Multi Chamber Safety System
with 3 chambers

The Multi Chamber Safety System offers an emergency stability in case of a defect and ensures an easy repair/replacement of parts of the IDG – the Inflatable Diamond Grid.

Interior Pockets
Interior Pockets help to organize your equipment inside the tent.

The Wedge is the inflatable 2 person tent from Heimplanet. During the design process we focused on intuitive handling, quick and easy set-up and the best possible wind stability.
The inflatable geodesic frame, we call it the Inflatable Diamond Grid – IDG, offers an emergency stability thanks to the patented Multi Chamber Safety System. In case of a defect the air frame can be repaired easily. The design impresses with a much reduced weight and a small pack size. Therefore The Wedge becomes the right choice for backpacking and touring where light weight and small packing size is required.

The result is a comfortable geodesic 2 person tent, that offers a lot of space and surprises with its easy handling and a great stability. Unroll, inflate and welcome home!

Roof Design
The center of the tent becomes an additional supporting point. This allows the formation of a star-shaped roof. The result is a point-symmetrical slope that offers five run-offs for rain.

Entrance and Ventilation
Five windows and five doors offer maximum flexibility. Windows and doors can be opened variably by 2-way zippers and ensure a sufficient air exchange and a good climate inside the tent.

Storage Space
Multiple sown-in bags inside offer space for smaller and bigger items. An apsis at the entrance provides room for cooking or for your shoes. A detachable Gear Loft underneath the rooftop offers additional storage space and can be used to put a lamp inside for diffuse atmospheric room light.

Multi Chamber Safety System
with 5 chambers

The Multi Chamber Safety System offers an emergency stability in case of a defect and ensures an easy repair/replacement of parts of the IDG – the Inflatable Diamond Grid.

The Cave is the first inflatable geodesic dome tent from Heimplanet. Its inflatable geodesic frame offers the most efficient and stable structure, we call it the IDG - the Inflatable Diamond Grid.
The IDG offers an emergency stability thanks to the patented Multi Chamber Safety System. In case of a defect the air frame can be repaired easily.
Pitching takes less than a minute. Just take the tent out of the bag, pump it up and you are ready to feel at home. There are no parts to put together. It is not even necessary to use any guy lines to stabilize the structure, which is tested up to winds of 120km/h.

Dimensions
The dimensions of Mavericks are impressive. With an Overall height of 234 cm (7 feet, 8 inches) and an Diameter (inside) of 410 cm (13 feet, 5 inches) does it offer lots of room for crew and equipment.

The multi-purpose tent Mavericks is especially designed for extreme conditions. It can be used as basecamp or group tent for example. It offers an internal height of 2 meters and more then 13 square meters of space.
Mavericks also uses our IDG (Inflatable Diamond Grid) technology and the patented Multi Chamber Safety System: after inflation the inflatable structure can be separated in 10 individual air chambers to ensure an emergency stability in case of a defect.
The whole tent is preassembled and can be set up by one single person in no time.
Its special geodesic structure of the tent Mavericks is developed to withstand high wind speeds up to 180km/h.

The inflatable Diamond Grid-IDG

Inspired by nature

Nature invented the most stable structures that we know: The diamond. Its stability is based on its specific molecular and crystal structure. Stress gets distributed across the whole structure. A principle, that also applies to geodesic domes and that we use for our tents.

Airbeams

Double layer construction

The airbeams are built with a resistant double-layer construction: an extra airtight TPU (thermoplastic urethane) bladder keeps the air inside for a long time and an outer jacket provides protection and stability. The outer jacket is made of a high-tenacity polyester fabric, which ensures extra stability and durability.

2-in-1 Valves

For fast inflation and deflation

Every chamber of the IDG features at least one 2-in-1 valve, each with two closures: a check valve for a quick and simple inflation of the air frame and a large opening for letting out the air easily. So putting up the tent and taking it down can be done fast and easily.

THE SAFETY SYSTEM

MULTI CHAMBER
SAFETY SYSTEM

Our patented Multi Chamber Safety System enables you to inflate the entire air frame (IDG) in just one single step. Once inflated, the air frame can be divided into separate chambers, which ensures sufficient emergency stability in the event that a part becomes damaged because all the other airbeams will remain stable. Also it is possible to localize the defective part very easily and repair or replace it.

Easy Repair

All parts of the Inflatable Diamond Grid - IDG can be easily repaired or replaced.
Even with the most resistant materials damage cannot be ruled out entirely. Each of the airbeams features a casing and an inner bladder – very much like bicycle tires do. The inner bladder can be easily patched or replaced. Should the casing ever become damaged, it too can be replaced.

THE HANDLING

SETUP

Inflating our tents works intuitively and follows a simple principle: Unroll, inflate - done!
The special: inflatable frame, inner and outer tent work as a unit and do not have to be assembled.
Here’s how it works: unroll the tent, close all valves, take one of the valves (whichever one) and pump it up with one of the Heimplanet pumps or with any standard pump. Welcome home!

 

STRIKING

Taking down the tent - just like pitching it - works very quickly and easily. Simply release all valve openings and most of the air will flow out on it’s own. Push out the little rest, roll it up, pack it and head to the next place!

 

PUMP

The pumps can be used for all tent models.

The Performance

Stability

The inflatable frame offers an impressive stability. Thanks to the geodesic principle guy lines are only necessary in very extreme conditions. Even if the wind force should exceed the structure’s capability, there are no parts that could break.

The geodesic principle

Besides its great stability, geodesic domes offer a very efficient structure due to their excellent material-to-volume ratio.
We translated this principle into our “Inflatable Diamond Grid” - IDG and our inflatable tents. The inflatable geodesic structure is built out of modular double-layer airbeams. This ensures an outstanding stability and guarantees an easy set-up of our tents - so you can get the maximum out of your trip.
