What is an

It’s a structure that achieves strength and stability by using internal air pressure to put tension into the envelope or skin of the building.

Constructed of lightweight and flexible materials, inflatable buildings are ideal for a variety of temporary applications.

Which type of tent is best for you?

Constant Air

Sometimes referred to as an ‘air cell’ structure, this is an inflatable building built by stitching two layers of interconnected PVC membrane. The gap between the layers is pressurised with air to create a double skin building.

  • Fans can maintain pressure, even if tent is damaged.
  • Great for larger tents (8m / 26’ widths and over).
  • Stitched PVC means fans must operate continuously to replace lost air
  • Double skin wall thickness reduces internal area.
