Installing Tents on Concrete or Over a Pad
Some of Ohenry Tent customers have purchased party tents to be installed for long term use as pavilions or other event tents. They have built concrete pads, and even wooden floors for these tent installations. If you have a need to do this, please study the pictures and information on this page carefully to insure a successful installation!
2018_misc_picture_files/pics_for_pole_tent_on_concrete/with border/40x60 pole tent walls.JP Notice how the concrete slab is LARGER than the tent. It SHOULD have been SMALLER than the tent. Making slab SMALLER than tent is done for drainage, and will be explained in detail further down the page.
This the same tent as above. Because the slab is larger than the tent, when it rains, the water will run off the tent, then back under the tent.
2018_misc_picture_files/pics_for_pole_tent_on_concrete/with border/greenwhite 30x50.jpg This tent was installed over a custom built wood floor and the floor is smaller than the tent, so the run-off from the rain should not run back up under the tent. The floor was sized correctly.
Same tent as above.

Things to remember...

  • Slab should be shorter and narrower than actual tent measurements so water will drain onto the ground, and not the slab. If the water drains onto the slab, it will return back into the tent. Normally, the slab should be 2' narrower and 2-3' shorter than the tent. Contact our staff for recommendations on slab size.
  • Wooden floors should be sized the same as concrete slabs.
  • A tent is NOT a building, and some water usually ends up inside the tent because of ground slope, lace line dripping or wind blown rain.
