The all-new Varkala Connect 280 caravan awning is a flexible and interchangeable awning, which can be combined with the Varkala Connect system, to increase the size and living space of the awning. The Varkala 280 awning has a length of 280cm, and a width of 250cm, making it perfect for using on most caravans, due to the sizing of the awning. Furthermore the Varkala Connect uses a 420 Sentinel Pro polyester fabric, which is an incredibly double-thread ripstop fabric ideal for taking punishment from the sun, wind and rain. There are Left and Right Connect extensions available, allowing you to extend the awning from either side.

  • Left hand or Right hand extensions available (see bundles below)
  • Diamond Clear windows let lots of light into awning

Hydrostatic Head (mm) 6000
Details

Hydrostatic Head (Tents) – a waterproof rating for technical fabrics measured in mm. The higher the rating the more waterproof the fabric is. A rating of 1500mm is deemed waterproof, but on a tent, look for a rating of 3000 or higher. Measured by the height of water column a fabric weave can take before it begins to “sweat”. “Polycotton” tents will not have a Hydrostatic Head level, as they are not treated for waterproofing.

Colour Violet Grey
Berth No
Details

Berth – This shows the number of people that the tent can sleep within the inner tents of a model of tent, in line with the industry standard. Normal procedure is to look for a slightly larger tent, for example, a family of four usually purchase a five or six berth tent, to give added room and comfort.

Details

Polyester – a synthetic fibre, made from polymer units to create a textile fabric. Polyester is the most popular fabric for tent manufacturing, as it is durable, reliable and lighter in weight. Polyester does not breathe though, which creates more condensation.

Polycotton - a blend of polyester and cotton, primarily cotton (usually around 65% cotton / 35% polyester split). Polycotton is a more natural fabric for camping, as it is breathable, far more durable material, reducing the effects of condensation. Offers greater versatility in hot and cold climates.

Ripstop Nylon – a durable material used in tents which is strong and repairable due to its Ripstop properties.
