Geodesic Inflatable Tent

Geodesic Inflatable Tent

Based on the specific molecular and crystal structure of the diamond, Heimplanet has introduced ‘Mavericks’, a multi-purpose tent designed for extreme conditions. It offers an internal height of two meters and more then 13 square meters of space, the Mavericks tent incorporates inflatable diamond grid (IDG) technology and a multi chamber safety system. after inflation, the structure can be separated into ten individual air chambers to ensure an emergency stability in case of a defect. the special geodesic structure has been developed to withstand high wind speeds up to 180km/h, and is pre-assembled so it can easily be set up by an individual.

The airbeams are built with a resistant double-layer construction: an extra airtight TPU (thermoplastic urethane) bladder keeps the air inside for a long time. an outer jacket made of a high-tenacity polyester fabric ensures extra stability, protection and durability.

The multi chamber safety system enables users to inflate the entire air frame (IDG) in just one single step. once it is blown up, the air frame can be divided into separate sections, which ensures  stability in the event that a part becomes damaged.
