Straight Leg vs Slant Leg Pop-Up Canopy Frames

Choosing a pop-up canopy can be a very intimidating and time consuming process. The consumer must decide on the size, the frame type, the frame material, the canopy color, the design, the anchor options, the transportation options, and the list goes on and on. Here at Celina Tent, we went ahead and made one of these decisions for you; the choice between a slant leg frame and a straight leg frame.  

Choosing between a slant leg frame and straight leg frame may seem like it is only aesthetics, but it is much more than that. The slant leg frame, often referred to as the sporty and sleek frame, is typically less expensive than the straight leg frame so this entices customers that are budget conscious. However, the slant leg frame has less structural integrity than the straight leg frame. Due to the slant of the legs, the slant leg frame takes up more space and provides less coverage than the straight leg frame. A 10 x 10 slant leg frame usually only offers coverage of 60-64 square feet where a 10 x 10 straight leg frame provides coverage of 100 square feet. The straight leg frame is stronger, provides more coverage, and is not much more expensive than the slant leg frame.  

Here at Celina Tent, we want our customers to get a high quality product; therefore, we feel the slant leg frame does not meet our standards. In lieu of offering a lower cost option in the slant leg frame, we opted for the higher quality product so we only offer the straight leg option. Our high quality straight leg frames are available in a heavy duty aluminum extruded hexagon leg option and, for the budget conscious, a steel square leg option.  We offer these in 10x10, 10x15, and 10x20 sizes. For more information on our pop-up frames, please see and stay tuned to future blogs for a more in depth discussion on the differences between the two.
