The interactive planner is the first page to visit when you are choosing what type of marquee to buy.
When it comes to the type of marquee would be most suitable, it is good to understand the difference in type of marquee and the materials used. Our 4m marquees range come in 2 different types: party tents and marquees. The term party tent is used around the world to describe a marquee, which is better suited for personal or private use. The material used for the party tent is made from a lighter weight material, typically PE (Polyethylene), a tarpaulin like material that comes in 80 to 240 grams per square meter, (the thicker the material the hardier and heavier it is) , or poly/PVC which consists of PVC however coated on just 1 side of the material and is a good alternative to the more expensive PVC marquees. PE for a party tent is perfect as it’s more economic than a heavy-duty marquee, which are really, only meant for use for commercial purposes. PE is 100% waterproof and its significantly lighter weigh means that it is quicker to erect (see our 4 x 4m pop-up gazebo marquee) making this type of marquee ideal for garden parties, as temporary structures and extensions that you can add to an existing structure.
DIY Marquees has seven types of 4 x 4m products in this range, 3 of which are suitable for the private user. For those who are interested in investing in a marquee with extra strength and durability, in the same range of 4 x 4m marquees are commercial and professional options made from PVC instead of PE, which means the integrity of the material, offers more strength for frequent use. The 4 x 4 commercial marquee is also available with a peaked-shaped roof that adds some flare to your standard commercial marquee. Both of these styles are however made with 500gsm PVC and come with a galvanized steel framework made from 42mm thick steel. This is an excellent 3 / 4 season option for any commercial user. (Do not forget to add some cross bracing for extreme weather!)
