically tailored to the host's needs, while carrying a list of pros and cons to take into account. Just make sure you know what you want and you get the appropriate research out of the way.

Key factors to consider about party tents:
  1. Make sure you measure the exact space you need the party tent for.  Many times people will over buy or under buy what they need.
  2. If you live in a windy area you will need mesh side walls.  Mesh shade side walls will let the air flow in without resistance and keep the tent steady.  Foot pads are also a must to secure the tent.
  3. Make sure you read the directions before setting up the tent.  So many people just try to assemble it together without reading the directions and then just have to take the party tent down and start over.  Tip: you build your roof on the ground first.
  4. Make sure you get a party tent that passes the CPAI-84 fire retardant requirements.  You do not want to have a fire hazard with all you guests at the party.
