The Eco Kit Tent is the most cost efficient form of accommodation alternative Eco Structures develops. It is designed to be semi-permanent in nature, and may be used as short-term or permanent accommodation.

The Eco Kit Tent is based on a metal modular frame design, finished with ECO decking, and canvas walls and roofing.

A 4.2 m2 Eco Tent complete with internal and external decking weighs from 1.2 tonne and a 6.3m2 Eco Tent weighs from 2.4 tonne. Both products are supplied as a flat pack kit.

Eco Kit Tents are available in two ranges & three standard sizes and formats:

  • 3.0m x 3.0m single room with 1.8m deep veranda deck 43.56sqm under roof.
  • 4.2m x 4.2m single room with 1.8m deep veranda deck 60.84sqm under roof.
  • 6.3m x 6.3m single room with 1.8m deep veranda deck 98.01sqm under roof.

The Budget range is the same superior quality just without the structural floor & veranda. The budget range has been designed to be constructed on a platform of your choice.

Layout options are limited only to your imagination & the space available within the canvas walls of the Eco Kit Tent, allowing a variety of uses such as Reception, Information Centres and Group Dining Facilities.

Add-on soft wall bathroom enclosures are available and are shared with additional veranda deck space. Additional veranda decks are available to all sides of an Eco Structure.

Thermal Performance

The Eco Kit Tent utilises large window areas to maximize the effect of cooling breezes. The huge lave overhang is specifically designed for maximum ENERGY co-efficiency. Tests indicate that the large shade roof can reduce the internal temperatures within the Eco tents by up to 6 degrees Celsius.


Slide-on, interchangeable canvas wall panels allow easy removal and replacement of the soft components of the Eco Kit Tent, should the need arise. The modular kit frame system allows the Eco Kit Tent to be dismantled and re-erected in a new location with minimal effort.
