Is your clearspan tent a tent or a building?

It is the best of both worlds. It is similar to a tent in that the installation and removal times can be measured in hours or at the most a couple of days. It is similar to a building in that once it is installed, it can stay up for years with little maintenance. It also meets all national building codes.

From what materials are your tents manufactured?

They are manufactured with a combination of high quality, high strength aluminum and steel parts, along with a strong, long-lasting, UV-blocking vinyl fabric.

How Green is American Pavilion?

For a number of years, American Pavilion has been at the forefront of the green effort. All of the rinse water from our state-of-the-art tent-washing machines is recaptured and used for the next cycle. Our vinyl tent fabrics are 100 percent recyclable, and we switched to high efficiency light ballasts in our manufacturing facility long before these things were popular. These and other efforts make American Pavilion proud to be considered green.
