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. The Pagoda² 6x6m has the added flexibility of being able to connect to many of the Espree range and also the 12m Hex.
Proven in use for over 20 years, the Pagoda² 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.
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:
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.
