A Short Bit About me

I'm Spencer King, an ex-marquee erector. This blog is designed to help those running a hire business or thinking of starting. I don't claim to know everything, I'm just trying to help people avoid the mistakes I made! Check out our event planning section for advice on planning your own marquee event.

Positioning windows in a marquee

The good thing about a quality marquee with interchangeable side panels is your customer can decide where they want the windows when you erect the marquee.
The bad thing about a quality marquee with interchangeable side panels is your customer can decide where they want the windows when you erect the marquee!

Your customers views on where the windows should go might not be in line with where you believe they should go so a diplomatic discussion should take place, at the end of the day they should have the final say all you can do is make recommendations and give reasons why.

Generally windows should be pointing to the view and any side facing a barrier (ie a wall or a fence) should be covered with walls.

Often customers believe that windows should face the sun, this isn’t ideal as people can have it shining straight at them while eating but it’s not the end of the world.

Windows always look best when they are symmetrical so if a customer wants 4 windows on a side of a marquee that has 6 panels put the 4 windows in the middle with a wall either side. This is probably the most important point so worth emphasising, the outside of a marquee always looks best when the windows are symmetrical, it’s less important from the inside so don’t worry if a catering partition disrupts the symmetry from the inside.

Lastly, windows make a marquee more inviting no matter what view they have so always position some near the entrance.
