The M.A.D.-MK (small command) tent is a multi-purpose tent. It can be used as a command tent, accommodation tent, convenient storage, workshop, or for other purposes. In case of natural and other disasters or refugee crises, it can accommodate up to 5 persons. A M.A.D.-MK tent is a stand-alone unit. It consists of a canvas, a set of frames, and accessories. A larger window on one side ensures the brightness and airiness of the room, while a smaller one on the opposite side also includes a grid and a lid. The front side has a roller shutter entrance. The backside is full and without openings. All corners are anchored to the base which further increases the stability of the tent. Anchoring the lids on the front and back ensures the stability of the frame. The tent enables safe installation even on a hard surface (asphalt, concrete…).
Due to cooperation with world-renowned suppliers, many years of experience and tradition, the lifespan of our M.A.D.-CIVIL tents is at least 15 years long. If you follow the instructions for use and maintenance, the lifecycle is even longer. In this case, we acknowledge a 5-year warranty. History and years of experience allow us to provide service and spare parts for all our tents, on the basis of which we have developed our production program.
The primary areas of use are:
- Civil protection,
- field hospitals and triage,
- first aid points,
- humanitarian organisations,
- accommodation facilities,
- warehouse and storage,
- handy workshop,
Instructions for setting up a tent
The M.A.D.-MK tent is set up as a whole. It is necessary to choose a suitably large terrain for setting up a tent, clean it of stones and other upholstery. The floor plan of one tent field is 360 cm × 250 cm. When setting up a tent, follow these steps:
- Unfold and prepare the frame poles and associated connectors.
- Assemble the roof part of the frame and put the bottom of the tent under the frame.
- Attach the canvas roof part to the tips of the ridge connectors.
- Start by inserting the legs of the frame on one side by lifting this side of the roof and insert all the standing poles into the connectors.
- Continue inserting the standing poles on the other side of the tent.
- When setting up a tent in wind zones 2 and 3, the tent must be secured the tent with the storm band Viharnik (additional equipment) and anchored with ropes with PVC tensioners.
- Anchor the canvas parts to the base with the included pegs. Anchor the entire tent with additional ropes with PVC tensioners and bind them to the tips of the connectors and pegs.
- In the case of long-term installation, it is recommended to dig a drainage ditch about 10 cm deep and about 20 cm wide around the tent. Place the drainage tapes (free-falling lower plastic-coated edgings) in it, and in case of strong winds load them.
Dismantling the tent
Disassemble the tent in the reverse order of installation. Be careful to store all parts of the tent in the appropriate bags or bags with sewn-in pockets with sketches and components. We suggest the following steps:
- Remove all the pegs and store them in the accessory packaging.
- Remove the standing poles on one side of the tent and lower it. Remove the canvas part from the tips of the connectors.
- Fold the canvas part and store it in the cross bags for canvas parts.
- Remove the standing poles on the other side of the tent. Continue to dismantle the frame.
- Put the connectors in the packaging. Store the poles in the frame bags. Follow the identification cards.
Tent packing and storage
Pack completely dry canvas parts. If this is not possible, dry them as soon as you arrive at the storage place.
Store properly folded parts in the PE cross bags for canvas parts. Follow the identification cards, which will make it easier for you to reuse the tent. Store the cross bags in an airy and dry place, raised from the ground.
During long-term storage, it is recommended to periodically ventilate the canvas parts. Unpack the parts and put them back in the packaging after a few hours. Ventilation is recommended at least twice a year.
Fold the tent and store it in the prescribed packaging, adapted for pallet transport. Put the frame in a bag and transport it in bulk. Store accessories and binders in bags (collected in cardboard boxes) and you are ready for pallet transport.
Tent maintenance and cleaning
Brush the canvas parts and, if necessary, wash them with a jet of water. Use only a softer brush. Spread out the tent and let it dry. Washed the frame and let it dry. Canvas parts, frame parts, and accessories should be packed and stored completely dry. Machine washing, dry-cleaning, or bleaching of canvas parts is not allowed. Ironing or tumble drying them is also not allowed.
Tears and other damage to the outer canvas should be repaired by the manufacturer.
