This commercial quality general purpose shelter is popular for events and large gatherings where an extra large, high quality, waterproof shelter is required. This design uses little to no guy ropes, with a self supporting steel frame structure providing a solid peak roof shelter. It will withstand harsh weather conditions and strong winds. The side walls are attached and there are 4 x canvas and mesh doors down both sides that can be rolled up as needed. Ideal for scouts, mining companies, military, disaster relief, 4WD clubs, music festivals, emergency services, bush fire brigades, remote accommodation, glamping sites, weddings and any other outdoor events where large undercover space is required.
Made using a heavy duty commercial grade safari canvas that has been thoroughly treated and tested to withstand the elements. This canvas can be made in a green colour or a beige colour. The neutral beige colour canvas is our most popular and the colour we generally have available.
We are able to make this shelter in a variety of sizes to suit different needs. The 8.4m long shelter has four frame spans. It can be made smaller with 2 or 3 frame spans.
The side walls have doors built in to them to allow maximum natural light and air flow, whilst keeping the insects out. The 8.4m version has 4 side doors down each side. These side doors are 1.4 mtrs wide each, have zippers on both sides, a canvas cover as well as a shadecloth mesh door.
There is no floor in this tent, however an optional double layer ripstop mesh groundsheet can be provided on request. Use this tent for a large variety of uses such as a dining tent, a meeting tent, a kitchen area, lounge space, for events and parties, for music and bands, or for wedding guests.
The substantial frame is galvanized 32mm diameter steel tubing with a powder coated finish. This frame is commercial grade and super strong for semi permanent set ups. The frame is set up first and the canvas roof hangs over the top of the frame. An awesome piece of kit for remote shelter built with quality and durability as key elements.
