Happy Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday!

I hope that you are all enjoying the week as the holiday rush comes to a close, and with any luck will finally able to settle down and take a few minutes to relax and enjoy some quiet time.
One of the most frequent questions that I get asked almost daily is specific to the frame option's within our tents. And many of you seem to be interested in knowing how to choose the best steel option for your location. So I’ll answer that very simply and efficiently for you. 

We have 3 options to choose from. Choice 1, our most inexpensive choice, Is the galvanized mild steel frame. This option is best for all sites that are not susceptible to higher humidity levels. The mild steel frame is perfect for dryer locations such as: Arizona, USA. Central, Mexico. and most countries in Africa. 

The next grade of steel that we offer for each of our 30+ designs would be the 304 s/s. This is the mid range steel option which is less prone to rusting than the mild steel frame. Which make's this choice perfectly equipped to handle more wet/tropical locations such as Belize, and Costa Rica, along with most of Europe, and Asia’s countries. We do strongly recommend for extra peace of mind and to ensure the longevity of the tent, for less dry locations such as the jungle or rain forest, that clients source locally a rust resistant paint compound. This should be applied periodically or every few years. The latest blog covers in great detail the whole suggested process.

Our last option which is our marine grade steel is the 316 S/s frame and is perfectly equipped for most coastal areas, Including The California Cost, Hawaii, or The Bahamas. The 316 s/s is the most weather resistant, least prone to rusting, and is the highest grade steel that we offer. This is a must for all tent sites that will be in close proximity to the ocean. 

I hope that this helped clarify the different options that we offer, and made it clearer which steel choice is most appropriate for your area.

Cheers to the end of the 2014 year and I hope that each and everyone of you have a safe and enjoyable New Years.

Tips for Tents

September is right around the corner and yet again the summer has come and gone. It seems that time flies by quicker and quicker with each passing week and with fall closing in, this weeks blog is dedicated to all of our current clients. Everything from your personal health to your families home regardless of the structure require maintenance. And to ensure you get the longest life possible out of your tented retreat proper care is absolutely a must.
         A general rule of thumb to keeping your tent in tip top shape is to run through a visual inspection on a weekly if not daily basis. Observing changes and or irregularities are a must. Ensuring all fabrics are constantly under proper tension and are not becoming baggy, as well as keeping your eyes peeled for any markings such as mold,dirt,or dust will save you a lot of trouble down the road.
        All the fabrics should be under constant tension at all times. Should the fabric become loose and start flapping in the wind, damage may occur to the canvas as well as the frame. However there is a delicate balance between not enough and just the right amount of tensioning. It is also suggested that the tent’s outer canvas be wiped down with a soft sponge and light soap solution to keep the canvas clean and clear of dirt. The tents canvas, along with the windows storm flaps should be sponged down at least once every month or two. 
        We also offer a type of water base paint which we call “canvas compound”  This compound is a concentrate, and is mixed with water and best applied with a soft paintbrush. generally applied every 1-3 years.

        Its important to protect your one of a kind investment and with following these few tips your tent's will last you a lifetime. Living under canvas has never before been able to properly merge luxury and the beauty of nature Until now! With Exclusive Tents ‘The World Is Our Canvas’.

Blog Part 4 of 5 Reasons why Exclusive Tents is right for you.

Blog Part 4 of 5 Reasons why Exclusive Tents is right for you.

Its true… No destination is off limits when you have an Exclusive Tent.  A few details that should never be forgotten when designing a luxury resort are that ‘privacy' and 'views' are two of the most important features to individuals seeking an experience and looking to escape the ‘real world’ for a few days. We all know that when purchasing a home or business property that location is huge. One resort that perfectly combined the environment along with our designs to reach the ultimate secluded yet glamorous getaway is Minaret Station in New Zealand.

