When purchasing a tarpaulin, pay special attention to the quality, color and packaging of the tarpaulin. You should purchase the tarpaulin according to your actual situation. Tarpaulin is usually divided into two categories: thick tarpaulin and fine tarpaulin. Rough tarpaulin, also known as tarpaulin, is fast and resistant to folding, has good waterproof properties, is used for car transport and cover in open storage, and tents in the wild. Fine tarpaulin warp and weft yarn is used for making, labor protection clothing and its supplies. It can also be used as a fabric for shoes, travel bags, backpacks, etc. after dyeing. In addition, there are rubber tarpaulins, shield tarpaulins for fire and radiation protection, and tarpaulins for paper machines. Tarpaulin is a high-strength, water-resistant material with good toughness and softness. It is often used as canvas (canvas), polyurethane-coated polyester or polyethylene-based plastic. Tarpaulins usually have a strong grommets at the corners or edges for easy strapping, hanging or covering.

 

So what should I pay attention to when using the tent? Fixing and supporting the tent: After the tent is unfolded, first fix the four corners of the inner tent, so that the bottom of the tent can be firmly placed on the ground. If available, the mat can be filled under the tent so that the bottom of the tent can be protected. It also achieves the best waterproofing. In support of external accounts, in addition to the reliable connection with the pole, special attention should be paid to the drawstring in order to tighten the external account and achieve the best rain protection effect for the external account. Tents with skirts can be pressed with soft soil or sand, and snow can be used in winter. Better for wind protection. The fixed angle of the ground nail should be the inclination angle, the angle should be 35~45°, the distance and direction of the ground nail and the rope should be the same axis, and the angle between the rope and the nail should be 90°, which is beneficial to obtain the maximum stress intensity. . In the fixed order, attention should be paid to the corresponding fixing, such as: first front left corner, right rear corner, right front corner, left rear corner. After the whole tent is fixed, adjust the rope traction line so that the traction is consistent in all aspects. After setting up the tent, check the distance between the internal and external accounts. If they are stuck together, it will affect the rain and dew protection and should be adjusted. 2. Choice of tent location: The support of the tent should be in a relatively flat area, the entrance and exit should be back to the tuyere, and the ground should be relatively dry. If there is a thin lawn, it is the best. If the ground has a small slope, the exit should be selected at the downhill slope to facilitate trench drainage. 3. Drainage: When camping, if it is possible to rain, the procedure for digging the drain must be omitted. The drain should be close to the outer edge of the tent. If there is no tent with apron, the position of the ditch should be convenient for the flow of water into the ditch, and the drainage ditch should be dug around the tent so that the accumulated water can be discharged smoothly.
