It’s true that DIY Marquees has the largest range of marquees for sale, which is ideal as there is a product for everyone. Visiting the website, you will notice the interactive marquee planner tool, which helps you experiment with the different size marquee. With this too you can test what will fit into the area that you have to work with as well as how you can make simple additions to the plan, to increase the size, join more than 1 party tent, or marquee and which accessories are available. The interactive planner is the first page to visit when you are choosing what type of marquee to buy.

4x4m peaked commercial diy marquee

When it comes to the type of marquee would be most suitable, it is good to understand the difference in type of marquee and the materials used. Our 4m marquees range come in 2 different types: party tents and marquees. The term party tent is used around the world to describe a marquee, which is better suited for personal or private use. The material used for the party tent is made from a lighter weight material, typically PE (Polyethylene), a tarpaulin like material that comes in 80 to 240 grams per square meter, (the thicker the material the hardier and heavier it is) , or poly/PVC which consists of PVC however coated on just 1 side of the material and is a good alternative to the more expensive PVC marquees. PE for a party tent is perfect as it’s more economic than a heavy-duty marquee, which are really, only meant for use for commercial purposes. PE is 100% waterproof and its significantly lighter weigh means that it is quicker to erect (see our 4 x 4m pop-up gazebo marquee) making this type of marquee ideal for garden parties, as temporary structures and extensions that you can add to an existing structure.

4x4m premium diy marquee

DIY Marquees has seven types of 4 x 4m products in this range, 3 of which are suitable for the private user. For those who are interested in investing in a marquee with extra strength and durability, in the same range of 4 x 4m marquees are commercial and professional options made from PVC instead of PE, which means the integrity of the material, offers more strength for frequent use. The 4 x 4 commercial marquee is also available with a peaked-shaped roof that adds some flare to your standard commercial marquee. Both of these styles are however made with 500gsm PVC and come with a galvanized steel framework made from 42mm thick steel. This is an excellent 3 / 4 season option for any commercial user. (Do not forget to add some cross bracing for extreme weather!)

IBS chooses only the best products for your business

HomeLooking to significantly improve the pneumatic conveying systems for your business? IBS Industrial Blower Systems can offer you solutions that improve overall efficiency and reduces wear and tear on your equipment. What makes IBS such a success as a business, is the depth and understanding that their engineers have of the countless applications, functions and solutions provided by the products that they sell, service, repair, recondition for basically any production, manufacturing or industrial environment imaginable. At the end of the day, it comes down to excellent service, reliable products and a blend of customer service and practical application at competitive prices and being physically able to provide all of this, all the time.

While best known for being suppliers of vacuum pumps, blowers and similar equipment such as compressors, those use in the road tanker industry, or rotary valves most commonly in the food industry, IBS has extended their range to include dense conveying equipment and systems to accommodate the needs of industries such as milling, environmental, chemical and building industries. It is fair to say that while the application of dilute phase systems, widely accepted as being more economical and simpler in application, is a limited application when compared to dense phase systems. Where there is a requirement to move a denser product or concentration of fragile, abrasive or friable materials, the dense phase pneumatic system, such as the Gvf impianti range available from IBS, is undoubtedly more efficient. The ability to move bulk product, while preserving the integrity of the product, at low velocity with high pressure, results in higher industrial efficiency, with less wear and tear on the system, reducing the cost of system maintenance.

Speak to IBS process engineers who can perform a full survey, complete with reports and plans which will provide you with a full choice of relevant and practical options which will assist you in designing the best system, relevant to your business’s needs.

Over the last decade, the use of dense conveyancing systems and industrial mixing equipment has seen a sharp rise in utilisation in the fast paced FMCG environment, especially due to developments made in this industry resulting from the sharp rise in demand for packaged and pre-prepared goods. In a world that is itself, fast moving, keeping up with consumer demand requires innovation, effectiveness and efficiency. Well-known manufacturers of industrial mixing equipment, Mix srl and Olocco company, consistently meet industry’s demand for products which can sustain the high volumes of materials, with high quality equipment which does not suffer easily from wear and tear.

IBS has been supporting industry by providing them with reliable new and reconditioned equipment that is the bedrock of the reputation that has sustained IBS over many decades. Variety and application, versatility and consistency are what one comes to expect from IBS, sustained by engineering expertise that combines to create a powerful blend that can be relied upon, not only for new systems but also for the maintenance of existing systems.

Dukes of Daisy is a strictly non-sexual rent a friend site

It’s fascinating to look back over the last 60 years and see how far the human race has come with the support of information technology. During the timeframe of less than 1 generation, we have moved from the invention of the first supercomputer, in the 1960s, to the 1970’s when the size of computers decreased and the functionality began to significantly gain traction, as computers were already beginning to network and communicate with each other. Into the 1980’s we began to see computers becoming more accessible to small businesses and even some domestic computers through to the 90’s where it became quite a lot more affordable for a lot of households, in the first world particularly, to have a computer with an external modem in the home, with which people were able to communicate via software to other computers on all sides of the world.

