When the weight of a fully dedicated party canopy gets too much, portable canopies offer the right kind of flexibility. These tents are made from lightweight material that is still protective against the elements and much lighter to move around. They feature quick tie-downs which aid the easy assembly of the structure and are specifically designed to be perfect for last minute use.
The low weight of these items means that they can be easily transported. This cannot be said for some other, larger canopies which take up space in regular vehicles and need a trailer or flatbed to transport them. Portable canopies can be taken on camping vacations or to local events and erected in minutes for the perfect shelter from sun and rain.
These shelters can be used for parties, gatherings and carnivals but are also good for storage requirements. Sudden changes in weather might require covering up outdoor appliances and works-in-progress. These canopies are large enough to cover these suitably without taking too long to put up. They can offer protection against rainfall, wind and hail, and are also good for cars and motorbikes to protect them from weather impact.
Because of the lightweight nature of these tents, it might be a good idea to secure them in bad weather. Guide ropes can be fixed to the corners of the poles and cover and secured to the ground using metal hooks, or for more stability and security they can be fitted with earth anchors which burrow deep into the ground and use compression to withstand stronger winds. This is a good idea if the structure is going to be more permanent, but may not be necessary if the tent is only going to stay standing while the event is happening. These can be bought at the same time as the tent to save on shipping costs.
