Frequently Asked Questions

Celebration® Tent

What is the difference between the Celebration® Economy frame and Celebration┬« Aluminum Frame?

The Celebration® Frame Tents are designed for those customers where quick installation and removal as well as ease of transportation and storage are a requirement. They feature smaller zinc-plated steel fittings and slotted pipe with a Quick-Pin connection which allows for a fast and simple erection. It is offered in either a galvanized steel frame or anodized aluminum frame. The more economic galvanized 1.5" steel frame has each pipe fold in half for easy storage and transport. The 2" anodized aluminum frame is more heavy duty (certified to IBC 90 mph 3 second exposure, and 70 mph sustained winds). The frame parts are not interchangeable; however fabric tops are between the two systems. For longer installation with the need for a stronger frame the aluminum option is the better choice.

What separates the aluminum frame Celebration® from other competing Frame Tents?

First, our Aluminum Frame Tent is fully engineered and each tent is shipped with certification (IBC 2006 90 mph 3 second exposure, 70 mph sustained). This assures you of the strength and performance you are expecting on your investment. Second, we use only structural grade components. Where other manufacturers are using aluminum tubing, we use only structural grade aluminum pipe. Where other manufacturers are offering aluminum or sand-cast fittings, we supply zinc-plated steel fittings. Third, we vinyl coated stainless steel cable wall system that looks and performs better than other rope and snap type wall systems. We offer adjustable uprights when requested at no extra charge. In addition, we do not sew through the vinyl roof and, thus, provide you a leak-proof tent. 

I am thinking of getting into the party rental business. What size frame tent should I buy?

We recommend to our customers that they purchase a Sectionalized 20' x 40'. Thus, for 8% more than the normal price of a One-Piece 20' x 40', you have the option to construct a 20' x 40', 20' x 30', or 20' x 20' - providing greater flexibility for your investment and a faster rate of return.

Do you offer color variations or custom graphics on your tents? 

Armbruster Tents come with two color options: solid color or stripped with two colors. A solid color tent can be manufactured from any of the colors swatches shown below. A two-color, stripped pattern tent can be produced using a combination of two of the colors shown. Wanting to match your company colors exactly? We can source custom colors for you - just give us a sample. In addition, please take advantage of promoting your organization or firm with custom graphics or signage. Armbruster can put your company logo or information on the side of any tent. Please contact us for more information regarding custom graphics. Please visit our contact page

EuroTent®

What are the advantages of using a 23 oz. coated vinyl fabric? 

A fabric’s weight is made up by the type and size of the polyester base fabric and the thickness of the films used to cover it. In layman’s terms, a heavier fabric is going to perform better structurally, have greater tear and abrasion qualities, as well as last longer as a result of its UV resistance. While our competitors use lighter fabrics to cut costs, we believe in using only the highest quality (often heavier) fabrics in order to provide our customers the best return on their investment by providing of longer life product.

Can EuroTents® be installed permanently?

Yes, EuroTents® are fully engineered and are often installed in a capacity where they are used seasonally or year round. The wide array of customization available with the side-curtains allow these systems to be heated or cooled. Our EuroTents® are also sold with web ratchet assemblies standard. This allows the end user to apply the necessary tension on the structure with the minimal amount of labor thus allowing it to perform better for a long-term installation as well as allowing for more simplified maintenance.

How do I connect this new tent to my facility?

With standard 10’ spacing between side poles, 10’ Celebration® walkway canopies or marquees can be connected and guttered the EuroTent® and then run to your permanent facility. This allows your EuroTent® to act as a seamless addition to your facility.

PoleTent®

What makes your PoleTent® different from other traditionally styled pole tents on the market?

Simply put, Armbruster manufactures the best pole tent on the market. This is achieved by our attention to detail, craftsmanship, and incorporating the most durable materials available. Let us list a few examples. We use vinyl coated aircraft cable for the sidewall line while the competition uses simple rope or braid. Where our competition uses powder coated pole tabs or antiquated leather pole holes, we use stainless steel pole tabs and stainless steel grommets. In addition, every PoleTent® manufactured is engineered and certification is provided for 90 mph wind rating. 

Why use a PoleTent® rather than a EuroTent®?

PoleTents® satisfy the customer’s needs or requirements for a “traditional” look while providing a considerable price savings. This price savings translates into the fastest return on your investment dollars.