As we think back, those of us who lived through this incredibly rapid period of growth can almost hardly remember when and how exactly we came across our first social media platform. For some it was Facebook in the latter part of 1990’s. For others it was YouTube and Twitter in the early part of the 00’ies. However, whenever it was for you, no doubt, like many others across this globalised world, information technology and its social media platforms have become an enormous part of your everyday life. Now days you can shop for clothes and household items without leaving your kitchen counter, plan a holiday route from the comfort of your couch, research just about any topic you can think of … and probably some that you would never dream of… all without leaving your chair!

So, we say to you … Need a date? Are you perhaps looking for a non-sexual companion or female escorts UK? Well look no further than Dukes of Daisy’s wildly popular companion website, which delivers more opportunities than you ever thought possible, in terms of rent-a-friend companions.

Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors Shepherds Bush

Our family had no idea what we were about to face when our family was struck down by corona virus in May of 2020. Living with my elderly mother and father-in-law was intended to keep them financially stable and safe in their latter years and it was a choice our family made, to ensure that we would always be just a door-knock away when every they needed us for the small things or the big things. One of those big things happened to our family at the end of April as the country locked down to protect each other from… well… each other. Since my mother and father in law were of the vulnerable age to the deadly virus, we endeavoured to take every precaution to ensure that they were isolated and that all exposure opportunities were limited. Like many other families around the UK, it became priority to ensure that there was as little risk to the family as we could physically mitigate.

Lodge

As it so happened, with a number of additional underlying comorbidities, my mother-in-law began to display some of the symptoms including fever, dry cough and severe headaches and was subsequently collected on the May Day bank holiday 2020 and taken via ambulance to New Victoria Hospital. After testing positive, the hospital placed her in high care on a respirator and we waited with heavy hearts for 3 days as she used all of her energy to fight off the virus. Finally, in the early hours of Tuesday 5 May, she lost her fight and passed away leaving my father-in-law and her two grown son’s and their families, reeling with disbelief and immeasurable sadness that this virus is so destructive. From there everything became a bit of a blur and we immediately started looking for funeral directors to assist us with the preparation of the funeral. Just a few minutes’ drive from the hospital we found the Funeral Directors New Malden branch of Lodge Brothers funeral directors who responded immediately, despite us contacting them in the exceedingly early hours of the business day, to our every need.

Lodge Brothers Branch

When we arrived at the Lodge Brothers office later that day, the staff were extremely compassionate and prioritised our needs, from the minute we walked in. Their professionalism and compassion made us feel like we were the only family in the whole world, who was going through the passing of a loved one. All plans came together seamlessly as Kerry listened carefully to all our requests calmly and with 100% attention to detail which we so appreciated as everything was all so very overwhelming to process and decision-making was particularly difficult. Lodge Brothers staff went over and above to get us through the difficult time, which was especially helpful for my father-in-law whose whole life had changed in an instance. We thank Lodge Brothers Funerals and while we don’t look forward to it, we will trust you to help our family when we need to, in the future.

Lodge Brothers Funeral directors Ascot, Lodge Brothers Funeral directors Hillingdon are there for you family in time of grief!

Lodge Brothers Legal Services free No Obligation Quote

It may surprise the majority of people, that having a Will in place for when you pass on, is only the start of a series of rather complex legal events which needs to be finalised after a funeral takes place. For the most part, people feel prepared for all eventualities once the Will has been drawn up but in reality there is more that one needs to take into account other than just the allocation of your possessions as part of your last wishes.  To complicate matters more, no more than 30% of UK citizens actually have prepared their Will. This can lead to the possibility that the majority of families who experience the passing of a loved one, will end up have much more on their plate than they originally anticipated. Dealing with grief and loss is one of the most distressing experience a person could have. Add to that, the multitude of decisions and choices which need to be made once a person has passed, and its almost certainly too much to bear.

Lodge Legal Signing Documents

Lodge Brothers Probate Guildford attorneys are able to assist families with issues of this kind, which arise, in situations where a person has failed to prepare. And just as one might think that drawing up a Will is something that they need professional help with, so too is the process of probate which is the next of the complex details that families are faced with.

Should a person pass away before they have had the opportunity to prepare their Will, their estate is automatically placed “intestate” meaning that the courts become responsible for assessing who is officially your next of kin and allocate your possessions accordingly. What this can mean is that your possessions are not allocated in the way in which you would have preferred them to be allocated. For example, a person who is on their second marriage to a person on their first marriage, may have children from that first marriage. The husband or wife of the second marriage may be deemed as your next in line heir, however you may wish for your children to received all of your inheritance and for nothing to be left to your second spouse. For whatever reasons you deem to be necessary, you have the right to do as you wish with your estate. If you should die without a Will in place, the courts may find that your second spouse receives everything. Nothing may be wrong with this at face value, however what if your second spouse re-marries and then all of your possessions go to the new spouse, by-passing your children entirely. Not through malice but rather through a series of events, your children may be left without financial security as a result.

The importance of reaching out Lodge Brothers Probate Ashford professionals to assist you with such decisions, which can have far-reaching effects on your family’s future, can never, be over-emphasised. Provide for your loved ones in the way that you wish and chose Lodge Brothers Legal attorneys to administer your estate.
