Flextents / free form tents
Buitink Technology develops and produces flex tents, also known
as free form tents, stretch tents or bedouin tents. These tent
structures are ideal for temporary or semi-permanent use.
A characteristic of the flex tents is the stretchy material of
which the membranes are made, so called free form or stretch
fabric. It is easy to make free, double curved - and therefore
stable - shapes, which are different each time (all of this with
the same membrane).
The video on this page shows the numerous possibilities of
flex tents. For almost every situation, we can create a unique and
Our flex tents are made of a two-side coated fabric and are
fully water proof. Also the welds (high frequency welded) are fully
water proof, even on the long term. Besides, welded seams guarantee
optimal strength of the flex tent, in contrary to stitched seams
having a strength of only 30-40% of the fabric itself.
Our flex tent fabric is fire retardant according to the
applicable standards for tents and coverings.
We offer two types of flexfabric: a 1-ply (270 g/ sqm) and a 2-ply
(495 g/ sqm).

Our flex fabric has a fire behavior in class M2 (NFP 92-507) and
in class B1 (DIN 4102).
Besides, the flex tent fabric of Buitink is ''washable'', which
means that also after rain or washing the fabric keeps its fire
retardant properties. This in contrary to most other flex tent
fabrics that have been impregnated with salts which will wash out
in contact with water.
Besides complete and finished flex tents, we also deliver
stretch fabric on rolls, in various colors. A minimum order is 5 m
at 1.45 m width.
