Clear Span Tent

‘Clear span’ is a term commonly used in building and bridge construction to refer to the unobstructed distance between supporting structures. Under this concept, clear-span tents, a type of clear-span construction, have become popular due to their strut-free interior design. This design not only provides more space for internal use, but also enhances the flexibility and suitability of the structure for a variety of temporary and long-term outdoor activities. Net-span tents have a wide range of applications in event planning, warehousing, exhibitions and temporary facilities due to their simple and efficient structure.

A clear span tent is a type of tent with no internal pillars or supports, and this design allows for a completely unobstructed space inside the tent. This pillar-less design not only improves space utilisation efficiency, but also provides great flexibility and freedom in setting up the event venue, making it ideal for large-scale events, exhibitions, weddings and temporary storage.

In contrast, traditional ‘pole’ tents rely on a central support pole and perimeter poles to support the top of the tent. While this design is robust, in practice, the internal space is divided by the poles, which can restrict the layout and seating arrangements of the event, and special consideration needs to be given to the positioning of the poles to avoid affecting the overall functionality and aesthetics of the venue.

Depending on the shape there are about 6 common types of clear span tents on the market as follows:
