Pitching / striking
Quasi-self-supporting. 3-in-1 use of parts together or separate: complete tent / room only / flysheet on its own as a tarp. Quick pitching / striking. The room and removable groundsheet are pre-assembled. The fitted pole facilitates assembly of parts. 2 rip-tabs for the pole on the inside face of the flysheet in the event of strong winds. Storage in the cover: fold the pole, fold the tent up on itself (width of the cover) then tightly roll it all together.
Forclaz tents are tested in a laboratory (pitched tent under 200 litres/sqm/hour for 4 hours, the equivalent of a tropical rain shower), as well as test missions in the field. Polyester (PE) flysheet 40 denier, coated polyurethane (inside) & silicone (outside), PE 75D groundsheet. Seams sealed with thermo-bonded strips. Breathable and water-repellent 15 denier PE room with mosquito-netted part to prevent contact with condensation.
We test all our tents in a wind tunnel on a turntable to expose each side of the tent to the wind. To guarantee its wind resistance, the tent must be properly pitched, taut but not excessively so, with all the guy ropes well deployed around the tent. In this way, it will remain habitable with a wind speed measured at 70 km/h near the ground.
Ventilation and condensation reduction
Room with mosquito net parts for ventilation and parts in water-repellent fabric to protect from condensation and draughts. Two top ventilations and two-way zip on the door to optimise air flow. To limit condensation inside your tent, it must be correctly pitched, the cloth tight, but not excessively so. The use of ventilation and good air circulation limits humidity inside your tent.
The flysheet fabric filters UV radiation with a UPF of 30. Please note: a large amount of UV rays can pass through an open door. Protect your skin.
Complete tent made of 20% recycled material, reducing the product’s environmental impact. Flysheet made of 50% recycled material. The bedroom is made in a "self-dyed" component that reduces the amount of water used. The poles are coloured using an innovative anodising method which eliminates the use of nitric and phosphoric acids.
Warranty & after-sales service
As designers and users who love our natural playground, we care about the durability of our products, which is why all our tents are designed to be repairable. You will find spare parts (pole repairs etc) in your local Decathlon store, workshop, on our website or at the address http://spi-atelier.decathlon.fr/atelier/produit/1972432 In the event of a problem, have your tent examined in your Decathlon store.
2 years. All our tents are repairable. Parts and information in store or on the website
Storage: after use or cleaning, store the tent only once perfectly dry to prevent any odour or mould from developing.
The waterproofing of Forclaz tents is validated with the tent pitched, under 200 litres of water/sqm/hr (tropical rain shower) for 4 hours, with no water passing through the seams, flaps, openings, zips, etc. The water column test (= mm Schmerber) measures the waterproofing of the fabric. Wind resistance: tents pitched in a wind tunnel on a rotating table to expose each side of the tent to the wind. We also carry out numerous field tests in real conditions.
