Gala Tent PE Frame Warranty   Gala Tent PE Fabric Warranty

DESCRIPTION

Gala Tent™ Marquees are perfect for many different occasions and provide a truly affordable even solution, whether for home or commercial use; ideal for Trade Stands, Market Stalls, Car Port, Garden Parties, Functions, Weddings, Storage and Community Fetes. Gala Tent™ is a trusted quality trademarked product that will keep your event covered, come rain or shine.

View the New version of the original award-winning Designed & Built in Britain Gala Tent™ Marquee, the marquee that completely transformed the event industry. The PE material is now unquestionably the best quality material of its kind available. Gala Tent™ is the result of over a decade of improvements and modifications, much of which has been stimulated by suggestions and feedback from Gala Tent™ clients. The focus is on product flexibility, functionality and durability. The goal is to ensure that Gala Tent™ remains the best quality structure in its class.

Flexibility

Gala Tent™ is manufactured in seventeen different sizes. If you find that you need a larger marquee at a later date, the Gala Tent™ Multi-Bay option offers the flexibility you need, benefiting from a 2m add-on bay option. Gala Tent™ is supplied with a manufacturer’s quality guarantee. Anyone can understand the frustration of misplacing a pole, peg or panel. With Gala Tent you can simply replace any missing part by ordering it online. How many other marquee suppliers offer that level of customer service?

Non - Toxic Steel Structural Components

* Gala Tent™ steel tubular pole framework is carefully treated with white powder coating, NOT toxic galvanized or zinc coated paint. This method can potentially be dangerous to humans due to the acid that is used in the manufacturing process. Remember that your hands will be coming into contact with the poles, and in some cases, this can lead to poisoning. Galvanized steel also stains the material which then makes the marquee fabric more perishable, this is why Gala Tent™ use powder coating for the perfect elegant finish.

* Gala Tent™ powder coated steel joint connectors secure to the pole frame with locating heavy duty 50mm winged threaded bolts, with no tools required as the specially designed bolt can be tightened by hand.

* Steel base plates are used on the leg poles, which can also be anchored down for extra security with pegs provided.

* Side skirt and sidewall ground pegs are all included in this package.

* Gala Tent™ Marquees are super quality, ahead of the competition with quality price and value for money. We do not sacrifice quality for margin or seek to compete with off-the-shelf, Chinese mass-produced products which do not stand the test of time.

(COPQ) Cost of Poor Quality

"The below video was sent in to our customer service department, by an individual who asked specifically to create awareness of his story after purchasing a cheaper tent elsewhere. The video shows a mass-produced, cheap Chinese-manufactured inferior product which is not suitable for its purpose. Clear video evidence shows the poor quality in manufacturing and misleading descriptions. The frames are sometimes advertised as galvanised, when they are in fact zinc coated and done on the cheap. This can be quite toxic to the touch, and once in contact with the tent covers will eventually stain and perish them. Another clear give-away to look for, is if the range of 6m wide marquees are limited to a height of 3m at the centre apex. This is to save on manufacturing and material costs, and it would be wise to stay clear of this particular tent and any company selling them. If you have had a similar story of events please let us know."

Keep Reading About Gala Quality.

Quality Covers

* All covers are made from 240gsm Polyethylene thermoplastic polymer with variable crystalline structure. It is a flexible, durable and strong material with very unique flow properties that make it particularly suitable for applications which need to be water resistant. Gala Tent Polyethylene (PE) is woven on both sides making this material unquestionably the best quality available. The canopies are double stitched for extra strength, then treated to be UV resistant and water-resistant. Most importantly, they are fire-rated to British BS 5438 and BS 7837 standards.

Gala Tent Material

Gala Tent™ marquees come in two material variations; PE (polyethylene) and PVC. There are a few levels of PVC and PE quality in the market place, and some unscrupulous sellers will incorrectly advertise them as 240gsm or 500gsm. We have even seen material being advertised at 650g to match Gala Tent™ PVC quality, and upon inspection, they are closer to 380gsm PVC and 160gsm PE.

Here is a video case study below

"If you are unsure then order a sample of the material from Gala Tent and few other sellers and compare we will guarantee you that nothing compares to Gala Tent™ quality."

* Gala Tent™ Marquees which are 6m wide have an extra A framework, and extra centre ridge frame. The height is also enhanced and increased to 3.7m, engineered for safety, whilst our competitors supply 3m unsafe versions which do not compare to Gala Tent™.

* You can control the climate and atmosphere of your event by removing individual 2m sidewalls or end panel sections instantly, to accommodate the occasion.

* Gala Tent™ canopies are manufactured in a seamed one-piece roof section which is an important feature, as this enables the material to remain nice and taut for many years of use.

* Both the end gable sections and the side panel sections can be completely or individually removed to make a canopy only structure, which would be ideal for use as a car port.

* The end gable walls feature both a wide entrance and a narrow doorway that can be rolled up.

* The entrances are opened and closed using heavy duty zip or Dutch laced systems exclusive to Gala Tent™

* Large Georgian panoramic windows in each sidewall section let light flood in to the marquee, and every window panel benefits from a blind cover suitable for blocking light, privacy and storage.

* The windows are made from windproof hard-wearing PVC material.

* All side and end panels overlap using zip, bungee or lace and Velcro. This ensures no draughts, and limited movement of covers flapping in the wind, reducing the annoying cracking noise.

* Package includes: Full framework and joint fittings, bungee straps, side panels, end panels, canopy, internal and external sidewall pegs, guy ropes and heavy-duty pegs.

Safety Precautions

It is very important to anchor your marquee to the ground even in the calmest weather conditions. The Ground Bar Rail Set is not included in this package, and for Ratchet Tie Down Kits, and Heavy-Duty Ground Rail Pegs and Storage Bags, please see related items.

*** Gala Tent only sell marquees in the colour white because this is the most popular colour and has the highest second-hand re-sale value. ***

The ordering process was very easy and the assistance I got from the Sales person was brilliant. The delivery was less so. The courier split the delivery and left the Canopy of the marquee on another drop. Had we been desperate for the delivery we would have been introuble. It was enough trouble to have someone present to take the delivery on another day.The Marquee is fantastic. We have a larger older Gala Marquee but the improved construction and fastening system is great and so easy and positive, no sticking spring clips. proper nuts and bolts. The quality of the canopy and the sides is very good with zips and velcro fastenings and lots of eyelets to peg it down. Well done Gala, it was easy enough to erect and a doddle to take down!

WoW Festival, NorfolkOur festival was two days away, the party tent we normally used for a green room suffered complete metal fatigue as we were erecting it and panic levels were going from amber to screaming red. But never fear. The wonderful Hannah was quick to reassure us that a 6 x 8m Gala Tent would be with us the next day, and made a point of phoning in the morning to give me an exact time. In view of the subsequent deluge during the festival, we felt we had made a very sensible choice to purchase a Gala Tent and would have no hesitation in recommending both the product and the company.thanks again, Julie
