Tent Safety / Precautions
Under no circumstance will Florida Tent Supply/Carpa Supply be held responsible for honoring any manufacturer's warranty, replacement or payment of any product listed on this website, or payment of any damage or liability claims resulting from use or consequence of products listed on this website, especially if it involves liabilities or damage to any product or property resulting from a wind event, wind whip, snow accumulation on tent, improper installation, lightning strikes, hail storms, etc. or prior use out in the field (see "Tent Safety" below).
Florida Tent supply/Carpa Supply products are of superior design and function best in the parameters of these guidelines. It is IMPERATIVE that these guidelines and tent installation instructions supplied are carefully read and COMPLETELY FOLLOWED. Please read these “Tent Safety” guidelines before the installation or removal of any tent.
- The installer is solely responsible for the evaluation of the site and determining the proper securing method. Some soils require different staking or securing other than what is provided with the tent or purchased by the customer. Our responsibility is limited to the construction of the tent and not damage due to installation. Damaged frame parts or fittings are usually caused by improper lifting of the frame and are not covered under the terms of the warranty.
- Installation during threatening weather conditions is not advised under any circumstances. It is the responsibility of the tent installer/maintainer to determine the severity of the weather and utmost care must be used. This product is to be used as a temporary structure. In any questionable weather conditions (high winds exceeding 30 MPH, any possible snow accumulation on tent, abnormal wind gusts exceeding 30 MPH, tornado warnings, hail storms, lightning, etc.) evacuation and disassembly of the tent is recommended; and all valuable merchandise should be removed from under the tent immediately. Use good judgment, common sense and safety during take-down of the tent.
- Due to shifting of the tent frame, loosening of the stakes or loosening buckles, it is possible for the cover to “pocket” water in rain conditions. It is imperative to continually inspect the frame and cover for proper fit and alignment and adjust as required.
- Proper safety equipment should be used at all times to insure a safe installation and take down. Careful evaluation should be made to determine if hard hats, steel toe shoes, safety glasses and any other equipment should be used for the safe and proper installation. Tent lifts or other equipment might be considered for lifting or take down.
