3.12 sealed tent camping tent that has either the groundsheet sewn to the flysheet to form a sealed enclosed area or a camping tent with a snowskirt (3.13) Note 1 to entry: Camping tents with snowskirts are not normally sealed tents but there is the possibility of snow or sand building up on these snowskirts which can restrict air circulation creating a sealed tent. Note 2 to entry: The use of a sealed tent can result in a build-up of harmful gases. 3.13 snowskirt fabric attached to the lower edge of the tent flysheet which is usually designed to sit horizontally on the ground Note 1 to entry: This can be covered with snow, or have rocks placed upon it, in order to secure the camping tent to the ground. 4?

22.214.171.124.3 Inner tent material When tested in accordance with ISO 6941:2003, Procedure A (using a 10 s ignition time, face ignition), no marker threads shall be severed, there shall be flaming debris on no more than 2 of the tested samples, there shall be no flame to either vertical edge of the test specimen, no single sample shall show after-flame exceeding 20 s, with an average after-flame time not exceeding 12 s. Should a single sample fail, the test shall be repeated once more and if the fabric fails a second time then the fabric is deemed to have failed the test. 126.96.36.199.4 Groundsheet When tested in accordance with ISO 6925, the radius of burn shall be less than 35 mm. 6.1.2 Ground fastening At least one ground fastening shall be provided for each corner or four ground fasteners as a minimum if the camping tent is not rectangular. 6.1.3 Protective measures Points on the ground-sheet which are in contact with frame parts shall be suitably protected. 6.1.4 Ventilation 188.8.131.52 General In order to reduce the risk of suffocation camping tents shall be designed to maintain a circulation of air and minimise the opportunity for a build-up of harmful gases to dangerous levels within the sleeping areas.
