Rising supply of event tents boasts enhanced durability

Pagoda, high peak, gazebo and modular designs in one-storey structures lead supply. Makers use thicker aluminum frames to boost sturdiness.


  • Growing selection: China suppliers are producing models in different sizes for a variety of occasions such as exhibits, weddings and parties. The clear span starts at 3m for small tents, and can reach 50m in large versions. The frame is typically made of powder-coated steel or oxidized aluminum tubes. PE or PVC weighing 400 to 900g is employed for the cover, while the windows or sidewalls utilize transparent PVC, ABS or glass.
  • Improved durability: Companies are upgrading materials to comply with DIN4102 B1, M2. Small and medium tents will adopt aluminum frames with 4mm thickness, up from the previous 2.5mm. For larger variants measuring 30x40m, the tubes are at least 5mm thick. To improve strength further, makers utilize aluminum steel for the support poles. Doing so also makes the product withstand wind speeds of up to 100kph. The cover and sidewall fabric undergoes treatments to enhance resistance against mold, UV rays and flames.
  • Novelty constructions: The most popular releases include pagoda, high peak, gazebo and modular types in one-storey structures. Some models come in polygon and hexagon roofs and sidewalls that feature windows in similar shapes. Suppliers offer new designs with two floors, glass French windows or star-shaped covers. Hemlines can also be added as decoration. Inflatable dome tents without metal frames are on hand as well. These new versions are suitable for commercial and advertising purposes.
