COOPERATION WITH TENCATE
Zeltwelt There are many good reasons why you should prefer a natural material in our plastic tarpaulin segment. However, every life of a natural product is limited in time. We have therefore tested many natural materials, in the constant search for the most weather-resistant product on the market.
With the extra strong cotton blend 420 We already offer a product with an excellent price, performance ratio, which is suitable for year-round use. Nevertheless, we were not satisfied with it yet.
Over the years, the demands and fields of application of natural tents changed. Temporary installations, such as the initial group camps, increased customer demand for fixed buildings. In addition, more public institutions such as clubs, schools and tourism were interested in our natural tents, which must have a higher standard of safety.
TenCate Campshield® complies with European Union flame protection standards for larger group tents with M1 equipment.
THE MATERIAL COMPARISON
TenCate Campshield® was compared to cotton and tested outdoor for one year. The cotton is as pure natural fiber, basically a bit weaker but the tensile strength the fibers, remains surprisingly constant over the twelve months. The TenCate Campshield® has a higher tear resistance right from the start. Although the warp thread of the fabric loses its value in the first three months, it still remains noticeably more resilient than fiber in comparison to cotton.
MATERIAL & FEATURES
The TenCate Campshield® is a modern, resilient blended fabric with the look and feel of a natural fabric. This material has a high breathability and good moisture transport and is ideal with the additional flame retardant equipment as a tent fabric.
