Architecture, tent poles and tent pegs
7001 aluminium poles. Ø 8.5 mm dome; top tent pole Ø 9.5 mm. Lightness and strength of aluminium. Tent pegs: 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 makes it strong. An upper tent pole provides additional volume, making it more habitable.
Extremely quick pitching or striking. The flysheet and bedroom are pre-assembled. You then need to insert the tent pole in the sleeves of the flysheet (colour code). Striking the tent is equally quick to complete. 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.
The Forclaz tents are validated in the laboratory: pitched tent, 200 L/m²/h for 4 hours (equivalent to a tropical shower). They are also tested by a panel of users in the field. 75 denier polyester flysheet, polyurethane-coated (interior) water-repellent treatment (exterior), P75D groundsheet in the bedroom. Seams taped with thermo-bonded 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 rotating platform where we can expose each side of the tent to the wind. To guarantee 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 independent CSTB laboratory in Nantes.
Ventilation and condensation prevention
Bedroom with mosquito screen for ventilation and water-repellent fabric to protect from condensation and draughts. There is good ventilation at the front of the tent and ventilation at the feet. To reduce condensation inside the tent, it must be correctly assembled with a taut canvas, but not excessively so. The air vents and resulting good air flow reduces moisture inside.
The titanium dioxide (Ti0²)-coated flysheet fabric guarantees a UPF protection of 50+. Please note: a large amount of UV rays can pass through an open door. Protect your skin.
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 support heavy loads that would weigh on the structure. In case of snow, remember to shake your tent regularly to remove the snow that has accumulated and avoid putting too much weight on the structure of your tent.
We chose to use a thread known as "biton" in some of the 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 bulk-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.
Repairs and After-sales service
As designers and users who love our camping environment, we care about the durability of our products, which is why all our tents are designed to be repairable. You will find the spare parts (tent poles, bedroom, etc) in the relevant department or workshop of your Decathlon store or online on our website In case of a problem, don't hesitate to have your tent examined at your Decathlon store. Repair kit (ferrule, patch): 20 g
After using or cleaning your tent, allow it to dry completely before folding it away. This is to prevent odours and mould from forming.
The waterproof rating of the Forclaz tents is validated by placing a pitched tent under a 200 L/sqm/h shower of water (tropical rain) for 4 hours, and checking that no water passes through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. The water column test (= mm Schmerber) measures the waterproof rating of the fabric. We test all our tents in a wind tunnel, on a rotating table to check all four sides. We also perform tests on the components (abrasion, tearing, perforation, etc).
