In this edition of our Materials Content Series, we’ll be exploring tent applications, and the considerations that you should take when designing, producing, and manufacturing a custom vinyl tent.
For our inTENTs and purposes (pun fully intended), the type of tent, design, and materials used should always start by asking these questions:
- What will the tent be used for?
- Where will the tent be installed?
- What environmental factors should be considered?
- How long will it be there?
At Tent Renters Supply, we have accumulated over 40 years of experience in serving the tenting needs of various industries across the country. Our expertise and industry knowledge enable us to provide custom vinyl tents tailored to specific applications and requirements.
In the upcoming sections of this article, we will delve deeper into the critical aspects of tent design, material selection, production processes, and the diverse range of applications where our tents excel. Stay tuned as we explore the world of tent applications and equip you with the knowledge to make informed decisions for your custom tent needs.
What Kind of Tent Do I Need?
That’s an excellent question, and we have our best answer: it depends completely on the use case.
Understanding the specific requirements based on the application is essential to ensure the success of your tent project. Let’s examine how different types of structures align with varying needs, from meeting building codes to creating the desired aesthetic.
180 Days or More? Go for a Structure Tent
When it comes to long-term applications, structures tend to be a popular choice. Structures are often favored due to their ability to meet building codes, particularly in municipalities where there are regulations regarding the duration of temporary structures.
In many areas, if a structure is intended to be in place for more than 180 days or has three or more permanent units, it no longer falls under the temporary structure classification. Structures provide the necessary compliance with building codes, making them a suitable option for long-term applications.
Considerations for Aesthetics and Durability
The advantages of structure tents extend beyond compliance. They offer the stability and durability required for extended periods, making them suitable for projects like clubhouse renovations at golf courses.
These projects often exceed the 180-day timeframe, requiring a structure that can meet building code requirements while providing an aesthetic that aligns with the ambiance of a country club environment.
Tent Considerations for Short-Term Applications
On the other hand, for shorter-term or temporary applications with specific budget constraints, frame tents offer simplicity and versatility.
They are well-suited for events or situations where a quick setup is required and where meeting building code requirements may not be a primary concern. Frame tents provide a cost-effective solution without compromising functionality, making them an ideal choice for intermediate budgets and one-time events.
Understanding the distinction between structures and frame tents is crucial in selecting the right tent for your specific application. Structures cater to long-term projects where compliance with building codes is necessary, while frame tents excel in temporary and budget-conscious scenarios where quick setup and versatility are key factors.
The Importance of Application-Based Design for Tent Selection
Choosing the right tent always involves considering the specific requirements of your application.
Whether you need a structure for a long-term project or a frame tent for an event, understanding the benefits and considerations of each option is crucial.
