Sailcloth Tent Glowing in the Evening

Most tents are designed with a primary focus of shelter. They help block out the sun, keep rain out and can be heated or cooled. Then there is the Sailcloth Tent.

LET THERE BE LIGHT!

Traditional vinyl tent tops, which are made with white vinyl and have a blackout material in the middle of the fabric to "blockout" the sun and not allow light to pass inside or outside. Sailcloth tents on the other hand are made from a lighter (10 oz vs. 16oz) translucent sail cloth fabric. These tent tops do not have the blackout material in the middle of the fabric, which allows for some amazing light displays for your wedding or special event.

Cross Cable Tent: Aluminum or steel perimeter that uses steel cables to support a center pole. Also known as a frame and cable tent.

Frame Tent: Freestanding framework supports the tent fabric, therefore there are no center poles.

Expandable tent or shelter systems can be built to any desirable length. Fabric sections are joined together using methods such as grommet & lace lines or Keder track.

Frame Tent - A tent with an assembled framework made of aluminum or steel tubing that supports the fabric roof and defines the shape of the structure.

Sidewall - A removable sheet of fabric material designed to hang from the eave around the perimeter of the tent, used to block the interior of the tent from the outdoor elements. Sidewalls are available in various types and may not be interchangeable between tent classes.
