Type of Marquees Marquee Marvel Hire

Type of Marquees  – Marquee Marvel Hire

Here are the details of the two types of marquees and what makes them so special. We have these marquees in stock ready to hire for all type of jobs no event is too big or too small.

Framed marquees

Framed Marquees are a modern style of marquee. Instead of centre poles and guy ropes, these tents are supported by an aluminium structure around the edge – illustrated in the photo above.
Clear Span Marquee: A clear span marquee means no central pole, therefore there is a clear space inside the marquee and an unobstructed view around the tent.
Marquee Erected on Any Surface:These include hard surfaces like sand, gravel, and concrete. This is because frame marquees can be secured to the ground with weights instead of pegs (though pegs are used as much as possible and are advisable in bad weather).
Flexible use of space: Marquees can be joined together to cover large areas, fit L-shaped gardens or allow for different areas within an event
Installation Anywhere: Well.. almost anywhere. Having no guy ropes results in frame marquees that can fit in small gardens, on roof terraces, on patios, in courtyards, on the street etc. Marquees make the maximum use of space.
Easily Divided Up Into Sections: Marquees can be easily divided into different sections to accommodate different client configurations. For Example for a wedding you can have one large marquee divided into two sections one section for the ceremony and the second section for the reception area. Also, we have divided marquees for agri-show events and sporting events i.e. changing rooms and first aid.
Safety: Our Marquee covers are made from flame-retardant PVC manufactured to the latest BSI standards. We [...]

Selecting the Perfect Venue

What to look out for when selecting the perfect venue.
If you or even anyone you know that has a garden, a field or any other easily accessible land chances are you can erect a marquee on it.
If you don’t, don’t worry there are numerous venues around  the Ireland that let out their grounds for marquees, these can be easily found by searching on Google and range from woodlands to castles to camping parks.
Have a chat with one of us on the team, here at Marquee Marvel we will more than likely be able to recommend something in and around your area.
The Site
The ground does not need to be the perfect lawn, or even be grass! Most marquee companies will flatten out pot holes and bumps and create a good flat surface. The important thing is that the site is relatively flat as flooring will follow the general slope of a site, although some leveling is possible.
If you have a specific site in mind that is very sloped, a suspended flooring system or scaffold set up can be used, but this tends to increase costs.

It is important to check that your chosen site is free from low overhead cables, power lines and underground pipes or power cables.
Penetrable ground is much simpler for securing the marquee like a lawn, but if the site is concrete or tarmac, other fixing systems can be provided.
It is also important that the
site itself has good access allowing vehicles as
close to the marquee location as possible.
Difficult access or a long carry of gear onto a site may result in increased costs. If in doubt, a site visit or a telephone discussion with one of the team here at Marquee Marvel will resolve any doubt – most [...]
