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.

"- Overall a very good structure for the price
- PVC and steelwork was high quality
- Roof tensioning system down each leg was user friendly"

Aluminium frame
The Hex 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
Walls included
The Hex Canopies come with 3x Panormaic window walls, 2x Plain walls and 1x Plain wall with a 1.5m zip door in the middle. All walls come with tabs and pins at 500mm increments along the bottom of the wall and a mud skirt to deflect wind and rain entering the tent
Designed in the UK
The Hex 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 Hex to each other, to the 6m Pagoda or Espree 102. The gutters are made to seamlessly connect the tent together and have a spout each end to take the water away
Espree Feet
The Hex comes with an additional 6x strong ratchets for extra securing during variable weather conditions. You get a total of 12x 750mm double head stakes per marquee
Transports in a van
With the longest part at 3m, the Hex Canopy can fit on cars with a roof rack or most medium size vans
Quick to erect
The Hex is a boltless design that can be put together quickly by most physically able people, even those new to marquees
The Hex come as standard ground bar pockets. Add an all aluminium ground rail 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
