Straps and Khayaavch of Mongolian Yurt
Outer straps. There are three straps for the top, middle and bottom. They are encircled and tightened after the outer cover is placed. We offer outer straps made of horse hair and nylon straps.
Inner straps. Although it might be difficult to see in the picture above, there are two straps, for the top and bottom, that encircle the lattice wall. We offer horsehair inner straps.
Side straps. There is one side strap that should be tightened after the crown cover is placed. We offer straps made of horse hair and nylon straps.
Khayavch. Its main purpose is to regulate the Mongolian yurt temperature. When it is removed, wind flow in the yurt increases significantly. When it is on, it keeps warmth, or, coolness inside the yurt. It can be made either of wood or waterproof canvass.
The Wooden structure of Camping Yurt
Floor/foundation. The yurt needs to be set up on an even surface. Floor/foundation can be made of lots of material: wood, concrete, etc. In Mongolia, nomads do not use the floor during summer; they just set the yurt up on grass. Our standard yurt does not include floor/foundation. We recommend the customers to set their own foundation suited well to their landscape and environment. Also, the Wooden floor is too heavy and expensive to ship around the world.
Door. It is made of larch wood. This is the part most exposed to the elements of the wood parts. It needs exterior grade glue to last long in non-Mongolian, humid climate. Camping Yurts Door can be deployed in 4 pieces.
Lattice wall. The number of lattice wall determines the size of the Portable yurt. Camel hide cut in narrow straps is the most suitable material to securely join wood to make the lattice wall. Our lattice walls have 2 parts(Lower and Upper) which connected during assemble.
Rafters. Depending on the size of the Camping yurt, there are from 36 to over 200 rafters to join the lattice wall and the crown wheel. Our rafters are deployed in 2 pieces to save space.
Crown wheel /compression ring/skylight. There are three different names for this part; we generally use the name “crown wheel”. This is the part through which rain and snow water can come in. In our Portable yurt, we modify crown wheel foldable in 8 pieces. Each pieces connected with flexible steel wire.
