How are tents secured?   Back to Top

All tents need to be secured. Tent rentals include standard staking on Grass, Gravel or Dirt.

Please speak to your representative for additional costs.

Why do I need so many weights for my tent?   Back to Top

Many tent rental companies believe in a minimum is best approach to weighting your tent. Weather in BC can be unpredictable so we always secure tents for the worst case scenario. Manufacturer recommendations for marquees tents is a minimum of 250lbs per leg. We do use sandbags (25lbs per) for smaller tents which are up for short periods of time but anything staying up overnight needs a minimum of 250lbs per Leg. When using sandbags, 4 sandbags per leg is the absolute minimum. Anytime you see a tent setup with only a single sandbag for weight per leg, keep in mind that tent is held down to withstand roughly 10 to 15 km per hour of wind. To ensure tents can handle the 30 to 50 km per hour winds we see in BC regularly, all our tents are secured with 250lbs to 2,200lbs per leg depending on size and configuration. Feel free to ask your sales rep for a copy of the wind report for the size of tent you are renting.
