We all know that putting up your tent in the pouring rain can be an absolute nightmare and anything to make it faster and easier would be a bonus.

Inflatable air beam tents will do just that just one press of a button and hey presto your tent is up!

However as always these things come with a downside….

Over inflation can cause the bladder to burst and poorly made seams can easily split both of which can be a nightmare to fix without the right materials.  This is where Stormsure has the answer.

For burst or punctured bladders (on a smooth surface not the seam) use our TUFF tape and patches; the area can be easily sealed without any fuss and the repair will be long lasting and tough.

Like wise with the seams (almost impossible to fix using a patch). It’s really important that you use the right type of glue.  Stormsure Flexible Adhesive is perfect for such a job and will create an abrasion resistant, watertight, rubber finish that can with stand almost anything.

If you’re repairing a seam always carefully clean the parts to be glued with a solvent or alcohol.  This will remove any silicone, which was used in the manufacturing process and may have directly caused the weakness in the welded seam.
