Clear Span Tent | American Pavilion

So, you have decided to have a summer wedding. Here is all you need to get started on piecing it together to make sure your special day is just that – special. From finding the perfect venue in a clear span tent to sending out the save-the-date invitations, read below to learn how to plan the perfect outdoor wedding.

Save-the-dates

Having a wedding during the summer means having to plan with and around the schedules of many. Since kids are out of school in the summer, most families plan vacations during that time. If you want to have a summer wedding and you want to make sure you have guests attend, you will want to make sure you send out save-the-date invitations to your guests.

Save-the-dates can be sent out six to eight months prior to the scheduled wedding date. This will provide ample time for your future guests to arrange their schedule so they will be able to see you tie the knot.

Don’t overlook this step in your preparation. You want a wedding – and you want guests to celebrate your day with you!

Use a clear span tent for the perfect outdoor venue

Okay, so you don’t have to have an outdoor wedding in the summer, but why wouldn’t you want to? Nature and the outdoors brings such a welcoming place for a celebration. Most people try to fill indoor venues with flowers – but, you can have your wedding outside amongst the flowers! Besides, having an outdoor wedding gives you ample amount of choices for location. You can rent a clear span tent and have it erected in a large backyard, an open field, a park, the beach – you name it!

Clear span tent rentals come in all shapes and sizes. You can customize your wedding tent to meet your exact needs, depending on the size of your wedding and the events you plan to partake in on your special day. For example, you are going to want to likely have seating, a food serving/prep area, dance floor and DJ location, etc.

Food for thought – best ideas for outdoor weddings

There is something about eating a heavy meal on a hot day and then feeling miserable – heavy food and outdoor heat do not mix. If you are holding your wedding outdoors during summertime, it is best to go for a light meal that will not weigh your guests down and spoil any potential fun. Here are a few ideas to consider when planning your menu:

  • Offer a mixture of light salads on a salad bar, such as crisp tossed salad, chicken salad, fruit salad, etc.
  • Go barbecue style. Have ribs, chicken, burgers, etc. on the grill, along with all the fixins’ – potato salad, coleslaw, or chips.
  • How about a cool down station? A sundae bar, popsicle stand, or a shaved ice cart.
  • Like seafood? How about serving crab, sushi, shrimp cocktail, or a crawfish boil?
  • How about serving finger foods or appetizers to keep it a light menu?

Food isn’t the only thing you want to keep light. Have you considered the beverages you will serve? Outdoor, summer weddings require staying hydrated. However, there are many light and refreshing beverages and cocktails that your guests will appreciate. Use this list to get you started:

  • Have a drink station of pre-made beverages – Fill dispensers with a ton of ice and then fill them up with things like lemonade, iced tea, sangria, fruit spritzers. To add a decorative flair, add fresh fruit to the dispensers, too.
  • Fruit-infused waters add a lovely touch to wedding receptions, as well. Water is necessary on a hot day, but the fruit spruces it up a bit.

Decide what it is you and your guests will enjoy and then make it happen. Keep it cool, light, easy, and tasty.

Make your guests comfortableClear Span Tent | American Pavilion

Just because you chose to have a wedding outside, in the middle of summer, does not mean that your guests should suffer. It’s going to be hot. Depending on where you live, it could also be humid. While your friends and family may be fans of you, they may not be fans of the heat and the sun. So, treat them and make them comfortable on your special day.

Providing fans is one of the most important things you can do for your guests. Although, clear span tent rentals can be climate controlled, when you have a lot of people in an outdoor space in the summer, it may get a little sticky. Providing area fans throughout your celebration, as well as decorative hand-held fans can add a bit of relief. If you are feeling up to the spending, purchasing personal fans for your guests will likely be much appreciated.

Sunglasses and flip flops are other things that will help guests be more relaxed. Perhaps they spent their time dressing for a wedding, rather than remembering things such as sunglasses to protect their eyes or the fact that heels and grass don’t mix. These items are cheap to purchase in bulk and can make a big, welcoming impact.

All in all, make sure your guests are protected from the elements and are staying hydrated and cool throughout the festivities.

