Selection of poles for outdoor tents

There are four common support skeletons:

1. Steel pipe: also known as high-frequency welded pipe, mainly used on large tents such as military tents and disaster relief tents. The surface is sprayed or galvanized. There are round pipes and square pipes. The pipe diameter is generally 19-50mm. The wall thickness ranges from 0.8 to 3mm.

2. Flexibility: This type of account is generally for children or beach games.

3. Fiberglass rod: There are a series of 6.9/7.9/8.5/9.5/11/12.5. The thicker the thickness, the stronger the rigidity and the weaker the softness. Therefore, whether the choice of the fiber tube bracket is reasonable is determined by the ratio of the size of the floor to the height, and it is easy to break if it is too thick or too thin. For example: 210*210*130 is a relatively classic size, the tube is generally 7.9 or 8.5.

4. Aluminum alloy frame: It is relatively high-end, and it is also difficult to inspect according to the alloy ratio. Generally, the overall arc curve of the original bracket is calculated first and then processed by hot pressing. The characteristic is that it is light and easy to carry, but it is not easy to fold, but it is easy to bend and deform when the quality is not good.

Many people think that aluminum pole tents are lighter than fiberglass pole tents. In fact, the weight of a tent does not depend on what poles it uses. After the same double fiberglass pole tent is replaced with aluminum poles, it can only be about 150 grams lighter. , Many fiberglass pole tents can also be made very light. The real advantage of aluminum alloy poles lies in their durability. FRP poles will break when used frequently, and tents cannot be set up. Such problems will also occur at low temperatures. In addition to bending, the aluminum alloy rod will not break under normal use, and the integrity of the aluminum alloy rod is better than that of the glass steel rod. Aluminum pole tents are more expensive than fiberglass poles, but they are not out of reach. There are also many 600-1000 aluminum pole tents.
