March 23, 2007, Newsletter Issue #56: Military canopies: Some military shelters are designed for ultimate safety

Tip of the Week

There are a few very versatile canopies that can be deployed in a variety of climatic conditions. The advantages are the ability to be provided in virtually any configuration to suit the special deployment conditions and requirements.
They have been tested to tensile strength, elongation, tearing strength, bursting strength, coating adhesion, resistance to flexing and flammability.
One very special configuration is that the structure can be supplied with an inner skin of polyethylene or polypropylene which can meet requirements of nuclear, bacteriological and chemical containment.
The roof/ceiling is thermally bonded-laminated to fire retardant high-density polyethylene on both sides. The insulation helps keep the canopy cool in the heat and warm when it is cold outside.
The design is more of a dome than a pointed tent.
