FABRIC ROOF LOOPS
Sewn in at regular intervals to each tube in the roof section are FABRIC LOOPS. The LOOPS can be used for hanging lights, notice boards, medical drips etc.
Attached to each corner of the Aireshelta is a Metal D-Ring which allows a “SPAN STRAP” to be attached at either end of the Aireshelta prior to inflating the Aireshelta. The purpose of the SPAN STRAPS is to help pull inwards the side-walls of the Aireshelta during inflation ensuring a rapid deployment. Once the Aireshelta is inflated then the SPAN STRAPS can be detached to eliminate a trip hazard.
The Aireshelta can be supplied with one or two INLATION TUBES. The INFLATION TUBES are 1 mete in length as standard but can be longer if required. The INFLATION TUBE is fastened to the outlet cone of the inflation fan by a heavy-duty strap and cam buckle fastening. When not in use the INFLATION TUBE is stored away within the tube of the Aireshelta and then covered by a Velcro fastening flap.
A number of DEFLATION PORTS are situated under the base of the side-walls of the Aireshelta. During the inflation of the Aireshelta it is important that the DEFLATION PORTS are tied off and closed. During the deflation of the Aireshelta the deflation ports are opened to allow the internal air to escape quickly therefore speeding up the packing away of the Aireshelta.
WHITE TRANSLUCENT ROOF
Unless specified by the customer, all Airesheltas are manufactured with a WHITE TRANSLUCENT ROOF area. The TRANSLUCENT roof material allows approximately 80% of natural daylight in to the Aireshelta.
Situated at each lower internal corner of the Aireshelta are two loops that allow a short aluminium pole to be inserted. This acts as a handle to allow four people to lift each corner of the Aireshelta in the event of having to relocate the unit whilst being inflated. A fifth person is needed to carry the inflation fan.
INTERNAL AIR VENTS
A standard feature on all Airesheltas are the INTERNAL AIR VENTS. A small Velcro fastened flap of material reveals a mesh covered opening which allows cool air to be blown in to the Aireshelta.
WEATHERPROOF FLAPS are situated at the bottom of the doors. When not in use they are secured by Velcro fastenings. In the event of heavy rain the flaps are released and folded to the outside of the Aireshelta. The rain then runs down the doors, on to the WEATHERPROOF FLAPS and is directed away from the inside of the Aireshelta.
A clear Velbex material can be used to incorporate side or roof windows in the Aireshelta. The Velbex window sections can be built in to one or several tubes of the Aireshelta.
GROUNDSHEETS are an optional extra. The Aireshelta application will determine the type of GROUNDSHEET to be used.
Two types of GROUNDSHEETS can be supplied with the Aireshelta: A permanent, sewn-in sheet or a detachable sheet.
Clear plastic WINDOWS can be built in to the doors of the Aireshelta. Each WINDOW has a Velcro cover that can be rolled up and stored neatly above the window.
STANDARD DOORS & DUTCH LACING
The STANDARD DOOR (s) in your Aireshelta consists of one or two centre doors (depending on the size of the Aireshelta). To the sides of the centre doors are side doors which can be rolled back and fastened neatly to one side. The centre doors can also be rolled up and secured at the top by Velcro strips.
To fasten the centre doors a DUTCH LACING SYSTEM is used. Zips are not recommended by Aireshelta due to their tendency to jam or break just when you don’t want them to. The DUTCH LACE system of fastening the doors is recommended by the army.
All Airesheltas are supplied with built in heavy duty ANCHOR ROPES. The Heavy Duty ANCHOR ROPES are held in position by a series of loops running over the top of the Aireshelta. Each ANCHOR ROPE can be attached to a
HEAVY DUTY STEEL ANCHOR STAKE that is supplied with each Aireshelta unit. The ANCHOR STAKES are supplied and packed in their own carry case. A heavy-duty hammer is also supplied.
VEHICLE STANDING PADS
In the event of the Aireshelta being deployed on a hard surface then the VEHICLE STANDING PADS located along the full length of each side of the Aireshelta can be used to park a vehicle or heavy objects on to help secure the Aireshelta into position.
At one end of the Aireshelta, a series of DUTCH LACING LOOPS are positioned to allow two or more Airesheltasto be
connected together. A wide weatherproof flap runs over the top of the LINKABILITY in order to prevent the rain coming in. .
The Aireshelta is supplied with a heavy duty VALISE. The VALISE is colour coordinated with the Aireshelta. Rubber handles are situated at each side of the VALISE to make handling and lifting easy.
A REPAIR KIT is provided with each Aireshelta. The REPAIR KIT contains rolls of material, needle and thread, spare Dutch Laces and eyelets. A colour coordinated carry pouch is also provided to house the REPAIR KIT.
The four carry poles are contained in a specially designed carry bag.
Each Aireshelta is supplied with a detailed step by step manual showing the inflation and deflation method.
Training in the operation of the Aireshelta is available to all Aireshelta customers.
