Canvas Marquee Tents For Sale

Canvas Marquee Tents For Sale – Why Opt For PVC Over Canvas?

Canvas marquee tents for sale may be less common on the market than they once were, with the development of new manufacturing techniques and materials. These new tent coverings are often cheaper and promise improved functionality. However, many people feel that you simply can’t beat the look and the performance of canvas. But when you’re looking for marquees for sale, what specifically are the advantages this fabric offers over PVC, and what are the drawbacks, if any? Firstly, canvas is a natural fibre and is therefore breathable. It’s also considered to be better for the environment as there is less processing and chemical treatment involved.

Next, when it comes to a heavy duty marquee for sale, canvas is a heavier material than PVC. This has both advantages and disadvantages. On the plus side, canvas falls better when draped over a marquee’s frame, looking more attractive overall in its environment. It is also less likely to be caught by gusts of wind and doesn’t therefore create as much noise as PVC, which snaps as it’s blown back and forth. However, although both fabrics are waterproof, canvas tends to hold slightly more moisture which can make it heavier to manipulate when removing the material from the frame. It’s also slower to dry, which can cause delays in packing the marquee away.

Both canvas and PVC are hard-wearing, though, so very often the choice comes down to personal preference and budget. Canvas tends to be more expensive than man-made fibre tents.
