Aztec sets sail with new 59’ Tidewater Tent design

May 18, 2011

What started four years ago as a handful of requests for a new sailcloth tent design from rental companies along the New England seaboard, has turned into a national trend. As the Tidewater Series continues to gain popularity across the nation, the number of Tidewater Series products is also expanding. The original design in Aztec’s Tidewater Pole Tent Series included 20’, 32’ and 44’ widths, followed by a 51’ version of the pole tent last year. 2010 also included the advent of the Tidewater Frame System which includes 10 x 10 and 20 x 20 square models as well as 20’, 30’, 40’ and 50’ hex-ended configurations. There are also a number of Tidewater accessories including marquee connectors and rain gutters.

This April, Aztec Tents unveiled its greatest triumph in this product line to date; the 59’ wide Tidewater Series Twin Pole. Driven by an increasing number of requests for larger events under the Tidewater Series of tents, Aztec’s design and production teams, working with input from Tidewater rental dealers, manufactured a 59 x 111 twin pole tent. The 59’ Tidewater features all of the striking characteristics of the smaller versions: king and queen center pole design, star reinforcement points at all pole locations, rounded ends, clean lines and elegant seam construction, highly translucent and light permeable fabric, catenary eave line, strong welded seams and one-piece construction. It is currently offered in four sizes including: 59 x 79, 59 x 99, 59 x 119 and 59 x 139. “The evolving trends throughout the marketplace continue to drive Aztec’s design team, and the 59’ Twin Pole Tidewater proves that”, says Andrew Chase of Chase Canopy, Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. Chase is one of the Tidewater Dealers that was instrumental in the new design process.

With the 59’ Tidewater Twin Pole already in production, tent rental companies now have the ability to cover as much as 7700 square feet of event space with a Tidewater Sailcloth Tent, “and that”, says Chase, “covers a lot of tables and chairs”.
