Furthermore, the latticework makes up the walls of the tent. This latticework is made out of pieces of wood or bamboo for walls, a door frame, ribs, and a wheel. The roof structure is often self-supporting, but large yurts may have interior posts supporting the crown. Notably, the top of all self-supporting yurts will not fall. The use of a tension band makes this possible. This band opposes the force of the roof. Modern yurts may be less portable as they remain stationary due to their wooden platforms. Additionally, the use of modern materials such as steam-bent wooden framing or metal framing, canvas or tarpaulin, give modern yurts a more contemporary feeling.
