IBC Covers
Practical challenges of a marquee provider
13 April 2018

So, the marquee has to be positioned on a concrete or wooden surface. How to secure the marquee?

 

Options include a wooden floor throughout, concrete blocks, straps to a nearby strong structure or 1000l IBC containers filled with water.

 

Quite often these circumstances arise for corporate events - weddings and parties tend to be on open land where stakes can be used. But there is always a way.

 

Recently, Western Marquees commissioned locally based Cut n' Cover to manufacture white PVC covers to fully disguise the water weights required to secure marquees at Tiger Day at Bovington Camp on 28-29 April 2018.

 

A previous party marquee situated on artificial grass required us to cover the same 1m x 1m x 1m containers with the same material. The result - a perfect extension to the 'grass' covered bar in the Sandbanks garden!
