Currently on the market a wide range of tents, in terms of their classification, the circle of people used to be divided into two categories, one for the "mountain type", mainly for more severe weather conditions designed, performance-oriented emphasis on the anti- Wind, rain, high strength, the more appropriate choice of materials, the production process is more complex, belong to the high-end tents, suitable for mountaineering, adventure more complex climate environment. The other is what we usually refer to as a "tourist type", designed for general outings and camping. The material selection focuses more on economy. The production process is relatively simple and belongs to the low-grade tents and can be used as a general environment camping.
1.Understand tent categories and style
Tent in the design for different purposes and to distinguish different styles, the appearance of the tent, the common tent can be roughly divided into five styles.
A, triangular tent, before and after the use of herringbone iron pipe for the stent, the middle frame of a bar connection, prop up the inner ledger, fitted with the outer can, this is the most common early tent style.
B, Park-shaped tent, also known as Mongolian-style package, the use of double-pole cross-support, disassembly are relatively simple, is currently the market's most popular styles.
C, hexagonal tents, with three or four-pole cross-support, and some with six-bar design, focusing on the stability of the tent, is the "mountain" tents of the common style.
D, the bottom of the tent, propped up as an anti-buckle boat, but also can be divided into two, three different support methods, the general middle of the bedroom, two for the hall shed, in the design of the wind flow lines, It is also one of the most popular tents.
E, roof-shaped tent, shaped like an independent small tile-roofed house, the support is usually four corners of the four corners, shelves up a structural ridge roof, this tent is generally relatively tall, relatively bulky, suitable for motorists or relative Camping fixed field operation, it is called car tent.
2.Understand the structure and specifications of the tent
Tent size refers to the size of the size. The current habit is to be divided into single, double, three, four ... ... and other different specifications, the larger specifications can accommodate ten people in two rooms and one hall structure, and its relative size, But this size is not absolute, it is related to the type of tent. For example, the mountain-type tents: double size of 2m × 1.15-1.25m, three specifications for the 2m × 1.5m, while the tourist-style double-size tent 2m × 1.5m, three-tents for the 2m × 2m, choose different specifications of the tent, First find out the type of needs, select the specific specifications, so as not to make mistakes.
3.Understand the material and performance of the tent
In general, the same label fabrics, different density, so the tensile strength and waterproof pressure are also different. Compared to different fabrics, nylon thin and light, suitable for hiking and hiking camping use. Oxford cloth thick, but heavy, suitable for the production of camping or small groups of tents. From the waterproof coating, PVC waterproof is good, but the winter will be hard, brittle, prone to crease or fracture. PU coating can not only overcome the defects of PVC, waterproofing is also very good. Repeated coating of PU, waterproof pressure up to 2000mm above.
Tent strut is the tent's skeleton. The pros and cons of the skeleton material not only affect the life of the tent, but also affect the stability of the tent. Early tents tendons tend to use reinforced materials, which not only increase the weight of the tent, and the resilience is also poor. Improve the tent skeleton selected fiberglass struts, the components have been reduced, the resilience has increased, and the cost is low, so the current selection of such tents manufacturers to make struts, but the strength and strong glass fiber struts Sex is not ideal, if * bold strut to increase strength, but also increased the weight. The ideal strut when the aluminum alloy material, the use of high-strength alloy tube connected to the strut, not only high strength, but also light weight, good resilience, especially made of Aerospace aluminum Easton strut, a variety of indicators Have achieved excellent condition, so mostly for high-end tent selection.
