Hospitality tents in general
A hospitality tent is a luxury, demountable tent structure,
which can be installed on a trailer or semi-trailer. The tent is
perfect for receiving guests or relaxing, but it can also be used
as showroom or storage and workspace. Furthermore, the system can
also be used as removable or semi-permanent terrace roof.
Normally the hospitality tent is offered in a PVC coated
polyester fabric of Ferrari excellent brand (Precontraint 502). You
can choose from many colors. Generally, we recommend a white roof
for maximum day light in the tent (16% of the light can get through
the white color of 502 quality). The 502 quality is UV resistant,
easy to clean and flame-retardant as required by BS 8020-41.
Ferrari 502 has a fire rating of M2 (conform NFP 92-507) and B1
(conform DIN 4102). The material has a weight of approximately 590
g/m2. All the leftover material of the PVC fabric from the
production process will be returned for recycling. More information
about our policy regarding sustainability and recycling of the
processed materials can be found here.
In addition, we offer a light weight alternative for the Nascar
canvas. This material has a weight of approximately 225 g/m2. This
material is also flame-retardant (Class B1, DIN 4102). Nascar
canvas is available in white, gray, blue and black colors. Compared
to other suppliers of hospitality tents we fully weld the Nascar
canvas, and we guarantee waterproof seams. Other suppliers stitch
the seams of the fabric together and possible give the seams an
impregnation treatment.In the long term, this is not a good method
to make the product waterproof. In addition, a stitched seam has
only 30-50% of the strength of a welded seam.
Our quality department run checks on the welded areas to test
their strength and quality. This is done with our own pull and
press bench (test force up to 30 tons).
In the next yellow column, you see the pictures of a test we
conducted on the Nascar canvas to examine the strength of the
welded knots located horizontally in the middle of the canvas. It's
clear on the photos, the canvas breaks outside the welded knots.
This indicates the high quality of our seams (a welded joint should
be stronger than the material itself).
Besides welding of the seams, our hospitality tent has more
advantages. The roof (and the walls) are made up of four parts
(instead of a single roof). This allows to install the tent with
strong winds. It also gives a stronger structure of the tent.
Furthermore, it makes it possible to extend the tent in a modular
way; add more parts and pieces to the tent.
Individual fabric pads can also be replaced with other colors,
for example, canvas or fabrics with a (logo) print.
Moreover, the roof covers on the front are tailored so that the
roofs with the stainless steel rafter on the front are properly
tensioned and tightenend (the stainless steel clamping sleeve works
as a spring). As a result, the fabric remains tensed and water
retention will be prevented as much as possible (contrary to many
other hospitality tents).
Above you see an example of a non-Buitink Hospitality tent,
where you can see that without load (rain/water), the roof is
already sagged depends (as a result collapsing or pocketing due
rain water). The tent roofs covers of Buitink are much more tensed,
avoiding this problem.
We use the highest quality of the Keders (with double flag)
which are sealed to the surface with a so-called 2200 dtex
structure. This structure prevent the canvas to slide down on the
aluminum profiles (in case of the most used 1200 dtex Keders, the
fabric slides less, with a great chance of damaging the Keders.
This leads to Keder replacement).
The structure is made of anodized solid aluminum profiles
(110x68), which is already correspondent to the new legislation for
tents. Local authorities continuously tighten the permits for large
size tents ( e.g. with respect to the structural safety, see BS
8020-41 (fire) safety of the tents). Organizing parties, the fire
department and municipalities are more intensively monitoring the
structural and fire safety of tent structures larger than 25
Often much smaller profiles are used (48x86 or even smaller),
which results in deformation of the tent construction under its own
weight. The structures aims at a quick and easy assembly and
disassembly with the possibility to expand the tent structure if
needed. Additionally, all accessories, tension rods, hooks, etc.
are made of stainless steel, which in the long term maintain their
Almost all the other suppliers use usual galvanized steel for
their hospitality tents. After a period of time, they will be
damaged by corrosion.
Since we build our tents in house we can offer you a (large)
number of options for the hospitality tent:
- Instead of Ferrari 502 PVC coated polyester fabric, a tent can
be made of (lightweight) NASCAR canvas.
- Storage bags or flight cases for the sails
- Arch-shaped roof with 3D double curved roof covers
- Separable walls
- Blinding cloth for the windows that can be rolled up
- Aluminum rails and flaps on the sides of the trailer, attached
to the tent
- Draught/sealing strip with aluminum rails at the bottom of the
- Supply and installation of the (stainless steel) bracket plates
on the trailer for the rafters
- Print of the tent
