28 Jan Tips for Setting up a Glamping Business with Bell Tents
For those looking to grow an ecotourism business or join the growing popularity of businesses providing a unique outdoor glamping experience, bell tents are a low investment with little upfront infrastructure requirements. Transportable and easy to set up, our all-season bell tents conveniently create a lavishly spacious and comfortable glamping experience for modern adventures.
Canvas is a natural fibre and does need some care. The most important tip is to never pack away your tent when it is still wet. If you have to pack it away wet then make sure to unroll it first and let it dry properly before storing away for any period.
If you are planning on using your bell tent regularly, in humid conditions or setting it up permanently, we highly recommend using a waterproofing spray or liquid. This will maintain the high quality and durability of your tent and will extend it’s lifespan by adding UV stabilisation to the fabric and reducing the risk of mould and stains.
Although caring for your bell tent is extremely easy, general maintenance is necessary to keep your tent looking tip-top and to prolong the life span of the canvas.
TENT LIFE SPAN
If you look after your Psyclone Tent it should serve you for many years to come. If set up permanently its lifespan will vary slightly depending on the conditions and the maintenance you provide to your tent. As a rule we expect your tent to last over a year if set up permanently and well maintained.
Our tents are 100% waterproof on their own – however, for people who leave their tents up for long periods of time (i.e. glamping companies), we have developed specifically sized tent covers to add an extra layer of protection from all weather conditions.
Our Tent Covers are made from lightweight Ripstop fabric. These covers are 100% waterproof – keeping your tent extra dry and cooler in the summer sun. They are easy to set-up over the top of your existing bell tent and come with their own ropes and tensioners.
Psyclone Tents supplies high-quality canvas bell tents, Tuareg tents and bell tents with built-in stove jackholes. Our bell tents are available in three styles. Fixed Floor, Removable Floor and Fixed Floor with Extra Windows. We also offer three sizes, 13’FT (4M), 16’FT (5M), and 19’FT (6M).
Our bell tents are made from high-quality 340 gsm canvas to keep you warmer in winter and cooler in summer. The canvas is treated to be fire retardant and for mould resistance and the flooring is a heavy-duty 520 gsm PVC. Our tents also come with heavy-duty galvanised pegs and poles.
