Choosing a Tent

Frame Tents

A frame tent is a tent with an assembled framework made of aluminum or steel pipes that supports the fabric roof and defines the shape of the structure. The rigid framework allows the tent to be free-standing without additional support, but as a pole-supported tent requires an anchoring system to hold it in place as specified by applicable fire or building codes.

To maximize use of the interior tent space for which you are paying rent, Tent Masters, Inc. uses frame tents. Frame tents have a framework inside of the tent to give it strength and stability. From the side frame a tent top frame is formed to make the entire tent frame. There are no tent poles in the middle that take up space where your guests would be sitting, therefore you get to use the entire tent's square footage.

Frame tents are also low profile tents. They can be set up in back yards where there may be overhead electrical wire, telephone wire, cable wires or tree obstructions. They also need less room to stake down. A 20 x 20 frame tent can be staked down in a 22 x 22 foot area where the same pole tent needs a 32 x 32 foot area.

Frame tents are safer than pole tents. You don't have the tent straps going 12 feet from the tent to the stake for holding the tent down. They can be installed on grass, concrete, asphalt, decks in back yards, decks on top of garages, to cover pools, you name it we can install it.

We at A1 Tent Masters only install frame tents.
