Tents for Employee Breakrooms and Social Distancing

As restaurants, bars and businesses across the country look for ways to protect employees from COVID-19, one popular option many business owners are turning to is providing their employees with expanded areas to take breaks to practice social distancing.

Many businesses – from restaurants to large box stores – typically have small breakrooms that are used by many people, leading to the spread of germs and viruses. In these cases, it’s difficult to adhere to proper social distance guidelines while employees enjoy their lunch or dinner, or take a quick break away from work.

One popular solution to this is providing a separate tent area outside the business that can serve as an employee breakroom. Clear span tents are perfect for this need. They come in all sizes depending on the business’ needs. For more information about employee breakroom tents, contact Lafayette Tents. We’ve been in business since 1913, and we are America’s most trusted tent provider.

Using Tents for Employee Breakrooms

Outdoor tents provide employees a safe alternative to their smaller breakrooms inside. The best tent to utilize for an employee breakroom to promote social distancing is Lafayette Tents’ selection of clear span structures. The versatility and durability of these tents make them our most sought-after inventory. Clear span tents are a great choice for employee breakrooms for several reasons, including:

Resistance to weather

If you are seeking a tent for use longer than a few weeks, we only recommend engineered tent structures. Our clear span structures are engineered to withstand winds of up to 60 mph and three-second gusts of up to 90 mph. This durability makes them the best option for long-term installation for a business’ employee breakroom.

These tents can come with side walls for more privacy and protection from the rain and inclement weather.

Range of sizes

We offer clear span structures in virtually any size to meet your business’ needs for an employee breakroom. We can accommodate tents as small as 1,000 square feet to well over 100,000 square feet. These tents are great for any size of business and can hold dozens or thousands of employees depending on the size of tent you select.

Top-notch engineering

Clear span structures are the most durable tent option Lafayette Tents carries. They offer a sturdy aluminum frame and unobstructed interior spaces without any interior columns. The interiors can be arranged to accommodate virtually any layout. Clear span structures are highly versatile and can be erected in almost any environment, including concrete, grass, gravel and over and around obstacles.

Customization options

Just because your employees are outside taking their breaks in a tent doesn’t mean they’ll miss any of the modern accommodations that come from being inside. Lafayette Tents’ clear span tents can come with custom lighting, signage, flooring or an HVAC solution.

I want to tell you how very pleased I was with both set-up and take-down of the tents. The installers were freindly, helpful and all around great guys. It was raining and muddy during the take-down, yet these guys were great! Thank you for all of the help.
