Our Tents

Fabric

Tentrix utilizes the highest standard of fabric for our unique structures. Each fabric includes:

  • 4- way, high tensile stretch
  • Compliant with the U.S. fire standards (CSFM 19 and NFPA 701)
  • Anti-microbial
  • UV protectant
  • Color-fast
  • Waterproof

Manufacturing

Our tents are manufactured in South Africa from top contenders in the industry, with over 10 years of experience. The premium textiles have undergone extensive research and testing to ensure the utmost quality. On-demand manufacturing provides limitless customization and quick delivery times.

All tents are engineered to withstand the rigors of mountain weather – resistant to wind, intense sun, mold, rain, hail, and even an occasional snow. Seams and hems are welded and stitched.

Rigging

Our rigging system is designed for high performance needs of the Colorado high country such as Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Vail, Breckenridge and more.  Although based in Colorado, we travel upon demand! We reduce cumbersome equipment requirements, provide the necessary strength and reduce rigging time. The braided polyester rope in the outside hem has a break strength in excess of 9,000 pounds, and provides the first line of defense against our strong winds.

The tent “stakes” are an assortment of ground anchors engineered to fit the site requirements, or ballast solutions where staking is impractical or not permitted. A pitch in the sand dunes needs an earth anchor that won’t work in rocky conditions, where screws or ridged stakes my be better suited. A concrete pitch can be staked with expansion anchors or half-blocks of concrete for ballast. Asphalt surfaces can be staked with holes repaired upon removal.

We rig for an uplift of 10 pounds per square foot. On a large tent, say, 50×80, that’s 40,000 pounds of uplift to stake. Most tension forces are localized in the corners, hence the oversized corner anchors, with supplemental anchors as needed to control and form the pitch.
