Tents for Disaster Relief

Our central location in Indiana allows us to deliver the tents almost anywhere in the country within 72 hours. Once on-site, our team of experienced clear span and pole tent installers can erect approximately 10,000 square feet of tents in a day.

All of our tent options can serve as temporary solutions for any of the following shelter purposes:

  • Disaster Relief Shelters
  • Command Centers
  • Temporary Shelters
  • Temporary Military Housing
  • Temporary Hospitals

We have several makes and models of tents for any disaster relief effort, including:

Clear Span Structures

Clean span structures are a versatile option and the most sought-after inventory we carry. Clear span structures are a great option for military and government relief efforts because they are large in size and don’t have interior poles. These tents can house hundreds of beds, thousands of pallets, and sensitive equipment. Engineered for up to 60 mph winds and 90 mph gusts, they are ideal for long-term installations and can be installed on concrete, grass, gravel, and around obstacles.

Century Tents

Our century tents balance a sleek aerodynamic design with impeccable strength, durability, and flexibility.  Engineered for winds up to 60 mph winds and 90 mph gusts, century tents can be used for long-term installations.

Century tents fully-flexible design adjusts to just about any terrain. Interior poles and lace lines require no rigid interior parts so these tents are ideal when ground conditions are uncertain.

G.D., Owner of Event Management Company

I want to tell you how very pleased I was with both set-up and take-down of the tents. The installers were freindly, helpful and all around great guys. It was raining and muddy during the take-down, yet these guys were great! Thank you for all of the help.
