What's the difference between inflatable tents and ordinary tents ?

Nov. 11, 2019

A tent is a shed on the ground for shelter from wind and rain, sunlight and temporary living. It is made of canvas and can be removed and transferred at any time. The tent is carried in the form of parts and assembled after arriving at the site. Therefore, various parts and tools are required. Only knowing the name and usage of each part and being familiar with the structure of the tent can we set up the tent quickly and conveniently.

The tents for outdoor sports are divided into several categories: advertising tents (promotional tents), military tents (civilian tents, construction site tents), herringbone tents, tourist tents {(3-season tents (for ordinary outdoor activities) and 4-season tents (for winter / Mountain)} disaster relief tents, inflatable tents(2 Persons Inflatable Tent and 4 Persons Inflatable Tent), washing tents, children's game tents. Let's talk about the differences between inflatable tents and family camping tipi tents in detail.

There are three differences between inflatable tents and ordinary metal support tents:

I. weight :Because the metal support tent uses iron pipe as support, its weight is relatively large, which inevitably brings troubles to transportation and movement. In particular, the larger the area of the tent, the more supports will be used, and with the increase of the tent area, the load-bearing demand will be greater, which results in the increase of the support weight, and the corresponding use of iron pipes with greater wall thickness will also increase the weight of the tent .

And inflatable tents, which are inflatable keel, can be folded. Compared with ordinary metal tents with iron pipe support structure, the weight is obviously lighter, so it is relatively easy to transport .

2. volume :For the same tent volume, the tent with metal support structure can't be packed freely due to the existence of iron pipe support; and the length of iron pipe support is generally longer, resulting in the smaller vehicles can't be put in, so the larger vehicles must be used in its transportation.

The inflatable tent, because of its soft and inflatable keel, and the air column can be folded at will after being deflated; this design allows the tent to be folded freely after use, only occupying a small volume, and can be easily put into small household vehicles and ordinary vehicles. Convenient transportation.


3. erection and demolition :The metal support tent needs to be erected by many people for a long time, and the larger the tent is, the more people are needed and the longer the time is.

Advantage :Relatively speaking, the erection of inflatable tent is very convenient, just need to lay the tent on the ground, connect the foot pump or electric pump, and the erection can be completed in a few minutes.

The same is true for the removal of metal supports. The removal and packing of metal supports require a large number of people and take a long time. When the inflatable tent is removed, it only needs to let it deflate naturally, or it can be extracted by the electric blower.

Therefore, compared with ordinary metal tent, inflatable tent has its incomparable advantages, light weight and small size, and has advantages that ordinary metal tent does not have in transportation. And its erection and demolition are very simple, will not waste more manpower and time, especially suitable for the rapid response of emergency. When the environment is bad and cannot be transported, the inflatable tent can also be airdropped.