Don’t overlook the little things

You cannot please everyone, but you sure can try. There are lots of little things that you don’t want to overlook when planning your outdoor wedding. Make sure you take into consideration the venue and the pesky things that may lead to irritable guests.

For example, bugs. Your clear span tent can have side walls that will help keep a lot of the pests away. However, with so many guests coming in and out, the bugs are likely to find their way in. That doesn’t mean they must feel welcome when they get in. Make sure you use repellent and spray the area prior to the party. Then, provide your guests with repellant wipes to stay bug-free throughout the day!

Something else you will not want to overlook is hot guests. You want them to dance and let loose, but you don’t want them passing out from heat exhaustion. Therefore, providing your guests with ice rags to put on their necks can cool them down and keep them dancing!

Put yourself in your guests’ shoes and decide what would make you most comfortable – then provide that for your guests.

Outdoor weddings can be fun and beautiful. Plan to make it memorable – and enjoyable – for all involved.

 

Here’s How You Can Plan an Unforgettable Corporate Event

Clear Span Tent | American Pavilion

So, you are ready to take the plunge and host the latest corporate event in your industry. You have invited many people and want to make a bold statement – as this is your make or break moment.  You want to do something different and engage your guests, rather than just have the same old boring conference with a monotone speaker and a yawning audience. There must be a way to avoid this, right? Yes! There sure is.

From renting a clear span tent to selecting the perfect theme, use the ideas below to liven up your next corporate event and raise the bar for other industry leaders in the future. Be prepared to have a blast at the hottest corporate event yet!

Use Props with a theme!

Props are awesome. They offer event-goers a chance to let loose and maybe even giggle a little bit, depending on the props and theme you choose. Here are few of the most popular:

  • Night at the movies. Complete this idea with a movie screen and projector, popcorn machine, props to include the Hollywood sign, and the walk of fame.
  • Set up a photo booth. You can use props to match your theme, say — the roaring 1920’s, casino night, 1980’s flashback, animal kingdom, etc.
  • Ice sculptures
  • Road trip. Use car prop, street signs, state backdrops, photos on postcards, etc.
  • Stress relief. Offer massages and spa services to your attendees. After all, it may be a work event, but it is also a mini vacation from the office.
  • A DIY section. Think of something that may come in handy for the folks in your industry (or just simply a fun idea) and have an area in which your guests can learn how to make their own. For example, lotions, a zen garden, stress balls, step by step painting class, etc.
  • Inflatables! These are not just for kids anymore! Instead of bounce houses, adults get inflatable money booths, bull riding, snowboard or surfboard riding, etc. Fun stuff!
  • 50’s diner themed. Complete with poodle skirts, jukeboxes, records, and checkered flooring.

The point is to make the atmosphere fun and entertaining. Sure, your guests are there to work – technically. But, sometimes it is okay to let loose when the boss isn’t looking!

Backgrounds – and photo spot

Have you ever watched celebrities walk into an award show or a benefit on the red carpet? How about turning your guests into celebrities? Have a red carpet (or any color, for that matter) and then take their picture in front of a backdrop as they arrive. You can use a backdrop that matches your theme or you can have a backdrop custom made with your company or events name and/or information on it. (The latter can turn into a great advertising tool thanks to social media).

Use the photos you take during the event and turn them into something comical or memorable. For instance, you can put the faces on bobble heads, create canvas photos, caricatures, pins and badges, etc. It is even possible to set up an Instagram station (or any social media, for that matter). As the pics are posted (with a specific hashtag) you can have video screens throughout the venue showing a continuous collage of these photos. You may also have an area when people my purchase or download copies that were professionally taken at the event.

Rent a clear span tentClear Span Tent | American Pavilion

Gone are the days of boring old hotel conference centers or convention centers. People these days look for adventure or, at the very least, something intriguing or unique. Take time to carefully select where you would like to hold your event.

A suggestion that allows you a lot of room for customization to get the exact space you want is renting a clear span tent. It is easy to do – all you need to worry about is finding a space large enough to hold the clear span tent, the attendees, and, possibly, parking. You determine the size, the layout, the location, and any other specific details and the ball starts rolling. Easy as pie! Clear span tent rentals even have all the offerings of a permanent building – flooring, walls, climate control, etc. – except it is where you want it and designed how you want it.

