Marquee safety

Sawtry Marquees take our safety and yours seriously and ensure that before we leave the marquee that it is safe for use and secured down in case of bad weather.

Sawtry Marquees have a Risk Assessments and Public Liability Cover that you are more than welcome to view.

We have two style of marquees. Our clearspan 6m and 9m wide marquees are held down with 2′ and 3′ long stakes

And our 3m and 4m party tent style marquees are installed using a combination of stakes and spiral anchors (as in the below two images) to ensure that the odd gust of wind does not spoil your day.

Where grass or gravel is not an option we use weighted blocks or water tanks. On most installations we use a ground bar system that adds extra stability to the frame.

Marquee vs Gazebo

There is no doubt that buying a Gazebo offers a cheaper solution to hiring but if you allow us to install your event marquee we will take away the unnecessary time and stress involved in building and securing the frame, time better used elsewhere.

The image below shows a 6m x 12m marquee that we supplied and built for a customer and a 6m x 12m gazebo frame built by another exhibitor next to ours. This was a typically windy day, which I believe you can see from the other exhibitors gazebo, which is on the left of the picture. This picture was taken just before I lent them some ratchets and stakes before their frame left the ground.
