Large Tent Rentals that will Survive Extreme Weather

Losberger Tents | American Pavilion

Extreme weather happens and there isn’t a thing you can do about it. Well, let’s just say you cannot stop it or change it, but you can adapt. For example, you can change your routine. If you know the weather is supposed to be extreme in the evening, you can make sure you complete what you need to do early so you are out of the rough weather when it hits. You can also decide to switch up your wardrobe to match the weather conditions – sweaters, raincoats, boots, shorts, umbrellas, etc. Or, of course, you can just stay indoors and avoid the weather altogether.

But, what can you do when that isn’t an option? You can find a tent that will survive extreme weather conditions and let you accomplish what you need to – despite Mother Nature’s plan!

Types of extreme weather

Weather conditions can vary, depending on location. However, each type can become extreme – wind, rain, snow, cold. Here are a few of the most extreme weather conditions that can put a damper on any outdoor events or jobs:

  • Hurricanes – From June through November, hurricanes are a real risk along the east coast of the U.S. Many people need to arrange outdoor activities to avoid any tropical disturbance.
  • Snowstorms – For those individuals in the north, snowstorms can wreak havoc on outdoor activities, including events and job sites. Whether one inch or one foot, some of the white stuff goes a long way.
  • Ice storms – These storms hurt communities all throughout the north. They take down power lines and make driving less than ideal – and downright dangerous!
  • Heavy rains – These rains can lead to flooding. They can come down by the inches within mere minutes and wash out any outdoor activity.
  • Winds – Winds can make the outdoors frustrating. Not only is it difficult to walk or ride a bike against the wind, it is also difficult to try to accomplish any projects when the wind is blowing out of control.
  • Tornadoes–These suckers are scary and can happen in an instant. Depending on the strength of them, there may be nothing you can do to prepare and avoid catastrophic damage.

All weather patterns can range from minor to extreme.

Who faces challenges by extreme weather?

When thinking of who deals with the trials and struggles relating to outdoor weather conditions, it will most definitely be those who must be outside during them. Or those who need to be outside to complete a project, but can’t due to the extreme weather. For example, construction companies, sports teams and athletes, contractors, farmers, etc.

Weather can even affect those who are throwing a party or having an event. It isn’t always possible to move an entire wedding party indoors when heavy rainstorms threaten. Therefore, they will face the challenge of having to potentially come face to face with extreme weather or scramble for shelter.

How large tent rentals can help

Many times, weather can make or break a project. It can disrupt a construction site with flooding waters, high winds, or a heavy snowfall. Not only does it slow the progress and push back the completion date, but it also can lead to an unhappy customer. For farmers, the weather can mean the difference between a high crop yield and sufficient payday or a loss of crop and income.

With that being said – how can large tent rentals help ward off the extreme weather?

  • A tent rental can allow construction workers and contractors to continue working despite the outdoor conditions.
  • It can allow companies to meet deadlines, rather than lose out on work.
  • Large tent rentals can save crops from potential devastating damage due to extremeweather conditions.

Losberger tentsLarge Tent Rentals | American Pavilion

Losberger tents offer a perfect solution for those who weather the outdoor elements day in and day out. These tents can solve so many problems that can halt a project or an event – without a lot of fuss. They are very easily erected, which means they can be moved around from site to site with ease.

The Losberger tents are large – offering protection for your entire crew and project. Or, if you are having an outdoor event that is getting slammed by unexpected weather conditions, there will be plenty of room to bring it inside.

Surprisingly, these tent rentals withhold hurricane force winds and are sturdy enough to hold fallen snow without collapsing. In addition, the climate control is ideal for keeping guests and workers warm (or cool) and allowing farmers to grow crops in the most ideal conditions.

Additional perks of a Losberger tent

Now you are aware of how you can manage to keep your productivity up, your guests or crew healthy and safe, and that, believe it or not, it is a tent that can make all of that happen. What else can a Losberger tent do? There are even more perks to check out:

  • It is important to know that Losberger tents require very little maintenance. Once they are erected, they are fully functional without any difficult maintenance or repairs – allowing you to solely focus on your event or project.
  • There are no poles. Who wants a wide-open space with poles in the way? Poles make it difficult to move machinery or erect large structures underneath without causing damage to the tent. Because these tents come sans poles, you will have less to worry about.
  • Tents can be customized to meet any size requirements – and they can be very large, to meet the needs of your project, crop or event.
  • Power is not a foreign concept when it comes to tents, either. With proper planning, temporary power can be delivered under the tent to make everything that you may need run smoothly.

When you face extreme weather, there are many things that you can do to protect your plans and keep moving forward. Be smart and prepared – don’t let the weather slow you down.

Follow These 5 Steps to Decorate a Tent Rental

Large Tent Rentals | American Pavilion

First and foremost, congratulations for choosing to hold your party or event in a tent rental. There is no better way to get a venue where you want, when you want it, and how you want it. Large tent rentals allow you to find a vacant location of your choice – no longer requiring you to wait or work your event around a banquet hall schedule – and erect a tent based on your exact customizations (type, size, shape, perks, etc.). A tent rental is like a blank canvas when it comes to decorating, too. Such as smart choice!!

