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 adhere to all Irish and European Safety standards and have public liability insurance.

Pagoda/Chinese Hat Marquees

  • Oriental-Style Pointed High Roof Pagoda: Pagodas make a fun centre piece for a small to medium-sized party.
  • Pagoda marquees can also serve as an attractive entrance porch to a larger marquee for extra special events and double up as a smoking area.
  • They can also serve as a buffet and/or bar or as a chill out area away from the main marquee of an event – For example a quiet rest space with comfy chairs.
