MARQUEE WEIGHT FAQ
The amount of weight needed to hold down a marquee is dependent on the size of the marquee itself, as larger marquees have a larger surface area for the wind to act upon, and so require more weight to keep them safe.
This question is one of the most commonly asked questions and unfortunately it is not one we are able to answer. Due to the many variables between structures, terrain, weather conditions etc. you will need to speak to the manufacturer of your product for their recommended ‘safe weight per leg’ calculations and take the location and forecast weather into consideration too.
Alternatively you can seek advice from a structural engineer.
