A chain is only as strong as
its weakest link. This concept
applies to factors that affect
safety, strength and
ventilation in tent design.

On windy days, ventilation is seldom a problem. It’s those boiling hot days when the air stands still that are the worst. Only then can one judge which tent has the best ventilation. On such windless, hot days, there’s only one solution and that’s natural ventilation. Natural ventilation is affected by a number of interacting factors. One poor factor can impede or block the effect of other strong factors.

The bigger the height difference between air intakes and outlets, the better. Warm air is lighter than cold and therefore rises, and the taller the warm air pillar is, the stronger the airflow will be. This means the air does not need to be warmed up as much in order to be exchanged which is nice for those in the tent. Thanks to the tallness of Tentipi Adventure tipis, natural ventilation works much better than in any other ordinary tent.

The exchange of air is also affected by the size of the air intakes and air outlets.

If the insect net is too dense, airflow will be severely obstructed. The more small threads the net has, the more micro-whirlwinds will be created thereby slowing down airflow.

Tentipi® Adventure tipis are designed for year-round use, but, as with all tents, you must clean snow from them continuously to maintain their design performance.

When using an open fire, please respect local restrictions.
