Not all Tents are created the same… and they are not all an ‘one size fits all’ outdoor space creating, and gathering solution either. All the different outdoor tenting solutions we carry are different in structure, appeal, aesthetic tone, and size of course.
In this post we will examine the key differences between the pole and frame tents.
As the name suggests, pole tents are erected and secured by driving a stake into the ground. Thereby, concrete and asphalt are not ideal grounds for pole tents, and grassy and sandy areas are. Pole tents are well known for their high peak creating center pole or poles depending on the size of the tent. Some customers view this as a slight obstruction in the middle of the venue space, while others accessorize or decorate it to add to the event ambiance.
Pole tents can be used for a variety of functions and events from small gatherings to annual picnics, to sporting events to county fairs, to outdoor gatherings and markets, to graduations and intimate weddings.
Pole tents can be erected quickly and are hassle free. The set up and tear down are quick and easy and it can be erected even in uneven surfaces, which is not possible with some of the other tent options. Pole tents have their own appeal and aesthetic, and can be set up in many different sizes.
If what you are looking for is a larger, more open, unobstructed outdoor event space, then the frame tent maybe a better option for your next outdoor soirée. Frame tents are free standing structures that do not need staking into the ground, nor do they require the support of center poles. Guests love the open, unhindered view and event space frame tents provide. Although frame tents may look different from the pole tents with more hardware and equipment to assemble, these tents are fairly easy to set up and tear down also.
When considering the sheer flexibility of large extended sizes in the Frame tent modules, the inviting open space, and long-term rental options if needed, and the many different tent accessories that can be added for extra flair, tone, or aesthetics, frame tents are a good contender for your next outdoor black-tie bash, corporate gala, big wedding or any large-scale celebration or event!
