This made Mangkhut the strongest storm to strike the island of Luzon since Typhoon Megi in 2010, and the strongest nationwide since Typhoon Haiyan in 2013.’.
The tent’s survival is testimony to a great team effort between Freeform® as a stretch tent manufacturer and the designer/installers, Event Canopies Asia, who design permanent and semi-permanent solutions to cover space with membrane lightweight structures.
As the manufacturing pioneers of stretch tents, Freeform® has consistently set the standard in the development of high-quality stretch tent fabrics and fabrication methods.
Our premium stretch tent fabric is recommended for large rental tents and semi-permanent structures. This fabric is the the result of extensive development and research to deliver a super-strong, highly durable, fire-compliant stretch fabric for our commercial, rental, and custom-fit markets worldwide.
Slightly heavier than other stretch fabric it provides for a more stable option for larger structures and also offers the highest tensile strength in our range.
This is the second typhoon that this 600m2 custom-fit stretch tent has survived in the last 2 years. Its survival comes down to our quality manufacturing coupled with clever design and a solid installation.
Investment in our premium stretch fabric and quality stretch tent manufacturing pays off
