All our bell tents come with the following features as standard
Heavier than the competitors, our 350gsm fabric (before treatment) is a 65/35 poly-cotton mix. The cover is waterproof, mould/rot treated and fire retardent to ISO 6941. Standard in traditional off-white colour for the coolest of summers and greatest protection on the not so cool days.
Heaviest duty groundsheet in Fire Retardent PVC, this gives you full protection from any rising damp and cold. The zipped in groundsheet gives you the ultimate protection and reduces tent maintenance through your stay as you seal yourself in against the Outside. The groundsheet can be removed for separate transport and storage and, is zipped in two half sections, allowing partial opening when onsite.
Heaviest duty groundsheet in Fire Retardent PVC, this gives you full protection from any rising damp and cold. The pegged in groundsheet gives you the ultimate protection. The separate groundsheet makes for lighter transportation and storage as it packs away separately from the main tent. The PIG option allows you to set up the bell tent without the groundsheet should this be your preference and makes for easy ‘rolling up’ of the sides for that cool through draft on hot days.
Two inner mesh doors with their own zips allow you to have the main canvas doors open allowing light and fresh air whilst still keeping the midgies out.
Providing ventilation and, allowing you to check out the view outside from the inside, these zip-open half round mesh windows are protected by tie back curtains. Mesh panels when closed keep the ‘midgies’ out.
Set higher up in the door panels, allowing in light and a look-out port-hole, these clear windows have drop-down curtains to both inside and out.
For easy fitting of a wood-burning stove, this integrated Kevlar flue hole panel is fitted to the front panel in the lower wall. It is protected to the outside with a zipped drop-down curatin panel
3m high and supplied in 3 parts, this softwood pole with brushed aluminium connector sleeves @ 50mm thick, this pole gives strong support to the tent and is so much nicer to the touch than the more common metal centre pole, from our competitors. The pole comes complete with an engraved wooden saucer to protect wear on the groundsheet.
Push-button spigot fit for easy pack-away, the powder coated steel A Frame gives the front its shape and maintains the rigidity of your tent whilst up.
Ribbed steel 10” pegs for the outer guy ropes provide for maximum stability in the heaviest of winds. The inner ring of pegs are strengthened bright steel @ 10” for securing both the groundsheet and the base of tent walls to the hardest of grounds. Spares come as standard.
Marine grade 10mm nylon guy ropes give your tent the ultimate strength and stability. These are fitted with wooden sliders which are both more visually appealing and more secure than the readily available thin nylon guy ropes and plastic adjusters. Spares come as standard.
Secondary rope ties and wooden toggles add security to the front whilst away and protect the front zip from any lashing rains
Stronger than the standard rubber-head equivalent, this mallet will not fly off the handle, causing personal injury
Your tent comes to you boxed and packed neatly away in an outer bag – inside which are two canvas inner bags for sharing the load between main canvas and groundsheet/accessories for ease of transportation.
Your bell tent will come complete with instructions on how to build, break down and pack away, along with essential tips on maintenace, storage, 'weathering' and mould avoidance.
