FAQ’s

ARE THE TENTS WEATHERPROOF?

Our stretch tents are 100% waterproof and are rated to winds to Beaufort 8 which is 60 kmph. MK fabric is finished with a waterproof stretch coating and further treated with a hydrophobic application. Furthermore we use an unrivalled dual process seam technology for extra seal and strength. We also have designed a clear sealed wall that can be put into the tent to take in the view during the cold months. The tents have an option for zipped doors and skirts to really seal it up!

WILL THE TENTS BE WARM ENOUGH?

The tents can be easily heated on cool days as their vented elevated ceilings and canvas exteriors are geared towards providing shade on a hot day rather than warmth on a cool one. We can also add in doors and skirts to seal the tent up more. You will be amazed how much heat the tent fabric holds, also each person in the tent will give off 1kw of heat.

WHAT SURFACE CAN THE TENTS BE ERECTED ON?

They can be erected a surface where we can get our pegs in and flooring nailed down. If we cannot get our pegs in to the surface or do not back permission to drill fixings in, ballast weights will have to be used. Most people do it on grass which is easier for everyone. The ground also must be level.

HOW MUCH SPACE IS NEEDED FOR GUIDE ROPES?

The guide ropes are a key element to these structures and 2.5m around the edge of the ‘footprint’ of the tent is required for the guide ropes to be correctly positioned. We can rig the tents to existing buildings, Concrete or block walls and trees also.

HOW LONG DO THE TENTS TAKE TO SET UP?

It really depends on the size of the wedding and location in Ireland but it can take a minimum of 1 day to set up, maximum 2 days. We would normally put it up a few days before the big day, depending on schedule, so you can do your final few bits to the setup.

WHEN WOULD YOU TAKE THEM DOWN?

The day after your event (usually a Saturday/Sunday).

DO YOU NEED A POWER SUPPLY?

Yes, we will always require power. Most lighting can run from a 13-amp domestic supply or a generator. Our cabling is weatherproof.
