Marquee Weights and Ballast - Sometimes known as Kelley or
are placed on paved or tarmac areas, the solution required to
hold them down is to provide marquee weights (concrete "Kelley"
blocks with lifting points with brackets or straps to secure
the guy ropes). The marquee weights are available in various
standard sizes and are available depending on the size of the
marquee or configuration. For neatness the mini marquee
weights (right photo) which weigh 500kg may be the best
solution although you may need more of them, the larger 1000kg
Kelley blocks may require less and will be more suitable where
access is unrestricted. Our experts can advise on the most
economic solution for your situation.
Blocks can also be used for other situations e.g. traffic or
access control, crowd control, sea defenses or traffic diversion. The
"Kelley" blocks can be coloured or coated/covered on
request, and even be used for advertising. They can also have
pockets for flags or banners and covers to match the marquee.
