What is a “Clear Span” Tent?

Liri Tent offers clear span structures to meet all your semi permanent structure needs. But what exactly is a clear span tent, and what are the advantages opposed to other temporary structures?

When we say “clear span” tents we are referring to the fact that our tents are designed and built to structurally support themselves without the need of internal support poles. Our innovative clear span structures are intentionally designed to give you the maximum use of your space. You don’t need to arrange the setup of an event around support poles that will block spectator views or make it impossible to put a stage or table where you need one. 

All of the space in each of our structures is usable space, thanks to our clear span design. 

This is beneficial for everything from concerts to warehouses. If you need a warehouse structure where forklifts and other vehicles can have access to the tent, a clear span structure is ideal. Vehicles can enter and exit the structure without having to maneuver around support poles. The entirety of the structure is accessible to the necessary vehicle. 

If your Liri Tent is being used to create an exceptional sporting event facility, a clear span structure gives you the freedom to set up your event space where every seat in the house is a good one and nothing will block your spectators’ views. Your arena can also be set up for whatever sport is being played without internal support poles interfering with the performance of the athletes. With our clear span event tents, stages can be set up for concerts wherever you want them. Your festival can be designed exactly the way you imagine it. And your corporate event doesn’t need to move tables or displays around to make room for internal support poles that break up your space into inconvenient sections.

Equestrian structures can have arenas and stables designed around the horses and riders needs, not bulky support poles that hinder efficiency. 

WIth a Liri clear span tent every inch of your space is truly your own. No poles. No limitations.
