A Dutch camping tent company produces, distributes and sells tents made from a special heat-blocking Polyester/Nylon material to block the heat inside the tent. It seeks an European partner for production of these tents under a manufacturing agreement.



A Dutch start-up company that makes camping tents, designs rather fast, and gives a high degree of customization to customers. The company prefers to search preferably for a European partner to produce these tents under a manufacturing agreement, but other countries outside the EU can also make an expression of interest.

The company is using a special heat-blocking Polyester/Nylon material to block the heat inside the tent. This material is used for consumer tents, but the company is also looking to expand this to a line for refugee tents. The weight of such a refugee tent should be less than 30 KG.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
- The tent uses a special aluminium coating which reflects up to 90% of sunlight. The coating prevents the tent from absorbing infrared light, which is the light frequency responsible for heating up the tent to uncomfortable temperatures. - The tent stays much cooler than conventional tents: at an ambient temperature of 25 ºC or 77ºF regular tents will heat up to 41ºC or 105ºF, while this tent stays a comfortable 27ºC or 80ºF.
