Impacts of Inclement Weather on a Tent
Rain: Rainwater can collect inside the tent gutter kits and cause ‘ponding’ or ‘water pocketing’ under severe bad weather conditions, (unless it is drained regularly). In addition, highly saturated soil will cause the stakes to lose their holding power. Losing tension from the stakes will cause poles to become unstable, thereby making the structure hazardous in high winds. If the weather turns for the worse in your area after we have erected the tents or disco dome, you must contact us immediately.
Wind: Wind or wind with rain can cause the tension of the tent to change by loosening ratchet assemblies, pulling stakes, or causing the poles to shift or sink. It is very important to do routine checks and contact us if you have noticed any storm strap or ground pegs becoming loose from excessive rainfall or high winds.
Lightning: Immediately evacuate the tent until the chance of a lightning strike is no longer present.
Snow: Tents, canopies, structures, and shelters are not designed to carry any type of snow loading. These products should not be used if snow of any kind is present or expected, and must be evacuated immediately in the event of snow loading.
• For health and safety reasons we do not set up in severe weather conditions such as high winds, storm weather warnings or heavy landing snow.
• Please bear in mind, consideration will be needed in sub-zero conditions as to whether a marquee can be erected and/or dismantled.
• If there is an unforeseeable cancellation due to bad weather, you will be contacted and then refunded the full amount of the deposit paid.
