How to Choose the Right Canopy Tent Type
July 2, 2024
9 minutes read

Getting ready for a business event or trade show? Or trade fairs and launch events? Canopy tents are popular for these outdoor events because no other product offers better brand exposure, convenience, and protection from rain, wind, and sun.

The best pop-up canopy tents are designed with waterproof polyester canopies to keep you dry, use sidewall attachments to block strong winds, and use high UPF materials to block UV rays. But there are also more and more brands selling cheap alloy steel frames that are prone to tipping over, and the canopy fabric is very thin, which may leave you wet or sunburned. These data combine to form a variety of canopy tent types. What we need to do is how to choose the right canopy tent type for you.

What should you consider when choosing a pop-up tent?

If your company needs to conduct offline brand promotion activities, you need multiple commercial-grade tents with high-quality aluminum frames and custom printed logos. If you are going to travel to the beach, you need a lightweight and portable awning with a rust-resistant frame. If you are hosting an outdoor event, you need a large pop-up tent with a durable steel frame that is large enough to accommodate a table and a few chairs. Going camping? A waterproof camping awning with mosquito net or mesh screen sidewalls can help you stay dry and free from insects.

In this article, we will focus on various types of commercial-grade tents from Extremetent and explain their features in detail. As a canopy tent manufacturer, we have been designing and producing canopy tents for the past two decades. After many reviews and tests, we have gathered several of the most popular canopy tent series, which are distributed in the European, Australian and North American markets.

Problems in choosing different types of canopy tents

  • How many people can a regular 10x10M pop-up tent accommodate?

A 3x3M awning provides nine square meters or 100 square feet of shaded space, with enough room to comfortably accommodate up to six chairs. In contrast, the smaller 5×5 and 8×8 awnings are more portable, but can only comfortably shade two to four people. The larger 12×12 and 10×15 tents are suitable for large parties and commercial events, providing enough space to accommodate up to 10 chairs. Commonly used for commercial events such as weddings, trade shows and street vendors, the 10×20 tent can shade up to 15 people.

  • How to secure a canopy tent outdoors to prevent it from blowing away?

Deciding what type of weights to use to set up a pop-up canopy tent depends on the type of surface the tent will be on. The most effective way to secure a pop-up tent on the beach is usually with sandbags so you don’t have to carry heavy objects. Securing with guy wires and ground stakes is a great option for securing on grass and backyards. For hard surfaces such as decks, patios, or parking lots, it is recommended to use weighted plates that slide onto the tent’s steel feet. Reinforcement support is also something we value. Check out our accessories page to see the various reinforcement products we offer.

  • Are all canopies waterproof?

Most canopy tents are waterproof, but not waterproof. Most canvas canopies do not have enough polyester thread count to make the fabric completely waterproof. However, some brands (including Extremetent) apply a waterproof coating to the canvas and heat seal the seams to make it 100% waterproof. In addition to this, Extremetent also offers high-quality PVC fabric as the top of the tent, which is completely waterproof.

  • What materials are used for pop-up tents?

Most canopy frames are made of steel, with a powder coating to prevent rust and corrosion. However, most companies choose high-quality aluminum frames because it is tougher and more beautiful, and the surface can be anodized. Canopy tent fabric is usually made of denier polyester with a fineness between 200-600. At Extremetent, we have high-quality fabrics of 900D, as well as PVC fabrics. This material is popular in many event products because it is durable and tough, but more affordable than nylon.

  • Can one person put up a canopy?

Yes, one person can put up a 10×10 canopy tent by themselves. However, we have found that this tends to put more stress on the joints over time, as one person needs to pull and shake the frame more to lock it into place. This can cause the truss connectors to weaken faster than normal, or even worse, break, so we always recommend getting help when possible, and two people is usually the best option for a canopy tent.

  • What color canopy tents are the coolest?

Black tents are just as cool as white tents in solid colors. Dark tents will feel warmer to the touch because they absorb more heat, while light tents reflect light, but the temperature underneath both tents remains the same. In general, we still prefer light tents because they make the inside of the tent brighter than dark tents. But who can resist a custom canopy tent that is completely yours, we can dye and stitch it in any color you want, and print your own brand and logo.

In fact, everyone does not come into contact with many canopy tents in their lifetime, but we can usually make a good choice before buying. How can we not love a canopy tent that is strong, practical, beautiful and flexible enough? As our agent customer said, “Locally, their customers have very good feedback. Maybe they struggle before making up their minds, but they are always happy after successfully placing an order. I am glad that the canopy tent provided by Extremetent has won me regional praise.” It is necessary to learn how to choose a canopy tent that suits you. It can make you the brightest star at offline gatherings, business activities, trade exhibitions, and trade fairs.
