Features


This pole tent requires 52’ x 132’ space (footprint) for staking. The tent features a six piece seamless appearing top that is made of 16 oz. vinyl and laminated polyester to block out the sun. The installation is quick and easy, allowing you more time to setup your tables and chairs. We provide ‘double web ratchets’ at each corner of the tent to assure uniform tensioning. Solid and cathedral windowed walls are also available to add weather protection and style. Fluted aluminum side poles provide a high quality modern look compared to the traditional wood poles that are prone to scratches.

Installation

We drive stakes into the ground around the perimeter to keep the canvas open and to secure the tent. IMPORTANT: we DO NOT assume responsibility for underground utilities. Please identify all underground structures, cabling, and/or pipes at least two weeks before installation.It is your responsibility to be on site and let your installer know what area(s) to avoid.
