The rigid frame Emergency Response Shelter opens up new market opportunities. The one-piece shelter is exceptionally versatile and can be used alone or connected together. It makes an ideal field hospital, casualty holding centre or protective enclosure for crime scenes during forensic examination.
An insulated version is designed for use in extreme climates and, for hot countries, this can include an optional air conditioning system. A basic model is also available which can be palletised for rapid deployment around the world to provide temporary accommodation for disaster relief.
The anodised aluminium frame makes it strong yet lightweight. It’s easy to carry and can be erected by two people in only 3 minutes. Guy lines and pegs or ballast tanks are used to secure the shelter in place.
The standard cover is made of a Neoprene-coated Nylon with a wipe-clean rubber coating. It has zip entry and exit doors and can be supplied with optional windows. A flap in the cover is used when connecting multiple shelters. When the frame is folded for storage, the cover remains attached and is therefore prevented from contacting the floor and becoming dirty.
The unit can be used with or without a detachable ground sheet, depending on the application. When the shelter is used for decontamination, the ground sheet forms a base and sump which can be replaced after use.