So, now that you’ve got your tent, how do you decorate it?

Layout

It is wonderful that large tent rentals allow you to have an open space to decorate and organize how you wish. However, that means you must figure out the layout, too, since there is no set area for a dance floor, or dining area, or restrooms, etc.

Depending on the type of event or party you are having, you will need to determine what areas you will need for your guests – and don’t forget the necessities. You will need to do this before you start decorating so you know how to plan the lighting, the décor, etc.

  • Are you having a dance floor?
  • Do you need a stage?
  • Are you having a sit-down dinner or a mingling cocktail party?
  • How much seating will you need and where will you put it?
  • Will you require a food prep and/or serving area?

These are the things you will want to consider as you begin decorating your tent.

What’s your style?

When it comes to decorating, you want to keep it uniform throughout the tent. Mixing themes and styles could make your party space look a bit confused or discombobulated. Pick your theme or style and stick with it.

There are many to choose from:

  • A skyline party. Use tons of white balloons to create the effect of clouds. Use blue backgrounds and fabrics to look like the sky.
  • Tropical paradise. Use heaters throughout your tent during cold months and transform your tent to a tropical paradise – carry your guests away to the islands.
  • Asian flair. Use paper lanterns and bright colored paper pom-poms to decorate your space.
  • A forest fairytale. Use string lights and branches to decorate your tent. Add greenery throughout the venue, including green garland.
  • Art space. Why not drape white fabric and use paint splashes to add color?
  • Turn a book into life.
  • Pick a decade – A fifties diner, the sixties peace and love era, the 70’s disco era, the 80’s neon colors, etc.
  • Create a magical candy land. Think Willy Wonka.
  • A diamond party with glitter and all things that shimmer.

A style and theme are as unique as you are. So, do a little soul-searching and use your imagination to determine what will give you the effect you are looking for. Make sure you get through this step first to help guide you with the fluidity of the look.

Splashes of color

Tents are great for party places, but they sure don’t offer much in the way of color. That is where your creative side will come in. You can get your color in many forms – actual decorations, lighting, or fabric.

Make it colorful, make it stand out, and make it inviting.

Fabric, fabric, and more fabricLarge Tent Rentals | American Pavilion

Fabric seems to be a popular thing when it comes to tent rentals. It can create an elegant look for your partying needs. In fact, when fabric is draped throughout the tent, it can almost make you forget that you are even in a tent!

There are several methods to draping fabric:

  • Fabric walls. Whether you choose to have sidewalls on your tent or not, you can use fabric to drape down the walls and add a beautiful texture. This method can also be used a backdrop for a main centerpiece of the party, such as a wedding cake or stage area.
  • Ceiling drapes with centerpiece. Fabric can be draped from all edges along the circumference of the tent to meet in the middle at a centerpiece. For example, fabric to meet in the middle with a mirror ball, candelabra, chandelier, or floral centerpiece. It creates an eye catching, and even breathtaking, decoration.
  • Decorate the poles with fabric. Use fabric to drape around poles that surround the tent. You may simply cover the poles, or drape it from the poles to the center of the tent.
  • Create a covered ceiling. Another method for decorating with fabric is to drape it from one side of the tent directly to the other.

Make sure that you incorporate color into your fabric, as well. Layering it with your party colors can transform your tent rental.

Finding the Perfect Lighting for Large Tent Rentals

Lights can be eye-catching or romantic. There can set a mood or increase energy. Here are a few of the most popular lighting methods for tent rentals:

  • Candles. Talk about romance! It will depend on the mood you are trying to achieve on whether you should use candles. You can use them as table centerpieces in clusters or in areas surrounding the party area.
  • String lights. You can decorate the party area with string lights in a bistro method. This can give your party a soft, backyard garden party
  • Tiki torches. Having a luau or tropical party? Tiki torches can give a warm, island feel to any outdoor event.
  • Color lighting. Use various lighting techniques to add color or spot lights on white surfaces, the ceiling, or on any focal point within the venue.

Decorations don’t make or break an event, but they sure do add some ooh and ahh factors for guests. It is fun to add a little flair to your tent – especially because it is a wide-open space that you can make your own! So, open that imagination and go for it!

 

Transition to Off-Grid Living Using a Large Tent Rental

Large Tent Rental | American Pavilion

Home as we know it keeps us safe, it keeps us warm, it keeps us dry, and it keeps us comfortable. It also keeps us connected. Our world today has us absorbed by electronics. We lose out on so many precious moments of life because our attention is drawn away by a ring, a ding, a chirp, or a you’ve got mail. It is more common to see a group of individuals standing together looking down at cell phones than it is to see a group of kids playing a game of baseball in the park. When you feel overwhelmed by all the technology, it is time to unplug. From using a large tent rental for shelter to raising livestock, you could turn a piece of vacant, secluded land into an adventure and an opportunity to disconnect yourself from all the daily stimuli and reconnect with yourself.

Keep reading for the basic steps to help you transition to world of off-grid living.

