Outdoor sports tents are divided into several categories: advertising tents (promotional tents), military tents (civilian tents, construction tents), herringbone tents, tourist tents {(3 seasons tents (for general outdoor activities) and 4 seasons tents) (Winter/Alpine use)} Disaster relief tents, inflatable tents, decontamination tents, children's play tents. Below we will introduce the differences between these types of tents in detail.
According to the expansion method, it can be divided into quick opening tent and hand tent.

Construction type
The early construction tents in our country were needed during the war, and the military tents emerged. Because of their sturdiness and durability, suitable fabrics, low cost, and adaptability to various terrains, they have also become the first choice for construction tents and engineering tents. The prototype of modern construction tents is that to this end.
(1) Tent specifications: common specifications 5*10 5X8 5X6 5X4 3X4 2*3
(2) The tent has a reasonable structure, is safe and reliable to use, and can bear the load of 8 wind and 8 cm thick snow at the same time.
(3) The tent adopts a steel frame structure, which is simple in structure and convenient for exhibition and collection. It can be erected or withdrawn by 4 people in about 20 minutes.
(4) Tent (two pieces of cloth bag + steel frame), the packing volume is 0.8 cubic meters.

 

 

Herringbone top
Herringbone-top big tents are also called big tents, tents, etc. They are mainly used for various large-scale outdoor activities.
The main structure of the herringbone-top big tent consists of two parts, one is the aluminum alloy main frame, and the other is the tarp. In fact, other comprehensive supporting facilities are often equipped to beautify and improve various themed events.
1. The main structure of the gabled-top big tent is made of high-strength aluminum alloy profiles. The construction principle is an aluminum box beam frame. The support connection between the columns is made of steel parts. The roof is reinforced by steel cable stays. The roof and wall are both Base cloth enclosure. The material is selected according to the GB/T-6063 standard of aluminum alloy profile, and the material is qualified after inspection by the National Non-ferrous Metal Quality Supervision and Inspection Center. The tent project has a solid foundation, and the materials and structures used have high integrity and safety. The building structure meets strict European standards. The overall structure has passed wind test and destruction test by professional institutions.
2. The tarpaulin uses professional coated fabric PVC. Possess long-lasting bonding performance: the knife-scraping coating technology uses the physical and chemical bonding of liquid PVC and fiber to directly scrape the slurry on the fabric; strong welding performance: the fabric after welding can withstand great tension, even in In harsh environments such as hurricanes and frequent operations, it will not affect the sealing degree of the welded joint; durable service life: a certain thickness not only gives the knife-scraped coated fabric good UV resistance, but also prolongs the service life of the product; good Color fastness: As the pigment is directly immersed into the PVC coating, the knife-scraped coated fabric can keep the color and luster always as bright as new. Anti-corrosion, anti-mildew, anti-ultraviolet and flame-retardant (M2 and B1) properties all meet international standards. If used and stored properly, rot and mildew will not occur within three to five years.
3. Supporting system. There are roughly six series of supporting facilities for the herringbone-top big tent, including walls, floors, furniture, lamps, fabrics and other comprehensive types of supporting facilities. All the integrated design is unexpected, but not impossible. It mainly provides comprehensive, specific and best spatial solutions for activities of different nature and styles.
1. The frame is made of high-quality steel and aluminum profiles, strong and safe.
2. The sunshade tarpaulin made of high-grade synthetic fiber and double-layer PVC material has the advantages of high strength, wind resistance, rain resistance, sun protection and flame retardant.
3. Easy to install and disassemble, it is the best product for outdoor exhibition.
4. The tarpaulin can be folded, and the frame is small after disassembly, which is convenient for transportation and storage.
5. The unit combined structure can be freely increased or divided according to the size of the site. ·
Herringbone roof tents have spans ranging from 6 meters, 8 meters, 9 meters, 10 meters, 15 meters, 18 meters to 50 meters, etc. ·
Simple construction and disassembly. ·
There is no need for load-bearing pillars inside the gabled-top big tent, and the venue is 100% used. ·
There are no special requirements for the construction site, generally flat ground such as sand, grass, asphalt, cement and ceramic tiles are acceptable.

