Clean, Quality Rental Equipment



The summer has come to a close, the traditional wedding season is fizzling out and the dog days of winter are upon us.  What does the crew at PPC do in the winter?  Well we are very busy in the spring, summer and early fall with tent installs and rental deliveries, but the pace of production doesn’t let up come late fall and winter.  During our “Off Season” we are nearly as busy cleaning, inspecting, maintaining and repairing any and all equipment in our inventory.  We service, count and purchase new equipment to fulfill needs we’ve established over the past rental season.  Maintenance of our equipment is crucial to meeting our clients’ expectations that we provide clean, quality party rental equipment at a competitive rate.

Tent Sidewalls

A tent is a canopy, but a canopy isn’t a tent!  People use the terms interchangeably, but in the industry we consider a canopy a cover that provides shelter, but to make it a tent you need to add sidewalls!  Canopies work fine most of the time, and are preferred, but what about when the weather comes up? Wind, rain, sun and cold can be a hindrance to any event. Grizzly (7)

Sidewall options are available for you to create a controlled, comfortable space for your festivities.  They come in various heights, lengths and styles.  Your sidewalls should be matched to your tents height and fit properly.  Sidewalls can be added to any or all walls as you see fit, but don’t forget your access.  Your tent installer can secure the bottom of your sidewalls with stakes or a cable system to keep the sidewall in place.  Unsecure sidewalls can be hazardous and will fly around in windy conditions. 40x90F-Riverside Health-3

The most cost effective sidewalls are “Solid” white and are used to enclose, inexpensively, or hide some thing unsightly from view.  You can retain a view with “Clear” sidewalls but still have a wind buffer while maintaining an outdoor feel.  “French window‘ sidewalls typically have a simulated segmented window panes with square or arched window shapes.  They offer a “peekaboo view” inside a tent which can draw interest and has a more elegant look. 40x100-Korthuis-3

Sidewall styles can be mixed and matched as needed for your tent, event and site.  Your event rental professional should have options for you to consider.

Memorial Day remembrance

Memorial Day weekend reminds us that this is the time we remember those who serve and who have served.  The staff here at Pacific Party Canopies asks that you please take the time to thank the military veterans in your life and remember those that have made the ultimate commitment this Memorial Day.  Without their sacrifices we might not have the freedoms we take for granted today.  Never forget, ever honor…thank you.

Tent lighting options continued…

When clients inquire about lighting we like to offer examples of what others have done with our lighting.  Above you can see an event that used “Halo Lights” which are set up in our designer series Epic pole tents.  These lights are installed on the center poles of pole style tents.  As you can see this lighting option provides a soft reflected light that can be installed with Rheostat (dimmer) switches which helps to create mood.  The above event was a Gala but these lights work great for weddings, too.  As the evening moves along, the music comes up and the lighting goes down a great combination for any special event.
