How to determine the fixation in the ground or ballasting
Category: Tips and Stuff
How many ballast (concrete blocks) do you install to replace the fixing in the ground?
A ballast by post is necessary. For example, for a 3 x 3 m folding tent, the standard in France is 70 kg / pole. For a 10 x 15 m structure with a lateral height of 3 m, an average of 1.129 tonnes per post is required. Please see our table to study your requirements.
Therefore the use of concrete blocks to replace the anchor will require one or more additional transports as well as a forklift.
These values are important and the variation between the different manufacturers of metal-textile framework, bamboo tent and stretch tent is around 5%.
