Thermal Performances
Preliminay Remarks
According to the "abacus of the zones of thermal comfort" (sources: Service de Sante des Armees. Standards of the American Society of Heating and Ventilating Engineers), the optimal thermal comfort zone, both physiologically and psychologically, corresponds to temperatures approximately 10oC below the amboent temperature. Indeed, the camouflage and thermal moderation, blind, developed by SAINT FRERES CONFECTION, reduces the sunrays' force by 83%.


  •   Sunshine 1,000 watts per m2
  •   ground surface of the tent 35 m2
  •   without the SAINT FRERES CONFECTION sunblind, contribution by sun radiation on the ten amounts to 33,600 W
  •   with the SAINT FRERES CONFECTION sunblind, contribution by sun radiation on the tent amount to 5,712 W of which 50% (2.856 W) will be absorbed,   resulting in a reduction of 30.7 KW of the force due to sun radiation


  •   a reduction by 10° C of the temperature by simply using the blind.

  •   a substantial reduction of the need for air-conditioning capacity and electric power to further reduce the temperature.
