OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
We've improved this product through an eco-design procedure for the colouring processes for materials, using the "dope-dyed" technique.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced. We used this process for this product (reference:
Square living room with an area of 6.25 sqm and a maximum height of 2.15 m.
Door height: 1.70 m.
Pitching and dismantling
Traditional pitching and dismantling with poles. Follow the instructions stitched into the product’s cover.
We recommend that 2 people pitch the tent.
The roof fabric has UPF 30 sun protection.
Caution: be careful, as a large amount of UV rays can get in through a simple open door.
Three sides have an opening for better air flow. Each of the openings has a mosquito net to prevent insects from getting inside.
We test all our living rooms in a wind tunnel on a turntable. The goal is to expose each side of our living room to the same wind intensity.
Properly pitched, with the guy ropes deployed, this living room remains habitable in wind speed 6, measured at 50 km/h.
Waterproof and taped seams
We test our living rooms to validate their waterproofing. The first test is done in the laboratory, 3 hours under 200 litres of water per hour per sqm, the equivalent of tropical rain of 200 mm per hour. The second test is done in the field under real-life conditions by our teams. This living area is fitted with a polyurethane-coated polyester flysheet measuring 2,000 mm. It also has seams that have been waterproofed with heat-sealed strips, and a 140 g/sqm polyethylene groundsheet.
As designers and users who love nature, we care about the durability of our products. That's why all our tents are designed to be repairable. Spare parts and repairs for inflatable hoops are available at the workshop of your Decathlon store or on our website.
Poles and tent pegs
Poles - All our poles are made from fibreglass and undergo double quality checks. This guarantees some of the best resistance against breakage.
Tent pegs - All our pegs are made of steel and have a diameter of 6 mm.
Our camping living rooms have been designed for occasional outdoor use (4 weeks per year) when camping or in the great outdoors. Continued exposure to UV rays over several weeks can damage the fabric. These products are not classified as “garden furniture” and aren’t designed to be left outdoors permanently. To guarantee maximum durability for your camping living room, it's important to store it when not in use.
Tips for storage and maintenance
We advise that you air-dry your living room outside, including the underside. You can then store it without any risk of odours or mould developing.
Restrictions on use
Not suitable for permanent outdoor exposure.
