The Hex series is brand new for 2020, but uses some of the tried and tested components from the Pagoda Canopy with more substantial parts where needed.
If you want frame tent coverage with a unique shape and the simplicity of a boltless design, look no further. Using a combination of anodised aluminium and galvanised steel parts for the frame, it's built strong and to last.
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.
