Interior view of Structure - Wedding

The Extruded Aluminum Box Beam Structure is the most substantial fabric structure available for tenting .  They are well suited for high-end corporate events such as Olympic Venues and Pro Golf  Tour sites which require large clear spans.  They also have their place in seasonal long term installations at B&B’s and Golf Clubs.

Bed and Breakfast’s lend themselves to this type of tenting if they are hosting weddings frequently and want to avoid the wear and tear to the property by rental tents being installed week after week.  From a guest standpoint, B&B’s are a wonderful place for a wedding reception. They typically have an open, rural setting and are well-landscaped with nice, flat areas for installation of tents.  It simplifies the transportation issues for the bridal party with consolidation of parking,  accommodations and reception on site.

Golf Courses love the structures as well as a natural extension of their revenue generating capability.  Who wouldn’t enjoy having their reception on a well-landscaped property with vast rolling greens.

EC also offers annual maintenance service contracts to take down, clean, and store fabric and/or frames for any type tent, be it lease/purchase or customer-owned.  The lease/purchase options are available if you want to spread the purchase out over the first 3-5 years of revenue production. The frame has a useful life in excess of 20 years.  The fabric life is dependent on use, placement and handling.
