New Water Ballast Barrels Optimize the Stability of the X-GLOO Event Tents

The company Skywalk has developed a new stabilisation system for its X-GLOO Event Tent in addition to the existing ballasting elements: The new Water Ballast Barrels ensure the secure positioning of the inflatable lightweight tent, especially on solid surfaces like asphalt or concrete. The water ballast is suitable for all X-GLOO sizes from 4x4 meters to 8x8 meters.

The new Water Ballast Barrels have a diameter of 46 cm and hold a maximum of 80 liters of water. Two backflow valves provide the necessary pressure equalization while filling. The ballast barrels can be filled by one person within just a few minutes. Four welded and sewn handles make transport simple for two people. The barrells can also be tipped on their edge and rolled into position.

Up to three barrels can be used on each tube of the X-GLOO. When using one or two barrels per tube, the barrels are connected directly to the grommet on the outside of the tube using a shackle. When using three barrels per tube, the No-rub mat is used as an anchoring point between the tubes and barrels. The number of barrels required depends on the windspeeds at the tent setup location.

A special feature of the new accessories: the water ballast barrels serve as a functional stabilisation element and trendy seating as well! Skywalk has designed a custom cover for the ballast barrels according to the same material and design standards as the X-GLOO premium tents.

„The ballast barrel cover can also be printed with the clients logo“, according to Everhard Uphoff, Head of Marketing und Sales of X-GLOO Germany. „The personalized tents get a new attention-getting accessory in the extraordinary X-GLOO-style“.

The water ballast barrells are available alone or with optional cover and no-rub mat.
