A couple of interesting photos off the Facebook group.

First one , the owner let some air out in the heat of the day and this is after a 10 degree drop in temperature.

Second one is self explanatory, on display at Go Outdoors

It can't be beyond the wit of man to have a pressure release valve in the system.

Sounds like another modification coming on.

We were camping at Cirencester last week & the air awning on one of the seasonal pitches exploded. I was making use of the facilities at the time but my wife most definitely heard it go & there was a cloud of white dust settling by the time she twigged what had occurred.

We had pitched our Vango Elwood air awning a couple of days before this but made sure we only pumped it up to the lower end of the range.

I was thinking of a similar awning, but the photos and the story are scaring me . Are the explosions due to the increase in pressure due to overheating and is there no way to avoid it? example a release valve?

Its the same with tyres! You should check them regularly anyway but expect the pressure to change with the weather.

My Outdoor Revolution Oxygen 2 has pressure relief valves fitted.

Surely this should be a standard fitment?
