Stretch Tents Cape Town, South Africa!
Is this where the modern stretch tent concept started? In Cape Town?
Nobody is quite sure!
We do know that Cape Town based South African companies are at the forefront of technologies to develop these products.
The design concept for modern day stretch tents is associated with the nomadic desert dwellers and wanderers.
This dates as far back as the Bedouin tribes of ancient Nabatea, Sinai and Mesopotamia where they used goat or camel hair to weave the tent itself.
These were supported by poles and often separated into two sections, one for entertaining and breaking bread and the other for private use.
Bedouin tents are still used today by nomadic desert tribes as they are easy to setup and derig.
They also offer much needed shade from the blistering sun and are extremely warm under the night sky, much like today’s modern day derivatives.
Stretch Tents Cape Town
Bedouin style tents are commonly known as stretch tents today and Dimensions Tent & Structures has been supplying these since 2009.
As an industry leader, not only in the Stretch Tents Cape Town market but nationwide and globally, all our tents are manufactured by us, using the latest R&D and technologies available.
We recently introduced a new stretch tent fabric to the market which offers easier maintenance and longer durability.
We have our own inhouse factory, so we are able to create custom designs and manufacture to order.
Several months ago we hosted a designer from Hungary to create something really special for a huge music and arts festival in that country.
We are also not confined to ONLY creating the familiar Bedouin style product.
This recent order from a client in Holland required us to create fifty-four custom sidewall products based purely on the measurements supplied from abroad.
Happily, every side fitted perfectly, and we had another satisfied overseas customer.
We also offer a wide range of fabrics and colours as well as company/product branding, all done inhouse to our client’s specifications.
