Here at Crocodile Trading we literally get thousands of calls from customers who aren't sure of the size of marquee they need and / or cannot differentiate between our range. Crocodile Trading stock three types of marquee all suitable for covering a wide range of uses and functions.

Commercial Grade Marquee:

5m x 6m Marquee

Our commercial range of PE marquees covers 18 different sizes across 4 spans (3m, 4m, 5m and 6m wide spans) meaning that we have virtually every size to cater for every event. The commercial range of marquees is our most popular product. The framework is manufactured from white powder coated steel (38mm diameter frame poles and 42mm diameter connectors) that “kwik-slot” and lock together with ease.

This marquee specification comes with white end door panels – at the width span, white windowed wall panels and a white roof canopy – all manufactured from 240g / sm Polyethylene (Polyethylene is similar to the touch to plastic). The windowed walls come in 2m sections meaning that you don’t necessarily have to have an entrance or exit at the width span as simply removing a 2m section can custom make your entrance – this is one major benefit of buying a Crocodile Trading marquee, not all manufacturers use this specification.
The panels attach to the framework by using bungee cords (included) and the roof canopy has leg covers to every leg pole and attaches using tough Velcro straps and steel hooks. All commercial marquees are easy to assemble and come with simple step-by-step instructions, fixtures and fittings to give a basic successful assembly. Heavy duty eyelets around the base of the marquee material allow additional security by pegging or securing around the perimeter which in turn minimises the effect of windy conditions. We supply this product to councils, local schools, police forces and commercial organisations nationwide as well as domestic end users. See our PE Commercial Marquee range.

The Crocodile Trading range of Industrial Grade Marquees are manufactured to the same standard as our commercial marquees but the main difference is the cover. Our commercial grade marquee material is manufactured from 240g / sm of Polyethylene (plastic to the touch) but on our industrial marquee range the material is PVC (Poly-Vinyl-Chloride). PVC in its very nature is a far more durable and heavier material, a larger lifespan and is more aesthetically pleasing.

The marquee roof canopy is manufactured from a massive 500g / sm of PVC and the windowed walls and end door panels are manufactured from 380g / sm of PVC. This marquee again comes in multiple spans and lengths and has been supplied to shopping outlets, town halls and stately homes. See ourIndustrial Marquee range.
SpeedShade Party Tent:
The SpeedShade party tent is a cheaper more lightweight alternative to the commercial and industrial ranges discussed above. Manufactured from 32mm and 25mm poles and 120g / sm Polyethylene, this marquee is to be used occasionally and not used in adverse weather conditions.
Each panel is 3m wide and can be removed to create an entrance point anywhere along the perimeter of the tent. This marquee comes in a 3m x 6m form or a 3m x 9m kit. See our Party Tent range.
We trust that this has cleared up a lot of confusion surrounding different grades and materials used to manufacture our marquees. However, if you do require any further information please Contact Us.