Performers

Who says you need one famous headliner or performer to make your event a success? That is just not the case at all. In fact, if you can keep your attendees entertained throughout the event, you are so much farther ahead.

Here is what we are talking about here:

Let’s say you have a casino-themed event. While you will have various casino games, etc., why not hire Vegas dancers to mingle among the crowd, as well as have short shows sporadically throughout the day?  Or, if you are having a circus theme, why not hire fire-eaters, jugglers, clowns, and acrobats to make their way through the crowd? If it is a tropical or island theme, you could hire belly dancers. Get the idea?

There are so many options – and even more people looking to entertain. You just have to find them!

Hire a DJ and an MC

No one can quite get a party going quite like a DJ can. People love music – especially music that makes them feel good. Hiring a DJ for your corporate event can liven the moods of your attendees and keep a joyful feeling in the air.

MC’s can be entertaining, as well. They keep order in an event. When you have a lot of guests in a large space with a lot going on, sometimes it can be hard to maintain order and reduce any confusion. An MC can be that center point of contact for attendees and help with the flow of the day.

If you use your imagination, you should be able to come up with all sorts of ideas to liven up your next corporate event. Just keep in mind that the idea is help keep the mood of your attendees elated, the feel of the event confident, and the outcome successful. Best of luck!

 

How to Tailgate in Style at Sporting Events

Clear Span Tent | American Pavilion

If you are going to a football game, you are likely going to make sure you are there early enough to tailgate. After all, tailgating can be an awesome experience, filled with games, drinks, friends, and lots of food! There are several ways to prepare for a tailgate, from choosing the right food to serve to renting a clear span tent.

Want to know how to be the most hip and stylish tailgater in the parking lot? Keep reading to find out.

Grub

It’s all about presentation, presentation, presentation. You can make anything look sophisticated and delectable if you present it right. Scrap the paper plates and Styrofoam containers and splurge for real table wear. Well, wooden or metal, that is (stay away from glass). For instance, using a silver metal platter to display the hotdogs, burgers or whatever you choose to make can take the display factor up about 10 notches. So, no need to stray from your normal food course if you aren’t ready to or if it would mess with your superstitions!

If you do decide you want to make your munchies a bit more grown up, try ideas like making beer brats and gouda stuffed turkey burgers. Or, take your tailgating menu to a whole new level by picking a theme and creating a menu. For example, have tacos, guacamole, black bean dip, etc. Or a shrimp boil with crab cakes and fish dip. Even get fancy and set up a fondue feast. Your choices are endless!

Drink up!

Red solo cup? Not for a stylin’ tailgater! Who says you need to use plastic glasses or even drink out of cans or bottles? There is nothing written in the playbook that requires this. In fact, you are free to drink whatever your heart desires. Make it classy. Party and restaurant stores sell plastic barware, including margarita, highball, and martini glasses that lift you a step above those other plastic cup drinkers.

Instead of drinking beer, pick a drink of the day. Make it something fun to match the game you are tailgating for or your specific team. You can match it to the name of the mascot or pick a drink that has your team’s colors. Have fun with it, but don’t make it boring! You can even bring a blender and make it a frozen drink. Don’t forget to bring cut, fresh fruit for a garnish!

Rent a Clear Span TentClear Span Tent | American Pavilion

You are there to have a good time. Let everyone around you know this by decorating your space to reflect the same. First, because you cannot predict the weather, renting or buying a clear span tent would be an extremely good idea. This will keep out the elements and protect your food and drinks from wind and rain, as well. Clear span tents come in all shapes and sizes, so choose the best one to meet your needs and match the look you are going for. If you want to go all out, have the tent rental customized! Get your team’s logo, or color, or even have sides added for extra protection.

Then, decorate, decorate, decorate!

Things To Do

If you decide you want to watch other games or you like to watch the sports talk prior to a game, bring a TV, laptop, or other device that you can hookup and stream live feeds. Better yet – hook this up to a sound bar if you have one so that your whole gang doesn’t have to squeeze close together to get near the speaker.

