Tent Installation Guide

Each tent has its own unique set-up instructions. With proper installation, use, and maintenance, your tent will provide you with many years of service. Wet the frame of your new tent before using it. When wetting canvas wall tents, especially the seams for shrinkage, make sure you have wall stakes and side ropes so that the tent merely shrinks the normal one to three percent and that it shrinks evenly.

Site preparation is key to setting up a good  container canopy   tent. Select a relatively level ground for the location of your tent. The unit should be put on a grass or a moderately soft surface. Be careful when pitching the tent under trees, as these can shed hard fruit such as apples, walnuts, or even pine cones.

Furthermore, remove rocks and sticks in the set-up area. These can cause abrasions and blunt injuries to those occupying the tent. Doing so will also make your tent cleaner during set up and take down. Look around if there is enough clearance for easy entrance and exit. As for party tents, they should not be installed close to buildings or any other obstructions that may prevent guests from exiting in an emergency situation.

Next, you will want to spread out the fabric of the tent you obtained from a and assemble your pole sections. The floor corners of the tent should be staked before set up. Familiarize yourself with the component parts. Most guides provide itemized parts for easy identification. Some parts are also similar, varying in only size, so be sure to use the parts correctly.

The tents one acquires from a tent rental service are very similar. You will lay the tent out on the ground and put the poles in position. Slide the poles in the sleeves and the tent will take its shape when the poles stop and cannot slide out anymore. You can then use stake on the corners. To keep the doors closed, it may be necessary to cross over the stake points at the base of the zippers.

Finally, make sure that the tent you obtained from a tent rental service is certified. Non-certified tents are not engineered to meet specific wind speeds. Wind speeds are approximate and calculations used in the industry are based on actual field experience. A non-certified tent will only be able to handle wind loads of about 30 to 50 mph, depending on the style and type of tent.
