Creative Tent International has worked with Erickson to provide storage and maintenance solutions for air cranes for several years.
Their helicopters are deployed worldwide to transport materials, aid in rescues and assist in a variety of construction uses and renovations. Fabric tension structures are just as portable as helicopters and provide protection and storage.
In some cases, permanent buildings are not feasible due to location, time or money constraints. Therefore, relocatable, zero footprint, fabric tension structures are the best alternative.
As a result of Creative Tent’s partnership with Erickson, the company realised the need for these types of structures in the aviation industry.
Creative Tent aims to demonstrate how they can be used, the best climate and locations, as well as innovative uses and much more.
For years, fabric tension structures have been used as party tents or industrial housing for the military during conflicts. However, the application of the Shasta Shelter® for aviation use is important to understand. Shasta Shelter provides large-volume, clear-span structures with no internal columns or supports. They are configured based on customer needs and can grow with as the demand for storage or maintenance increases.
The Shasta Shelter series is a fully relocatable series of structures that are built to last. Creative Tent structures pack tight and small for the size and volume they give. Minimal containers and lighter shipping than comparable sized units allow customers to ship valuable goods and more equipment.
Shasta Shelter is recognised for its quality, advanced engineering, field performance standards and price-to-value ratio. Interim relocatable shelters provide a smart and efficient solution to budget constraints, providing quick start times.
Creative Tent units are non-corrosive and mould-resistant, and are engineered to the International Building Code (IBC).
They are designed to handle high wind and snow loads, as well as rugged and remote locations. In addition, they can be used for short or long-term projects. All structures are manufactured in the US.
