Engineered Tents & Wind Loads
For the event or project that can’t be interrupted by the weather, Engineered tents are the best option. If a tent is said to have Engineering it indicates that the manufacturer of that tent had it designed and tested by an engineer to withstand high wind loads. While there is some variation between engineered tents, they are typically rated to withstand continuous winds of 60 MPH and 3 second wind gust of up to 80 MPH.
An important thing to keep in mind is that tent engineering means nothing if the rental company doesn’t put the tent up properly. The main factor that comes into play when it comes to tent wind loads is how the tent is staked. Engineered Tents have staking specs that shows the required number of stakes per pole in normal soil conditions to meet engineering specifications. Where many tent companies fall short is when soil conditions aren’t normal. While 2 stakes on a pole may be appropriate in normal soil conditions you may need as many as 4 to 6 in soft soil conditions. Our concept has always been to plan for the worse and stake the tent to withstand the worse case scenario.
At the end of the day we are firm believers that God will do whatever he wants with any given tent at any given time, but there are precautions that can be taken.
