The new HTS-RDS division was set up to focus on suppling international military and humanitarian organisations with the highest quality shelters, in the quickest, easiest, fastest and most economical way possible.

Heinz Röder, one of the founders of the aluminium tent industry, with his core business in the event structure market, set up this new HTS military and relief shelter systems division to bring his wealth of tent industry experience and knowledge into the military and relief organisation sector.

Lightweight carbon-hybrid shelters

HTS-RDS has developed a revolutionary generation of temporary structures, which combines the use of carbon with aluminium for the main frame components.

This structure system reduces the weight of the main profiles (uprights and rafters) by up to 45%. This weight saving translates into substantial advantages for the user in terms of general loading, handling of the product and reduced installation costs. The carbon-hybrid technology can be used in the HTS-RDS hangar, troop shelter and multi-purpose tent systems.

  • Inflatable shelters and tents
