How to stay ahead of the marquee game

As we embrace the slow change in season and slide into the downhill stretch towards the Christmas season, most vendors are shutting up shop for the year. Those who are still busy from the month of October through to the end of the year are doing well! However if you are slowing down, it just means that things will change somewhat in terms of what people are looking for as well as how the marquees need to be dealt with when erecting. If you understand the landscape and embrace the change, continuing through to the festive season will not cause any issues for your business.

No matter where or what time of year you use your marquee, these two aspects are what you will need to consider first and foremost. All the DIY marquees are cost-effective without compromising strength and durability to face all types of weather, protecting your investment and your patrons.  The initial outlay for a marquee may appear to be considerable at face value yet the sheer number of choices that you have, ensures that you will certainly find the ideal value for money that you are looking for. Popular marquees can be found on the DIY marquee website. Take for example the traditional 9m by 18m 4 season marquee. Features include 500gsm Duracoretex PVC roof and sides which is wind protective and flame retardant. Made with 38mm & 50mm Steel pipes, this marquee is a steal from just £1800.00.

Commercial Demi marquees for sale are also frequent sellers. A 3m by 6m Demi Commercial marquees for sale is suitable for all seasons with the same 500gsm Duracoretex PVC roof and sides and is similarly flame retardant. With roof and eave braces, purlins and a ground bar and 38mm steel framework, this ideal marquee is selling from just £550. Consider purchasing a green commercial 4x6m marquee with the same specs as the commercial demi, for just £708.

Some tips that can assist you with your marquees as you head into the colder months can help like factoring the effect of the weather on your marquee. allowing for more time to put your marquee up as a result of higher winds and wetter days. It’s a good idea to place your marquees butted up against a permanent structure or well tied to any other permanent or stable structure. Use a walkway with sides if the winds really pick up, and ensure that they are secured fast so that they don’t flap into the passageway. Being colder with fewer daylight hours means you have may struggle more with the erection of your marquee in that you have less time and less dexterity in your hands, especially when you start needing gloves for the outdoors. Another thing to remember is to allow for more maintenance of your marquee. Cold weather, snow, and rain will mean that the marquee is damp or wet at the time when you take it down. You will need to ensure that the marquee is properly dried before you pack it away which can sometimes prove easier said than done, in on-going wet weather. Making sure that the marquee is dry before you pack away will ensure the longevity of all of the materials.

In the event of snow on the horizon, take a look at all of the options for heating that we recommend on the DIY website. A little hint on the heating would be to leave the heating on very low so as to prevent it building up on the roof. In heavy snow, you may want to consider placing wooden floors down, for 2 reasons: They will give your patrons a solid surface but 2. You are raising the height of the floor! This is a good albeit expensive solution especially when you are raising on soft ground which is prone to waterlogging or even on a hard surface where water may be likely to come back up and under the sides.