Location,Location,Location: Your tented retreat deep in the jagged peaks of the Southern Alps above Lake Wanaka is nothing short of an adventure from the beginning. Helicopter is the only way to and from the resort as well as your only glimpse to some of the most scenic parts of the South Island. "We want our guests to share all of the aspects of the Southern Alps that meant so much to us growing up in this special environment,” Matt (the director of tourism for the station) says. "Whether that be the change in the pure mountain breezes, waking up along with local wildlife, or soaking in the sounds of the nearby river entering the boulder-strewn gorge on its way down to the lake. In these tented suites, you experience the magic of the high country.” The largest perk in having an Exclusive Tent is that much like camping you feel well connected to, and are able to become one with the surroundings, instead of feeling isolated and secluded while inside your room.

Whether you want a private island paradise or your own tree top retreat in the jungle, Exclusive Tents International can make your great idea a reality. ‘The world is our canvas’ and raising the bar in what is possible is our specialty.

Investments: We have all heard that it takes money to make money. Especially for starting your own resort. Within your typical small business setting it takes roughly 3-5 years on average to start turning profit. Now, instead of waiting years to make the return on your initial investment (ROI) there is Exclusive Tents International. Living under canvas is nothing short of an experience and an experience is what people expect when its comes to their accommodations. With the rapidly growing glamping and green living industry we have come to prove that the concept of luxury alternative accommodations are not only a fan favorite over the more typical resorts, but that people are willing to pay more for the experience our tents provide. Due to their attractive nature, along with their carefully chosen locations, clients of Exclusive Tents on an average have been charging $1200 per room, per night. Kasbah Tamadot, one of the more well known resorts we were apart of, is a prime example of a high end resort that has made back there investment very quickly. With having 9 tents total and an average room rate of $1200 per night… You get the point.

However 4 Rivers Floating Lodge is more than your dream retreat. The real beauty is the unique experience this resort offers to clients. Exclusive Tent's designs along with the carefully crafted features of the floating deck enables the resort to relocate as they wish.

Exclusive Tent's withstanding the test of time.

Happy July!

As a consumer living in the 21st century it seems that we're constantly bombarded by fast paced marketing gimmicks, and sold over priced products that are designed quickly and inexpensively to be out of date or unusable with in a few years. Too often companies are taking this 'fast food' approach and are more concerned with the quantity showing complete disregard for the quality of there product. Here at Exclusive Tents, we take a more wholesome approach focusing on quality, durability, and customer satisfaction. We believe in giving you what you pay for.
Currently we have clients that have had their tents standing for 17+ years. One question that is often asked is, what kind of wear and tear is common amongst our tents? Exclusive Tents unique designs are created in such a way that you will never have to completely replace the entire tent at once(except in the rare case of a natural disaster of course). If you find a component on the tent that needs replacing, you're able to remove the individual piece and replace it with ease at a very low cost.
Whether your thinking about establishing a 5 star resort or wish to create an eco friendly structure at your families favorite vacation spot, we want to provide you with trust and comfort in knowing that your perfect structure will be around for many years to come.

Sinya on Lone Man Creekin Austin Texas

Check out this amazing aerial footage taken @ Sinya on Lone Man Creekin Austin Texas. It features the Bububu Tent which is one of our more popular designs.

"When 5 stars just isn't enough"

"When 5 stars just isn't enough"

This weeks blog is going to be geared towards something completely different than normal. We want to take the time and express the essence of what motivates us to create the most durable, beautiful, and desired tents in the world. On a regular basis we're asked to compare our tents' performance against other fabric structures and even whether or not an Exclusive Tent can hold its own when placed up against other conventional living structure's. Rather than breaking this down and comparing engineering strengths of this material vs. that metal blah blah blah, we thought it would be more fun to approach this from a more personal and passionate point of view.

Travelers no longer want to stay in boxy rooms with yellow dim lighting that completely isolates them from the destination they spent so long traveling to reach. The concept of brick and mortar style buildings being the only way to experience luxury is an out dated concept. Travelers want to bond with their destinations and create a long lasting experience. The saying 'less is more' seems simple, but that concept is what truly inspires us here at Exclusive Tents. We aspire to make tents that connect you with your destination and the environment on a more personal level. Don't hide from environment, embrace it!

In short, do we make the best tents in the world? Yes!
Do we do it with passion and innovation? Yes!
Are they better than normal structures? We think so :)

Normally we're the once's answering the questions, but for this week we want to ask you something: Are you ready to settle for " Normal " OR is " Living Under Canvas " just what you and your guests have been longing for?

