Strong marquee framework
We often get asked exactly how strong is the framework on our marquees? We don’t often get asked what we get up to when we’re bored, but the answer to both is shown below:
That’s the middle section of one bay of a DIY Marquee
We’re getting rid of some old stock where the boxes have been damaged or the roofs have been repaired, they’re listed on Curlews second hand marquees website. If you’re not already on their mailing list sign up now! It’s the place to go for second hand kit.
I’ve mentioned before that if you’re connecting a marquee up to a house it’s a LOT easier if you can orientate the marquee so you have the flat gable end up against the doors opening inwards. This avoids the need for guttering and there aren’t any eaves rails along the gable to obstruct the door.
I was reminded of a possible problem with this while speaking to a marquee hirer last week (apologies, I forget who -I have a terrible memory).
People often fit floodlights above back doors. People often forget they have a marquee outside when turning on said floodlights (or don’t notice it’s been switched on). This is not good.
Whilst any good quality marquee will be flame retardant it doesn’t stop the floodlight melting a scorched hole in your gable meaning an expensive repair or replacement (and a nasty smelling marquee).
Check for floodlights, put a sticker on the light switch inside the house so the customer remembers.
Thanks for reading.
