Marquee pinning.

When we site a marquee, even if it has a suspended wooden floor, we drive home 1m long metal ground stakes. One in each foot. The recommended loading should be 600kg of upward pull to move the leg once the stake is in place. So if we site a 12m x 24m tent the total loading should be 24 ( legs !) lots of  600Kg = 14,400 Kgs.  If you want to see what can happen if one takes off simply look on YouTube where you will see several examples. Bare in mind that a 12m wide marquee itself will weigh probably 2 tons when it is fully sheeted and lined. It can cause serious damage if it becomes detached.

If you are concerned about the danger of your marquee taking off then you can always consider buying Event Insurance. This typically costs about £100 for the average banquet bash for 100 guests and will include other cover that may be important to you such as cancellation, damage waiver, personal injury etc..

❝ As one of the largest Wedding Fayre Organisers on the South Coast, we require various size and shape marquee structures to accommodate some of our wedding events, at prestigious wedding venues. These can be anything from 40ft up to 120ft with specification being important, as well as contributing factors such as solid flooring and electrical supply points throughout. We've worked with All Season's Marquees now for some years as they are very knowledgeable, reliable, confident and personable. Our relationship is now at a point that we barely have to discuss matters in detail, as they know precisely what's required and construct the marquee(s) with great attention to detail, care and consideration to the surroundings they are within. Some locations are a challenge as not all land is level, but they have the expertise to tackle such issues. Personally, we wouldn't look elsewhere for our Marquees as all elements, including price, are more than satisfactory. We look forward t   ❞
