A HERITAGE OF INNOVATION When the world's best tent makers want lightweight alloy poles, there's only one place they go: the DAC company. DAC has spent many years developing innovative new techniques required to produce high-strength lightweight alloy tubing. It was from this long history of design & innovation that Helinox was born.
DAC TH72M ALLOY This advanced alloy provides maximum strength with minimum weight. Alloy segments acquire beautiful color through a 'Green Anodising' process – better for the environment.
HIGH-STRENGTH NYLON 66 Hubs and joining components are molded using a high-strength nylon and engineered for maximum precision. This provides solid and secure sockets for the alloy sections.
QUALITY FABRICS Premium fabrics are combined with reinforcing panels and durable stitching – producing seats, beds & carry bags that perform over many years of regular use.
To guard against corrosion and preserve appearance, aluminium alloy components need to be anodised. Traditionally the anodising process involved boiling alloy components in a brew of nitric & phosphoric acids. Long before ‘eco’ became a buzzword in the industry, DAC started trying to eliminate harmful nitric & phosphoric acids from the anodising process.
After 8 years of trial and error, DAC perfected the ‘Green Anodising’ system that is used to treat all Helinox products. A water recycling program in the anodising facility further reduces environmental impacts.
The end result ensures longevity of TH72M alloy components while reducing negative impacts for both the environment and the people who manufacture your Helinox gear.
