Top 10 benefits of star tents for hire

  • Compact design
    • Easily toted by a two man installation outfit, most small star tents are simple enough to erect. Their dimensions as folded also allow them to be transported in a small vehicle or even car.
  • Small shade/shelter
    • They are often used as a small stand alone shelter, or sun shade for outdoor event guests or delegates whose attendance might run into the multiple hours.
  • Stand-out design concept
    • You simply can't miss a star marquee! Their striking appearance mimics their larger relative, the stretch tent. The many sided entrances make it a good all-rounder for high footfall events like conferences.
  • Printable
    • The PVC canopy material lends itself well to being printed with the latest print shop techniques. Custom branding exercises for the likes of product launches and commercial exhibitions are a staple use of such a structure.
  • Many sizes
    • Star marquees to hire are available in many sizes to suit need, budget and convenience. The dimensions are measured typically as floor to peak - height, inner point to opposite inner point and outer point to opposite outer point. Also,  the arch height is usually disclosed by manufacturers.
  • Waterproof
  • Fire rated
    • Reputable manufacturers of star tents will ensure the fabrics and materials of the product are suitably accredited as passing the relevant fire safety standards in countries of sale.
  • UV stabilised

Star tents produced by reputed makers are typically made using UV stabilised PVC materials which is resistant to such degradation, being made with technology which dissipates the UV radiation as low level heat.
  • 2 styles
    • There are two styles of star marquees which are readily available on the market for hire or sale: single peak and double peak, for greater capacity.