Using a Large Tent Rental

Shelter is necessary. You may think that you want to go off the grid in an extreme way, but, after exposed to the wildlife, the insects, the weather and its elements, you will likely change your mind – quickly.

One of the most cost efficient forms of shelter is a large tent rental. Large tent rentals are especially handy since they can be assembled at any location. Since you are going off-grid, that could mean you will need shelter in a remote area with the possibility of tricky terrain. Tents are customizable, allowing you to design them to meet your needs in size, shape, etc. and include flooring, sidewalls, windows, etc. Large tent rentals are also made of durable fabric and can withstand any potential damage that can come your way.

Other potential shelters are campers, professionally built residences, or anything that is large enough to live in and turn into a comfortable living space.

Water is a Necessity

It’s a fact of life – if you want to survive, you will need access to clean water. Unless you plan on walking down to the creek to fill your bucket, walk back home, treat your water, and hope you have enough for all that your family will need – you are going to want to make sure you are hooked up to a well or some other water irrigation system that can deliver you clean water.

Say no to gathering water bottles and gallon jugs, unless you intend to reuse them. You are going off-grid to live off the land. Therefore, don’t pollute that very land with wasteful plastic!

Food

Here is when you must show everyone what you are made of. Are you able to forego dining out, fast food, and Starbucks and, instead, learn to hunt for your food and have a farm with livestock and a garden? Livestock, such as cows, chickens, ducks, turkeys, and pigs, among others, can serve as a great food source. Tending a garden can produce healthy and tasty veggies and fruits that are full of the good stuff for you. The best news? You control what your livestock eats and what you spray on your garden. In other words, you will finally have total control over the food your family eats.

You will likely make sporadic trips to a grocery store or market, depending on how remote you live. However, when you do so, you can stock up on staples like rice, beans, powdered milk, or any other non- perishable food items you may desire.

Energy SourcesLarge Tent Rental | American Pavilion

The rage is all about solar panels! These panels use the sun’s rays and convert it to an energy source. The cost of solar panels may put a dent in your wallet initially, but the system will last you for many years. When you average out the monthly cost you currently pay in your fully-wired home, you will realize you are actually going to be saving money.

Wind is another possible source of energy. However, not all off-grid homes are located in areas in which wind would be a feasible source.

Septic

You will have to go to the bathroom. Your family members will, too. It is a fact of life. And, well, it must go somewhere. Because you will want to make sure your waste doesn’t negatively affect your food sources or water, you will want to ensure you have a properly functioning septic system. Whether it is built into the ground or a motor home-type septic tank that will require occasional emptying, you will be thankful for the septic tank.

Another method some hardcore off-grid folks choose is a composting toilet. This will collect your waste and turn it into compost.

Whatever method you choose, make sure to consult the zoning board in your area to confirm your septic method meets the requirements.

Willingness to Embrace Change

When choosing to move to a remote location and completely rearrange everything about the way you currently live your life, you are going to have to expect some difficulty in adjusting. Living off grid means getting rid of things such as TVs, cell phones, tablets, computers, washers and dryers, microwaves, air conditioning, etc. Sure, you can still have these items, but you will not likely have the means to use them how you are used to. Remember – you are making your own energy now.

Many people who have chosen this route either loved it or hated it. It surely isn’t for everyone. But, those who love their decision and have embraced the change to off-grid living, have found a sense of calm that somehow gets lost in the midst of all the electronics. In fact, families are brought together because, being cut off civilization, they don’t have anywhere else to turn. It can break down barriers. And for those with kids – this change can teach responsibility, the joy of the outdoors, learning to live off the land, and staying connected with family.

Are you ready? Unplug and go. Now – before you change your mind!

Finding the Best Tent Rental Service

Finding the Best Tent Rental Service | American PavilionIf you are busy planning a large event, then you will probably need to rent fabric buildings to shelter attendees. You may have been planning to simply search the Internet for a rental company in your area, but not all tent rental services are created equal. If you want to be totally satisfied with your order, there are certain qualities you should seek in your rental company.

 Nearby, or Willing to Be

Obviously, you must choose a tent rental service that caters to your area. However, this does not necessarily mean you are limited to companies whose headquarters are in your town or state. Certain companies offer their services on a national scale. Companies that are willing to travel across the country to work with you may be more passionate about their work and have a greater commitment to their customers’ satisfaction.

 Diverse Options

Some tent rental companies offer only basic options, which can be disappointing if you want to host an unforgettable occasion. You do not have to settle for the basics, because there are countless ways you that can customize a simple tent to turn it from boring to exceptional. Look for a company that offers unique amenities such as the following:

  • Portable HVAC systems
  • Flooring options like carpeting and hardwood
  • Specialized lighting
  • Sliding glass doors

 Proud History

Comparing companies’ histories could be an enlightening tool for discerning which ones have the greatest merits. A well-established company is more likely than a newer one to have deep institutional knowledge of the industry, which translates into better service. A family-owned business will also be steeped in tradition and loyalty to the trade because these qualities will have been passed from parent to child for generations.

The success of your event could ultimately hinge upon the tent rental service that you choose. With this in mind, you should find a company whose products and services demonstrate its commitment to excellence.
