Why does biton help to reduce the environmental impact?
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our impact on the environment, we use biton.
One out of every two threads is dyed in bulk, thereby reducing our water consumption and water pollution. We decided to use this process on the grey section of the tent's flysheet.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we chose to use the Dope Dyeing process in which the colour pigments are added during the production of the yarn itself. We decided to use this process on the blue section of the tent's flysheet.
Why does greige help to reduce the environmental impact?
Greige means that the fabric is not dyed and is in its raw colour state.
Given the significant environmental impact of dyeing, we chose to use this process on bedroom of the tent.
Pitching and dismantling
There are three poles to insert into their corresponding sleeves. There are colour codes to help you.
We recommend that 2 people pitch the tent.
Living Room and Bedroom
3.9 sqm living area and a maximum inner tent height of 1.40 m.
Each bedroom in this tent is intended to accommodate a maximum of four 60 cm wide mattresses. It can also accommodate a couple looking for a very large bedroom.
Ventilation of the tent
To promote air flow and replacement between the bedroom and the flysheet, and reduce natural condensation as much as possible, the tent is equipped with high ventilation hatches at the front and back and high mosquito nets at the back of the bedroom.
Waterproofing of the tent
All our tents are validated in the laboratory and in the field to guarantee the waterproofing.
To do this, we put the entire tent under a 200 L/h shower for 3 hours.
The flysheet is made of 2000mm Schmerber PU-coated polyester and the groundsheet is made of 120g/m² polyethylene. All the seams are sealed with thermobonded tape.
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side to the wind. A properly pitched tent with all the guy ropes properly positioned around the tent should remain habitable in wind speeds of up to 50 km/h measured near ground level (Force 6).

Warranty of your tent
This camping tent was designed for occasional outdoor use (4 weeks per year) during your camping trips or in the countryside.
Continuous exposure to UV light over a period of several weeks can damage its textile part.
Our tents do not belong to the category of "garden furniture" and are not designed to be kept outdoors permanently.
To maximise the lifetime of your tent, it's important to store it properly when it is not being used.
Don't throw away, repair!
Our tents are great for camping at night.
Over time, they age and some parts may wear out or break.
To facilitate repairs, we keep a stock of parts (tent poles, flysheets, bedrooms, etc.) so that they can be easily replaced.
Don't throw away, repair !
