Anti-condensation film

When warm, moist air interacts with cooler surfaces, the condensation is produced – in other words, it turns into water. This happens because the air, which cooled down from the surface cannot maintain the moisture, as the warm air does. Anti-condensation films help to reduce the amount of condensation in the room.

Anti-condensation films, also called waterproofing films, are used to protect all types of roof surfaces. Anti-condensation films are usually used for sloping roofs when insulation for cold roofs is not used as the anti-condensation film has low permeability to steam in comparison with the diffusion film, but it is particularly resistant to tearing.

Let’s start with what types of roof films are there. There are 3 types of roof films: anti-condensation film (membranes), diffusion film (membranes) and steam insulation film. The anti-condensation roof film costs from 0.30 to 0.50 euro cents per square. It is designed for installation on the rafters of the uninsulated lofts. This film is technologically outdated, it has long been replaced by a much more advanced product – the diffusion film. The price of the diffusion film is practically the same as the price of the anti-condensation membrane, but according to its characteristics it is much more advanced. The anti-condensation film does not let the steam go through from the bottom, and the diffusion membrane lets it go through – thus, the diffusion film allows the roof structure “to breathe”. What is more, the diffusion membrane protects the roof structure from condensation that forms under the roof. The price of the diffusion film ranges from 0.30 to 1.5 euro per square. The range of diffusion films is very wide, although their names are similar, but the technical parameters are very different. Therefore, there is a risk of using a diffusion film intended for walls while carrying out the roof installation. When choosing a roof film, avoid double-layer diffusion films, because they are intended specifically for walls. It is not advisable to buy the thinnest membranes. It is not recommended to choose films which are thinner than 120 microns because it is very easy to tear. The steam insulation films are designed to protect the insulation layer from the steam coming from the premises. The price of steam insulation films ranges from 0.13 to 0.5 cents per square. The use of such films is very simple: the most important thing is to seal the junctions with adhesive tape in order to ensure that the film performs its functions properly.

Ventilation of the hangar

This is the process when the utilised air is removed from the premises and it is replaced by fresh air. During this process, if there is a need or necessity, the air can be filtered, heated up or cooled down, humidified or dried. The process of air change in an enclosed space ensures:

  • addition of O2 in the air;
  • reduction of CO2 concentration;
  • removal of excess water vapor;
  • removal of air pollutants.

The simplest method for the ventilation of buildings is a natural method, when the air enters the premises through the cracks in the building, micro-ventilation openings, doors or specially designed vents. The air is removed through vertical extraction channels by the principle of natural extraction – convection, when the warmed up air rises upwards.
Another method of ventilation is mechanical. The air is supplied and removed from the premises by using ventilators.
Depending on the purpose, mechanical ventilation systems are divided into:

  • exhaust systems, which remove the utilised air;
  • supply systems, which supply outdoor air, which, if necessary, can be cleaned and heated up.

Tent hangar maintenance

It is recommended to check the following things once a year or according to your individual needs – more often:

  • The metal structure of the hangar – make sure that all screws and fittings are tightened and not loose;
  • Condition of the tent – inspect and make sure the tent is not damaged due to the changing weather conditions or extraneous factors. It is also important to check whether the tent is not loose and is still properly tense;
  • Snow load – it is important not to wait too long and remove the accumulated snow during the winter season. In case of snow accumulation, gently lift the tent of the hangar from the inside with a broom or brush (do not use sharp items or items which could damage the tent!);
  • Fastening ropes of the tent – make sure that the ropes which fasten the tent to the metal structure are properly tightened and maintain the tension of the tent.

Comparison of market hangars

As you know, there is a huge supply of hangars on the market: tent and metal, wooden structures, even inflatable. Many people make incorrect choices and there are reasons for such decisions – every seller praises his own products. As always, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

For example: hangars with metal walls are considered to be safer and more durable in comparison with tent hangars, and it is partly true. However, sometimes a sheet metal with a thickness of 0.2 – 0.3 mm is used. It shall not be considered as a serious protection of your property, as it is the same as wrapping it with a thick foil. As the saying goes: all locks are the same, the only difference being the tools used, therefore, the best way to prevent theft is the alarm or security.

Proper, high-quality sheet metal hangars are 3-4 times more expensive than the storage tents we offer. However, the market offers models of sheet metal hangars, the prices of which are the same or slightly higher. You shall pay attention to the following aspects: the frame structure, distances between arches, thickness of the pipes. Do not forget that the snow on the sheet metal will accumulate while it will simply slide down off the tent.

The other extreme – the storage tents, which are built or assembled as temporary gazebos (thin pipes are connected without screws, fixing to the ground with the simple tent poles, etc.) – such models are very cheap. But ask yourself: would you like to stay in such hangar during the snowy winter or hurricane wind?!

In this case, the advice is simple – gather as much information as you can and do not believe in just the low price or promises. It is necessary to find your balance between price, needs and quality.

The advantages of our hangars

All our models have modifications adapted to various climatic conditions. There is no universal option designed for Spain and Finland.

The relation between the price and the quality. We do not ask you to pay an inadequate price for our tents, but if we would reduce the price, then it would immediately have an impact on the quality of the product, and you, as the clients, certainly would not want that- there is always a possibility for the manufacturer to save. Moreover, we are constantly improving our products in order to avoid any problems in the future, rather than wait for them to occur.

All our products are covered by warranty and post-warranty service.

We have almost all models of tent hangars, greenhouses and container shelters in stock. The delivery will take just a few days after confirmation of the order.

Simple and fast assembly. If you want to save and build a hangar, greenhouse or a shed by yourself – we will always help you. Upon the delivery of your chosen product, we will provide you with the manual; you can find assembly photos and videos on our website, and if necessary, our specialists will always help you!

Very simple repair. If you damage the tent, you can always solder or glue it without disassembling the hangar.

If you have the necessity to move the hangar to another location, you can do it with minimal effort. This is relevant if you rent a place where the storage tent is located.

How to choose a hangar?

What to consider when choosing a tent hangar:

  • The number and size of gates;
  • Tent thickness and tent tensioning system;
  • Thickness of the frame of metal structure, distance between arches;
  • Quantity and length of anchors, fixing storage tent to the ground;
  • Reviews of other customers.