Bring games to pass the time and increase the fun factor. Sure, you could play beer pong or cornhole, but everyone does that! How about a game of football trivia, travel table tennis or card games? Choose anything to keep your friends entertained and active – in an adult like, civilized manner, of course.

Extras

Depending on your location, the time of year, and the time of the game, there are a few things that you may want to include to top off your stylish tailgate experience.

  • During the evening, use lanterns or solar/battery operated string lights to set a soft mood for your space.
  • During peak sunlight hours, make sure you have shades for your eyes available – and some extras for those who may forget.
  • For chilly weather, it is always a good idea to have blankets or throws to keep warm.
  • Ponchos are a necessity if it rains. Don’t forget baggies to protect important items such as cell phones and wallets.
  • Goody bags. No, it isn’t a kid’s birthday, but creating a unique item for you and your guests to sport while you tailgate – and even at the game – is a thoughtful gesture.
  • And a first-aid kit because you just never know what could happen.

Whether you are a sports nut or not, tailgating is about coming together in support of a team with drinks, food, games, and laughter all under one clear span tent. It is up to you to tweak a regular tailgate to make it classy, stylish, and memorable. Set the bar high. But, whatever you do, do not blare 80’s music or surround yourself with screaming, half-naked, drunk football fans. There is no amount of style or class that can override that tailgate experience! Good luck!

 

A Guide to Creating Your Own Greenhouse

Clear Span Tents | American Pavilion

Have you ever considered building your own personal greenhouse? Picture yourself surrounded by many rows of greens and picking veggies for your dinner in the middle of January in Wisconsin. Unlikely? Think again. Greenhouses allow you to grow plants, fruits, vegetables, and flowers all year round, despite the climate in which you live. Between clear span tents, a hoop-style or dome-shaped greenhouse, or any other variety, your options for designing a greenhouse are extensive.

Of course, you will need to have some knowledge on how to build and sustain a greenhouse. And, yes, having a green thumb is a bit helpful, too. Fortunately, with the right tools and right design, you should be able to effortlessly maintain a bright, warm growing space of your own.

To make your greenhouse handiwork easy, here are a few tidbits to grow your awareness (pun intended).

Greenhouse Types

There are a couple of different types of greenhouses to choose from, depending on the space you have available. Indoor greenhouses are perfect for those who have little or no outdoor usable space. These greenhouses use special lighting techniques and windows to simulate the sun. Some seeds may not grow as well in this type of greenhouse and it is not meant for long-term crop growing.

Cold frame or Mini greenhouses are just like their name – mini. They are outdoor greenhouses and they are portable. These greenhouses are good for seed germination, but not necessarily for long term growing.

Finally, we have grower greenhouses. These are more permanent structures, larger sizes, and offer much more in the variety of what can be grown. These can range in size, some being extremely large. They are built for growing crops to full term and year around.

Clear Span Tents and Other Greenhouse Structures
Clear Span Tents | American Pavilion

When it comes to building a greenhouse, there are many structures to choose from, depending on your needs and available space. Below are a few of the most popular:

Clear span tents are free-standing structures that can be customized to your liking. They appear as glass but are made of Polycarbonate sheets that are lighter and more effective in maintaining the proper temperature. Clear span tents are professionally built structures.

Hoop-style greenhouses generally have a wooden base and have PVC pipes arched overhead, creating a canopy or tunnel-type structure. They are then covered in your choice of plastic sheeting. There are many ways to build hoop-style greenhouses, from DIY types to the more professional versions.

Dome shaped (or GeoDome) greenhouses are strong and durable against harsh climates, yet are lightweight and portable structures.

Where to build

If you decide to go with a more permanent greenhouse, you must then decide where to build. This is going to vary greatly on your location – most specifically your climate and terrain.

First, you will want to build your greenhouse on the flattest part of land. This will not only make it easier for your plants and equipment to stay in place on your shelves, but it also allows for even sun distribution.

Second, building your greenhouse north to south will ensure you make the most of the sunlight during all seasons. You will also want to make sure that there is nothing blocking the sunlight, such as mountains or buildings.

Lastly, you may want to take the availability of electric and water supplies into consideration. The more conveniently these hookups are to your greenhouse, the better.

