What Our Customers Say about Us

‘BARKERS Marquees come up with whatever we need (iron stakes to Marquees) quickly. They never fail to come up with the goods! ‘ LPM Bohemia
We were the first UK Manufacturer to pass UK and European windloading standards with our Pole Marquees. This means that they are designed to withstand wind speeds of up to 36m/s (or 80mph) – which is the same as Clear Span Frame Marquees.We use high strength webbing at all tension points to improve performance and increase the life of the MarqueeOur pole eyelets are stainless steel – not brass – as they can be holding up to 6 thicknesses of fabric. They are designed to avoid damage and tearing.Fabric Specification
Our Pole Marquees are available in natural materials such as Polycotton or Canvas, or man made fabrics such as PVC. All fabrics are Fire Retardant, UV stabilised & anti-fungal. Polycotton is stronger and lighter than canvas.No Leaks
Our Polycotton and Canvas Pole Marquees do not leak! This is because we sew the seams using a ‘Double French Seaming’ technique, anti-wick thread and small needle size which in turn makes smaller holes. All this minimises leakages. It may take longer to sew, but we believe it is worth it! Clients need to condition fabrics prior to usage, see Canvas Care instructions for more details. Poles, Pegs, Ropes & Dollies
