5 Things to Consider When Buying a Pop-Up Canopy Tent
Pop-up canopy tents are becoming exceedingly popular marketing assets due to their versatility and convenience. Canopy tents provide elaborate and elegant advertising spaces for different occasions. They could be seen everywhere from music festivals, craft shows, farmer's markets, to social community and corporate events.

As one of the leading suppliers of premium quality instant canopy tents, Deluxe Canopy® has gained the trust of clients from different sectors in Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Mississauga and other cities within the province of Ontario, Canada. To help you choose the ideal tent based on your intended use, we put together this information that will explain important factors to consider before purchasing a new pop-up canopy tent.
1) How often will you use your printed pop-up canopy tent?
Depending on how often you intend to use your custom printed tent every year, it's important to select a suitable pop-up tent that fits within your budget. For occasional use that involves a few events each year, a basic steel or aluminum canopy tent will be adequate. For vendors and marketers who participate in trade shows and events frequently, it's recommended to use a sturdy, commercial-grade tent that won't collapse under light to moderate wind. For long-term value, it's best to invest in a high-quality tent that can withstand the elements and different terrains. Choosing a high-quality, durable pop-up tent means less hassle and minimal replacements.
2) Does your municipality require you to use fire-rated canopies?
Many cities across Canada are enforcing stringent regulations and Bylaws when it comes to setting up booths at indoor and outdoor trade shows. When registering for a show or industry expo, you will be informed about certain rules that must be adhered to. Most indoor facilities will require the material of your canopy tent to be fire-rated to Canadian fire standards. when you purchase a custom made pop up tent from Deluxe Canopy®, you are getting a canopy tent that is certified to meet or exceed the CAN/ULC-S109, NFPA-701 and CPAI-84 flame resistance standards, allowing you to use your tent both indoors and outdoors. All of our canopies are affixed with fire warning labels, which indicate that our tents are fire-rated to Canadian and International Standards for your peace-of-mind. You may also find the Fire Certificate in the Resources tab of our website.
3) What type of surface will you be using your advertising tent?
Whether you use your custom printed pop up canopy in Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Hamilton, Brampton, London, Markham, Vaughan, North York or Kitchener, you will need to be prepared for various weather conditions and terrains. The footplate of the tent is an important component to consider since larger footplates ensure stability and impact resistance. Footplates can be made of plastic, aluminum or steel however plastic is not recommended due to its weakness and its low impact resistance. We recommend ground stakes for grass surfaces and weights or sand bags for pavement and concrete.
4) What type of accessories do you require for your canopy tent?
Canopy tent accessories are essential items when setting up your trade show tent. The most common accessories that are used by vendors are wheeled bags, tent weights, stakes, rain gutters and lighting kits. Deluxe Canopy® offers a wide range of accessories that will ensure that your tent stays protected.
5) How much space did you rent?
The floor space that you are provided with at the trade show will determine the maximum canopy size that you can fit in your booth. Some vendors have the flexibility to deploy larger canopies tents such as 10x10, 10x15, 10x20 and 20x20. Other vendors will require smaller space and therefore require 5x5 or 8x8 canopies.