Tourist type
Three-season tents: usually lighter, generally used in milder climates in spring, summer and autumn. Three-season tents can usually perform well in wind and rain, but the design characteristics also determine that they are generally difficult to cope with excessive snowfall. If a three-season tent can barely support the 5.08 cm thick snow on it, when the falling snow reaches 50.8 cm thick, you must be in trouble. There is another feature of the three-season account. It has a certain ventilation design. In order to meet different needs, it is generally designed as a double-layer tent, divided into internal and external tents. The internal tent has an inner account with a full card screen and an inner account with a half card screen. , Some of the internal and external accounts can also be used separately, so as to meet the different needs of spring, summer and autumn.
4-season tent: The stronger 4-season tent usually adds 1 or 2 support rods to make the support system able to withstand stronger wind or thicker snowfall. The shape of the winter tent is usually designed as a round dome shape to minimize the flat part on the top of the tent and prevent accumulation of snow. Of course, these winter/alpine tents are also suitable for relatively mild weather conditions. It's just that the weight of their extra support rod makes them heavier than the three-season account.
Convertible accounts are four season accounts that can be adjusted to three quarter accounts. The adjustment method is usually to remove 1 or 2 support rods from the tent's support system, and provide detachable ventilation parts in the design, which can be removed or opened to enhance ventilation in mild weather.
The simplest form is a single-layer account. Basically, this kind of tent is just a rain cloth with several vents supported by tent poles. In warmer weather, the zippers of the vents can be opened to enhance ventilation. Tent-the meaning of the term  dome tent: most of the four seasons tents are designed with a rounded dome. The dome avoids the appearance of a flat surface on the top of the tent and is not easy to accumulate snow, and this design can better resist wind and provide a sufficiently high internal space. Barracks account: The three-quarter account adopts the design form of barracks account. The bottom surface of this type of tent is rectangular, and the tent body is narrow and elongated. The barracks tents used fewer support rods and fabrics, and the whole is wedge-shaped. However, its top surface is relatively flat and easy to accumulate snow. Once it encounters strong snowfall, it will easily cause the tent to collapse.
Self-supporting tent: Dome-type tents can be self-supporting. This means that it can stand on its own without additional piles or bolts. You can easily lift and move such a tent, just like carrying a big inflatable balloon. You can also easily shake, shake, and slap such a tent to shake off the dirt before disassembling and packing. thing.

Automatic
Features: Automatic tents are mostly leisure tents, considering the needs of the general public. Automatic tents are mainly for family gatherings and friends outings. Because of the convenience of automatic tents, there is no crowd restriction, and it has set off a trend among young people. It is quick to open, easy to carry, and fashionable, all of which are evaluations given by people who own automatic tents, which also make traditional tents part of the impact. Automatic tents were introduced relatively late in China, and they are considered a new type of product, or they can be said to be something for young people. But in European and American countries, automatic tents have long become one of the must-haves for families. During the Sunday holiday, you can open the fallen quick-open tents everywhere, and now the quick-open tents have come to China, which has activated the domestic outdoor market, enriched the product range, and brought a realization that the quick-open tent is not only a kind of tent , It is an attitude to life! To understand leisure life. Quick-opening tents on the market vary in quality and prices. Low-grade quick-opening tents cost around 100 yuan, which is affordable, but the price/performance ratio is not high. Usually it can only be used as a one-time product, and you can try it once in a while. The unboundedness of the Internet allows its products to be promoted throughout the country, and it also gives people a better understanding of automatic tents. A good automatic tent uses fiberglass poles, which have high elasticity and toughness, and can be folded repeatedly, so the life span is relatively long. Low-quality automatic tents often use flat wire poles. The tent itself is lighter, but if the wire twists and cannot be restored to its original shape, the tent cannot be used. The automatic tent is usually in the shape of a round pie after being folded, which is convenient for people with cars, and some people become necessary for the trunk of the car. The price of high-quality automatic tents on the market (usually used by 2-3 people) is usually around 300-400 yuan. Of course, this is just for reference. If more automatic tent categories appear in the future, there will be more price points. When buying a tent, the most concern is the rainproof and windproof function of the tent itself. These high-quality tents can be guaranteed. Especially in terms of rainproof, it is no problem for the tent fabric to be waterproof to 1000mm-1500mm and above. What is waterproof 1000mm? It means that the fabric has no obvious water seepage under the water pressure of 1000mm for 1 hour. Unless there is a crack in the sewn laminated part, it is unlikely that water will leak under heavy rain. If the inside of the tent feels wet and cool to the touch, it may be due to the water vapor caused by the temperature difference between the dry humidity inside and outside the tent (like an umbrella). You should not worry about water leakage. Another popular analogy: usually the waterproof capacity of an umbrella is PU 1000mm. According to the actual field experience, the PU800 coating can prevent light to moderate rain in the field environment, and the PU1000-1200 coating can prevent moderate to heavy rain. In addition, some well-made brands will add some new features, such as sun protection. Having a sun protection function is the same as the UV protection of a sun umbrella. I believe this is an index that cannot be ignored for those who love beauty.
