Condensation and discoloration

Condensation Nylon/Polyester tents:

  • All tents are treated to be water resistant. If the seams are NOT taped it is strongly recommended that you apply a sealant. We also recommend using a seam sealant on all stress areas (e.g. guy points)
  • Condensation is a normal phenomenon with all the tents of polyester and nylon.
  • During heavy rainfall and in the morning there can be condensation on the inside of the flysheet, this is normal.
  • To reduce condensation, ensure that your tent is well ventilated at all times, opening the ventilation points where available.
  • Floor condensation is also frequently in between the ground sheet and air mattress. If your tent is damp inside do not think immediately that has leaked, often it is condensation
  • Ground sheet: is a sail (canvas) on the floor under the tent, the use prolongs its life.

  • Tip:

    • Make sure when building the tent the zips are closed.
    • Use two hands to open and close zips.
    • Zip runner that miss align with zip teeth or jammed zips can usually be freed by using a wax candle or specialist zip ease spray.

    Sun and discoloration:

  • The ultra-violet rays of the sun affect the majority of substances and materials, especially nylon. The tent cloth that is in intensive sunlight will fade to a certain degree.
  • Polyester and cotton tents are the best thing against UV rays, but are often expensive. Because there is no longer asbestos in tent fabrics, they are not 100% colourfast.
