Wooden frames

Sturdy wooden frames

Our wooden frames are extremely strong. Something which is essential, since our safari tents and lodges are located throughout the world. Our frames make the tents resistant to all weather conditions. All tents are winter proof and resistant to strong winds, even storms. And we even have snow frames available.

Wind speed

All the wooden frames of the safari tents consist of a 100 mm round wooden frame. Tentech Engineering has made various calculations. These structural calculations guarantee that the tent can withstand a dynamic pressure and a maximum wind speed of 0.25 kN/m². This represents a Beaufort scale number of 8 within all the safety margins of the calculation. Some of our customers have told us that the tent can even withstand an 11 Beaufort wind force.

Snow Load

The maximum snow load equals 0.22 kN/m², corresponding to 10 cm of fresh snow. These numbers are guaranteed within all safety margins.

Optimisation

Our materials are very strong because of constant optimisation. We are continuously looking for the best materials, remain critical and always look for improvement. Learn more about the materials we use? You can find more product information here.
