A comparative study to assist humanitarian workers in selecting suitable textile materials

Lots of cladding materials are available on the market, each with their specific properties. This study compared 10 cladding materials from the humanitarian sector and the camping sector.
The tests were not only done on the fabric but also the influence of some cladding materials on a whole tent setting was evaluated. This booklet presents the pros and cons of each of these materials.
