Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, Awning Works Inc. has developed, based upon its 30-year proven design of the Showoff Canopy, a portable MedTent product that’s suited to inherently provide shade but uniquely incorporates an antimicrobial, anti-static and flame retardant fabric used in institutional hospital settings to mitigate the spread of germs. The MedTent components are all Made In America and all manufacturing is done in our Clearwater, Florida facility.
What is the MedTent?
The MedTent is an outdoor portable and temporary shelter that is convertible to be used indoors with or without the top fabric as the zippered sides and isolation panels can also be secured with their Velcro straps. The Shade Canopy version of the MedTent, the InTent, is identical except we use our proven Showoff pure white tent fabric, which for 30 years, artists who perform weekend art shows have been getting great performance results for longevity of fabric wear and wind resistance as compared to other portable less-structural tents like EZ Up and KD or other low cost offshore manufactured products.
The aerodynamic slanted front and sloped roof design provides less wind resistance as vertical or peaked tents. Combined with the use of telescoping anodized aluminum tubing for the frame and leg supports makes the MedTent a simple installation without the need for tools or ladders and can be erected with 2 people as shown in our MedTent setup video.
The MedTent / InTent is portable, lightweight and easy to set up and does require to be weighted and guy roped for any outdoor application. Like all tent products, please be vigilant in securing your MedTent and aware of weather conditions that go beyond typical inclement weather that could require additional securing or removal of the fabric.
The MedTent as designed could be used to drive into as the space between legs is approximately 10’0″ or add the optional 36″ projection awning for cars to drive alongside to protect staff while servicing car drivers. Additionally, the MedTents can be connected to each other with a zippered gutter joiner that could allow for several continuous MedTent setups. Similarly if using an InTent along a sidewalk, the same option exists to cover long waiting areas for various functions ie. testing lines, voting lines, shopping lines, movie theaters, sports functions, transit waiting lines, etc.
