Call it what you will – a pop-up canopy, a party tent, an easy-up shelter – but one of these portable temporary shelters is an extremely versatile product. Made out of a powder-coated steel frame and a waterproof, UV-resistant polyester cover, each canopy offers several uses around the home, as well as in many commercial situations. So, what are some of the possibilities?
Better than an umbrella, pop-up canopies are a versatile solution for keeping out the sun. Although the shelter shouldn’t be left up permanently outside, it can be set up in minutes. Fold it out, anchor it, and set a chair under it to keep out UV rays as you enjoy the outdoors.
Protection from Rain
Have you ever been to an outdoor event where it starts to rain and, because of a lack of shade, everyone either leaves or looks for the nearest building? Pop-up canopies, including both the smaller 10×10 options and larger structures, combat this. From parties to flea markets in which you want to keep your items for sale in good condition, set up a pop-up shelter beforehand and put your table and chairs beneath.
Many canopy companies offer branded pop-up shelters, in which a logo is imprinted or silkscreened onto the cover. While this design leads to easy brand identification when everyone else has a canopy, the shelter itself allows you to keep interacting with customers, getting the word out there, and lasting through the event, no matter the weather outdoors.
Although these products are specifically called “wedding tents” and can either be bought or rented, they’re a must for outdoor weddings. Would you want your special day spoiled by rain or too much sun? Say your vows under the shade of one of these tents and not, at the first sign of rain, indoors.
