The versatility of our shelters is especially important to us with each of our shelters being made to order, offering the buyer such a bespoke service enables us to make sure this vital piece of equipment is perfectly suited to the situation it will be intended for.

Case Study: Medical Tents During Covid 19
The Covid 19 pandemic saw the need for medical & first Aid shelters across the world. Used by medical staff, these ad-hoc hospital wards became vital provisional spaces for fighting back against the virus. These shelters helped provide rapid-response set-ups for healthcare organisations, and humanitarian response to preform effective treatment on patients, particularly in situations where funding was scarce or facilities were unavailable!
Utilising these emergency shelters as 'pop-up clinics' ensured a quick (and cost-effective way) to distribute vaccinations too. Providing local populations more opportunity to receive their first, second or booster vaccinations.
Functional. Portable. Mobile.
It is in these aformentioned instances that portable medical tents shine their advantages through their versatile application and utility! When preparation time is short, and medical demand is suddenly high — having a fast-inflation tent at you or your team's disposal not only gives you functionality, portability and mobility - but the ability to accommodate for large numbers of people. Providing both medical and sheltering services to those who need it most.
Our ICB Medical & First Aid shelters are currently in use across the U.K and Europe and have been used throughout the Covid 19 pandemic by medical teams and doctors’ surgeries as both pop-up vaccination centres and treatment rooms.
