Frame tents are installed using aluminum or steel pipes to support the fabric. They offer an alternative to pole tents where opportunities for staking in the ground are limited or not possible. With interior unobstructed views, these tents are used indoors and out for booths, corporate “parking lot” events, street festivals, and smaller yards with limited room for tensioning out. Frame tents can also be used to extend porticos or walkways.
Frame tents still require anchoring (outdoor use) which can be accomplished in various ways other than staking in the ground.
