Why 2m end panels are more wind-resistant
The end panels on a marquee can be susceptible to strong winds.
Using one large single panel transfers all of the force generated by any strong wind is taken on the eyelets around the edge. A single large end panel also has more slack with which to billow in and out.
From experience this can mean the end panels of a marquee letting you down earlier than expected.
Using several panels to cover the end of the marquee distributes these wind forces around making individual end panels more durable and wind-resistant. The smaller panels will also billow in and out far less than a single large panel.
Note: Smaller end panels are used throughout our commercial, professional and deluxe ranges.
