Academy Rental Groups, Easy, 3 Step Process:
We are here with you all along the way during the planning process.
When planning to rent a tent, there are criteria to consider when preparing for your tent rental to identify the tent’s style that would work best for your event. To assist our staff in expediting your event quote and layout please review the 8 Tent Planning Questions below. If you do not have all the answers, we are here to help you work through these questions, so please don’t hesitate to call.
There are two main tent styles in the world of tents, a pole tent and a frame tent. With each style, there are high peak pole tents and high peak frame tents. The type of event you’re holding, the location of where the event is being held, and the number of attending guests will dictate the tent required. Which is the best option for your event? What is the difference between a pole tent vs. a frame tent? To learn more about the different tent styles, please click here or watch the video below.
There are typically two options for tent anchoring; staking and water barrels/ concrete ballast. Anchoring is an important criterion for identifying which style tent will work best based on the desired location. If a tent can be staked on all sides and is going into grass, a pole tent should work for your event. If your tent is located on a patio, driveway, parking lot, etc., and can only be partially staked or not staked at all, a frame tent would be required for your event. Frame tents have the most flexibility and can be utilized in the grass also.
This system is driving 42″ long stakes into the ground and can be done in the grass, mulch, gravel in areas like yards and driveway perimeters. The stakes are set and then driven into the ground utilizing a stake driver, jackhammer, or a sledgehammer. Occasionally staking is utilized in asphalt or blacktop, primarily at commercial locations. When installing stakes into asphalt, a drill is utilized to pre-drill where the stake will be located, and then the staked are driven into the ground with a stake driver, a jackhammer. *It’s company policy to call the underground utility protection services before installation, providing enough lead time is provided by the customer. Only public utility lines are marked via that service. Each location should notify us of any sprinkler systems or private water, gas, or electric lines in tent areas to avoid those driving in the 42″ long stakes.
As alternative anchoring, this anchoring system is utilized when stakes can not be driven into the ground. Water barrels are typically filled onsite and require access to water to fill the barrels. If no access is available, concrete ballast or pre-filled barrels can be used to anchor any of the tent areas where stakes can not be utilized. With this system, there are more obstructions around the tent than just a standard stake. However, nothing is driven into the ground, and underground utilities would not need to be marked.
Once the location and tent anchoring options have been identified, you can search for your event’s right style tent. We have divided up our tenting options below with a brief description of each style. Once we have identified your tent’s location and the estimated guest count, we can provide recommendations for the tent that will work best for you. If you have any questions along the way or need guidance, you can contact us via phone or fill out the form below to receive a tent rental quote.
Pole tents are typically installed in a flat, unobstructed grassy area or a gravel/asphalt parking lot, where staking is approved. Pole tents are raised with the interior center poles and are anchored into the ground using tension with a ratchet strap and 42″ stages. An additional 5′ – 7′ is required outside the tent’s perimeter for the stake line.
High Peak Pole Tents are our most elegant style tent. Primarily used for weddings, formal events, and galas. Our High Peak tents have taller center poles, which provide the “swoop” on the tent, providing an elegant look. The center poles for a high peak are 5′ – 7′ taller than the standard pole tent. This style of tent is installed with stakes and ratchets, just like a standard pole tent.
High peak frame tents are a hybrid style with a similar installation method to the traditional frame tent. A center mast is attached to a pair of cross cables, which gives the desirable high peak and classic swoops of a pole tent. This style tent can be anchored with ballast (water barrels) or staked into the ground
A clear top tent is most popular starting in September for those fall weddings. Unique in its style, a clear top brings in the night’s outdoor elements and provides shelter for your guests. Clear tent tops are placed over a standard west coast, so the installation requirements are the same.
