Celina Tent's Disposable Pole Covers are are constructed using durable 4 mil poly plastic. Covers are slid onto tent poles and tubing to create an elegant, more attractive look. They are flame retardant. This product can also be used as hose covers, ratchet assembly covers, and as a caution indicator in more hazardous areas. Celina Tent recommends that that you cut the pole cover 1.5 times the desired length and ''scrunch'' it around the pole/tubing. For example, a 7' pole would require a 10.5' long section of cover.