What to plant

Have you considered your options yet? There are so many! Because you will have warmth year-round in your greenhouse, you can grow a variety of produce. Leafy greens, spinach, tomatoes, peppers, various herbs, squash, strawberries, and grapes are a few of the most popular.

You don’t have to stop at fruits and veggies, either! Spruce up your greenhouse with some tropical plants or beautiful flowers such as lilies, violets, roses, and orchids.

Things to consider

Once you decide the type of greenhouse you desire to build, you must consider a few other things.

  • You will need to make sure that the building structure you chose will be able to maintain the temperature needed for what you are going to grow. Heaters during the winter months and fans during hot summer days work together with vents to combat the temperature. Making sure your greenhouse is solar-efficient and well insulated can assist, too.
  • Keeping the humidity down will help your plants grow. Sure, lots of green things grow in a rainforest. But, let’s be honest, your greenhouse is not a rainforest. Vents can help suck out the moisture and maintain a balance.
  • Your greenhouse will have a lot of sunlight – hopefully. But it doesn’t hurt to also use various lighting methods such as fluorescent lights or high intensity lighting systems. Make sure to research the best lighting for your chosen crop.

Benefits

Now that you know all the details, let’s talk about why you would want to consider spending your time and resources creating your very own greenhouse.

  • More money in your pocket. Saving money is a huge benefit to having a greenhouse. Sure, you may have to dish out some funds initially, but the ongoing reward is well worth it. Growing your own vegetables, fruits and flowers will lower your grocery bill drastically. Think about it – not only are you growing much of your meal and dessert, but your flowers for the table centerpiece, too!
  • The freshest produce. Growing your own produce also means you will be eating fresh You will no longer have to purchase your fruits and veggies from the supermarket and pretend like you don’t question where on earth they were grown and how long ago they were picked.
  • Your own personal paradise. Imagine being weeks into winter and all around you seeing nothing but bare trees. And let’s not even mention the freezing temperatures. Now, visualize having a place outside to go where it was warm, green and inviting. Having a greenhouse can help combat the winter blues!

Well, now you know the basics of creating a greenhouse. Know what you want to grow and where you intend to grow it. Once you’ve decided on what to grow choose an appropriate greenhouse structure such as a clear span tent. Then, do your homework on what combination will work best for you. Good luck discovering your green thumb!

Why Losberger is a Top Clear Span Tent Manufacturer

Losberger Tents | American PavilionIf you are looking to create an enclosed outdoor area protected from the elements, the best way to go is with clear span tents. These structures can be made in relatively small dimensions, for example for small outdoor stages or for parties, or they can encompass huge enclosures of space, serving as sports pavilions, exhibition areas, or even as temporary warehouses. What makes one of these structures a “clear span” is the fact that all of the support is engineered to be positioned around the perimeter, so that there are no central columns that will get in the way of people or objects that you want to set up. As these temporary structures are used for almost any kind of outdoor event, there are quite a few companies that manufacture them, however some companies have established an especially strong reputation.

Losberger: German Engineering at Its Finest

Losberger is one of the larger manufacturers of clear span tents, and they are known for producing quality shade structures. They first came to America with their products in the 1990s, and they are still one of leaders in the U.S. market. While other competitors came to the game afterwards, Losberger has maintained a clear position as one of the go-to makers for those who are looking for a top-notch setup. Part of what makes them so successful is their concept of semi-permanent rather than just temporary structures. Their clear span tents can remain in place for as long as you need them to.

The Advantages of Losberger Tents

 There are several aspects to losberger tents that are available from this company such as those described in the following list:

  1. Speed and Efficiency: Suppose there is a sudden need for additional event spacing, or a place to store excess materials while keeping them protected from the elements. The design of Losberger tents is such that they can be put up and taken down quickly.
  2. Economical and Sturdy Materials: The membranes used in these buildings are steel and aluminum, recyclable and lightweight. These components are reliable and secure, while being easy to afford.
  3. A Green Product: Fully recyclable materials allow for minimal waste. If your clear span is going to be used in the day time, the fabric can be set up to allow daylight inside, so that there is no need for artificial light sources. If the structure needs to be moved, it can be done with minimal energy expenditure and at a moment’s notice for maximum convenience.

