A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. This concept applies to factors that affectsafety, strength andventilation in tent design.
Tentipi Adventure tipis have a big advantage in the wind because they have a symmetrical shape with a low centre of gravity. This keeps the Nordic tipi stable when the wind gusts. Most of the Nordic tipi area that’s under wind pressure is near the ground, where the wind speed is lower. Only a small, slim area projects higher than other tents. This means that Tentipi Adventure tipis are actually more secure in high and gusty winds than most other tent designs.Sample Description
Our Adventure tipis have a five-piece, triple-strength alloy pole, and use the very best of 21st century material technology. As a result you have all-weather performance, supported by powerful ground straps, the strongest storm cord fastenings in the tent market, and tent pegs of super-hardened aluminium. Most importantly, you have a choice of fabrics to match your needs and budget. If you want to cross Antarctica, survey a glacier or trek in the High Atlas you can have the best possible materials on the planet to match your extreme requirements. If your plans are less demanding but you still want strength and durability allied to light weight, we have the materials for this, too. The Tentipi company is based near the Arctic Circle. In winter, it can be -45ºC, and +30ºC in summer. We’re surrounded by mountains, swamps, rivers and forests. We understand the elements, and we respect them. We understand the widest range of outdoor lifestyles, and we satisfy them.Sample Description
Many other tent designs use a wall-connected framework that can crack in strong winds or if people stumble into it. We avoid these risks. Our Nordic tipis have a central pole that lifts up the top of the tent. Every seam in the fabric then contributes to a strong but still flexible framework when the fabric is secured to the tent pegs. Normally, the worst thing that can happen is that a tent peg comes loose. And that is much easier to fix than a broken pole in a dome tent. All our single-pole Nordic tipis are designed so that you can sit round an open fire inside. Even the smallest lightweight ones let you do this. They have much better ventilation than you find in other tents. Better still, in most models, this ventilation has a patented In-Tent Vent™ system so that the top ventilator opening can be adjusted for size and direction from inside the Nordic tipi. Convenience is a priority. The adjustable tent peg fixings also make all the Tentipi Adventure tipis easy to use in snow or sand. What mainly distinguishes our different styles from each other is the type of materials, and the details. These affect the weight, comfort, lifespan and price. Our aim is to give you the choice of price and performance that you need.Sample Description
On windy days, ventilation is seldom a problem. It’s those boiling hot days when the air stands still that are the worst. Only then can one judge which tent has the best ventilation. On such windless, hot days, there’s only one solution and that’s natural ventilation. Natural ventilation is affected by a number of interacting factors. One poor factor can impede or block the effect of other strong factors. The bigger the height difference between air intakes and outlets, the better. Warm air is lighter than cold and therefore rises, and the taller the warm air pillar is, the stronger the airflow will be. This means the air does not need to be warmed up as much in order to be exchanged which is nice for those in the tent. Thanks to the tallness of Tentipi Adventure tipis, natural ventilation works much better than in any other ordinary tent. The exchange of air is also affected by the size of the air intakes and air outlets. If the insect net is too dense, airflow will be severely obstructed. The more small threads the net has, the more micro-whirlwinds will be created thereby slowing down airflow.
