Keep your marquee warm

“Aren’t they a bit cold in winter?” is something we’re often asked about our marquees. And the simple answer is, no, not at all! Our marquees work year-round in all locations and all weathers. So whether it’s the height of summer or the freezing depths of winter you can have the extra space you need. So, read on to find out more about our clever heating and insulation options and how they’ll keep your marquee warm throughout the year…

Energy-saving insulation

We pride ourselves on supplying the perfect marquee to suit your needs and one that is comfortable season after season. In the cooler months this often means starting off with the right insulation, which is the simplest and most environmentally friendly way to keep the chill at bay.

For marquee hire throughout the autumn and winter we have a range of high quality, insulated, hard-sided marquees. On top of this we also supply specialised insulated linings, which regulate temperatures and reduce Co2 emissions. These lightweight, easy-to-install layers retain the heat in winter and the cool air in summer. As an added extra, we can even include a double-skinned, thermo insulated roof, for maximum effect. Alternatively, in the warmer months, our marquees can be equipped with full air conditioning. So, as the mercury rises, temperatures inside stay comfortable and cool.

Turn up the heat

In the midst of winter you may also need additional heating solutions. One of the most common options is indirect, thermostatically controlled heating. This work by ducting warm air into a marquee. This will heat your marquee without sacrificing any internal space. For sites that only have electricity available, we can install hot water boiler systems instead.

For example, at Kingsdale Foundation School, a secondary school in South East London, we were asked to provide more teaching space. Due to health and safety requirements onsite, electric heating, rather than oil-fired heating, was needed. We therefore worked closely with our heating supplier to fit a hot water system that worked within the confines of the electricity supply available.

Fabulous flooring

We can also supply a range of flooring options for your marquee, with everything from non-slip flooring for catering areas to stylish dance floors to help get your party started. It’s also a good idea to add flooring in winter. It provides additional insulation from the cold ground and will help keep your marquee warm.

Open-sided marquees for bars and restaurants

A marquee is also a great way for hospitality businesses to make the most of the peak festive period and maximise revenues while business is good. Many of our winter bookings are for bars, restaurants and hotels that want to add extra space. As well as our standard marquees, we can also supply marquees with open sides, perhaps covering a terrace or courtyard. For this type of location we supply direct gas/patio heaters to keep diners or drinkers warm, as they enjoy their evening.
