High Peak Pole Tents

Frame Tent

The frame tent has an assembled framework that supports the top. It is free standing and must be anchored to hold in place – usually stakes or water barrels. Ideal for events that cannot have obstruction inside as it does not require a center pole.

Clear Span Tent

This is a robust aluminum tent structure that does not require internal poles of any kind to support the tent. Fabric panels run through the channels of the frames and give it a tight drum-like fit that makes it virtually water tight. They can be erected and removed quickly for the most elegant one night party or stay installed indefinitely for longer term use. They come in a choice of white or clear tops. The clear top provides compelling evening beauty when lit properly.

Features:

  1. Widths of 30 to 80 ft.
