In an emergency, for instance an accident or fire, speed can save lives: so it comes as no surprise that professional, voluntary, and youth firefighters have learned to trust Pro Tent folding tents. Thanks to their fast assembly, our folding tents are ideal for firefighters, e.g. as an emergency tent, rescue tent, or crew tent. Also as promotional stands at municipal festivals they fulfil an important purpose.
Not even 60 seconds, a few manual operations, and only two firefighters are needed, and the mobile rapid deployment tent is now ready for use. Tools are not needed, and our folding firefighters’ tent makes no use of loose separate parts either. Thanks to the fast assembly facilitated by its ingenious folding construction, the Pro Tent folding tents save valuable time, but with no sacrifice to the convenience and safety of firefighters and helpers – which can be the case with inflatable systems. Also the compact package dimensions of our tents save valuable minutes during a firefighting deployment, for there is no time lost in the frequent shifting of cargo in deployment vehicles. In addition, the space offered in firefighting vehicles is generally very limited.
All fabrics used for Pro Tent folding tents meet the flame retardant requirements of building material class B1 and are therefore suitable for firefighting deployments. This also applies to the weatherproof sidewalls fitted as standard to our rescue tents. These protect victims and helpers not only against sunlight from the side and slanting rain, but also keep dirt, whirling dust, and fumes outside. At the same time, sidewalls also provide discretion during a firefighting deployment and obstruct the view of events to onlookers and media representatives. Helpers can then work with full concentration and without distractions. Also the victim’s privacy rights can be protected better with a concealing screen.
Professional and military firefighters use our folding tents for a wide range of different purposes: as a medical or first aid tent where the injured are treated after an expressway accident or as an operations centre coordinating a large deployment of many rescue workers. Our mobile folding tents are also used as a protective or rest tent for the crew. Lastly, our folding tents also serve as promotional tents that above all voluntary firefighters use at events to demonstrate the importance of their work and to attract the coming generation.
When an emergency arises, the course of the deployment is affected by details as well. This, Sascha Petermann knows exactly. As a Rüti voluntary firefighter, it is his job to keep cool in the face of danger. In a brief interview, he explained how Pro Tent folding tents help him keep track during deployments.
We decided in favour of a Pro‑Tent tent because we could set them up quickly and they are made of tough materials.
The tent is useful for deployments involving many injured persons by shielding them against rubbernecks and serving as rest areas or sunshades for our personnel and as a concealing screen for our operations management.
The acquisition of a Pro Tent folding tent has been more than just worthwhile for us. We are absolutely delighted and can only recommend it to others.
