About Helinox

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.

The best materials

DAC TH72M Alloy

This advanced alloy that provides maximum strength with minimum weight. Alloy sections are treated using a 'Green Anodising' process – better the environment and factory workers.

High-strength Nylon 66

Hubs and joining components are moulded using a high-strength nylon. 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 won't fall apart in over many years of regular use.

Gentle strength

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 buzz word 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.

The intelligent choice

Whether you're looking for lightweight, reliable gear for your next outdoor adventure – or an elegant set of indoor/outdoor funiture – or a perfectly camouflaged seat for the next hunting trip – Helinox is the only smart choice.

Combining innovative design with advanced materials and superb attention to detail, Helinox products will give many years of enjoyment.

A proven track record of environmentally friendly production techniques means you can rest easy enjoying nature, knowing the people who make your Helinox gear love nature too.
