Your Guide to GetTent Tents and Canopies

Confused about where to begin? Don't worry, we're here to help. At, we guide you every step of the way.

Tents vs. Canopies - Understanding the Difference

The terms "tent," "canopy," "marquee," "pavilion," and "shelter" can be used inconsistently across the industry. Here at CELINA, we define a canopy as a small, lightweight structure designed to shield you from the sun or light rain, usually without sidewalls.

On the other hand, we refer to a tent as a sturdy, temporary structure designed to withstand regular use and moderate weather conditions.

Frame Tents

Frame Tents, known for their spacious interiors and versatility, come with no center poles, giving you total freedom to arrange your space. Whether you're hosting a business event or an outdoor celebration, these tents provide ample room for your unique setup.

Here are some key advantages of Frame Tents:
  • No center poles or obstructions: This feature provides an unobstructed view and flexible layout options.
  • Can have multiple leg lengths the most popular is 7’ or 8’.
  • Can choose to have single tube kit, hybrid frame kit, or double tube kit
  • Free-standing: Frame Tents can stand without additional support, making them versatile and convenient.
  • Aesthetically pleasing: These tents add a dash of elegance to your events.
However, keep in mind that Frame Tents come with more components, and their maximum width is usually up to 40' (12 m), and length can be continued as long as you would like with the sectional frame tents.

Other Tent Options

In addition to Frame Tents and Pole Tents, GetTent offers a variety of other tent options to suit different needs and preferences.

Pop Up Canopy

Pop up canopies are the industry's easiest canopies to install and are typically available at the lowest price. These compact, pre-assembled, and lightweight canopies make them great for traveling. The Fast Shade Pop Up Canopy is a popular choice, known for its superior high-definition printing abilities to match your design. Pop up canopies are perfect for trade shows, corporate events, out-door parties, and many other indoor and outdoor events.

Cross Cable Tent

The high peak, cross cable frame tents were designed to reduce installation time and eliminate the center pole, while still offering a high peak appearance at a low price. GetTent refers to this cross cable frame tent as the Pinnacle Series Frame Tent. The Pinnacle Series Frame Tent requires less tubing, resulting in a shorter installation process. This tent is ideal for backyard events, weddings, short-term rentals, graduation parties, and more. Custom printing on a Pinnacle frame tent is highly recommended for those looking to draw a large crowd at a trade show or promote the success of their business at a corporate event.

Truss Arch Shelter

The Truss Arch Shelter is a fabric shelter constructed of arched metal beams that support the roof fabric. Also known as hoop buildings or Quonset huts, these shelters offer versatility and can be constructed using single arch or double arch designs. The truss arch shelter walls can be constructed using vertical or arched designs. Truss arch shelters are suitable for various applications, providing a durable and reliable solution for your storage or event needs.

Enhance Your Setup with Sidewalls

Sidewalls can provide additional protection and versatility to your tent.
