BELOW: The Groove® Semi-Permanent
Outdoor Flooring from Palmer Snyder allows
crews to cover an entire tent with hardwood
fl ooring. Because it is semi-permanent, it
can remain in place for months. Shown here
is the fl ooring in the American Barnwood
option, a popular choice for weddings. Photo

gravel so Party Line Tent Rentals placed ArmourDeck®
tiles underneath to make it more level.
The dance fl oor is 16-by-12 feet with silver trim
and black carpeting underneath it. The stage
is turfed with a black skirt and is 12 inches high
utilizing Bil-Jax® lifts. Photographer: Mike Woehrle.

appealing. These factors have merged to
escalate not only the demand for tents,
but with it the need for looring.
Also pushing weddings outdoors is
that the more traditional indoor spaces
are booked solid, thanks to the COVIDrelated
pent-up rush, says Kevin Lococo,
rental market sales director for Palmer
Snyder Furniture Co. Headquartered
in Mequon, Wis., the company
manufactures and distributes dance
loors, tables, chairs and other items for
tent and event rental companies.
" Weddings drive the demand [for
looring] always. Right now customers
are looking for new and different
locations due to restrictions, so demand
is higher than ever. Brides want beauty
and elegance-often wood/barn-style
colors with a warm feel, " says Lococo,
adding that the company's barnboardstyle
patterns are its most popular
looring products.
But looring and staging are also
becoming must-haves for indoor events.
Ken Puff, president of Party Line Rentals, a
party rental store in Elmsford, N.Y. ( " We're
one-stop for most customers " ), says nearly
every social event includes a dance loor,
with some also incorporating staging.
" Bandstands or stages are a staple
when there's a band, although some DJs
are now requesting a stage, " Puff says.
" Most people just want a dance loor
and can be steered into what you have
available, while others have a theme or
plan in mind, such as an all-white or a
black-and-white checkered loor.
" Our Groove®
looring is getting quite
popular, not only as a dance loor but as
a tent loor, " he continues, mentioning he
added the dark barnwood color in 2021.
" What's nice about this type of looring
is that not only can you make it a dance
area, but the whole tent can become a
dance loor. "
" MOST FLOORS ARE
HEAVY, SO MAKE
SURE YOU HAVE
THE RIGHT DOLLIES
OR HAND TRUCK. "
