Architecture, tent poles and tent pegs
Lightweight shatterproof and frost-proof aluminium tent poles: 7001 Ø 8.5 mm.
Length 17 cm, Ø 6.1 mm.
Non-anodised 7075 aluminium for maximum strength and lightness while lowering the environmental impact.
Traditional dome shape to make the structure free-standing. A front tent pole with a peak provides additional volume and therefore a more habitable porch.
Extremely quick pitching/striking. The flysheet and bedroom are pre-assembled. Insert the tent poles into the flysheet cover. It is also quick to strike.
To store the tent in its bag, fold the tent in half to about the length of the bag, fold up the poles into a bundle onto the bedroom or flysheet, roll everything up tightly to slide into the bag.
The Forclaz tents are tested fully pitched in the laboratory: 200 L/sqm/h for 3 hours, i.e. equivalent to a tropical rain shower. They are also tested in the field by a sample user group.
75-denier PES polyester flysheet and groundsheet, polyurethane coating on the inside, water repellent treatment on the outside.
Seams taped with heat-sealed strips.
Multi-component & water repellent 75D polyester bedroom 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 60km/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. There is an air vent at the back of the tent.
To reduce condensation inside the tent, it must be correctly assembled with a taut canvas, but not excessively so. The use of the air vent and good air circulation reduces moisture inside.
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.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths.
To reduce this impact on the environment, for the grey fabric on the bedroom we use a process called “bi-ton” which only dyes one yarn out of every two. This dyed yarn is also made from a bulk dyeing process which incorporates the colour pigments from the yarn manufacturing phase onwards.This process reduces this product’s CO2 emissions
ADDITIONAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION
The pegs are not coloured or anodised (no acid is used). They may have a rough or used appearance but still have all their technical features.These actions help to reduce the environmental impact of your product.

Repair kit (ferrule, patch): 20 g
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.
