A custom-built, modular, shelter system, the RacTent was developed specifically for the support of scientific research in remote polar regions. Its design is based on a unique web-beam framing system that allows for fast assembly, solid security and a more effective interior work environment than possible with traditional tube-framed, dome or Quonset shaped shelters. Suitable for any cold climate or polar region. The product won an Award of Excellence, safety and protective category, in the 2009 IFAI IAA competition.