Aluminum V Steel

Happy May!

The weekend is here yet again, and this year seems to be flying by very quickly. I hope that you are all just as excited to see what the rest of the year may hold as we are. 

There are many different materials that have been used to frame tents throughout time, and I thought I would do a blog on a topic that seems to be a growing concern with the rise of glamping resorts as of the past few years. "You pay for what you get" is something very true in the tent industry, and Exclusive Tents with being the worlds leader in canvas structures chooses only steel framing vs other such materials like aluminum and here is why. 

First and foremost no frame is more durable than steel. It can ding, scratch, dent, and even bend and still retain structural integrity. When cared for steel frames can last a lifetime.

The same isn't true for aluminum. Aluminum is more brittle, so it's more susceptible to failure through fatigue and damage. A single dent in the wrong place could render an aluminum frame unsafe and useless. And when aluminum fails, it fails catastrophically.

We use high quality steel frames for the same reason every high-end contractor uses steel to build custom homes and buildings. There are no sky scrapers or large custom houses that use aluminum for structural integrity. This is because aluminum does not meet a high enough standard in quality or reliability.

We have done extensive research on aluminum framing for our tents, but after years of research and testing in laboratories and in the field we have definitively found aluminum to be substandard in comparison.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to check out www.exclusivetents.com to see what life under canvas is all about.

Vertical wood poles

Hey All,
I hope you are all enjoying your Monday. We have been getting a lot of questions regarding our framing options recently so I decided to write this weeks blog surrounding that topic. More specifically the benefits of using vertical wood poles instead of a stainless steel frame. I have listed some pros and cons of both below.
Generally our tents are composed of a steel framed structure. We have a few different options to choose from including mild steel, 304 S/s and 316 S/s. You definitely want to go with a S/s option in any area that is prone to higher humidity or where rusting may be an issue. Another Benefit of choosing to go with the steel frame is that there is much more play room during the set up of the tent than if you were to use wooden poles. The steel poles get bolted into the floor and can be adjusted slightly to properly accommodate the tent and have much more room for error once placed than the wooden poles.
If local timber is available near the location of your tent site, you may want to consider going with a vertical wood pole setup. The benefits of having vertical wood poles are not only that it is very esthetically pleasing to ones eyes, it also increases the overall structural integrity of the tents. It is important to note that even when choosing to go with the vertical wood poles the roof framing will still be a steel framed structure. We also suggest choosing to go with the vertical wood poles in areas that are prone to harsher wind conditions. One of the down sides to wooden poles are that it is necessary to have a proper and confident carpenter on hand and in the area. Once the poles are in there and bolted down through the decking for maximum performance they are a lot harder to adjust than the steel poles. So it is important to make sure that the measurements are correct prior to setting the wooden beams into place. We are able to supply the vertical wood poles for you, but it generally benefits the client to obtain the wood locally. We will be able to provide you with the dimensions needed for the poles.
Go ahead and take a look at the pics below which show the difference between the vertical wood poles and the steel frame options.

Another Segment in which we will answer questions directly from clients of ours, in order to "shed some light" on matters which may be unclear to those who are in the beginning phases of creating a tented paradise.

Dear Exclusive Tents,

We will use all LED lights in the rooms and facility. Do you have any good examples showing how other clients have installed lights in the ceiling or upper reaches of their tents?

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your valued inquiry. I do see that you have questions geared towards the lighting fixtures and process involved when you are considering establishing your own tented structure. So below I have provided some helpful tips to effectively mount lighting fixtures to the interior of the tents.

Lighting the interior of the tents can be tricky and must be done strategically. Generally most clients run wiring through the tent's framing (steel poles), and run it to the apex of the frame and then down through the body where you would then be able to mount lighting (recessed lights works great). LED lighting seems to be a perfect match when done properly for the inside of the tent and definitely touches home with the overall ambiance. This can be done well by running LED ribbon lighting between the canvas roof and the inner liner along where they meet the tent walls. ANOTHER idea that goes hand in hand with the ribbon lighting is to actually mount recessed lights on the floor in corners. The recessed lighting should be pointed strategically with the most desired locations hidden behind furniture, with the lighting pointed towards the wall to help accentuate the flow of the canvas.

