However, a good solid rain fall never stopped a DIY marquee from standing tall and true which is mostly down to the superior quality of the products and materials which are used when creating our extensive range of marquees.

Why settle for 500gsm Rip-stop Duracoretex PVC when we can offer a 650gsm Rip-stop Duracoretex PVC Roofs and side panels for marquees with a roof top less than 90sqm. An excellent example of what we have on offer is the Deluxe Demi range that is excellent value for money and quality, for those who want the strongest, most durable and most impressive marquees. This specific is designed for easy use when standing against buildings or toilets. Wind-stop Velcro seals the panels securely preventing the cold from penetrating into the marquee, especially at night or late afternoon events where the weather may have turned. The core of our DIY marquees is a frame of steel pipe work preferred because of the superior strength of this material when compared to other popular materials used for marquee framework. Ground bars anchor the marquee with cross-bracing eaves providing that additional security against any Winter weather.

DIY Marquee experts can also offer you advice on how to set up your marquees in order to buffer against the weather and increase the innate strength of the marquee. Obviously you need to consider your marquee heating options to guard against the Winter chill and DIY Marquee professionals are happy to advise you on the best way to heat your marquee as well as the worst (and most dangerous) ways which must be avoided at all costs, so to ensure that safety always comes first.

9m x 9m marquee for sale

9x9m traditional diy marquee

Considering purchasing a marquee as part of your business plan? Look no further for the most durable, quality marquees in the industry. DIY Marquees has the ideal, traditional 9m x 9m marquee for sale for those companies looking for your more traditional, high quality marquee.

What makes our marquees so high quality? Its all in the materials. DIY has years of experience with manufacturing and supplying marquees made from all varieties of materials and there is no doubt that while PVC materials are a little more expensive than PE or canvas, DIY Marquees knows that beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there is no reason to compromise quality for other inferior materials, which do not have half the life-span that PVC does. Meaning that you may invest a little more at the beginning, but your investment will last you twice as long, with less degeneration and repair costs down the line, and the marquee will stay strong for double the amount of time.

PCV, or Polyvinyl Chloride, is a high strength thermoplastic polymer which is used for a vast range of products, especially in the construction where strength and quality products cannot be sub-par.

What is Duracoretex PVC?

Likewise, DIY Marquees will not settle for sub-par materials, which is why we only use Duracoretex™ PVC for all of our PVC DIY Marquees. Duracoretex™ PVC comprises 5 layers of materials comprising of 2 layers of UV stabilising flame retardant laminated coating, 2 layers of plasticised PVC coating and 1 layer of highly durable, rip-stop polyester mesh.

Duracoretex PVC

Duracoretex™ PVC is tested to ensure that it meets the high quality standards which we require to ensure that we continue to satisfy the many new and returning professional marquee consumers who we have serviced with our marquees. Customers return because they themselves have already tried and tested our products and know that the quality is incomparable to other marquee suppliers. Laboratory tested for quality, performance and sustainability standards, by Intertek, leaders in testing of in-house testing for the optimisation of raw materials, DIY Marquees 9x9m Traditional marquees, made with Duracoretex™ PVC is guaranteed to have twice the life span of other, inferior materials.

The 9x9m Traditional DIY marquees, is the pinnacle of all 4-season marquees. You can expect your marquee to stand strong under almost any weather conditions, although we do recognise that sometimes nature is brutal and so at the first sign of tornadoes and other extreme weather-conditions, we recommend safety first! Other aspects which contribute to the strength of our marquees is that the high quality PVC allows for the use of high-frequency welding to seal the joins, which is superior to stitching which might lead to tearing of the material should the marquee come under strain. This also contributes to the weather-proofing of the marquees which is ideal for the wet UK climate.

Other strength enhancing features include physical eave braces and gable uprights which support the marquee when under additional hard-wearing conditions, ensuring that the DIY marquee and Duracoretex™ PVC are well supported during any event.

4x6m green commercial diy marquee

A special event, celebrated in a marquee always adds a certain kind of sparkle to that event… perhaps it’s because it’s a little out of the ordinary, or perhaps its because a marquee can be set up to perfectly suit the function that you need it to, while also looking absolutely stunning during day or night! No one thinks of a marquee and doesn’t think of how lovely it can be for any event. It’s fun and fresh as opposed to the same old pub or club venue that your family has been using for decades.

