FORTS has more than 30 years of experience creating new and innovative shelters for adverse environments.
The company's facilities are designed to bring speed and flexibility to medical applications worldwide.
Miltary shelters for remote locations
Each FORTS shelter can be deployed as a stand-alone facility or connected with other shelters. The same shelter can be used for multiple purposes by switching out the integrated medical equipment and supplies.
All FORTS shelters are designed for compatibility with worldwide shipping systems, with a full range such as field hospitals, medical / dental clinics, isolation units, mass casualty decontamination units, mass fatality units, patient wards and staff housing.
FORTS developed ground breaking fold-out technology to create rapidly deployable, durable and highly energy-efficient shelters ideal for remote medicine around the globe. With its 260,000ft² design, engineering and production facility currently expanding to 410,000ft², FORTS is positioned to meet the extensive demand for its solutions.
CBRN multi-layered defence system for exposure protection
Using FORTS shelters, staff and patients are protected from chemical, biological, radioactive and nuclear (CBRN) exposure via a multi-layered defence system, which allows patient care to continue without delay.
The combined capabilities of filtration, decontamination, surveillance and monitoring allows staff and patients to function effectively within a secure environment.
Fold-out rigid wall shelters for high-quality medical facilities
FORTS utilises its fold-out rigid wall technology to provide comfortable, easily deployable, and enhanced portable shelters for adverse environments.
Each shelter uses CSC certified ISO Container frames, which insures compatibility with international shipping standards by land, sea or air.
With FORTS' exclusive unloading and levelling system, there is no need to source specialty on-site equipment, such as forklifts or cranes, to deploy a shelter. These features make FORTS shelters the fastest remote and emergency medical facilities worldwide.
Automated and integrated medical utilities and equipment
All utility systems and medical equipment are monitored and controlled through advanced system automation. Electricity, potable water and medical gas generation systems are built-in along with communication, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC), air filtration, sanitary waste and decontamination systems as required.
Interchangeable medical equipment is kept in a 'mission-ready' state within each shelter, and the medical stations are able to support intensive care, obstetric, pediatric care, surgery and dialysis. Each station is simply rolled into position once the shelter is deployed.
With FORTS' equipment monitoring system the location, preventative maintenance and operational status insures staff can provide fast, high-quality care.
Medical procedure supplies for emergency patients
Each field hospital includes a 12h to 24h supply of interchangeable medical procedure kits, critical for handling an initial surge of patients until medical supplies can be replenished. With clear labels and simple-to-follow directions in each medical procedure kit, new or less skilled personnel will be effective immediately.
Inventory management is made easy with FORTS barcode labels on all consumables to facilitate proactive stock rotation, automated ordering and timely inventory restocking.
