When to use a frame tent?

Frame tents are often used for outdoor events and parties. Especially when you need a large, covered space that can accommodate a considerable number of guests. They are ideal for events such as weddings, graduations, corporate events, and festivals.

Frame tents are freestanding. This means they don't require any additional support structures, making them easy to set up on a variety of surfaces, including grass, concrete, and asphalt. Besides, they offer greater flexibility in layout and design than traditional pole tents, making them a popular choice for events that require a customized look. But, do not use them outdoors in inclement weather.

Weight. While its durability is an advantage, the frame tent is heavier.

Assembly. Although the frame is simple, large frame tents have a large number of poles and require more than one person to assemble them.

Space requirements. Frame tents, due to their frame construction, need a larger footprint to set up, which can be a disadvantage in small or crowded event spaces. 

How to set up a frame tent?

Step 1. Put together the steel posts with connector links to form the top frame. Add the pole sleeves to the pole joints as well.

Step 2. Connect the lower leg frames the same as in step 1.
