A freeform tent can give you a stylish and dynamic outdoor entertaining area to accommodate small to large crowds. They can work either as a marquee or as a canopy to give you the coverage you require.
It is important to select a marquee or canopy style and fabric that fits all your needs. If you are considering hiring one there are several factors you should check with your supplier.
Ask if it is fire and flame resistant. The last thing you want is a marquee or canopy that is flammable. If the fabric has been tested to comply with fire regulations in New Zealand, and is designed to reduce any risk of burning in the event of a fire, you can have peace of mind for both your event and your guests.
It is also a good idea to check if the covering is compliant to council regulations. Having a company that checks and adheres to the regulations themselves means you don't need to sort it. It should have certification that the marquee tent is structurally sound (and not going to fall on your guests!)
You will want a service where the company handles the complete build, check, and dismantling process. Using experts to get your marquee or canopy up and ready takes a huge load off your shoulders and ensures it's constructed to comply with any regulations.
Going New Zealand made is always a bonus. A New Zealand made tent is designed specifically for our conditions, ensures you'll know it's created for our "four seasons in one day" climate. It's going to have to be UV resistant, waterproof, and of course safe.
If you are unsure of what size and dimensions you'll need, hiring should include a site visit and full consultation to ensure it is placed in the right spot for your event. This should be part of the free quote stage, so you can get an idea of the costs involved. A responsible hireage company should also offer round the clock availability for service so you can be assured that once you've decided on it, it is not an aspect of the event you need to focus about at all.
Using a marquee tent can certainly create the wow factor your event deserves, without increasing your stress or workload.
When it comes to providing outdoor cover for your business or private functions, there is a stunning new player in the marquee and canopy hire market. The marquee tent is centuries old but has been modernized to create a versatile and impressive alternative to the traditional marquee.
