Product description


For the inflatable frame we use an extremely robust, though lightweight fabric, similar to that used for inflatable boats: 25 oz/yd². The seams of the frame are HF welded and the corner joints are mitered. The frame of the self-erecting ARZ has been optimized for compressed air bottles. The tents can be set up in 1.5 minutes using the compressed air kit. Depending on tent size, assembly takes 2-4 minutes when using an electric blower. A pressure relief valve prevents excessive pressure in the frame.

Tubes in the eaves and in the ridge are the same diameter as the supporting frame (0.75 ft). Expensive aspirators to take in additional ambient air are not required. The frame is connected to the shelter skin and floor by means of hook and loop so it is fully detachable. The inflatable purlins are screwed to the main arcs and pneumatically connected to them by means of transfer valves. That makes it possible to take out single purlins or arcs from the inflatable frame for repairs or in case replacements are needed. A multi-chamber system can be implemented on customer request.

Shelter skin and floor

The shelter skin is made of one side PU-coated polyester fabric (7 oz/yd²), flame retardant, waterproof and mildew resistant. The shelter floor is made of both sides PVC coated polyester fabric (16 oz/yd²) and is also available with non-slip embossing as option (25 oz/yd²). Shelter skin is extremely tear resistant. However, if needed, the skin, floor and frame can be easily replaced. 11 different standard colors are available, other colors available on request
