Eave Braces

All of our 6m wide marquees now include eave braces. These are metal braces that connect the number 2 pole at the eaves with the number 2 pole halfway up the roof. Shown in red on an overhead diagram of a 6x16m marquee here:

This extra bracing makes the structure stronger and more resistant to strong winds and water pooling without adding considerably to the weight. Keeping in mind the weather currently outside I should mention that although these braces add to the structure’s strength no marquee in the UK is designed for snow loading so always make sure you don’t allow snow to settle on a marquee roof.

Thanks for reading
