-- South Bend, IN --- Aay’s Rental announced this week that they have commissioned the manufacture of one of the largest, complete venue, rental tents in the country. Currently being built by Losberger, a company with nearly one hundred years of quality tent production, at their special facility in Germany, Aay’s expects completion of the giant tent sometime in August.
“The beauty of this tent is its adaptability and flexibility to be customized in any number of sizes and broken up into a variety of smaller configurations,”
explained Mike Sharpe, co-owner of Aay’s and manager of the party rental side, “we can completely outfit everything from a modest sized venue up to the entire 15,000 square feet with flooring, lighting, heating or air conditioning. The flexibility and options available are incredible.”
The tent itself will measure 15 meters x 90 meters, (15,000 sq. feet) with a capacity of up to 1500 people depending on the configuration.
To try to visualize the size involved, picture the width of an Olympic sized swimming pool and the length of a football field. To completely set up the full configuration will take 15-20 people up to 5 days to assemble. The tent can be constructed with wooden floors, glass doors and walls or open sided for patio space and can be set up to specifications to withstand up to 90 mile an hour wind speeds.
The world of tents has expanded greatly from the days of a canopy in the backyard. Modular components, vaulted ceilings, metal support structures and wooden floors are all commonplace in today’s tents. Large sized tents are used from Olympics venues and golf tournaments to providing mobile hospitals and shelter in disaster relief.
The only other tent of similar size in Indiana is at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and is privately owned. Aay’s Rent-All has been offering rental services to South Bend and surrounding communities for over forty years and is proud to be able to offer this kind of state-of-the-
art venue to its customers. From complete party rental services to tool and equipment rental, Aay’s is always at your service.
