Architecture, tent poles and tent pegs
7001 aluminium poles. Ø 8.5 mm dome; top tent pole Ø 9.5 mm. Durable lightweight aluminium. Tent pegs/stakes: Length 17 cm, Ø 6.1 mm. Non-anodised 7075 aluminium for maximum strength and lightness while lowering the environmental impact.
Traditional dome shape that makes the structure free-standing and gives it good durability. Top pole provides volume and therefore capacity.
Extremely quick pitching/striking. The flysheet and bedroom are pre-assembled. You then need to insert the tent pole in the sleeves of the flysheet (colour code). It is also quick to strike. To store the tent in its bag, just fold up the tent until it is as wide as the bag, fold up the tent poles into a bundle and place them on the bedroom or the flysheet, and roll everything up into a small bundle to fit it all in the bag.
Forclaz tents are laboratory-tested: pitched tent, 200 litres/m²/hour (4 hours, equivalent to a tropical storm). They are also tested in the field by a sample user group. 75 denier polyester flysheet, polyurethane-coated (interior) water-repellent treatment (exterior), P75D groundsheet in the bedroom. Seams taped with heat-sealed strips. Multi-component bedroom (P66D) that is breathable, provides protection from the wind and reduces condensation.
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable where we can expose each side of the tent to the wind. To test its wind resistance, the tent must be properly pitched, taut but not stretched, with all the guy ropes in position around the tent. It should remain habitable at wind speeds of 70km/h, measured near ground level. Our tents are certified by the CSTB independent laboratory in Nantes.
Ventilation and condensation prevention
Bedroom with mosquito screen for ventilation and water-repellent fabric to protect from condensation and draughts. Large vent at front of tent and additional vent at feet end. To reduce condensation inside your tent, it must be properly pitched, with the fabric kept taut without being over-stretched. Vents and good air flow will help reduce humidity inside your tent.
Repairs and After-sales service
As designers and users who love our playing field, we care about the durability of our products, that’s why all our tents are designed to be repairable. You will find the detachable parts (poles, bedroom, etc.) in store or in the workshop of your local Decathlon, on the website or at the address support.decathlon.fr If you have a problem, don't hesitate to have your tent looked at in your local Decathlon store. Repair kit (ferrule, patch): 20 g
3-season tent: your tent will protect you from the harsh weather conditions you can encounter in the spring, summer or autumn. It will withstand light snowfall but is not designed to withstand heavy loads that would weigh on the structure. In case of snow, remember to shake your tent regularly in order to bring down any snow that has accumulated to avoid putting too much weight on the structure of your tent.
We chose to use a thread known as "biton" in some fabrics of this tent. Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this impact on the environment, we use only one mass-dyed yarn out of every two and thereby reduce our consumption and our impact on water.
Tent eco-design (continued)
The tent pegs are not anodised. We have stopped using nitric and phosphoric acids to fix the colour because its only function is to make them look aesthetically pleasing. Your tent pegs can have an "untreated" or "used" appearance but they retain all their technical characteristics and strength. These actions help to reduce the environmental impact of your product.
Your tent is designed for itinerant bivouacking, it is therefore not designed for static use in the sun. We recommend that you avoid leaving it in the sun as the ultra-light fabrics can be sensitive to UV light, that damages them.
