The Pagoda² is a curved tension tent that maximises the usable space by using above head cross cables; eliminating the need for support poles. Their anodised aluminium, simple, bolt-less design allows for easy transportation, storage, and installation involving only two people due to the reduced amount of hardware in comparison to other frame tents.

Modular by design, they can be connected to each other using an almost invisible gutter, creating the coverage of a large marquee with the flexibility and easy of setups of a smaller marquee

Proven in use for over 20 years, the Pagoda has received minor upgrades over the years, but remains a popular choice for its strength and simplicity.

Every Crown Canopy marquee comes ready for commercial use, including UK tested fireproof PVC, a 5 year framework warranty and wind loadings.

    Why we use a predominantly Anodised Aluminium structure:

    • Pros: Rigidity, cost, strength
    • Cons: Weight, aesthetics, naturally prone to corrosion
    • Used in: Budget marquees (for the poles)

    Steel is comparatively more rigid than aluminium, but this strength comes with a weight penalty, meaning the poles will be more challenging to handle and move. Steel needs to be galvanised for outdoor use, but can still leave black marks on material that rubs up against it. It is a cost effective choice for the poles of mass market, budget end marquees.

    Anodised Aluminium Alloy:
    • Pros: Durability, lightweight, corrosion resistance, aesthetics
    • Cons: Cost
    • Used in: Premium marquees (for the poles)

    Aluminium is a lighter metal than steel and in order to strengthen aluminium it is combined with a second metal to create an alloy. Aluminium can then be anodised to resist corrosion better than steel, requiring less maintenance. The aesthetic look of anodised aluminium is also another reason it is popular for premium marquees. You will only find anodised large aluminium poles / boxing in premium marquees.

    Due to its aesthetic, weight and durability, aluminium comes with a more expensive price tag.

    At Crown Canopies we do not use steel poles for the above reasons. Instead we use a hard anodised aluminium alloy for the poles and occasionally use corrosive resistant, zinc plated / galvanised steel parts where we require the strength of steel without adding unnecessary bulk.

    This creates an ideal combination of a strong, yet lightweight strucutre which is built to last.

Once again, we were very impressed with the build quality and noticed yet more little improvements to the design since our last purchase. This tent has now become so good, we just can’t see any difference between the Crown Canopy pagoda and the far more expensive offering from your competitors! "

    Aluminium frame
    The Pagoda Canopy uses the strongest T6061 hard anodised aluminium with a 64mm 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
    One of the oldest Pagoda Canopy's still in operation is over 10 years old now. It was one of the first batches sold and since then we have only ever been improving the design and materials
    Walls included
    The Pagoda Canopy's come with 2x Georgian window walls 1x Plain wall with a 1.5m zip door in the middle and 1x Plain wall. The 6x6m and 5x5m come with 2x Georgian windows per window wall. All walls come with tabs and pins at 500mm increments along the bottom of the wall and a mud skirt to deflect win and rain entering the tent
    Designed in the UK
    The Pagoda Canopy has been exclusively designed for the UK market and weather. It uses a boltless design with a heavy duty aluminium frame and has been hired for over 10 years, all year round
    Connects to others
    Connect 2x Pagoda Canopy's together to double the space but not sacrifice on protection. The gutters are made to seamlessly connect the tent together and have a spout each end to take the water away. You can also connect a 6x6m Pagoda Canopy with an Espree
    Espree Feet
    The Pagoda Canopy comes with an additional 4x 560mm stakes and 4x strong ratchets for extra securing during variable weather conditions. You get a total of 8 stakes per marquee
    Transports in a van
    With the longest part at 2.44m (half of the 5x5m centre pole that is split with a sleeve), the Pagoda Canopy can fit in cars with a roof rack or most small vans
    The 6m Pagoda² come as standard ground bar pockets. Add the XG wall ground bar kit (hidden from the outside) for even better securing in windy weather
    Covering manufacture defects. We don't think you'll need it, but for piece mind it's there
