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.
