To live outside for a long time requires heat. Not to mention the security of being able to get warm, should the accident happen.
There are different ways to get heat, one is to use an open fire or another way is to use a stove.
NORTENT has chosen to develop and manufacture its tents with the possibility of using a stove. So called hottent
Today, NORTENT offers two stoves, a lightweight titanium stove and a stainless steel stove.
Why not have the possibility of an open fire in the tent as some other manufacturers have?
It is a relevant question, part of it is that smoke spreads in the tent if you use an open fire and in addition there are greater risks with an open fire than in a stove.
Stove in a tent, does it sound dangerous?
There are always risks with fire inside a tent, whether it is from a stove or a gas stove. However, high demands are placed on the tent being well adapted to be used together with a stove
What do you mean by well adapted to use the stove in a tent?
It is easy to throw on a chimney feed-through or take up a hole in the tent fabric for the chimney. But all tents and placements of the implementation, are NOT suitable for using a stove. NORTENT tests its tents very carefully with regard to whether it is possible to use a stove and where the best location for the stove is. All with safety in mind
- Comes complete with all accessories
- Substantial increase in the material (long durability)
- Nested pipe
- Fits most stove tents
- Robust and stylish design
Titanium is a perfect substance for making stoves that are light but at the same time very robust and durable.
But even if it is possible to make lighter stoves, it will be at the expense of something, e.g. durability, functionality or safety. An important consideration is the thickness of the material, this will affect things like durability, resistance to warping and robustness. Material that is too thin sacrifices something, thicker material increases the weight.
NORTENTS Titanium stove
- Glazed windows on three sides
- Displacement of the chimney (easier to use several pans at the same time)
- Reinforcements at top and bottom to minimize warping
- Packs flat in practical storage/carry bags
- Double Spark Protection (With the Extra Top Hat)
- Storage shelves that can be used as grill grates (converted to a grill)
- Slightly larger dimensions (Larger wood supply = longer burning time and you get up to 39 cm of wood)
Titanium Vs Steel
- Titanium is completely non-toxic and without risks for living organisms
- Steel is more powerful but wears out faster than titanium
- Titanium is not affected by extreme heat / cold
- Does not rust / oxidize
- 45 % lighter than steel
- Melting point: Titanium 1668 °C, Stainless steel 1375 – 1530 °C
- Gives radiant heat quite directly / cooling takes place quickly thanks to the thin thickness
Let's talk about SECURITY when it comes to using a stove in a tent.
Why is it NOT appropriate to use a stove in all tents?
The tent, the stove and its design must be manufactured so that dangerous situations do not arise. To name a few dangerous situations that have occurred when you have used a stove in your tent.
- The chimney has bent from the wind
- The tent canvas has caught fire
- Rod/rods have given way due to heat development
- Carbon monoxide has spread in the tent
- Burns to people/equipment
- Sleeping system/equipment has caught fire
- Soot fire
- The hatch has opened
- The stove has given way
These are some things that have happened that we have seen and read about on the internet. All of this can be avoided by the tent and stove manufacturer knowing and understanding these risks. It takes time, understanding and extensive field testing to be able to minimize these risks.
It is NOT for NOT, NORTENT is one of the leading companies in the world in developing and manufacturing tents designed to be used together with stoves
NORTENT can test their tents up to 9 months in the field before releasing them on the market, to ensure safety.
