Inflatable tents for adverse environments

The NorLense high-pressure inflatable tent is a quickly deployable tent system, designed to meet mobility and comfort demands in all climates, hot and cold. The tents are suitable for both short-term and long-term camps.

The NorLense tent solution is highly mobile, and the high-pressure technology enables efficient set up and take-down, with minimal personnel and no machinery. This technology stabilises the tents and is not affected by drastic temperature changes.

The materials used in the tents combine high durability and low weight. The fabric of the tent is waterproof and flame-retardant PVC.

The NorLense tents are designed with connectable doors, windows, valves for natural ventilation and an air conditioning / heating unit connection.

The tents require minimum maintenance and have a low lifecycle cost with an expected service time of at least ten years.
