Tentickle Stretch Tent Textiles

Durable and flexible stretch tent fabrics

We design specific textiles to fulfill a specific purpose, yet despite this our textiles are multi-functional working in rental, semi-permanent and permanent installations. Take the Organic Stretch Tent which works well for rentals because it recovers quickly and is also light and easily portable. In contrast, TentFlex is a tough, durable textile, making it ideal for semi-permanent installations. For a top of the range and exclusive product, Durastretch Lightweight FR works beautifully across all applications and offers a lifetime protection coat.

Seam Sealing Durastretch

Below is an overview on the available textiles at Tentickle Tents and their unique benefits:

The TentFlex FR*: A textile which is increasingly popular as a result of its waterproofing abilities in semi-permanent applications or in rental applications in rainy countries where long term waterproofing is a key concern. The fabric has less flexibility to maximise the waterproofing and wind stability capability in semi-permanent. It is a fabric with a distinct contemporary look due to its external matt coating. The seams and patches are welded on for complete protection from water.

Organic Stretch**: This is the next generation of a stretch tent textile that is extremely well-received. It is lightweight with good tensile strength and a maximum amount of stretch which ensures that it is effortless to rig and is also conducive to experimenting with different styles and applications. The goal when developing this product was to augment the stretch, recovery and waterproofing capabilities after many functions.

Durastretch Lightweight FR***: This textile offers the best recovery of all the available materials even after semi-permanent installations. It is made from organic flame retardant fabric, which after many years of research and product development, now complies with all of the international fire safety standards in the countries it has been tested in. The class leading high tensile strength of this textile also means the poles of the Durastretch Lightweight FR can be positioned further apart than those of other tent textiles on the market, which improves visibility inside the tent and reduces costs. Lastly, thanks to its lifetime protection coat, Durastretch Lightweight FR works twice as well for rentals and many satisfied clients will stand testament to this. All of these benefits result in a product that is very much in demand across the globe.

Rental stretch tent textiles

Our rental stretch tents offer the following unique capabilities that are important in this application:

  • After 60 – 80 functions the textiles won’t have a memory of all previous functions and their pole positions
  • It will remain waterproof for at least 80 rental functions to avert leaks
  • Quick recovery as it will be rigged in various ways
  • Strong textiles because the corners and loops wear off more quickly than when used in one position

We trust that the above guideline was helpful in allowing you to make an informed decision about your stretch tent hire or purchase.
