Safari Tent Technical Specifications
All of our safari tents are designed and engineered as permanent and temporary demountable structures. Glamping & safari tents are manufactured by our team at our factory in Stroud, Gloucestershire with many aspects of the tents being hand finished. We have ensured that all materials are of the highest specifications and that the performance of these materials is particularly suitable to both the UK climate and for permanent year round use.
Our clients are investing a great deal of money setting up Glamping locations and we recognise that the proven structural performance is a significant factor in purchasing Safari Tents.
All our Safari Tents have been thoroughly tested by Structural Engineers and meet various British Standards and European codes. Call us to discuss the Structural Engineers Report.
