Marquees in the snow

Apparently there’s been a bit of snow recently. As someone who lives in Reigate it sounds like we had our fair share.

So what does this mean for marquees?

1. Obvious but make sure no snow is allowed to build up on ANY marquee roof. Marquees are not designed for snow loading, if they were they’d be designed with much steeper roofs and look like Austrian ski chalets. Scrape it off and/or put heaters on to melt it/stop it settling.

2. Gutters are going to be problematic in the snow, snow will build up in any gulley so gutters can overflow if you’re not careful. Scrape as much snow away and keep it warm.

3. If you’re putting a marquee up in the snow scrape as much of it away as possible before erecting the marquee but don’t put a heater on until you’ve got the flooring laid otherwise lawns turn in to mudbaths.

4. Remember your winter clothing including gloves – I can remember to this day forgetting my gloves and putting up a marquee with the metalwork sticking to my fingers!

Thanks for reading.

Spencer.
