When large groups of people need to be sheltered - often under appalling conditions - they must feel completely protected by the tent around them. The canvas tents used for these group tents have to meet very specific requirements. TenCate offers a collection of fabrics specially designed for this application.
Application examples of this type of group tents are tents for aid agencies like the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders, but also care for refugees (UNHCR) and military applications.
For applications such as scouting and special group meetings TenCate provides special fabric types.
Whatever the application, the tent fabric has to be especially strong, robust and weather resistant. As additional protection, the fabrics increasingly have to meet flame retardant standards. TenCate has developed TenCate Campshield®. This fabric meets the following standards:
- Germany: DIN 4102 B2
- England: BS 7837
- Italy: CSE CLASS 1
