Characteristics of Tent Fabrics
Tent City tents perform best when well maintained and used properly. The finest finishes and treatments available have been used to ensure strong color retention and the best possible resistance to water, mildew, and flame. However, due to varying climatic conditions, this does not constitute a gurantee.
If detected, brush off immediately. Regardless of treatment, there is no way to absolutely stop the fungus growth if it is prevalent in your area. No tent can be guranteed not to mildew. Be sure the tent is dry and stored in a cool, dry place.
No tent fabric can be guranteed absolutely waterproof. Initial leakage will occur at seems or at an occasional pinhole. It usually requires exposure to dampness and several rains before slight leakage is minimized or eliminated. Such exposure tends to allow thread, fabric and stitching to swell.
All fabrics used in the production of camp tents are flame resistant and are labeled according to goverment specifications. Denoted with FR.
Variable sun conditions, exposures, types of materials and finishes all influence color retention of fabrics. Consequently, tent fabrics cannot be guaranteed against fading.
