How many fixings to attach the reception tent?
Setting up a reception tent is essential for your safety and the safety of guests. It is therefore quite normal to wonder how much fixing is required to attach a receiving structure. You will find all the information below, in case of doubt do not hesitate to contact us.
Is it necessary to provide a fixing in the ground for a reception tent?
It is absolutely essential to ensure that your floor allows a correct fixing of your reception marquees. For this the ground should not be too loose if you choose to put sardines. If your ground is hard (macadam) do not panic there are also ballast specially dimensioned to properly moor your reception tent on the ground.
How to calculate the number "sardines" to fix the reception tent against the wind?
It depends on the pullout test performed at the time of installation. In practice, we provide one to two anchors per post minimum. Depending on the nature of the terrain, hosting a C.T.S (Marquee, Tent or Structure), our installation teams, Les Hommes de l'Ombre), can increase up to 6 anchor points per pole.
How big are the anchor holes in your marquees?
We use twisted anchor spikes 24mm in diameter with a depth ranging from 500 to 1500mm.
Fixing tent "sardines" causes damage?
If your soil is earthy, the tearing of our bindings will not cause any irreversible damage. Be careful if you have pipes in the ground, water, gas, electricity. It should be reported during
of the location visit (sometimes we have to initiate a procedure called the DICT).
How to fix a reception tent on the tar?
First of all, fixing in tar and concrete is possible. This avoids replacing this anchor with concrete blocks requiring and or more additional transport. So we let's act together in an eco-responsible approach. To fill in the anchor holes linked to the fixing of the tent receipt for rental or purchase, we use either a resin, tar, or mortar.
How much fixing to use for your nomad tents, shade sail, bamboo tent for hire?
For a stretched canvas like the shade sail, the Nomad tent and
stretch as well as the Bamboo marquee, only one anchor per pole is not enough if it is not located in the tar. Depending on the weather (rain, thunderstorm) the ground gets wet with water, loosens up and changes the test values at pullout. For this, our teams have studied these constraints and propose for the fixing of our nomad tents and bamboo marquee for rent, metal plates. These accommodate from 1 to 4 spikes 25mm diameter twisted anchor with a depth of 500 to 1200mm. Your safety is important as well as that of our professional editing (Men of the Shadow).
Is it possible not to fix the structure and the tent in the ground?
Yes, we will replace the anchor in the ground with ballast (concrete block). This applies to all our products, namely the Nomade tent, the Crystal reception tent, the traditional structure, the Bamboo tent…
Our concrete blocks for hire are placed on all the poles of the reception tent.
For a Nomad tent, this requires more and more ballast because it does not have a frame. It cannot be installed without fixing in the ground or taking over the load by concrete blocks. The tension gives it its rigidity like a circus tent.
Can we set up a reception tent without making a hole in the ground?
The traditional structure, which has a metal frame, can stand on its own without anchoring. It also needs to be fixed either in the ground or with ballast.
However, it is possible to fix in tar and reseal this anchor with a resin in the color of the mix and the imprint of the hole will have completely disappeared.
