Should You Choose a Frame Tent or a Pole Tent?
When you’re considering a tent rental, you need to ask which style of tent is best suited to your event. There are two basic options: frame tents and pole tents. In this post, we’ll help you understand the differences between them, so you can choose the perfect tent.
As their name suggests frame tents are held in place by frames. That differentiates them from pole tents, which require the placement of poles throughout the tent. As a result, frame tents give you more freedom when it comes to setting up the interior since you won’t have to work around the poles.
Frame tents are easy to set up and can, once they are erected, stay in place over a period of days or even weeks. That makes them ideal if you plan on using a tent for multiple events, such as a bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, and wedding.
Another benefit of frame tents is that you can attach multiple tents together to create a custom space for your event. If you want a covered walkway or an L-shaped space, you can use frame tents to make the perfect environment for your party.
Pole tents are what most people think of when they think of tents. They have the beautiful swooping effect that many party hosts want for their events.
Pole tents are generally less expensive than frame tents and they’re also very easy to set up. A nicely-shaped pole tent is elegant to look at and lends itself well to weddings. You can do a lot to control the way the inside of the tent looks with lighting, flowers, and other decorations.
The downside of using pole tents is that they’re not as sturdy as frame tents. While it’s possible in theory to use one tent for multiple events, a pole tent may require more ongoing maintenance to keep it looking nice.
Which tent should you choose? For multiple events and custom configurations, a pole tent is probably best suited to your needs. If you’re on a tight budget or want the classic “swoop” effect for your event, then a pole tent is your best choice. Contact Us to get started.
