The Bolt Lightning Protective Tent, made of ultralight materials (1,2 kg), comes in three brand new concept tents.
A few thousand people get struck by lightning every year. About 96 % of those killed and injured are people out in the open. The majority of them are people participating in outdoor activities such as hiking and camping. Many accidents in the mountains can be ascribed to the panic brought about by spectacular lightning that generates extreme fear among tourists. It is estimated that there are a few times more victims indirectly linked to discharges than those struck directly.
The tents are made of ultralight materials and thus meet the needs of those practicing many different kinds of outdoor recreation. They can be put up fast and are easy to carry around. They also protect against unfavourable weather conditions accompanying thunderstorms, for example rain and wind.
A high current generator was used to check the tent’s durability. A series of electrical discharges with different peak current values were directed at the top of the frame of poles.
