Experts warned for upcoming epidemics/pandemics and this is exactly the situation we are in now. We, the Nordwest-Box in cooperation with the RKI, launched the EKOS project for precisely this exceptional situation.
Our new isolation tent offers a quick solution to provide highly contagious patients with intensive medical care. The isolation tent is set up in about 10 minutes and then ready for use immediately. It consists of special high pressure hoses that are inflated with the help of compressors. The EKOS tent is characterized by its fast, modular adaptation to new conditions. It is divided into three areas; the decon department, a sluice and the treatment area. Due to various connection options with zippers it is possible to connect additional tents, sluices and hosesuits.
With approx. 80 Pascal the under-pressure in the tent can be controlled. Air exchange takes place 15 times an hour and is located in the ceiling area. The filters and blowers are mounted at the outsidewall of the tent, as well as the waste disposal through an endless hose, with which the waste is immediately sealed airtight.