These tips should help you bring proper lighting to the interior of your tent in a way that adds to the "living under canvas" feel instead of the more conventional methods.

Don't forget to check out our web site for any other questions you may have or simply to view pictures of past clients projects.

Hey All

Hey All,

For those who celebrate, we hope you had a safe and enjoyable holiday to start the week off, and are looking forward to the weekend that lay ahead.

This weeks blog will be geared more towards properly blending the tent site and surrounding environment with the exterior of the tent.
Specifically highlighting how to choose the best canvas color option for your tent.

Don't forget to check out our web site for: updates on recent projects, pictures, and answers to frequently asked questions that will help you make your tented resort project a reality. (www.exclusivetents.com)

When it comes to selecting the right color option's for your tent, it may not seem like a tough decision that requires lots of thought. However it should not be taken lightly. Choosing the right color option can either help merge the tent with the surroundings. Or it can accentuate and really enable the tents to stand out and "pop" from rest of the property. The choice is yours.
The lighter more "earthy" options (sand,coconut) would most definitely blend in best with the coastal / desert environments. This would be ideal for clients who would prefer to have there tents seamlessly merge with the surroundings. Enabling yourself to become virtually incognito to the untrained eye if one wishes. Or if you were to choose one of the brighter more prominent colors (olive, jungle green) to be placed in the same environment, It would really allow for the tent to "stand out" from the rest of the area. This has been useful to clients who are surrounded by conventional structures with no other means of standing out aside from the tent itself. It can offer a totally different feel and appeal to those who may not have noticed or been paticularily interested in the property if it had blended in with the rest of the surroundings.

We offer a few different canvas color options to choose from ranging between: olive, jungle green, sand, or coconut. We also offer specialty colors ranging from navy blue to grey with larger orders.

There you have it. Another reason why every little detail that goes into your tent is just as important as the envisioned overall project.
A tent brings us closer to our primordial selves in a way that no other structure can do and ultimately enhances the experience of living in luxury at the same time.

Life Is Better Under Canvas,

The Serengeti Tent

Whether you in-vision a safari style tent hidden deep with in the heart of Africa, or a lake house overlooking the rolling green hills of New Zealand. The Serengeti Tent design comes with many unique features that allow for it to merge perfectly with any environment.

The Serengeti tent is unique because it has a bunch of different options enabling you to determine how big or small you would like it to be. Say you would like a porched area, we can do that. Or if you want a bathroom in there, we can do that too. With the different sizes available we can accommodate and build something that will fit anyones needs. 

The smallest version of the Serengeti is the 4 Leg. The overall footprint of the tent is 16.7' x 20.7', or 6.3m x 5.1m. Within that frame, you can put different sized canvas bodies inside of them. Below I have included what bodies work best with the 4 Leg Serengeti:

11 feet 6 inches x 15 feet (4.6m x 3.5m) 
11 feet 6 inches x 17 feet (5.2m x 3.5m) 
11 feet 6 inches x 19 feet 4 inches (5.9m x 3.5m)

Next in line is the 5 Leg Serengeti. The overall footprint of the tent is 16.7' x 27.5', or 8.4m x 5.1m. Below I have included the body sizes that will work within the 5 Leg Serengeti frame.

11 feet 6 inches x 15 feet (4.6m x 3.5m) 
11 feet 6 inches x 17 feet (5.2m x 3.5m) 
11 feet 6 inches x 19 feet 4 inches (5.9m x 3.5m)
11 feet 6 inches x 21 feet 7 inches (6.6m x 3.5m)

The 6 Leg Serengeti is the largest design that we offer for this style. The overall footprint of the 6 Leg Serengeti is 16.7' x 34.4', 10.5m x 5.1m. Below I have listed the possible body sizes for this design:

11 feet 6 inches x 15 feet (4.6m x 3.5m) 
11 feet 6 inches x 17 feet (5.2m x 3.5m) 
11 feet 6 inches x 19 feet 4 inches (5.9m x 3.5m)
11 feet 6 inches x 21 feet 7 inches (6.6m x 3.5m)

If you leave enough space, we can add 2 meters, roughly 6.6 ft, to the back of the Serengeti for a bathroom. However, if you take up too much space, you'll lose out on your veranda area. 

