Norvell Hillside Chapel tents are the only metal frame tents that one man can erect with ease. Each piece of the frame is interchangeable and will fit any place. Frames are available in galvanized high-carbon steel tubing or heavy-wall aluminum. Optional powder-coated frames are available. All frames have cast steel fixtures which are guaranteed.

Norvell Hillside Chapel tents are all built on a hinged-construction basis. This gives many advantages no other metal frame tent offers:

#1 ¡ª Ease of erection. One man can erect a Norvell Hillside Tent anywhere he can stand or drive a stake.

#2 ¡ª More wind resistance than any other metal frame tent. The hinged construction gives them a slight play which diverts the wind when it strikes.

#3 ¡ª Easily erected over monuments and shrubs without need to assemble tent and then carry it to position.

#4 ¡ª Corner posts will swing in a three-foot circle allowing avoidance of obstacles.

#5 ¡ª Automatically levels itself. No set screws. No tools required to erect.















These Chapel tents require no stakes for erection, as they have a rigid-type frame made from our sturdy structural-steel tubing and cast-steel fixtures; however, stakes are provided for windy weather if the tent is to be left up for any length of time unprotected. Corner guy lines and stakes are also provided. Because the tent can be erected on concrete, it is perfect for use where tents are loaned for weddings and for civic and religious functions. The telescopic posts are adjustable from four to seven feet. This eliminates the most difficult part of the erection, i.e. lifting the entire top and frame from the ground to the full height of the corner posts.

There are no set screws and each unit is fastened by means of pull pins which are fastened to a chain welded to the frame so they will not get lost. Each piece of the frame is interchangeable, and the tent is easily erected by one man.

These Steril Chapel Tents are the original aluminum-frame folding-truss tents with hinged supporting poles and flexible hickory arches. Now they are available with aluminum strip arches as well as hickory. Available in 9 standard sizes, 9 hearse sizes, and two truck sizes.
