Your dream day is approaching, and your heart is set on getting married at a specific location that’s very special to you. There’s just one problem: Your dream spot for getting married is on a sloped hill. Chattanooga Tent offers a solution that can, in most cases, accommodate your wishes while also keeping your guests safe. We call it the Chattanooga Tent Custom Venue Builder.
Ramsey Reynolds, one of our Chattanooga Tent & Event Solutions Event Specialists, said there are four different types of products we use to create Chattanooga portable event flooring.
If you are worried about the terrain of your event space, Strata Floor™ may be the best option. “It is the perfect choice when you desire a level floor installed over sloping or undulating surfaces,” Ramsey said. “It is ideal for staging an outdoor event or extending an indoor stage. It can be used virtually anywhere from a theater to a flat parking lot, to a hill side or event over a pool! Chattanooga Tent will often use indoor/outdoor carpet to finish the look, but we can also use wooden planks or vinyl depending on the desired outcome.”
Dura-Trac™ is a HDPE (High-density polyethylene) modular, plastic subfloor flooring system specifically designed for quick installation in stadiums, tents and special event venues. It is also perfect for all types of events from music festivals, concerts, commencement and graduation ceremonies, to monster truck and motocross races, exhibitions and tradeshows, corporate and private events, specialty sporting events (UFC, Boxing, Hockey, etc.). Each panel is 4' x 4'x 2 3/4" thick, weighing about 50 lbs. The flooring is made from 50% recyclable material. “The Dura-Trac™ subfloor flooring system will follow the lay of the land,” Ramsey said. “This patented slide-lock flooring system is self-aligning and allows for other panels to fit together seamlessly. There are no hinges to break or pieces to be inserted, just slide and lock. We commonly pair Dura-Trac™ with an indoor/outdoor floor covering to complete the look, but other floor coverings are also available. The crated design helps to minimize damage to grass when laid directly on the surface. No matter what the size of the event Dura-Trac™ flooring is designed to help protect your site from damage while keeping your guests safe and secure.”
This laydown event flooring option works similarly to Dura-Trac™. “Only instead of being a plastic laydown floor, we use 4" x 6" or 2" x 6"s as the base and screw plywood on top of that. We then cover that with an indoor/outdoor turf or wood plank floor. Like Dura-Trac™, a plywood floor will follow the lay of the land, which means that any slope or dip could be noticeable,” Ramsey said.
The TF-2100™ tent floor panel manufactured by Biljax is designed specifically for elevated tent floors. “This floor is designed to integrate with the structure, which allows ground anchoring to be completely beneath the floor. It can be installed on all different types of terrain,” Ramsey explained. Jacks can be adjusted vertically to accommodate stage heights ranging from 37-inches to 148-inches. Guardrails and handrails come with the system, as do stairways and ramps.
You can preview the types of flooring available to rent from Chattanooga Tent & Event Solutions. These include Weathered Oak, Dark Oak, Wood Plank, Black and White, White, Black, and White Concentric.
During the pre-event consultation, we help you to calculate how much portable event flooring will be needed. Generally, a seated dinner with 5-foot round tables requires 15-square-feet per person. A dance area will take up at least 5-square-feet per person. Don’t forget to allow room for a bar area, speakers platform, and bandstand, if any. We utilize CAD renderings and 3D event drawings to help you visualize the final outcome to ensure your vision is faithfully translated into the reality of your event.
