Marquee flooring advice

   
The following are the most popular options of marquee flooring. We supply carpet but we also pass on details of where to buy matting or solid floors.
   
flooring No flooring - leave the grass or hard surface bare
  • cheapest option (free)
  • grass can become muddy or worn
  • hard standing can become waterlogged in bad weather
  • without covering the grass with a non-breathable layer the marquee will suffer from condensation
Carpet (click here for more details)
  • a relatively cheap option
  • usually laid over polythene to stop any moisture coming through
  • held in place using 4"/6" nails
  • available in several different shades
  • limited number of uses depending on how well it is looked after, on average 2-20 times (darker colours last longer)
  • disposing can be difficult/awkward at the end of its life
Coconut matting
  • long lasting - on average lasts for 3-4 years in the (heavy-usage) marquee hire industry
  • usually laid over polythene to stop any moisture coming through
  • held in place using 4"/6" nails
  • available in 2-3 different shades
  • approximately twice the price of carpet
  • gives a rougher, thicker surface than carpet
  • disposing can be difficult/awkward at the end of its life
Solid floor
  • gives a solid feel underfoot - often carpet is laid on top to give the complete superior finish
  • raises the ground height so eliminates any risk of flooding in severe weather
  • very expensive to lay (plywood boards screwed together with batons underneath)
  • very time consuming to make
