Holding Company (part of Rostec) will introduce new pneumo-frame
inflatable modular buildings to the market, intended for quick erection of temporary
structures, such as field hospitals, storages, mobile sport facilities, etc.
Mounting process takes only 1-2 hours.
The pneumo-frame buildings were created by the Dolgoprudnenskoe Design Bureau of Automatics (part of
Ruselectronics) -- Russia's leading designer and producer of airships and other
aerostats. Taffeta (polyester silk) used in these inflatable buildings is also
widely used in production of aircraft. This material is more environmentally
friendly and non-toxic than polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which is traditionally
used in prefabricated constructions.
"Rostec continues to increase the selection and
production volumes of its civilian products. According to our strategy, share
of civilian products in the total revenue should exceed 50% by 2025. Due to
their characteristics, pneumo-frame buildings can be used in emergency response
operations, making them especially relevant for countries with a high risk of
natural disasters, such as India, China and Southeast Asian states. These new
products also fully meet modern high-level environmental standards", said the
Executive Director of Rostec, Oleg
Pneumo-frame buildings are
erected using an electro-compressor that injects pressurized air into the tubular
inflatable cylinders. These constructs are mobile, lightweight and compact when
folded. Such structures do not require a
foundation and can be quickly installed
on any surfaces, including snow, sand and rocky soil. They also allow one
to easily and safely install ventilation, heating and various access systems -
gates, doors and hatches. Inflatable buildings have high seismic resistance and
can be operated at any time of the year, withstanding heavy snow, thermal and
wind loads and extreme temperatures from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius. If
necessary, the prefabricated constructions can be easily dismantled and reused.
The cost of one product starts at $24 000 (1.5 million
rubles) depending on the size and the customer's wishes for additional options,
for example, the number of entrances.
