Product description Brand name and product description

The Quick Erect (QE) Series Carbon Fiber Framed Shelter is a temporary shelter that can be set up on-site within a few minutes, depending on the size of the unit. Designed by FSI North America, the shelter uses a carbon fiber strut system that can expand for fast setup and retract for storage. The canopy fabric that covers the strut system is designed to be resistant to chemicals and UV, and, when properly secured to the ground, can withstand 70 mph winds.

The Carbon Fiber Frame Shelter can be used for emergency applications including field hospitals, urgent medical surge capacity additions, temporary housing, isolation centers, and other uses. Units can be configured with additional windows, doors, insulation, ducts, alternate colors, and combined with other FSI shelter products.
