Frequently Asked Questions about Frame Tents
How long does it take to put up frame tents?
How long it takes to put up a frame tent depends on a lot of factors: First, your crew. Are they experienced pros? Or maybe this is their first time putting up a tent. Experience makes tent set up faster, but learning how isn't hard. Second, you may consider having more tools at your disposal. A frame jack can take the place of some crew members and make tent set up easier for the ones who are there. Third, consider the size of the tent and where it is being set up on. A 10 x 10 inside takes less time to set up than a 40 x 100 on grass. Generally speaking, setting up a frame tent can take anywhere from an hour to three hours, but the above factors play an important role in determining this.
Can a frame tent be installed on asphalt or concrete?
Frame tents can go just about anywhere! Yes, frame tents can be installed on asphalt and concrete. Always remember that staking is the best way to secure your tent. If that’s not possible--for instance, if you cannot stake through the concrete--be sure to use a trusted ballasting system.

Do frame tents leak when it rains?
