Medieval Color Options: Red, Blue, Black, Green, Yellow, Khaki, Purple IN FLAME RETARDENT CANVAS ONLY.
Flame retardent canvas has a special water mildew treatment that allows the canvas to be dyed. However, the flame treated canvas will shrink 5-7%.
We highly recommend the use of a ground cloth with your tent. It keeps moisture from coming up through the ground and gives you a clean floor for walking and set-ting gear. When used in conjunction with a sod cloth, a ground cloth can completely seal out wind, moisture, and insects. We offer you two styles of ground cloths to choose from.
REGULAR GROUND CLOTH - These are made of 10 oz. waterproof mildew resistant canvas. Colors may vary between off white to a tan/brown. This is the type of ground cloth that has been around for years. It has about a 5% shrinkage factor.
SUPER GROUND CLOTH - In a matter of days a patch of pretty green grass can turn into a black mass of rotten goo on the bottom of your canvas ground cloth. Thats why for stays of a week or more weve created this SUPER GROUND
There are many, many uses for tent flys, both by themselves and in conjunction with other tents. With a wall tent or a wedge tent, a fly can be used as an insulation barrier, as a sun/rain canopy, or as both at the same time.
Our tent flys are designed to come off the end of a wall tent or wedge tent. We make our wall tents and non-military wedge tents with peak grommets so you can support one end of the flys ridge pole on top or your tent, requiring just one more center upright to hold up the other end. We give you heavy duty triangular rein-forcements in all 4 corners and at the peak grommet locations (Peak grommets are included). Heavy duty cotton loops are spaced every 24 along the short sides of the fly.
An 8x16 fly gives you a 79 porch, a 10x16 fly gives you a 99 porch, and so on. 16 long flys are long enough to provide a good canopy area for most sizes of tents, but we recommend the 18 long, for 14 wide wall tents and wedge tents 8 tall or higher.
COMPLETE SET UP PACKAGES
Save yourself the time and trouble of making poles, rope sets, etc! Our packages come with all the poles, ropes and tent stakes needed to set up your new home. Rope is top grade 3/8manila with wooden sliders for tension adjust-ment. Youll get enough of our iron stakes to set up your tent and a handy canvas carry bag for ropes & stakes. You cant find better poles than these! We use our top grade kiln dried poles (see below), and if a pole is over 8 feet long we automatically splice it for you and include our steel splicing sleeve. This way the package can be shipped via UPS.
Marquee tents have both center uprights and the ridge pole spliced. If you do not wish to splice your poles just let us know and well makethem as one piece units.
With your tent you will receive instructions on what size poles are needed and how to make them. Also included is information on stakes & ropes. If you decide to make your own poles, wait until you get your tent before you cut. This insures a custom fit! However, if you choose our set up package (see above) your poles will be made for you of top grade kiln dried lumber. These tough wood-en poles are the best weve seen. Youll find that they provide peace of mind on those stormy nights!
PERIMETER UPRIGHT POLES are 1.5x2 with an iron pin and a gal-vanized metal band around the top to prevent splitting! Used for mar-quee perimeter poles or wedges and wall tents 7 tall and under.
CENTER UPRIGHT POLES for marquees and large sizes of wall tents are a little bigger, 1.5x2.5, and are sectioned for easier transport and reduced shipping if the pole is over 8 feet long. CALL FOR PRICES.
RIDGE POLES are 1.5x3.5 with a curved top edge and holes placed 2 in from each end to accept upright pins. Poles longer than 8 feet are sectioned for you. CALL FOR PRICES.
THE SEAM ENGINEERING OPTION - ITS FREE!
If you like, you can have us Seam Engineer your tent. This is also called Skeletal Framework Design, and what it means is that your pole positions (grommets or loops) are placed at every seam instead of at measured intervals around the tents perimeter. If you request this option, it is no additional charge. Certain tents, like rounded or belled ones are made this way automatically by the very nature of their design, but you have a choice on certain sizes of tents that are square or rectangular.
WHICH TENTS CAN BE SEAM ENGINEERED?
Any square or rectangular tent whose dimensions are divisible by 3 can beseam engineered. For example, a 9x12 marquee can be seam engineered. The resulting tent would actually measure about 83x11 (3 panels of canvas wide x 4 panels of canvas long minus an allowance for seams). For your convenience, weve placed a * on the price chart beside any tent for
THE BENEFITS OF SEAM ENGINEERING
All your roof seams will automatically line up with your wall seams, so your tent has a more symmetrical look. Also, because your poles are closer together, and because they are all lined up with your seams you can get a more rigid set up on a large tent such as a marquee. All of your support poles are about 33 apart from each other on this style of tent and only full width panels of canvas are used.
THE DISADVANTAGES OF SEAM ENGINEERING
Your tent will require more poles for set-up. For example, our standard 18x24 marquee takes 20 perimeter poles, but if it is seam engineered it needs 30. More importantly, because each panel of canvas is only about 33 wide after allowing for seams, the actual size of our 18x24 marquee becomes about 166x22 (8 panels long x 6 panels wide). Because canvas lots vary in width, these dimensions will vary.
Here are the approximate dimensions of our marquees after theyve been seam engineered.
9x12 becomes about 83x11
