Tent Renters Supply - Tent Installation Guidelines

After more than three decades in the tent manufacturing industry, Tent Renters Supply has learned first and foremost that every event site is different, every weather and variable condition is different, and therefore tent installers must make interpretations of guidelines and recommendations from other agencies to suit their unique needs.

While many of our clients are members of the American Rental Association, which provides a plethora of resources from marketing to operations to logistics and beyond, the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) is less well known. In this article, we will be that determine which are recommended for specific applications.

Guidebooks and Resources

Written by Barb Ernster’s Tent Rental Division, the guidebook for tent experts covers the gambit of issues and factors that go into tent installation such as permitting, terms and processes for permitting, applicable codes for the type of event, including the distance required between tents, as well as guidelines for tent installers to use for site-specific tent installation.
