Tensioning fabric
Frame tent straps that are not properly
tensioned may hold water and eventually
cause the tent to collapse. Ratchets
or spindles used for tightening fabric
should have the correct tension. Proper
tensioning of poles gives them stability as
well as keeps them from holding water. If
not tensioned properly, the poles can lift
off the ground causing the tent to fail.
Jumper lines
Jumper lines are designed for holding
the pole to the fabric should the tent
be lifted in a windstorm. If the lines are
installed improperly, they could damage
the tent or cause the tent to collapse.
When training a new employee, be
sure to stress the fact that all jumper
lines should be tied properly and tight.
The knots should be in line with the
attachment point of the jumper line.
Note: some companies tape jumper lines
to the pole on long-term installations.
In-the-know employees
While many tent and event rental companies
follow different training methods
and procedures, it is important to add the
" why " to the " how " when training employees.
Proper training will not only ensure
that methods and procedures remain
consistent throughout your organization,
but it will also produce better team players
and encourage employees to pursue
advancement within your organization.
