Duracoretex PVC

Monday, January 25th, 2016

How do I know the quality of a PVC marquee cover? This problem arises as the only generic way of describing PVC is by weight – 380gsm, 500gsm, 650gsm.

The problem we have as a supplier is that there are many many different qualities of PVC within these weight bands. We could make our marquees cheaper by using a different quality (but same weight) PVC for example.

The problem you have as a hirer/user is how do you know what quality of PVC you are buying?

After many many years of supplying marquees using different versions of PVC we are now exclusively using Duracoretex PVC, this is because it has proved itself to be the most durable of all of the materials we have used across all weight categories.

Duracoretex PVC

The strength of the initial core material gives the fabric its strength with Duracoretex PVC often out performing heavier weight non-branded PVC.

So is all non-branded PVC unsuitable? Certainly not. But the quality of our marquees is how we have gained our excellent reputation and this is not something we wish to risk. Hence we use Duracoretex PVC.

Thanks for reading.

Selling used marquees

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Ben Dawson has written a really interesting blog post on Linkedin: Selling used equipment – marquees especially

For those who don’t know Ben he’s the man who set up curlew.co.uk which is simply the place to sell second hand marquees or associated equipment. He’s a very, very knowledgeable person on marquees and I can only agree with all the points he makes.

Yet more marquees for sale going cheaply on ebay

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

We have some clearance marquees going cheaply on ebay.

These are from a batch of marquees last year but are brand new, still in their packaging (though some of the boxes may be a bit scruffy due to being in the warehouse for several months).

Bidding starts at 99p with no reserve. We normally sell these for £600-£700. They are slightly taller than our standard ones (30degree roof rather than 20degree) and have 500gsm PVC roof and sides. It’s a lot of kit for the money at normal selling price so these should be a bargain for someone.

New range of Pagoda peaked roof marquees for sale

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

6x12m pagoda peaked roof marquee Considering we first exhibited them at The Showmans Show 2013 and a lot of work had gone in prior to that we are very excited at finally being able to offer our new pagoda style peaked roof marquees.

They are based on our extremely successful Commercial range of marquees but incorporate a double (or single for 4x4m and 6x8m) peak. There are no centre poles and the interchangeable panels and other features of our Commercial range remain.

Pagoda marquees have always been popular as entrance areas in to larger marquees but they are now increasingly popular as marquees in their own right due to their use in The Bake-Off and other high profile marquees.

For those with existing DIY Marquees you can purchase just the roof and adapter pieces to convert your existing Commercial marquee in to a peaked roof one. They will eventually be in our spares section but that won’t be completed for a while yet, Alex our IT man has a lot of work on his plate at the moment and is already looking a bit stressed!

The peaked roof marquees are available for sale in 4x4m (single peak), 4x8m (double peak), 6x8m (single peak) and 6x12m (double peak).

Thanks for reading.

The largest range of Marquees in the UK

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

As you may have noticed our website has changed, this is due to our expansion in to other ranges of marquees. We now have five ranges of marquees across 23 different sizes of marquee culminating in over 70 different marquees to choose from, we believe this means we have the largest range of marquees available in the UK and hope to have the marquee to suit any requirement. We also now stock a heavy duty range of pop-ups and pagodas.

Our two new cheaper ranges probably won’t be of interest to you as a hire company – the party tent range uses PE fabric (only suitable for occasional domestic use) and our new Classic range is made using 500gsm PVC but without the features we believe are essential to hire companies – I wouldn’t recommend hiring out a 6m marquee without eave braces for example.

Our new Professional range should prove popular in the hire industry, it is based on our Commercial framework but with a heavier duty 650gsm PVC roof.

As always our new products and ranges come from feedback from customers (thank you) and our own experience. This is why we are one of the leading designers and suppliers of marquees in Europe. Which we’re quite chuffed about to be honest.

We always like to hear feedback regarding our marquees or website so if you have anything to add or any new product ideas please always send them along.