These are just some of the reasons that give a sense of why people are still choosing Losberger tents when they are looking for dependable, semi-permanent clear span spaces.

Clear Span Tents Available in the U.S.

You can be sure you’re getting the best possible product if you rent from a U.S. provider that offers products of the highest quality, such as those made by Losberger. A dealer who is willing to invest in superior German engineering knows what people are looking for in a clear span tent. Make sure you look to see where the people you are renting from get their tents.

Why Clear Span Tents Work Best for Outdoor Events

Why Clear Span Tents Work Best for Outdoor Events | American PavilionWhen an event takes place outdoors, it’s not always practical to host it out in the open. A sudden thunderstorm or strong winds can ruin an event and postpone it until a later time. Clear span tents provide coverage from both the sun and the elements, giving your guests a place to gather while staying protected from sporadic weather. Not all tent structures are the same however. In fact, some tents have obstructions in the way and are unreliable in severe weather.

Clear Span Tents for Event Gatherings

No matter if it’s a stage show or a business conference, you want to give your attendees the best seating and viewing experience possible. Traditional pole tents work well in some cases when it’s not necessary to have a clear view of a stage or ample walking space between booths. These tents have center poles and other columns that keep the tent stable and upright. They also have exterior guy-lines that get in the way outside. Clear span tents don’t have these obstructions, giving you a completely open space beneath the cover.

A clear span tent has a durable aluminum frame holding it together and steel stakes keeping it upright even in the strongest winds. Furthermore, these reliable tent structures adhere to the International Building Code safety requirements, withstand harsh weather and stay in the same spot for months without any maintenance. Whereas traditional pole tents have limited sizes, clear span tents range from 10 feet to 162 feet in width, giving you as little or as much space as necessary for events of all types.

Accessories Make Clear Span Tents Even Better

Pole tents don’t offer much in the upgrade department. If you need electricity and lighting, you have to run a generator constantly and route extension cords throughout the space. Clear span tents enhance your event even more thanks to their many accessories, some of which are included in the Losberger models. These tents feature integrated flooring that is raised off the ground, helping with water runoff and keeping the floor dry.

You also have the choice of installing hardwood flooring, carpet or stained planks in the tent, giving your guests a reliable surface on which to walk throughout the event space. Want a dramatic effect for your event? Upgrade your clear span tent with theater lighting. Need to stay cool in the heat? Enhance your event space with air conditioning. You can upgrade your clear span tent with even more accessories such as:

  • Glass walls for a 360-degree viewing experience
  • Glass entry doors
  • Power distribution and generators
  • Ceiling liners and clear top panels

Clear Span Tents are the Clear Winners

If you have an outdoor event, don’t take a chance on traditional pole tents. You get so much more with clear span tent rentals, such as a wide-open space, convenient accessories and durability without the maintenance. Clear span tents also come in many different sizes and pass all major safety requirements. Whether it’s a sporting event or a live stage show, you’ll have enough room for your guests while keeping them happy, dry and comfortable beneath a clear span tent.

 

Clear Span Tents: Practical, Cost-Effective and Attractive

Clear Span Tents: Practical, Cost-Effective and Attractive | American PavilionTent rentals are an efficient solution in a variety of situations. Whether you are hosting a garden wedding or a trade show spanning several blocks, clear span tents are a cost effective to provide shelter and demarcate areas. Many rental services offer a wide array of tent styles so that you can choose the one most appropriate for your needs.

The Space You Need

Clear span tents are among the most popular types of tent rentals. This structure is called clear span because it is constructed to provide a clear, unobstructed interior space. The clear span tent’s unique design allows it to be fully supported without any need for interior supports such as columns or poles. As a result, you have greater freedom to configure the interior space of the tent as you wish.

Safety and Durability

When choosing a clear span tent, it is important to select one that is made with high-quality materials. Because the design does not include interior supports, it is essential that the design of the peripheral support structure be solid, especially in the case of particularly large tents. A quality clear span tent will be made with fire-retardant and flexible materials such as vinyl and aluminum. In addition to ensuring proper support, aluminum beams provide the strength and flexibility to endure high winds and rain. A top-quality clear span tent is a temporary structure that can stand in the same place for several years, if needed. Be sure to ask your tent rental vendor about its tents’ compliance with local building codes – reputable vendors will only offer code-compliant tents.

