How does the Espree extend your hire season?

  • Walls included: 3x Panoramic walls, 3x Plain walls with centre zips
  • Strongest framework and heavy duty PVC
  • Extensive securing: Large triangle feet, 18x 750mm double-head stakes and 10x 560mm single-head stakes

  • XG Espree Wall Ground Bar System - Usually found in premium frame marquees (£100 saving when compared to purchasing it seperately)
  • Stronger resistance against the wind (for the bottom of the walls)
  • Faster erection and take-down compared to the standard wall tabs and pegs
  • Perfect for securing the bottom of the walls on hardstanding

  • Compares (and in many way improves) against the other 'PLUS' models available in the market. See our specs below for comparison or contact us to discuss

  • Largest and strongest aluminium centre poles on the market, adjustable too to get a well tensioned roof (76mm / 2.99" diameter pole)
  • Heavy duty white opaque 550g PVC (19 oz) - UK fireproof approved to B.S. 5438, blackout and UV resistant. This make the Espree heavier than the alternatives due to a thicker PVC (disadvantage), but with thickness comes strength (greater advantage)
  • 28x Stakes included. You don't have to use all of them in fine weather, but if the weather is variable then use them for piece of mind. A marquee is only as good as the ground it's secured to. See 50mph wind loadings for more details
  • Variable weather conditions ready with specially designed feet that take up to 4 large stakes each
  • Fairy light loops for the wall rims and wall hooks for folding the walls back
  • Erected within 1 1/4 hours (weather permitting, using 2 people, excluding walls, first few times may take longer)
  • All parts designed for the UK, stocked in the UK
  • XG Espree Wall Ground Bar System Included

    Reviews of the Espree Canopy
    "We were absolutely blown away by this tent, we have never encountered such a versatile & easy to erect marquee. The instructions were easy to follow and the unit is very manageable. It is so easy to erect, our Commercial Director Kester and Hospitality Assistant Rosie managed to put this tent up on their own in less than an hour, only having seen it erected once before"
    Bradfield College
    "We purchased the Espree 89 as a “cheap spare canopy” in case Wedding bookings required a last minute cover for reception drinks. However after the first practice installation at our yard we found it to be a good quality, easy to erect canopy that looked a great. Customers who saw pictures of it in our portfolio immediately started booking it and were very impressed by its look and durability. I would highly recommend it as a spare for larger companies and a great business opportunity for start up businesses."
    Quality Marquee Hire
    "Generally the quality is good with the poles much more robust than the original Capri marquees, the velro sides are harder to hang than the Capri sides but when all pegged down they do provide a more robust feel."
    Medstead Marquees
    "You've solved all the problems with the Capri"
    "If I could replace all of my Capri's with Espree's right now I would based on what I can see"
    "With the Espree I'll start hiring them for weddings like I once did with the Capri's, I've had many sleepless nights worrying about if my Capri's will be there in the morning, but these Espree's seem much stronger"
    "I would be worried about my Capri's in these gusts (30-40mph), but these Espree aren't moving with all this extra securing"
    "I used to buy second hand Capri's for £1500, but I think its worth it to stretch the budget and invest in something thats new and looks better built"

    Aluminium frame
    The Espree uses the strongest T6061 hard anodised aluminium with a 76mm / 2.99" diameter centre tube and a 3.2mm wall. This is designed to be resilient for UK weather and is bigger and stronger than any of the competitors
    Quality PVC
    The 550g UV resistant, UK fireproof certified, UV resistant, blackout PVC is a little heavier than others but benefits from more tensile strength and increased durability. This PVC is proven in the field for over 10 years on the Pagoda Canopy
    Fireproof PVC
    All the PVC is fully tested in a UK laboratory to meet strict UK fireproof regulations. If you are using this at a public event be aware that if a fire officer finds that the PVC hasn't got a UK specific fireproof certificate (a general European or American will not be sufficient) you may be asked to take your marquee down
    Adjustable poles
    An adjustable centre foot allows you to increase or decrease the theoretical height of the centre poles. This is particularly useful for keeping the top tensioned on uneven ground and also makes it easier to erect. With a Pole lifter / Stake puller it makes it even easier to adjust the pole length when its in place and pull the 18 double head stakes out.
    Walls included
    The Espree 102 comes with 3x Panoramic window walls and 3x Plain walls. All walls come with a centre zip, tabs at 500mm along the bottom of the wall, pins and heavy duty 50mm Velcro to connect to the roof. The Velcro has been fully tested to prevent water and wind entering the tent
    Designed in the UK
    The Espree has been exclusively designed for the UK market and weather. It uses far more securing than alternatives available and will therefore extend a hire season further than possible before
    Connects to others
    Connect 2x Espree 102 together to create even more space. If you have a Capri already then we have a bespoke gutter to connect them together too. If you have a 6x6m Pagoda Canopy then there is a gutter for that too! (great as a service tent)
    Espree Feet
    The tailor made feet have been designed to allow unprecedented securing that covers outside and inside of the tent. Provided in the price are 3x 750mm double head stakes per foot. Add another stake for the most extreme conditions
    With 18x 750mm double head stakes and 10x 560mm single head stakes, the Espree 102 is incredibly strong and versatile
    Transports in a van
    With the longest part at 2.71m (part of the centre pole that is split with a sleeve), the Espree can fit in cars with a roof rack or most small vans
    Covering manufacture defects. We don't think you'll need it, but for piece mind it's there
