Development of Buitink Technology
Flex Tents never ends. Continuously we are
engaged in searching for innovations and enhancements to create more versatile and
attractive tents. Our
chalenge is always to make our product better then before.
E.g. the development of extremely strong mast-tops:
We do tensile tests to find new welding methods and to check
and improve the existing ones. In this
way Buitink Technology developed
welding methods with high quality
standards, e.g. our welded eyes.
In the video below you can see
that in a tensile test the welded eye remains intact,
even under high tensile strength:
We managed to develop a high quality welding method for the Flex
Tents. By increasing the tensile strength in the tensile test, the
welded seam appears not to weaken the fabric. Even better: the
welded seam proves to be the strongest part of the test sample.
In order to connect Flex Tents we have developed a gutter. The
purpose of the gutter is both visual and to improve comfort:
it helps to remove any rainwater.
The video below shows how easily the gutter can be
