Tecnodimensión has recently complete the first inflatable emergency hospital for the coronavirus emergency (COVID-19): a 1,000-square-meter structure for Pachuca, capital of the territory of Hidalgo, in Mexico.
The company has been making inflatables structures since 2001 and their plans, despite their soft shapes, comply with all the building code regulations: high resistance fabrics with polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is 100% recyclable, fire retardant materials and a long etcetera of specialized requirements.
The structure stands with the air pressure that is introduced in between the membranes. The operating rooms work with their own membrane, and the air goes throug a HEPA14 filter which guarantees the correct conditions of the room.
The guarantees offered by the inflatable constructions and the low cost of the structure (about 300 euros per square meter) have made the company received a lot of orders in the past few weeks “We have not been able to confirm many of these last minute orders, they all want them immediately and we need not only time to build them, but there is a matter of stockpiling materials.”
The emergency hospital is designed to be the quickest response to an immediate care centre, in the event of catastrophes, health emergencies, natural disasters, or provide a mobile intervention centre. These rapid action tents are modular, inflatable systems that adapt to any terrain allowing them to be quickly installed irrespective of space available.
They are, therefore, an effective solution that respond to the needs of regions without a specialised medical infrastructure. Each inflatable mobile unit is created according to customer needs to satisfy the population needs.
