At Marlin Marquees we completely understand that this may be your first experience with a marquee and are therefore completely unsure as to which flooring you require; that is why we are here to help.
There are various options when it comes to flooring for both practicality and aesthetics.
The type of flooring that you require will be determined by the site conditions, (i.e. is there a slope, are there big dips, drainage) and also the weather. Understanding that wooden and sub frame flooring can be quite a big proportion of the hire costs, we always keep this in mind when advising clients if they require it or not. If the site is new to Marlins, then we will always ensure that we come and do a site visit prior to the event so that there are no nasty surprises for yourselves or Marlins!
Once the practicalities are determined, the next step is CARPET COLOUR. When quoting, Marlin Marquees will always start with a dark colour, such as charcoal grey – this hides stains a lot better, e.g. when the page boy comes running through with muddy feet, or your favourite uncle spills his glass of red wine; the marks won't show up. However, as you can see from the pictures below there is an incredible range of colours to choose from!
Standard Interior Carpet
Marlin Marquees use Anthracite (Charcoal) carpet as standard. This is due to it not showing any dirty marks, especially if your marquee is in a field.
Olive, shown in the photo is another suitable option available on request.
If the marquee is on hardstanding or waterlogged ground then wooden flooring is highly recommended.
Interior Carpet Colour Choices
There are a host of colours available to complement the theme of your event.
Coir matting (Coconut Matting) is a great alternative to carpet and can be used with a wooden floor.
Create a natural walkway using carpet; a range of colours is available. A great way to protect the ladies' heels.
Interlocking Wooden Floor
Contoured wooden flooring is ideal if the marquee site is not completely flat or is a bit lumpy and bumpy. If there is a large slope, the sub-frame flooring would be required.
Carpet is then laid on top of the floor.
It is highly recommended to use on hardstand sites or if the ground is considerably wet or is prone to water-logging.
Uneven or sloping ground or split levels? Fear not; do not let this put you off having a marquee, Marlins has you covered.
The sub-frame floor has also been used over swimming pools and ponds!