Visual Appeal

Appearance is another important factor when selecting a clear span tent. Although the traditional clear span gains support from cables or ropes that are secured to the ground from outside, some advanced designs today use steel stakes instead. This enhances visual appeal, presenting a neater and sleeker appearance than the usual ropes.

Highly Customizable 

Because clear span tents are modular, they can be configured for a huge variety of sizes, shapes and surfaces. A simple addition of extra beams and panels can expand your tent or change its shape with minimal investment of labor and materials. The flexible structure allows one to compensate for issues such as uneven ground by using adjustable leg heights, shims or scaffolding flooring. Today’s tents offer many choices such as sliding walls, safety glass entrances and glass side walls to let in the light and offer an outside view. Look for tents that use safety, energy-efficient glass to cut down on heating or cooling costs for your tent.

There are many uses for clear span tents. They are convenient and attractive for outdoor events and celebrations, trade shows, conventions, markets, temporary warehousing and more. Today’s manufacturers provide a variety of accessories that make it even easier to use a clear span for your event. Customers have a choice of flooring materials, including wood and carpet for elegant affairs. Lighting options have grown increasingly sophisticated and may include spotlights or theater lighting. Ceiling panels may be available if you want to cover the roof rafters from view. Heating, cooling and power options are also available to suit a range of purposes.

These 5 Accessories Make Clear Span Tents Even Better | American PavilionClear span tents have many advantages over traditional outdoor event spaces. For one, a clear span tent has no interior columns, support beams or other physical obstructions to get in the way. It’s also very durable and stable, withstanding heavy winds and resisting downpours. The steel stakes keep the tent firmly in place and eliminate the need for ropes and exterior obstructions around the area.

The available accessories also set these tents apart from other outdoor tents. With options such as heating and flooring, it’s possible to transform a clear span tent into an extravagant interior space for hosting many different events.

Top 5 Clear Span Tent Accessories

  1. Heating and Air Conditioning

Hosting an outdoor event often means sacrificing interior comforts such as heating and air conditioning. Even if a traditional event tent has side walls, they don’t create an insulated seal at the seams or along the ground. Therefore, the outside air seeps in and affects the overall temperature and comfort level. Clear span tents come with optional energy-efficient side walls, which keep the heating or air conditioning inside and make everyone feel more comfortable regardless of the outside temperature.

  1. Flooring

When setting up a tent, you may have to attach it to either the grass or the pavement. Hard pavement doesn’t provide the most comfortable area on which to walk or stand, and grass can cause stains on pants and shoes. Installing flooring in a clear span tent creates an inviting space and mimics the indoors. It changes the entire mood of the interior space and works well for conferences, dance events and product shows.

  1. Theater Lighting

Hosts sometimes have to close the side walls due to bad weather or to gain privacy during an event, which makes it difficult for the guests to see in minimal light. Although floor and clip lamps provide sufficient lighting, the cords get in the way and look messy in a clean space. Theater lighting not only brightens the interior but gives it a welcoming ambiance for dinner parties, stage shows and product reveals. It’s also installed as part of the clear span tent, getting the lights out of the way and making them look as a natural part of the event space.

  1. Glass Walls

Not every tent needs to have solid walls and block the outside. When outdoor events such as golf tournaments take place, it’s nice for guests to see the action from inside a clear span tent. Glass walls have an energy-efficient design and provide the ultimate view while keeping in the cool or warm air. They also block the wind from circulating inside the tent and blowing items off the tables. Glass entry doors create a cohesive look around the entire tent and provide a complete 360-degree view.

  1. Ceiling Liners

A clear span tent can have glass walls, flooring and theater lighting and still look incomplete if the rafters are visible overhead. Ceiling liners hide the rafters and any wiring that stretches across the tent. Liners often act as the final touch, producing a ceiling that makes the space look more like a real interior. They help to create an official office setting or a conference room for interviewing people or holding corporate meetings. Ceiling liners complement the flooring below and accentuate the space regardless of the event.
