There are always several key words in the data report of the tent on product safety: hot-dip galvanizing, flame-retardant rate and wind resistance. But specifically, what kind of impact do these standards have on the safety performance of outdoor tents? The following points are explained:
1. Hot-dip Galvanizing
Usually the thickness of the electro-galvanized layer is only 5~15μm, while the hot-dip galvanized layer is generally above 35μm, even as high as 200μm. Moreover, the mechanism of zinc resistance to atmospheric corrosion includes mechanical protection and electrochemical protection. Its oxide can form a dense oxide film on the surface, preventing air from entering the steel substrate; if the surface layer is scratched, it can immediately form a new layer. Even if the damage endangers the based steel, there will be electrochemical protection. Zinc is more active than iron, so it is consumed as the anode in the zinc-iron microbattery, and the steel substrate is not destroyed as the cathode. The LP Outdoors hot-dip galvanized tent steel parts, the zinc layer is above 60μm, for long-term outdoor use, especially provide substantial guarantees to the use of permanent warehouse tents and large temporary workshops, giving enterprises trust.
2. Flame-retardant Rate
The flame retardant standard of LP Outdoors' tarpaulin has reached the B1/M2 level of German DIN4102-1. Specifically, it was carried out using the Brandschacht method, using vertical array combustion, the ignition source was a ring burner, and the test time was 10 minutes. The standard for level B1 is that the average remaining length is not less than 150mm, and the remaining length of any sample cannot be 0; the average flue gas temperature does not exceed 220°C; other accidents are not allowed. One of the most feared situations for outdoor tents is fire, but the flame-retardant standard of our tarp is so high that the fire can quickly extinguish after it is discovered, protecting the personnel and goods in the tent.
3. Wind Resistance
Another natural enemy of the tent is wind. Wind has a great test for temporary buildings. The greater the wind that can withstand the wind, the stronger the tent will be. The lowest wind resistance starting point of the LP Outdoors tents (S/G series tents) are all at 80km/h, which is equivalent to a level 9 gale, while the C system, polygon system and MPT hybrid system can withstand level 10 gales. And the largest L series, the special arc-roof tent, and the TFS curved column series are more able to stand tall in the 11th gale. All these are due to our LP Outdoors' carefulness in materials and precision in structural calculations, which makes the tents are not despised by nature.
Corrosion-resistant, fire retardant, windproof, making our LP Outdoors tents have durability comparable to traditional buildings, coupled with the advantages of low cost and fast construction time, our LP Outdoors tents are truly a good choice for you.
