Franklin is a major supplier of tents to the British Ministry of
Defence, primarily the ITC shelter system and has been closely involved
in the development and improvement of the system to meet evolving
operational requirements. Franklin is
a also a major supplier of field hospitals, temporary shelters, modular
container shelters, tents for humanitarian aid and CBRN shelters.
THE IMPROVED TENTED
is the mainstay of the British Army's deployable tentage. Designed to be
easily erected, versatile and modular, it provides shelter and
protection for accommodation and field hospitals in support of today's
expeditionary force philosophy. Camps to house 125, 250 or 500 men are
modular in construction and use a formulated layout designed to route
all the necessary essential services, provide partitioned area
protection and yet combine ease of movement within the camp and secure
The main module of the ITC is the 24x18ft shelter unit, usually deployed
in 24, 48 or 72ft long configurations. This combines with the 12x12ft
shelter unit, the porchway, passageway and four way connector, to make
the five essential components of any camp. The addition of insulated
liners and sunshields make air conditioning much more effective to
provide additional levels of comfort in inhospitable climates and under
harsh operational conditions.
As well as our standard
products, we also make a range of specialist shelters, annexes and
attachments to meet specific requirements. Our production department can
help design custom products to fit specific vehicles or modular
container shelters. Design modifications can include larger or smaller
windows, roof apertures for antenna or reinforced with flame retardant
materials for chimneys. Shelter end panels are designed to attach to a
range of specific vehicles and can incorporate blackout connections,
environmental protection or CBRN facilities.
