What is a Stretch Tent?
Stretch tents are a smart alternative to traditional tents and marquees. They originated in South Africa and this is where the best quality stretch tents are manufactured to this day. The tent is made of a 3ply, stretchable and waterproof material, stretched over poles which create a tension-based rigging. Stretch tents are highly flexible in terms of size and shape, with sides that can be raised or lowered depending on the requirement. Stretch tents are also available in different colours with a variety of heating, lighting, seating and stage options which can be combined to create a unique ambience for any event.
