Answers to your questions


  1. What size of structure do I need?

    We usually allow approximately 2.2sqm per guest for a lounge set up, 1.75 sqm per guest for a dinner dance, 1.5sqm for a plated dinner and 1.2sqm per guest for a cocktail reception. This is a basic guide, but if you provide details about your event we can advise more precisely.

  2. What are your smallest structures?

    Our smallest structure is a 3m x 3m canopy. We have many different canopy sizes such as 3m x 3m, 5m x 5m and 6m x 6m.

    Our largest structure is 40m wide. We also have structures that are 8m, 10m, 12m, 15m, 20m, 25m, 30m wide. Other bespoke structure are available on requested.

  4. How long does it take to build a structure?

    This depends on the size and location. Most structures can be built in a few days but an interior fit out can take extra time depending on the scope of work. Our canopies can be built within a couple of hours.

  5. Can I build a structure myself?

    Our operations team is fully trained to build our structures and operate to the highest European Health & Safety standards. We do not allow anyone else to build our structures.

  6. How are your structures secured?

    Ideally and as recommended by manufacturer we like to pin a stake into the ground to secure our structures, however if this is not possible we use concrete ballast blocks, which are placed at each 5m leg to secure the structure. The stakes we use are up to 1m in length.

  7. What is the maximum height of the structures you offer?

    Our standard leg height on our contemporary structures is 2.8m; this is higher at the apex of the structure. Our canopy leg height varies between 2.4m and 2.8m. We can also offer a 3.8m leg height on our contemporary structures.

  8. Can your structures sit on uneven surfaces?

    Yes this is achieved by use of a cassette flooring system. If the gradient is greater than 1m and depending on the base surface we would use scaffold to create a level surface to build on.

  9. Can a structure be completely darkened?

    Yes. Our PVC is opaque so this reduces the amount of light and heat that can come through. We can also supply roof linings in a dark colour or block out fabric.
