Marquees for sale are available in a range of sizes and a range of qualities. The better quality marquees use thicker steel framework (34mm upwards) and PVC covers rather than PE or poly/PVC. The weight of the PVC material used on the marquees (measured in gsm -grams per square metre) is an indication of the thickness but not the quality, the true strength of PVC comes from the inner core material before it is coated.
When looking to buy a marquee as well as looking at the materials used you should also look at the design and functionality of the marquee. With a good design additional bracing can make a marquee stronger eliminating the need for a thicker framework. Having interchangeable side panels can give much greater functionality so a marquee can be tailored for any site on which it is erected.
Throughout the world marquees are referred to as party tents but in the UK the term party tents usually refers to smaller marquees 3m, 4m or 6m wide made from steel tube. Party tent style marquees can usually offer a stronger but more economical alternative to traditional larger marquees – party tents for sale
