The marquees, commonly called “pole tents”, are erected through the placement of one or more center poles that serve to support the roof. The center posts are arranged vertically in the center of the marquees. It is precisely these posts that create the pretty gables of the marquee.
The tents are anchored by stakes or secured by concrete bells evenly distributed 4 feet from the edge of the marquee. The number of turnbuckles and anchors as well as the tensile force exerted will vary depending on the size of the marquee.
