Contact us today to learn more about how we can help your business grow.

Manufacturing Tents Have Multiple Purposes

Tents for the manufacturing industry can serve several purposes, including:

  • Equipment storage
  • Temporary warehouse
  • Climate-controlled work area
  • Space for on-site meetings
  • Multi-use structures for warehouse, fabrication and personnel

Recently, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our tents have also been utilized as expanded employee breakrooms to promote social distancing. Because many factories and plants employ hundreds of workers, it’s important for employers to keep them safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our tents can easily accommodate dozens or hundreds of workers while providing them with the appropriate space to social distance to protect their health and safety.

Rapid Deployment to Your Business

When you rent a tent from us, the process is literally as easy as one, two, three. Our tent installers can deliver tents to almost any location in the United States within 72 hours.

We have a three-step process that makes deploying and setting up a tent at your location a breeze.

1. Choose A Type of Tent

When you contact us, we’ll ask you several questions to get to know your business’ specific needs. We’ll ask where you need the tent set up – on grass, gravel or concrete,  for example – and how many employees need access to it to understand what the square-footage needs are. In many cases, a single clear span structure works just fine, but if the factory or plant is large, we may suggest a combination of tent structures.

2. Develop a Site Plan

Based on the type of tent or tents  needed, our team of tent pros will assist with developing a site plan. This includes the size of the tent, shape and floor plan.

3. Mobilization and Installation

We manage each step of the process – including delivery, installation, take down and removal – to make our partnership with you a quick and easy one.

No matter where you’re located, Lafayette Tents can help. We deploy tents coast to coast throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and more.

What Type of Tents Are Best For the Manufacturing Industry

We have a 75,000-square-foot warehouse at our headquarters, and we guarantee to have a tent that fits your company’s specific needs. A couple of our best options to provide extra storage space or social distancing breakrooms for your employees include clear span and frame tents.

Clear Span Structures

Clear span structures are our most popular and sought-after inventory. They’re perfect for long-term installation because they have a sturdy aluminum frame with no poles. This leads to an unobstructed interior space that allows employees to move freely about the tent. These structures are sturdy and manufactured to withstand winds of 60 mph and gusts of up to 90 mph while keeping people, supplies and equipment protected from the rain and snow. Clear span structures can be paired with signage, flooring, custom lighting and even an HVAC solution to keep employees cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

With clear span tents, we have whatever size you might need. We offer one of the nation’s largest inventories of clear span structures, ranging from 20 to 164-feet wide.

Frame Tents

Frame tents have many of the advantages as clear span tents. They also have an unobstructed interior space (no center poles). Because the stakes are set at the base of the frame, they require a smaller footprint than pole tents, which do have interior poles. Frame tents are also great for long-term installation, can withstand inclement weather and can be paired with an HVAC option and custom lighting.

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.
