Coleman Instant Screened Shelters

Coleman offers 3 Instant Screened Shelters (a.k.a. screenhouses or screened canopies) of different shapes and sizes for use in the backyard, at the BBQ, picnic, campsite, sporting events, or wherever you want some reliable protection from the sun, pesky mosquitoes, flies, bees, wasps and other flying insects. All 3 screenhouse models feature easy setup, removable screen wall to keep insects out, and heavy-duty 150D canopy with *SPF 50+ UV Guard sun protection.

* Note: SPF, or Sun Protection Factor, is the numerical rating of how well a sunscreen will protect skin from UVB rays, the kind of sun ray that causes sunburn or skin damages. SPF 50+ denotes that the product is capable of blocking 98% of UVB rays. For a more detailed explanation please visit: FDA: SPF Sun Protection, and Wikipedia: Sunscreen.

Useful Tips for Coleman Screened Shelter Users:

1. Select a level site clear of rocks, branches, and other hard or sharp objects, to install your shelter.

2. Do not set up your shelter under trees because of potential lightning strikes or falling tree limbs in inclement weather.

3. Keep clear of overhead power lines.

4. Secure with all stakes and guylines provided to prevent property damage or personal injury.

5. For best results in windy conditions, position narrow end of shelter into the wind.

6. Under certain conditions such as cold weather, high humidity, etc., condensation will form on the inside of your shelter. Condensation is caused by water vapor from your breath, perspiration, or any wet
clothing inside the shelter.

7. Tree limbs, tree sap, bird droppings, or moisture steadily dripping off tree limbs can cause damage to the shelter fabric and its coating resulting in leaks or loss of flame-resistant properties.

8. Never store shelter, even for a short period of time, without drying it thoroughly and brushing off caked dirt. Do not pack stakes inside your shelter. Use a separate storage bag.

9. Stakes should be removed by pulling on the stake itself. NEVER PULL ON THE SHELTER TO REMOVE STAKES AS THIS COULD RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY.

10. DO NOT use gas or flame sources under or near your screened shelter.
