Our in-house engineers and architect can bring your project presentation to life with WYSIWYG imagery based upon our state-of-the-art technology. What we present is exactly what you’ll get … within a millimeter.
Engineered for code 115 mph winds – even more depending on the configuration – the Saddle Span® is not just beautiful, but robust and durable. Saddle Span® stage covers may be left up permanently (but not in snow or hurricane!) or set up/taken down and moved surprisingly quickly.
Saddle Span® configured as band shell or in any of it many arrangements for massive covered space may be anchored into the ground or ballasted whenever earth anchorage is inappropriate.
One of the many features of Saddle Span® stage tents are its optional ‘ExtEnd®’ fabric closures. Install the module without end closures or “open” to allow for great views from inside. For a cool sunshade, add an ‘ExtEnd’ as a backdrop or an additional end to completely enclose the tent for multifunctional use: theater cover or festival stage tent.
Two types of optional end closures are available:
- the curved ExtEnd® with its soaring removable walls for spectacular views
- the vertical Portico with its vertical walls and options to add snap in double doors.
Both have easily removable infill rock solid tensioned walls in many options: transparent, translucent, opaque, your call. In fact, let us know what you want. The possibilities are almost limitless. The Portico wall’s solid doors facilitate back of the house “green rooms”.
Multiple Saddle Span® modules connect with Tentnology®’s patented keder joiner system for even more function space and audience cover.
Video mapping finds a friend in Saddle Span® taut tensioned membrane surface as do light shows and projection. 100% “luff” proof – Saddle Span® makes no distracting racket in wind as the membranes automatically take beautifully taut anticlastic curvaceous forms designed into them.

Saddle Span® keeps it simple and effective with 4 basic parts – base plate, apex, identical symmetric truss, all interchangeable, and fabric membrane. Saddle Span® trusses nest for efficient transport while membranes roll up into transport tough wrap bags.
Tentnology® is well acquainted with rapid deployment common in the industrial rental and entertainment industry. A structure is a pile of parts on a trailer one moment, then assembled and erected the next, often at midnight in driving rain. So, we keep it simple and safe. All assembly is done at ground level with no work aloft. Erection is the last act, and done in a matter of minutes. Take down/strike is quick and easy; typically 1/3 install time.
