Covid-19 Inflatable Module

After recent requests from clients to create a sealed tent used as an emergency temporary shelter for Covid-19 patients, Extreme Marquees is developing a range of fast deployment inflatable isolation modules. Our clients have advised that they want to be proactive and have a procedure in place should symptoms of Corona Virus be evident.

The first prototype has just been released; however, development and testing of the EM-C19 series will be ongoing. Extreme Marquees is seeking development partnerships with the Australian Government, University Research Departments and relevant private sector companies who wish to become stakeholders in this project.

Our customers have been buying everything from small portable folding marquees to large event tents. 

The problem with standard marquees is that they are bulky, not as fast to set up and of course most importantly are not air tight. They have been designed for protection against the elements, not the spread of disease.

The challenge was to develop a rapidly deployable sealed isolation chamber. The benefits of this product are that it is:

– light weight 
– compact 
– fast to set up 
– and “sealed” in an attempt to prevent the spread of an infectious disease

The EM-C19 ranges of infectious disease containment modules are designed in Australia and purpose-built. 

We have developed a range of sizes from 3×3 metres up to 10×10. They can be linked together to create larger spaces and are deployable within 10 minutes. 

The modules can be joined together to create an interlocking patient zone and a medical staff decontamination zone. Sealed doors between the modules are designed to prevent the spread of disease.

Extreme Marquees is the manufacturer of the “Infectious Disease Fast Deployment Inflatable Containment Module”. The module can be deployed in several minutes and is designed as a temporary containment facility to reduce the possibility of infectious disease transfer. It weighs just 18 kg and packs down to dimensions of just 45cm x 45cm x 60cm allowing it to be conveniently stowed away adjacent to other emergency and medical equipment. 

The EM-C19 dual inflatable module has two independent compartments linked by a tunnel. There are two internal doors that separate and form a lock between the modules.  This is designed to minimise the chance of infectious disease spreading between the modules. The walls and floor are joined together to provide a sealed compartment  The Medical Staff module is designed as a decontamination area where protective clothing can be removed and placed into sealed bags or where disinfectant can be sprayed. There are two outlets that provide a means for air or oxygen flow into the module. The supply of air or oxygen into the patient module or other means of ventilation should be determined before being occupied. 

* The EM-C19 has not been tested for the containment of disease and as such offers no guarantees. It has been designed after consultation with clients to provide a possible temporary solution to minimise the spread of airborne disease. All normal infectious disease precautions should be taken.
