Commercial tents are widely used nowadays for functions and even some business will use them to provide covers for their customers on a long term basis. They range in sizes dramatically, the smaller ones may comprise of a simple cover placed on a framework to provide shelter for a few people over stalls etc. while larger ones may be enclosed fully to provide an extra room at functions such as wedding and some of these can hold up to 100 people with no problem at all.
Most companies that rent the commercial tents out for use will also send out a team of staff to erect the tents and ensure that they are stable prior to use; with the size of some of these it would be impossible for a person hiring the tent to undertake this task themselves.
The commercial tents are now available in a variety of styles, we all know the traditional gazebo type of commercial tent but some of the newer models will have sloping roofs, useable roll up windows and in most cases they are strong enough to install a lighting system on the framework enabling them to be used at any time of year and at any time of day.
Expect to pay a decent amount of hiring costs for the large models, they do not always come cheap but if it is a one off event that you require them for, purchasing the tent is not a viable action. Browsing around the internet will give you some idea of the styles that you can use and often they have pictures of the tents in situ so that you can decide which the best is for you.