The Serengeti option is the most customizable design that we offer. With all of possible outcomes, this design is one of our most unique!

Don't forget to check out our website(www.exclusivetents.com) for any other questions you may have regarding our top designs, as well as many other frequently asked questions that you may find helpful.

Happy February!

Happy February!

We hope that each of you enjoyed your weekend and are looking forward to the week that lay ahead.

Recently we have been asked some questions that seem to be a great topic for discussion when one is thinking of pursuing a life under canvas and becoming submersed in the beauty of nature. Please keep in mind that we are more than happy to answer any and all questions that each and every one of you may have. Simply send us a message via Facebook or from our website directly (www.exclusivetents.com) and we will get back to you right away.

Many clients in the past have asked what the best way to go about "insect proofing" the tents and decking would be. As with any type of outdoor dwelling it is wise to learn what wild animals, reptiles, amphibians or insects may be present on the property. This will also help determine how to keep the tents, as well as guests safe. It is better to have the knowledge of these creatures than to not have it. Not only is it a way of knowing the existence of such creatures, but can also be a great asset and incorporated into planning. This will also give you an idea on how high the decking will need to be off of the ground to avoid any interference with guests. With the design of our tents, the canvas walls each have a PVC sleeve located at the bottom. You then take the square tubing, which is provided, and fill all of the PVC sleeves. You then drill through the square tubing into the your foundation, which is built on site. This then creates a seal that keeps out the insects and etc. For extra protection you can also then go over the seal with caulking all along the sides of the tent if necessary. Another great solution was shown in a recent trip to one of our tents. The client has raised the tent onto a 12' wooden base where the wall then meets the floor creating an additional seal and some extra precaution against water and insects as such. ( see picture below). Generic insect sprays are also another great simple solution for the perimeter of the tent and decking area.

There are some easy solutions to merging your tent with the environment and helping protect keep out unwanted visitors.

Happy Monday!

Tips For Tents

Tips For Tents

Happy Tuesday!

Hey all, we hope that each of you had a relaxing and enjoyable beginning to the week.
Below is another segment of our blog dedicated to those who already own some of our Exclusive Tents, or to those who are interested in creating their own tented dwelling sometime in the near future.

Please feel free cheek out our web sitewww.exclusivetents.com or to email us directly at mail@exclusivetents.com for any questions you may have.

This weeks "Tips For Tents" was inspired by a recent trip to visit a Mambrrr Tent that was set up in one of the most beautiful, and secluded jungle locations we have ever seen.

Recently we have had a few clients who asked what our secret methods are in creating the most efficient lighting that will create the perfect ambiance for both inside and outside the tent. This week we will focus on the interior.

There are many different ways that we have found to most effectively integrate both natural lighting, as well as the perfect amount of artificial lighting in the tents. One of the main points to keep in mind when beginning to create your dwelling is that lighting inside the tent should be done creatively. Creative lighting would effectively compliment the tent, but at the same time would do so by avoiding any directly light glaring in ones eyes. LED lighting seems to be a perfect match when done properly for the inside of the tent and definitely touches home with the overall ambiance. Another method we have found to be quite successful for clients has been to install recessed lighting throughout the foundation of the tent. The recessed lighting should be pointed strategically with the most desired locations hidden behind furniture, with the lighting pointed towards the wall to help accentuate the flow of the canvas and unique features of our fabric. With the most efficient projected lighting it will not only provide the appropriate light to the area, but will also merge the tents beauty with the natural surrounding environment. The overall lighting of the tent is something that you want to completely and thoroughly plan out prior to the set up of your tent. Preferably even have the entirety of the electrical wiring ran through either the decking or the steel framing components of the tents.

I hope that this was insightful and informative to those of you who are interested in owning an Exclusive Tent or designing your own eco friendly retreat one day.
