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.

Pitching/striking

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.

Waterproofing

Forclaz tents are laboratory-tested: pitched tent, 200 litres/m²/hour (3 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.

Wind resistance

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.

Sun protection

The fabric of the flysheet has a titanium dioxide (Ti0²) coating with a UPF protection of 50 +.
Caution: A large amount of UV rays can pass through an open door.
Protect your skin.

Seasons

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.

Environmental approach

Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths.
To reduce this impact on the environment, we have chosen not to dye the white sections of the flysheet therefore the product is in its raw state. This process called “greige” doesn't pollute water with dyes and reduces CO2 emissions.

ADDITIONAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION

For the inside bedroom, we have opted for mass pigmentation called "dope dye" which integrates the colour pigments from the initial thread manufacture and reduces CO2 emissions.

Finally, 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.

Repairs and After-sales service

As designers, we care about the durability of our products, which is 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, or on the website.
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

Durability

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.

Warranty

5 years.All our tents are repairable. Parts and information in store or on our website
