A tent is a temporary accommodation that is primarily suitable for overnight stays on expeditions or trips. Of course, there are also marquees in which performances or parties are held. In addition, nomadic peoples in some Asian countries live in these light dwellings. Tents are easy to dismantle and quite easy to transport. The construction of a tent consists of putting together a substructure and a tent skin. However, the effort required to set up the tent depends on the construction and size of the tent.

Camping & Outdoor: Tent Video Guide

Ridge tentThe ridge tent is one of the classic tents. Two vertical poles and a tarpaulin above them are all you need to finish the temporary shelter. The ridge pole increases the stability of the corresponding tent. However, herrings and ropes are used for setting up. In contrast to the dome tent, the ridge tent does not have so much space. There is also always a pole at the entrance to the tent. But especially nostalgics like this form. Single-arch tents are a special form of ridge tent. They are similar in structure. A ridge tent is an optimal outdoor tent.

Dome tentThe dome tent, also known as the igloo tent, is now the standard tent. Its elastic poles make up the special shape. These cross at the apex to give the tent a certain stability. The four poles also support the tent floor so that a dome tent can be self-supporting if necessary. Therefore no ropes or herrings need to be used. In order to get a better stability, especially in unstable weather, you should use them anyway. This makes it an ideal trekking tent.

Tunnel tentThis tent is constructed in the form of a tunnel. Here elastic rods are tensioned parallel in the arch, which provide the necessary hold. When building it is advantageous to know from which direction the wind comes. The problem with the tunnel tent is that it can quickly become unstable if the wind actually blows on its broad sides. Because this tent often contains some sleeping cabins, it is particularly suitable as a family tent. The bigger the tent, the more time it takes to pitch it. One should practice the assembly before the first use once, so that with camping fewer problems arise. It is particularly popular at festivals.

TossedTentsIt is suitable for those who do not want to build for a long time. The structure of the throw tent is comparable to that of the tunnel tent. It can be stowed quite easily due to the ring system. The stable and flexible fibreglass poles provide sufficient stability for the tent. It only takes a few seconds to set it up. After only opening the package, it is thrown on the ground. When using this tent, it is possible to do without pegs. Thus the throwing tent can be set up everywhere. Party tentA party tent is often used in the home garden. It is ideal for providing shade or preventing light rain. Often this tent consists of only four vertical struts. A short roof is placed on these accordingly. A party tent can be set up quite easily. In contrast to the normal tent, it contains much simpler materials. It is not so weatherproof compared to the right camping tent

Number of sleeping cabinsThe number of sleeping chambers usually depends on the number of persons. Many common camping tents contain only one sleeping cabin. They can be used by one to four people. For family tents, particularly large tents are available which are equipped with four sleeping chambers for eight people. However, there are also variants with only two sleeping cabins. There are no sleeping cabins in marquees, as it is assumed that people do not sleep in them. However, larger tents can accommodate up to 56 people.

WatertightnessThe tent water column plays a special role. It indicates the amount of water the tent can hold. From a 1,500 millimetre water column, a tent is considered waterproof. FrameThe predominant material in camping and family tents is fibreglass. The advantage of fibreglass is that it is flexible and light. Therefore it is often used for dome and single arch tents. Steel is by no means so flexible and heavy. At festival tents, steel is used as normal poles, because this tent should be particularly stable.

Tent tarpaulin materialIn camping tents, the tent skin is mainly made of polyester. In rare cases, cotton can also be found as the outer skin. She’s much more breathable. However, it expands in wet conditions. Sometimes nylon is used as well. The advantage here is that the fabric is much lighter. However, nylon expands with moisture. Therefore the tent should be retightened more often. Therefore, it is recommended to choose a polyester tent. The primary material used for the marquee is polyethylene, which is completely sufficient for the intended purpose.
