AirBeam Tents - A Brief Guide To What Makes Them Different
AirBeam Tents - are tents that essentially no longer have conventional hard metal poles to give them structure, but instead use fabric beams into which air is pumped to make them rigid. You should note that different terminology is used by the different brands.
  • Vango - AirBeam Frames that use airpoles
  • Kampa - Air Tents that use airframe poles.
  • Outwell - Air Tents that use inflatable tubes
Advantages - the main advantages are the substantial reduction in weight and the ease of putting the tent or awning up and taking it down. Other advantages include single person pitching and superior performance of airbeams when compared to conventional poles. For Airbeam Awnings there is the additional advantage that the attached vehicle is less likely to get damaged.

What is an airbeam? - The way the airbeam is made and how it is fitted to the tent will vary from brand to brand, but in general it will have both an inner and an outer sleeve. The outer sleeve will typically be made of a tough nylon ripstop material and the inner tube will be a tough plastic. The air is pumped into the inner tube making it rigid. Typically, there are sleeves on the tent which house the airbeams.
