Rectangular Marquees

Rectangular Marquee Tents

RECTANGULAR MARQUEES can be found in historical sketches from Roman times through the Medieval era and well into the 19th century. We have seen paintings of these tents in war campaigns and 18th century garden parties. With square corners, they offer a great deal of useable floor space for furniture or a vender’s wares. Historically, many of these tents were decorated with stripes for a truly striking appearance.

Rectangular Marquees have been popular at Rendezvous and Trade Fairs as vendor’s trade tents. Walls are easy to move, or remove, to display wares and make it easy for customers to enter and stay dry while they shop. Walls may be lifted like awnings to further shade clients and spread inventory beyond the normal wall space. Optional wall ties allow the walls to be lowered, exposing stock while adding to security, or for venting.

Families have found the benefits of Rectangular Marquees to be delightful for multiple-day events. With just a slight bit more set up time the Marquee offers stand up room in the entire tent, poles to hang clothing and gear, the ability to subdivide for separate selling and living, and a wonderful structure to weather a long storm.

We build our Rectangular Marquees to be supported with wall poles at every seam (approx. every 3′) as the seams are designed to take the weight of the canvas and the stress of the wind. Walls are suspended with brass snap hooks and “D” rings. We also offer the wooden toggles that appeared on the Austrian 15th century marquee if you don’t mind trading the interior valance for the look of the past.

Mud flaps are standard on all marquees, (10″ wide).  Doors are routinely placed in the center of the long sides but may be moved anywhere or added to any location that suits your needs.  The addition of a third and fourth door add to ease of set up and ventilation on those hot summer days.

Prices reflect Rectangular Marquees at specific wall heights, we add or subtract from wall heights to a clients specification. Although period marquees had steep roofs to shed rain and snow, we also have patterns to increase or decrease the roof rise and therefore, the overall ridge height.

Rectangular Marquee Slant Wall

SLANT WALL RECTANGULAR MARQUEES: Rectangular marquees can be built with slanted walls. Many drawings and paintings of tents in the Middle Ages and the 18th century show slant wall rectangular tents in use. We use a standard slope of 18″ for a wall so the tent footprint is three feet greater than the eaves measurement. (Please be sure of the placement of doors as the slanted walls make moving the doors to a new location impossible.) To modify any marquee above to slanted walls please add 7%.

FLOORS ~ Even on a dry day, and especially at night, moisture rises from the ground into your tent. Canvas floors breathe too much and plastic sheeting is quite noisy. We began with a 15 oz. woven poly-cotton fabric, treated it with a flame-retardant, and applied a vinyl finish for a vapor-barrier. Our flame-retardant, vapor-barrier floors add a great deal to the comfort level of your tent.  Send for a sample piece if you want to see and feel it!!!
