Quick Reference and Helpful Hints

A tent can be defined as a temporary structure composed of a covering made of pliable material or fabric, that is supported by mechanical means such as poles, metal frames, beams, columns, arches, ropes and/or cables.

A canopy is an architectural fabric projection that provides weather protection, identity, and/or decoration.  The term also refers to a small tent, a tent without sidewalls and a walkway marquee.

A Tent Liner is a fabric that is installed inside of a tent structure. We also carry leg skirts and center pole covers. we have several models and styles to choose from.

Frame tents require minimum staking and have no center poles creating more space.  Traditional push/pole tents with center poles require more extensive staking.

Give us a call @ 800.564.4505 to schedule a no obligation site survey.  A mandatory requirement by NTPS Events is the first of many important steps in the total organization of any safe tent rental function or event. The major purposes of the site survey are to gather all pertinent information regarding the proposed event,   The site survey should be completed by a qualified professional such as a sales consultant or job foreman and passed onto those responsible for the installation.

The importance of safety as related to the site survey cannot be over-emphasized.  Considerations should be given to obstacles such as obstructions, location, weather, wind exposure, access, exit and anchoring stability.  All tent installers must be aware of and adhere to applicable building codes and fire regulations.  Information is available in The IFAI Procedural Handbook for the Safe Installation and Maintenance of Tents.

If your home has a clearance height of 8-10 ft, or more, the tent can go directly next to your home or attach to your roof. A little filler might be used to insure that guests stay dry as they walk out from the house and into the tent.

The decision to buy or rent a tent has many variables.  If the tent shall be used for 4 to 6 times each year, it is probably better and more economical to rent the tent.  Our expert installers are provided with the necessary training and expertise to safely install and remove the tent.   Our company also has the tools, washing facilities, and storage areas to maintain the tent when it is not in use.  We have had long-standing relationships with the fire marshals, code enforcement officials, and other regulatory officials, which can make renting the preferred choice. Renting will also allow you to vary the size of tent according to your specific needs.   Of course if you will be using the tent frequently or for long periods of time, it may be wise to purchase the tent.
