All pole tents aren’t created equally.
Tension tents – pole tents with structural elements that allow them to meet strict guidelines for engineered wind loads – use very specific construction methods to create a superior network of webbings throughout the top. That network of webbings is often joined to plates that tie them together to create the “bones” of the tent. The structural fabrics, reinforcing plate systems and heavy duty webbings, are used in very specific ways in the construction of the tent that ultimately work together as a cohesive unit to resist very high winds and give the owner many years of service.
TopTec’s Epic series tension tents meet IBC 20112 and ASCE 7-10 standards with a sculptured tension shape that eliminates flat corners and reduces water damage for a longer lifespan and greater ROI.
