Armbruster builds WWII Canvas Tents
Small Wall Tent
Armbruster just recently completed prototypes of 1941 specification wall tents, using original wartime information and details. We built these using machines and equipment from the era. Cotton thread, webbing, bronze slides, and stencil plates actually from WWII were used in their construction. New 14 oz waterproof, flame retardant canvas was used, with period correct brass grommets and rope. Armbruster plans to sell these tents to reenactors, museums, private collectors, and movie production sets. Details of the tents:
- WWI peaked billetting tents
- Shelter Halves WWII open ended
- Small Wall Tents
- Large Wall Tents
- Storage Tents
- Command Post Tents
- Hospital Ward Tents
- Pyramidal Tents during WWII
- Squad Tents
- Large General Assembly Tents
- 2 Story Tent Enclosures to work on B-17 and B-24 engines during the winter
- Red Cross Tents of all sizes
- And many customs sizes and shapes of canvas tents for every application
The last government contracts of canvas type tents were made during the Korean War by Armbruster. Armbruster still has the specification on hand in our files.
Today Armbruster sells it’s modern vinyl tents to the Government under GSA contract GS-07F-0111V. Armbruster has been making tents for the Military since 1875, and is proud to bring back these reproduction tents to help support a key part of U.S. History and the Greatest Generation.