This simple system is perfect when you’re starting up a marquee hire business but after a while the jobs will become more intricate and so do the electrics. At this point you need to consider attending training courses from our friends at Essential Supplies who are running electrical courses aimed at the marquee hire industry:

Event Lighting Course:

Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working within the events industry. We shall cover methods and types of lighting and how to install your system. This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to help candidates with lighting. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.

Price: £180 + VAT per candidate

Marquee flooring packages are designed to be easy to lay whilst giving one of the best finishes available in a marquee using new carpet, available in red, green or honeybeige.

Included in each package is a non-breathable underlay, this is placed underneath the carpet when laying to prevent the build-up of condensation during your event (grass gives off a lot of water vapour if not covered). Grass is very tough so covering for a week or so will not generally cause any harm.

The marquee flooring is simply nailed in place -hammer, nails, cutting knife and a tool belt are included in the package. Watch our marquee flooring video to see how easy it is to lay.

This is the flooring and method of laying used by most of the marquee hire industry.

DIY MARQUEES HAVE THE BEST TO OFFER IN THE MARQUEE INDUSTRY

by on Nov.19, 2017, under DIY Marquee

Pop Up Marquee for sale Handy Tips

Furniture:

  • Unlike marquees, furniture is often too expensive to buy so hiring is usually the best solution
  • For a formal atmosphere use larger round tables (5ft for seating 8/9, 5ft6in for seating 10)
  • Use a mixture of smaller tables to create an informal atmosphere (see this article on seating)
  • You can get away with fitting more people in a marquee for a party than for a wedding, a wedding requires more space, but you can squeeze people up a bit at parties.
  • A marquee can hold more people standing than seated (generally around 1.5 times the number seated) but it’s always worth having some seats in rows against the sides of a marquee even if you are leaving the middle completely clear for standing (or using it as a dance floor area)
  • For formal seating remember an easel for table plans (or two for larger functions)
3x3m pop-up diy marquee 3x3m pop-up diy marquee

Dance Floors:

  • Do you want your party to be mainly about the dancing? In which case put the dance floor in the middle so it is very much the centre of attention. If you want it as an option, then put it at one end.
  • Like furniture dance floors can be prohibitively expensive to purchase hiring or making yourself (18mm plywood screwed to battens and stained) are the most common solutions
  • Alternatively, if your marquee is to cover part of a patio or decking area that can be used as a dance floor

Other:

  • Set the marquee up several days in advance and test the lighting and heating (if applicable) at the time of your function just to make sure both are sufficient.
  • People (mainly blokes) will always congregate around the bar. For this reason, always position it near the evening’s entertainment to avoid having two parties. Always aim to keep everyone in one place to maintain the atmosphere so avoid putting the bar in the house or a separate marquee
  • Always have lighting on a dimmer, this gives you the flexibility to supply lighting to eat by and mood lighting to dance by
  • In October to April you will need to heat the marquee  have the heating on for an hour before people arrive to ensure they walk into a wall of warmth
  • In May to September, you might need a heater just to take the chill off in the seating area later in the evening
  • Think of how your guests will arrive – a simple path of carpet with flower pots makes an attractive and inviting entrance to the marquee
  • Think of how your guests will leave – it’s likely to be dark so some form of lighting will be needed to guide people back to their cars
  • You would normally allow one toilet per 40-50 guests. If you don’t have enough available then consider hiring a luxury toilet unit
  • Give neighbours plenty of notice especially if you plan on partying until the early hours
  • Notify the police, it may sound extreme but it allows them to give informed responses (such as finishing time) to any complaint rather than come knocking on your door

DIY Marquees offer valuable advice on purchasing a marquee

DIY MARQUEE BUYERS GUIDE

When looking to buy a marquee the first thing to do is decide what size(s) of marquee you need, only then can you decide which range of marquee is most suitable for you.

There are several ways of calculating this:

  • Measure your garden. If space is limited your guest list may be restricted by the maximum size of marquee able to fit in the space.
  • If your garden is an awkward size then consider using more than one marquee connected together to cover the space. Multiple marquees can take a little more thought in planning a successful party but please contact us, we’re marquee specialists and are here to help.
  • If you need help in picturing the layout of a marquee then check out our interactive marquee planner on our website and experiment with different layouts.
