Tent Proofing & Care
About Tent Proofing & Care
A tent is an essential tool for enjoying the pleasures of nature for a prolonged period. Whether you are going out into the wilds on your own, or getting away from the hustle and bustle with your family, camping trips can be a precious opportunity to refresh and recharge through connection with nature.
With a tent being a key part of the puzzle, it's vital to make sure that you are well prepared when it comes to keeping it in good condition. This is where our range of tent proofing and care products will certainly come in handy. Browse through the selection and you should be able to find everything you need to extend the life-span of your tent.
As with any other piece of kit which you take and use outdoors, tents will age over time with use and exposure to the elements. Although this is the most likely scenario, it's far from fact. Decline is not inevitable. And you can offset deterioration with a little bit of extra care along the way. When you care for your tent, it's a bit like being a good car owner in that you have the opportunity to extend the length of your tent's life. On top of that, a well looked after tent will have the same functionality as when new, so you would not need to put up with a tent that's underperforming in some aspects of its design.
One important area of tent construction that can see decline over time is the waterproofing of the fabric. As a tent ages, some materials do lose their effectiveness in this regard. If you feel like it would be wasteful to completely get rid of the tent, and it most likely is if repair is an option, then you can always apply a waterproofing product before your next trip. The great thing about waterproofing products is that they can also be used on a number of different fabrics. This means that you might also be able to rejuvenate a jacket or a pair of shoes with a new lease of life too.
