Marquee Blocks

Marquee Blocks from Maltaward

Whether you are hosting a corporate event or a private event, security and safety is essential. Maltaward provide secure marquee blocks that can be used for a multitude of purposes to ensure the safety of your marquee.

Our Marquee blocks and Kentledge blocks are available as 500kg blocks or as 1 tonne blocks with attachment eye bolts at the top. These provide the facility for the marquees to be safely and easily secured. They are also manufactured with precast forklift slots in the base for easy lifting. Our marquee weights are versatile and can be used to secure any structure indoors or outdoors, on soft or hard ground.

 

At Maltaward, we have many years’ of experience providing high quality and reliable concrete barriers and security fencing to clients across the UK, including major airports and private sector companies such as BAA.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the best way of getting marquee blocks to a site?

    We are happy for our clients to collect their own marquee blocks from us, however, most find it easier to arrange for our team at Maltaward to deliver marquee blocks in one of our specialist trucks. Once we arrive at your site we can assist with manoeuvring the blocks safely into place or, if you would prefer, you can position them yourself.

  • How easy is it to move marquee blocks?

    Each marquee block is manufactured with precast slots for forklifts, making it simple to lift, move and lower blocks around your site. Once in position, the weight of our marquee blocks (either 500kg or 1 tonne) makes them virtually impossible to move without specialist equipment.

  • How do I secure a tent or canopy to the blocks?

    At Maltaward, the marquee blocks that we supply have an eye bolt attachment at the top, designed for your tent, canopy or marquee to be strapped into. It’s essential that you follow proper strapping techniques to ensure your canopy is securely tethered.

  • What are the benefits of using blocks over water barrels?

    Water barrels are commonly used as ballast for high-capacity marquees, with the belief that they are a cheaper, more portable alternative to heavy-duty concrete. However, it’s important to consider that generic water barrels are prone to sliding or tipping and may not be heavy enough to safely anchor a large tent in many conditions. Plus, there is the issue of accessing (and often wasting) the significant volume of water to fill them on-site.

    Marquee blocks are specifically designed for the purpose of securing large outdoor tents. Their shape and weight make them extremely reliable and sturdy. Plus, with the expertise of our team, you can have complete confidence that your marquee will remain secure on all surfaces, even in bad weather.

  • How many blocks will I need for my marquee?

    The appropriate number of blocks will depend on the size of your marquee and, to some extent, the weather conditions at the time of your event. Underestimating the amount of ballast needed to keep your tent secure can quickly turn into a safety hazard, so it’s essential that you order the correct number of blocks.

    Contact us to discuss your plans with an experienced member of our team and we will be able to calculate the most effective number and positioning of marquee blocks to keep your guests safe.

  • Can I purchase marquee blocks or only rent them?

    Maltaward customers are welcome to purchase marquee blocks or rent them, depending on what is most convenient to them. If you aren’t sure about the most cost-effective option for your requirements, we would be happy to discuss your event plans and provide a free quote so you can compare the cost of renting and purchasing the marquee blocks you require.

Just a few lines to express my gratitude to your security staff

Just a few lines to express my gratitude to your security staff (and dog) for their actions last night in dealing with our trespassers at Mill View Hospital. I am impressed with his handling of the matter which came across as confident and decisive. The information he gained has been passed onto Police who now have an active line of enquiry.

I was just looking out over my back garden over the weekend and seeing what a good job that had been done and wondering who best to contact, so pleased that you e mailed.

We saw the guys work very hard clearing all of the rubbish (and shovelling what need to be shovelled!!) I would like to thank them and yourselves for sorting this issue.

The site appears to be well protected and the fence fixed.

I wanted to say a massive thank you to you both in assisting with today’s ILRS set up at Enfield. Your behind the scene’s efforts were second only to Paul’s outstanding performance on site. He is quite simply a huge compliment to your firm; his attitude towards the task required and his tolerance, patience and enthusiasm, mixed with his natural character were nothing short of exemplorary and I would like to formally mark his efforts with a gift to say thank you.

Have a good evening both.

very good feedback from the site…

Good to speak to you, may I also take the opportunity to thank you for sorting out the handler and dogs, I have had very good feedback from the site about the security guard who has been great.

No job was ever too small for you!

I just wanted to drop a note to say it has been a real pleasure working with you over the years.

Thank you for all your help and support over the years which has made what can be a very difficult and demanding job much easier.    No job was ever too small for you.  I have really enjoyed working with you.

Andrew – Airport: Safety critical call out

Well done last night team.  I’ve had positive feedback over the response to this, which was a major issue to our client.  Thanks to everyone for all the juggling last minute to fit this in, and the safe working was undertaken to get this fan out. I’ll be back in touch soon.

Maltaward who deserve highlighting for being so responsive

I wanted you all to see this circulation today, as all of you made a significant contribution last week to the issues related to the encampments at Broad Street & Rydes Hill, Guildford. To be successful required working as a team (particularly as I work part time) and we probably all felt the pressure created by the circumstances. Our contractors Maltaward who deserve highlighting for being so responsive (out of normal hours) and doing a great job, cheers

we would not hesitate in using your services again in the future

The temporary barriers were gone on arrival at 08.00am this morning thanks

Thanks also, to you and your team for all your help in removing unwanted visitors and securing the premises in a timely and professional manner

Hopefully there will be no need, but we would not hesitate in using your services again in the future

Julian

I’ve happily provided feedback. Your office and Paul (driver) have all been superb. Really appreciate the great service from the combined team.

Anonymous – I have added you to the top of my list of go-to contractors

Just a short note to say how grateful and impressed I was with your company’s service. You were able to supply me with the fencing I needed within an hour or two of the initial phone call late on a Saturday afternoon. My Customer and their neighbours were equally impressed with how your staff were really helpful, professional and polite, throughout the installation. They were even more happy when you turned up the next day just to check that everything was OK. I have added you to the top of my list of go-to contractors, thank you.
