What canvas do we use?


Premium Canvas

Our Premium canvas is used for our Standard, Deluxe and Ultimate Bell Tents. Lightweight but strong (285 grams per square metre post proofing), high quality, unbleached, cotton canvas – the perfect balance between durability and portability. It is a fabulous unbleached colour - no bright white nightmares - creating an iconic silhouette, and giving a warm and gentle vibe inside.

As well as being UV and mould resistant, the material is treated to be water resistant for up to 60 weeks of constant use, but can last longer depending on the conditions.

All Premium and Pro canvas is tested to adhere to European to BS5852 standards. This is the 'cigarette test' that shows that the tent will not ignite when burnt by the likes of a cigarette. If burnt with the likes of a gas burner it takes an average of five seconds to ignite and will not drip molten plastic as with polyester tents.


Pro Canvas

To deal with the demand from our customers for an even more hardwearing canvas, we developed a heavier duty cotton canvas in Europe that is thicker than our Premium canvas at 440 grams per square metre, and has a higher mould resistance.

Extremely durable and fully weatherproof, the canvas is also stiffer as it is heavier gauge cotton, with thicker proofing and a lot stronger.

Fire Proof Canvas

We offer 4 metre and 5 metre Deluxe Bell Tents in Fire Proof Canvas. This is a much heavier canvas with a different look to our normal tents. We recommend only buying this tent if it is vital for you to have this level of fire proofing.
