  2. How Medical Screening Tents Provide Reliable Spaces for Screening Patients

    How Medical Screening Tents Provide Reliable Spaces for Screening Patients

    When the threat of infectious diseases grows, hospitals and medical centers may require additional spaces for patients, doctors and nurses. Medical tents and medical screening tents are convenient solutions for patient testing, storing medical equipment, and setting up emergency screening spaces. Fabric buildings and portable tents are in high demand when there’s an epidemic or pandemic, such as the flu or COVID-19. When the need arises, these structures can be quickly assembled and easily anchored to a variety of outdoor spaces. ShelterLogic manufactures various fabric buildings and portable tents that can be used for screening purposes. Many of those could be used in the medical field as a medical screening tent, containment tent, surge tent, and triage tent.

    How Can a Temporary Building be Used as a Medical Tent?

    Hospitals and medical centers could use temporary buildings as medical tents outside hospitals or other public spaces for a variety of reasons, including:
    • Check-in Areas: Enclosed tents and fabric buildings can be used as check-in areas for emergency room patients before they enter the main medical building. Once an initial screening takes place, medical personnel can determine the next steps for patients.
    • Overflow Waiting Room Space: In case there is a rush of patients, surge tents could be used as overflow waiting room space. These containment tents can also help communities enforce social distancing for patients as they wait, which could assist in keeping the spread of illness down.
    • Triage Staging Areas: These tents and buildings can also be used as staging areas where triage personnel can assemble and wait for necessary information. Also, they can be used to store whatever medical equipment and supplies will be needed at a moment’s notice.
    • Medical Screening Areas: Tents and fabric buildings can be used to quarantine potentially contagious emergency room patients from those without any symptoms. They can also be used as medical tents for patients who don’t show signs, so those with symptoms can be screened inside.
    • Drive-through Testing Areas: Testing facilities can contain the spread of infectious diseases by opening drive-through testing centers. Symptomatic patients with a doctor’s note drive up and stay in their car as they are tested. A fabric canopy can be used to keep medical personnel and testing equipment sheltered as they work.
    • Patient Isolation Areas: Should a mass number of patients with the same infectious disease need to be separated from the rest of the population, fabric buildings can be used as additional short-term patient isolation spaces.

    Which ShelterLogic Products Can Be Used as Medical Tents?

    ShelterLogic manufactures and sells several types of temporary fabric buildings for a variety of industries. Some of these buildings might be used as medical tents*.

  7. Choosing the Right Car Shelter: 5 Tips for Better Vehicle Storage

    Choosing the Right Car Shelter: 5 Tips for Better Vehicle Storage

    Car shelters are your vehicles' first line of defense against the elements. They come in many different sizes and price ranges, providing you with a variety of choices to find the perfect car shelter for your needs. If you aren’t sure which car shelter is right for you; here are 5 basic tips to help you decide the best vehicle storage that’s suitable for your storage needs.

    Why Do You Need Car Shelter?

    Car shelters provide an adequate storage space for your vehicle, either short-term or long-term. There are also a lot of added benefits depending on your weather situation. With a car shelter, keep your vehicle protected from something as small as accumulated dirt to problematic inclement weather. Some car shelters can help you worry less about protecting your vehicle from snow, while others are made to block harmful UV rays from deteriorating your investment.

    Tip #1: Know What You want to Store Before You Shop.

    It may not come as a surprise, but our first tip is to identify what you’re looking to store. Do you need storage for one or two vehicles? Car shelters can accommodate multiple vehicles depending on size. For instance, some portable garages... are greater than 20ft. long, helping you not only shelter multiple vehicles, but act as additional storage. You’ll also need to consider how much movement you want in your car shelter. Will you have enough room to open the doors of your vehicle? Is there enough clearance space?

    Customer Testimonial: ShelterLogic's ShelterTech SP Series Building

    Should you custom build a ShelterTech SP Series building?

    To assist our customers in making better buying decisions, we’ll be showcasing customer testimonials that highlight many of the pros and cons of some of our shelters, canopies and garages. Our goal? To help you narrow down your decision and find the shade or shelter that’s right for you. Our first installment will focus on our premium line of custom shelters, the ShelterTech SP Series.

    Tough Weather, No Problem: See How the ShelterTech SP Series Holds Up

    ShelterTech SP Series ShelterLogic SnowKansas’s weather can get pretty rough, with temperatures ranging from below zero in the winter to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. Paul, a customer in Kansas, purchased his own custom a 12 x 8 x 20 ft. ShelterTech SP Series in June 2015, and he proudly explained that wind, rain, shine and even some hail - his building is still going strong
    The unit is set up on a compacted gravel base [approximately] 12-18 inches deep on a slight slope. The opening side faces west, with some early morning shade from tall pines. The Kansas temps can vary from below zero winter to above 100 degrees F [in the] summer. Since installed (approximately June 2015) there have been some storms with gusts to 70 mph, some hail, and not much snow.

    What Can You Store In A ShelterTech SP Series?

    screen-shot-2016-09-09-at-5-04-55-pmSince the ShelterTech SP Series line is customizable, it’s possible to custom build these units to extremely big (and up to 100 ft. long if you need it), to as small as a 13 x 20 x 12 ft. Garage-In-A-Box (just stronger). In Paul’s case, he was able to store quite a bit of equipment in his 12 x 8 x 20 ft. ShelterTech SP Series building.
    I store five pieces of larger outdoor equipment and several smaller ones: a Kubota CUT tractor, a Case Lawn & Garden tractor, a Chipper Shredder, a Cyclone Rake assembled, a 55 gallon Sprayer, and some smaller stuff.

    How Easy Is The ShelterTech SP Series to Assemble?

    Depending on the size building you need and custom build, assembly may be more complicated. Generally though, we try to make assembly as easy as possible. For his 12 x 8 x 20 ft. ShelterTech SP Series building, Paul explained that assembly was easy.
    I was able to assemble it 90% by myself. I need a neighbor to pull top cover over. It wasn't all that expensive or complicated to do.

    ShelterTech SP Series Pro’s and Cons

    As with any product, depending on what you need there will be things you love and things you feel can be improved. For Paul, he’s pretty happy with his ShelterTech SP Series, and he seems pleased with the way that the building has held up even in some tough weather over the course of the last year.
    Obviously, the ability to get my equipment out of the weather [is the most enjoyable thing about this product].... be it sun, rain or snow. [And ShelterLogic] company support has been outstanding for the times I’ve contacted Customer Service…a better pulley could help but the zipper works fine.

    We get a lot of questions about the ShelterTech SP Series from customers, and one of the first questions they ask is, is it worth the price?
