Flex 42 Event Tent
The Flex 42 Event Tent measures 6,5 x 6,5m (21'3 x 21'3) and is 42m² (452ft²). The Flex 42 is our smallest square stretch tent. It's ideal for festivals, yards, patios or decks, while offering slightly more space than the Flex 32. Handmade in Belgium from our durable synthetic laminate, our Flex Tents are designed for long-term exposure and humid environments. The Flex 42 can be installed over pools and attaches easily to existing structures using our modular clamp system. The location of each clamp is decided by the user allowing you limitless configurations. When used as a party tent, you can use our accessory pole set or make you own poles from materials such as bamboo or pine to acheive the desired aesthetic effect.
Note: Flex tents take 1 to 3 weeks to produce and deliver. Order well ahead of time.

Flex tents, also known as stretch tents, freeform tents, or stretch marquees; are the most versatile party tents on the market for creating unique, stylish, and performance shelter. Think of the Flex tent as a giant high-performance blanket fort for adults. Flex tents are one large stretchy membrane that can be pushed up in a range of different shapes and heights with modular poles.
Flex tents are available in an endless variety of shapes and colors. They’re waterproof, wind resistant, and fire retardant. Custom colors and sizes available upon request.
Our Flex Tents utilize the latest in zero-memory synthetic waterproof fabrics. At the core of this synthetic laminate is an incredibly strong 4-way polyamide knit which allows the material to stretch without developing “memory”. Once pressure is removed from the fabric it slowly returns to its original shape, eliminating fabric distortions after multiple uses. A polyurethane (PU) coating is applied to the laminate, adding additional waterproofing, as well as UV and flame resistance. For light-duty applications, we offer Flex tents with only one side coated in PU. For heavy duty or long-term applications, we also offer double-coated material.
Every Flex Tent ships with a complete clamp kit and all the necessary hardware. Each clamp holds the edge of the fabric firmly by squeezing an elastic cord which is permanently welded into the edge of the tent. The clamps can be moved to any location along the edge of the tent, providing for easy set up and customization and providing you with limitless anchor points. Each tent also ships with a complete rope and stake set for the clamp kit, allowing you to pitch it in it's default configuration with all four sides raised, but we encourage you to let your imagination run. Flex Tents can be attached to buildings, set up on the beach, over pools, on rooftops, patios or in your own back yard in endless different configurations.
Every Flex tent includes two pole adaptor sets; one for the accessory metal poles sold by canvas camp, and a second set to adapt wooden poles source you source yourself. Also included is a complete set of pole bases so you can anchor your poles in place on hard surfaces or protect a wood deck.
While our accessory pole kits offer exceptional portability, we find that most customers prefer the aesthetics of wood or bamboo. Aside from the look and feel of furniture grade wooden poles, there is also a significant cost savings in using locally sourced wooden poles. Most post and pole supply companies that cater to farm fencing will cut beautiful wooden poles to your specifications for very attractive prices. Sometimes even cheaper than the accessory pole set we sell.
When using metal poles: All interior pole ends need to be capped with our dome-shaped pole tops to prevent damage to the fabric. Pole diameter cannot exceed 3” so that the pole top can slide over the pole. Clamp hardware must be assembled with the metal pole adaptors. The plastic pole adaptors slip inside the metal pole ends for the perimeter poles.
When using wood/bamboo poles: All interior pole ends need to be capped with our dome-shaped pole tops to prevent damage to the fabric. Pole-top adaptors must be screwed into the end of each wooden pole (wood screws not included) for the pole tops to sit on. Clamps should be assembled without the metal pole adaptors, exposing the bolt which holds the clamp together. Perimeter poles must be drilled out (1/2”) for the bolt to slip in.
