Non damaging way of getting a fixing on a lining
There won’t be an entry next week as we’ll be down setting up our stand at The Showmans Show, yes I’ve mentioned it many times but this blog is aimed at marquee hire companies and it is simply the one show you must visit for the industry. Please stop by and say hello 🙂
I posted this last year but it has proved very popular and I keep referring people to it so here it is again:
Nearly every time you use a marquee lining it will be to go in your standard marquee stock and (if it’s one of ours!) will fit perfectly. Easy.
But sometimes you have to fit a lining somewhere unusual. It might be lining a customers porch, it might be lining an unusual walkway or just making good to a house. At some time in your marquee hiring life you will need to do this.
So how do you get attachments in a lining without damaging it? Follow these instructions:
- Step 1: Find a decent sized pebble (about 4cm diameter ideally) and place it on the good face of the lining (ie the side you don’t need to get a fixing)
- Step 2: Scrunch the material round the pebble at the back of the lining
- Step3: Tie a cable tie tightly around the scrunched material and also include an extra cable tie (this gives you your fixing).
And there you have it, a fixing in the middle of a lining that looks okay from the front (you can’t see the pebble) and gives you a fixing at the back without damaging the lining.
