With over 15 years experience within the industry and with thousands of pop-up instant shelters/marquees/party tents sold by us every year we are very confident in saying that we are one of the biggest specialists for instant pop-up shelters, marquees, party/event tents and other related products in the UK. With over 3,000 square feet of storage space fitted throughout with high-bay racking, REDX International Ltd has the largest stock of mini marquees, instant pop up shelters, party/event tents and accessories in Europe. This means any order placed before 3pm is received by the customer on the next working day. All our deliveries to UK mainland addresses are free of charge.

We specialize in the design, manufacture and import of our range of instant pop up shelters, marquees, party/event tents and a wide variety of accessories. Over the last 15 years we have gained a true understanding of our customers needs whether they are sole traders, market operators, local councils, charities, multi-nationals and of course the motorsport scene for which we are probably the leading UK supplier.

We developed a full range of instant shelters from the long successful 'Swiftshade' units to our new XTR7 Extreme Performance pop up shelter, which is without doubt the best value industrial unit on the market.

We have grown to become one of the biggest suppliers of mini marquees, instant pop up shelters and party/event tents to the home UK market and are now successfully expanding our business on the continent, at present to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden and Holland. As this is still an expanding part of the company we welcome any enquiries from potential trading partners.

Our first website went live in 2000 and having overseen a steady rise in product lines and volume of goods shipped to trade customers, a new, bigger and more powerful website was designed to cater for increased demand from customers wishing to buy on-line. This website was launched in early 2007 to assist and help those customers who prefer to buy on-line.

Our aim is to offer an honest and reliable service to all our customers, both old and new, with quality long term after sales care. We also welcome any suggestions to make your shopping with us as enjoyable as possible.


Something from history...

Mini marquees or instant pop up shelters represent the major part of our portfolio and we are constantly trying to improve our ranges to ensure maximum quality, ease of use and long term durability.

The design based on concertina sections has been known for almost 50 years and originated in the USA. They became successful almost overnight and soon names like instant shelter, pop up shelter (or just „pop up"), easy up and many others were commonly used and nowadays you could hardly find anyone who does not understand their meaning. This is because they were invented as an alternative to all different kinds of shelters and awnings that were both difficult and time consuming to erect. The popularity of instant pop up shelters has steadily grown and even today people still find more and more uses for them.

The latest one being related to the smoking ban in the UK and many other countries. Many landlords, various event organisers and public area managers are all of a sudden facing a problem of accomodating those of us that want to enjoy a cigarette. A permanent structure is not always the best solution and in many cases totally out of question due to building regulations. One of the advantages of all pop up instant shelters/mini marquees is that being classified as temporary structure they do not require planning consent. Therefore they are very often used as an ideal smoking shelter. But this is just one of many examples of their use as they are frequently utilised by councils for street markets, exhibitions organisers, motorsport teams in the pits, scouts, armed forces and for countless leisure events...

Distribution and production of pop up instant shelters/mini marquees in the UK started in the 1980s when several companies realised their importance and business potential. Today the instant pop up shelter/mini marquee turnover in the whole UK is worth around 50 million GBP. And we are proud to be one of the leading suppliers and our share in this market is still growing as we offer an unrivalled variety of sizes and colours in several different quality ranges. Our goal has always been to supply the best value for money shelters/marquees and our success has been built by developing one range of instant shelters purely for leisure use named as Heavy Duty Instant Shelters, another range for occasional professional use called Commercial Instant Shelters and last but not least our range of professional marquees called XTR7 Extreme Performance Instant Shelters.

The XTR7 Extreme Performance Instant Shelter range took us several years to develop and its design is based on our longterm research of the pop up shelters market and feedback from thousands of our customers. This range offers a unique blend of many qualities. We managed to combine its unprecedented strength with more than reasonable portability. This was achieved by using the highest quality aluminium and opting for hexagon profile. Where you normally would find rivets and plastic joints on similar products these we replaced with nuts and bolts and cast alloy joints respectivelly. We are very confident to say that it is one of the strongest instant shelter frames on the market. Accompanied by 550g canopy this is the ultimate pop up shelter.

Yet our prices are below prices of many lesser products available from our competition. It is therefore no surprise that the XTR7 Extreme Performance Instant Shelters have become the most important part of our portfolio and now represent almost 70% of all our sales. Needless to say many have tried to copy these instant shelters but without success.

Nevertheless we would like to warn all our customers to avoid such lookalikes as they do not match our specification and in most cases do not even come anywhere near! Make sure you buy only genuine XTR7 Extreme Performance Instant Shelter.
