Wind + marquee


Recommended Posts



Just 60mph winds

A structure typically rated for 50mph winds (when properly installed and stakes down) disintegrates and frankly should have been taken down since the weather alerts were well known and that type of structure can be deskinned in under an hour.


No one was injured

The big killers are the steel knuckles that hold the lengths of aluminium profile together. One small twist or leverage and the ali is scrap. The kader tears off the sheet, if the sheet isn't shredded, that floor looks destroyed and few of those wall panels or doors will be salvage worthy. It's normal practice to just weigh the metal into the nearest scrappie. Large sheets might be taken home for patching along with any undamaged floor pans and panels but that tent is a write-off.
