Event tent – Marquee

This is are a good solution for a trade show, exhibition, canteen or small festival. Perhaps one does not need a whole hall, but want a large surface area and plenty space – a frame tent is just what you need.

Lots of room to frolic in

The frame tents are supplied in different widths from three and up to forty metres. The length can be increased by three-metre and five-metre modules up to the desired length.

We have a wide selection of additional equipment such as insulated walls, doors and glass exteriors in stock at all times. The tents are often used for major events such as tradeshows, exhibitions, sporting events and private occasions.

The tent system has been developed by experienced professionals who both know the challenges of the Nordic climate and who understand the needs of users. This is essential when it comes to organising events in a winter country.

Frame tents are flexible and can accommodate many different solutions.

The frame tents are supplied with strong aluminium frames and flame-retardant PVC sheets.

General information about using tents: Important!

The tents marketed by OBW meet the current wind load requirements set out in NS-EN-13782:2005. This standard was approved by CEN (Comité Européen de Normalisation) in October 2005 and replaced all national standards from May 2006. Since this is a Eurocode standard, the requirements of the standard are the same as those that apply to other European markets (members of CEN).
In order to offer the market high quality products, we have focused on the ability of the tent to resist specified load requirements (NS-EN-13782:2005) and that the tent can be anchored to the ground with good safety margins. All our structures are documented with technical calculations and any limitations regarding the use of the products are clearly defined.
When compiling our documentation for the different products, we used the ‘Veileder for sikkerhet ved store arrangementer’ (Large Event Safety Guide) published by the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) as a starting point. This means that we can present all important documentation, for example: Company CV, liability insurance, HSE documentation, technical drawings and declaration of compliance where desired. We could also help with information about ground pressure, limitations of use, etc. Since we have vast experience with large events, we are happy to share our experience and knowledge within this area.

DSB’s guide also defines the responsibility of the organiser of such events. According to the Norwegian Construction Client Regulations, the organiser is considered the client when rigging and derigging temporary structures. Such client responsibility means that the organiser is responsible for ensuring that everyone who takes part in rigging and derigging work follows the applicable safety provisions.

This means that the client must become familiar with applicable legislation, and may be liable in the event of an accident where it is found that the used materials did not comply with legislation.

Scandic party tent, 6 and 9 m wide

Make sure the ground on which the tent is to be set up is secure and stable. The working space should be clear and clean prior to assembly.

  1. Start by laying out all the tent legs in a row. There is a footplate attached to one end of every tent leg and there should be 3 m c/c between every footplate.
  2. Place a structural support on the ground between every tent leg.
  3. Lay out the roof beams and top connectors and connect these to the tent legs to form an arch. Every arch consists of:
    – 2 roof supports
    – 2 tent legs with footplate and corner connector
    – 1 top connector
  4. Start by connecting the tent legs to the roof supports. Next, attach the top connector to both roof supports and, finally, attach the last leg.
  5. Once all arches are assembled, the gable pole(s) can be attached to the top connector.
  6. Pull both halves of the gable fabric from each side into the top groove on the outside of the roof support.
  7. Attach the wires in the gable end while the arch is still lying on the ground. Make sure the wires are on the inside of both the roof supports and tent legs.
  8. Make sure that the footplates are attached to the end of the tent legs and lift the gable arch. Hold it in an upright position and then lift up the next arch. The arches are attached together with the gable pole to the ridge of the roof and at the top and bottom on both sides. Remember to secure the gable poles with the R lynch pins before attaching the wire. Drive the tent pegs into all holes in the footplates on this section of the tent. The first section (base module) is now secure and anchored.
  9. The next arch can now be raised and attached to the previous section.
  10. Remember to finish attaching the gable pole and gable fabric on the ground before lifting up the last arch.
  11. Always drive both tent pegs into the footplates to secure the tent from wind.
  12. Once all tent pegs have been driven into the ground, the next step is to pull the roof fabrics into place. The roof fabric is pulled into the top groove on the roof supports. Attach the cords to the steel rings at the end of the roof fabric and throw the cords over the ridge of the roof and down the other side of the tent. Pull the roof fabric into place and attach it to the top structural support on both sides, with 3 straps on each side.
  13. The walls are attached to the roof fabric by twisting the steel hook at the top of each wall into the eyelet hole on the roof fabric. Place the lower structural support into the pocket at the bottom of the wall and secure the structural support to the tent legs using an R lynch pin.
  14. Make sure the tent is securely anchored with tent pegs in all footplates before the tent is put into use. Also make sure there is enough grip in the ground where the pegs are driven (ground sand, snow, etc. is not solid enough). If you have any doubts about the ground conditions, a pull-up test should be performed. Note: The stated value should be reduced by a factor of 1.4. If tent pegs cannot be used due to poor ground conditions, weights can be used instead. Contact the supplier for the necessary calculations. The tent is calculated according to the DIN standard for 0.3 kN wind load, corresponding to 22 m/sec. According to the DIN standard, the tent must be evacuated with a wind force of over 22 m/sec. The tent is not dimensioned for snow loads and could collapse under snow. To prevent this, the snow must be either physically removed or the tent heated.
