Internal frames made using angle kids.
If your organization allows modern internal steel frames the most economical method is purchasing angle kits and making your own frame from steel 1 inch inside diameter conduit available at all hardware store. View Angle Kits here.

FIRE RESISTANT CANVAS: Meets CPAI 84 fire retardant code. If a tent is not specifically treated for fire resistance it will burn quickly. Fire Resistant canvas will only burn when there is a flame source present on the canvas. When you remove the flame source the wall tent will stop burning. However, there is no wall tent made that will not burn.
