FREEDOM HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURING TENTS SINCE 1971
Freedom Tents are waterproof – most tent suppliers insist that no tent is waterproof.
A Freedom Tents is easy to assemble, with enough room to comfortably sleep 4-6 people. The tent can be erected in 3-5 minutes (no hidden catches!). It is built to handle all types of weather conditions. A lot of people will say that they don’t need a good quality tent because they only go camping when the weather is fine. But all it takes is one storm at 2am to regret that decision. A Freedom Tent can handle 140km/h winds and rain

‘In heavy rain, we dug trenches but the tent remained dry despite sitting in the middle of a small stream. The next morning we spoke to the others at the campsite. They all left as the rain had come through their tents…’

‘Your tent has never failed under any type of adverse condition. These are the reasons I came back to you today and purchased a second tent for the kids.’
Spring Loaded Centre Pole for Ease of Assembly and Added Stability in Heavy Wind. This means that the centre pole is not fixed but moves in unison with the wind. The result is that the buffeting effects of the wind are absorbed within the pole taking the tension off the ground pegs. Tents utilizing the spring loaded centre pole are virtually impossible to blow down. A conventional telescopic pole is rigid once the tent is pitched. Continual buffeting from the wind can result in corner pegs pulling out of the ground and the tent collapsing.
Internally Bound Floor to Wall Seams. All Freedom touring tents have the walls secured to the floor using internally sewn seams. There are two main reasons.
- Rain falling on the tent freely runs to the ground with little chance of pooling and subsequently leaking. This is a common problem when the wall and floor seams are sewn externally.
- There is no flooring material exposed to the elements. Some tent manufacturers utilise a method of extending the flooring material for about 15cms up the wall of the tent. This is known as a mud wall. This allows the sun’s ultraviolet rays to beam onto the poly or PVC type substance of the floor eventually breaking it down. There is also more stress at the point where the floor and the wall are sewn to the side of the tent, which can result in seam leakage at a later date.
Heavy Duty PVC Floor with Heat Welded Seams. The heat welding of seams increases the waterproof qualities of the tents. This means there is no stitching at ground level, avoiding seam leakage common on most tents.
Metal Chromed “D” Ring Pegging and Dual Corner Webbing. Freedom Tents feature double webbing attached to metal “D” rings at each corner. Double webbing distributes the tension between two distinct pulling lines at right angles to each other and prevents seam opening. An added benefit is that in the unfortunate event that one of the webbings should break, the tent can still be erected using the other one. The metal “D” ring is purposely designed as a “D” ring and not an “O” ring to ensure that the weight is evenly distributed, thus extending the life of the webbing.
ZIPS- Around Windows. This system is available on all the touring tents. The zips around the windows prevent dust or rain blowing in under the flaps as they close completely
Side Windows. Bringing you the comfort of ventilation.
FREEDOM TENT FEATURES:
Bradmill Canvas –this canvas is used in all our top quality touring tents. Years of experience as Australia’s leading manufacturer of tent fabrics have resulted in Bradmill’s fabric achieving the ideal balance of efficient waterproofing for the hardest conditions while allowing the fabric to breathe, for your overall comfort. “Bradmill” has a hydrostatic head test result of 400mm minimum, which is the correct balance to stop the fiercest storm from penetrating the fabric, keeping you safe and dry
Double Layered Roof- Freedom Tents are built using robust double layer 12oz and 10oz canvas roofs. This gives the tents additional strength and wearing capabilities
Insect/Reptile Proof Fully Zipped “D” Door Design with Internal Mesh Frame. The major advantage is that the “D” door allows the door to be folded to the side for ease of entry. The disadvantage of a “u” hanging door is that unless it is rolled up the door retracts entry and can be easily damaged.
