A tent is a must-have rental item for any outdoor gathering. In addition to providing shelter from inclement weather, it's also valuable for giving your guests some shade. When you're speaking to a local party rentals service to address your tent needs, you should also strongly consider renting a floor to go beneath the tent. While many people know the value of renting dance floors for outdoor weddings and other parties, you might not think about getting a floor if dancing isn't on the agenda. However, there are several reasons that you'll appreciate having this solid foundation beneath your feet.
Better for Those with Mobility Issues
There may be some people who attend your event who have mobility issues. Although these individuals may be able to get around with the help of medical devices such as wheelchairs and walkers, navigating outdoor terrain with either device can be a challenge. The last thing that you want is for a few of your guests to be unable to get around the event because their wheelchair or walker gets stuck. When you rent a floor for beneath your tent, you'll have the confidence that anyone with a mobility issue will be able to move with ease.
Higher Degree of Stability
Even though you'll likely get your tent set up where the ground is relatively flat, small ruts and bumps can potentially cause problems. For example, if you have a series of bistro tables set up on the grass, some of them may be leaning at a bit of an angle. This could potentially cause someone's drink or food to slide off the table onto the ground. In worse scenarios, an entire table could tip after someone leans on it. When you have a floor beneath your tent, you won't have to worry about such problems.
Better in Poor Weather
If it rains hard during your event, the tent will keep people dry. However, you'll often find that water can flow onto the ground beneath your tent and those who are walking in and out of the tent can track water in on their wet shoes. Over the course of the event, this can make the ground beneath your tent — even though it's out of the direct rain — wet and muddy. This is the last thing that you want, especially when people are wearing formal attire. A floor is elevated off the ground enough that water won't be an issue.
