METRO RENTAL F.A.Q.'s

What is the difference between a Frame Tent and a Pole Tent?


A Frame Tent is a metal framed structure that supports the whole tent top and can fit into tighter areas, and can also be put up next to other frame tents because the ropes only come out a short distance. These ropes are only for holding the tent down.

A Pole Tent has tall poles holding up the center of the tent and should be figured into your floor plan. This tent also needs more room for ropes that come off the sides of the tent - at least 8 feet all the way around the tent. These ropes not only hold the tent down, they also hold the tent up.
