F
rom cattle to casinos to rental cars, radio frequency
identification or RFID technology is making inroads across
a myriad of industries, including the tent industry, as
manufacturers and event rental companies turn to RFID tags
to streamline production and help manage inventory.
According to Mathieu De Backer,
vice president of innovation and
sustainability with Avery Dennison
Smartrac in Ascoli Piceno, Italy, current
RFID technology is particularly prevalent
in retail distribution channels and instore
product tags.
" Walmart, the world's largest retailer,
has mandated that its suppliers use
RFID across a range of product lines
so it can track goods in transit, in its
warehouses and in its stores, " De Backer
says. But its use goes way beyond retail.
Car manufacturers use RFID tags to
track millions of components in their
warehouses. It's also being incorporated
into car tires so that safety features can
be embedded and fitting errors reduced.
And the pharmaceutical industry uses
it to track medications and ensure the
integrity of ingredients.
Within the tent industry, RFID tags
are making a big impact. According
to Darren Morizet, founder and CEO
at Easy RFID Pro in Poughquag, N.Y.,
RFID tags are commonly installed in
tents, sidewalls, inflatable attractions,
linens and lounge furniture.

TYPES OF RFID
Generally speaking, there are two types
of RFID systems. The first is a fixed RFID
system. As Morizet explains, this requires
hardware to be installed throughout a
facility and can be costly to implement.
The other option is a mobile solution,
which generally comes at a reduced cost
and can be used both on and off premises.
" There are also two different types
of tags. Active tags are more expensive
and require a battery to work, " Morizet
says. " They offer extended read ranges
and the possibility of real-time tracking.
The other type of tag is a passive tag.
These tags are much less expensive,
lightweight and do not require a
battery. " They do, however, come with
limited range and are more susceptible
to interference. Passive tags are more
commonly used for tents and textile
fabrics and are best suited for many
types of inventory management.
De Backer further explains the two
main types of RFID. Ultra-high frequency
(UHF) are long range tags that are used
in warehouses, logistics, distribution
centers and retail stores. These are read
