Heating SaddleSpans

Heating a SaddleSpan is a very important part of using marquees in the colder Autumn and Winter months. We offer our clients several solutions here are some of them.

One option is to use diesel fired heaters that blow warm air under the tent into diffusers that warm up the structure.  This is very good for heating large areas however, it is harder to control the temperature in different parts of the tent.

Another option is to use a pressurised hot water system. We can use large oil fired boilers that are housed in their own 20ft container which pumps hot water into a 2″ pipe that runs around the outside of the tent and at regular intervals pipes into small diffusers located inside that then blows warm dry air into the area.  These small diffusers can be thermostatically controlled and when we used them at Bluestone  24 of the diffusers raised the internal temperature to 26 degrees C when the outside temperature was 2 degrees!   The system was supplied by Watkins Hire who worked closely with us to ensure that everything worked perfectly on the day.

Having warm dry air heating a large structure is essential when it is cold outside.  Using traditional space heaters that generate damp heat creates terrible condensation problems to the point where it can seem like it’s raining inside.  Having water dripping onto a guest speaker at a conference or the bride and groom at their wedding breakfast is really not a good thing.
