HTS TENTIQ is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of temporary tent structures. HTS TENTIQ offers modular lightweight structures for purchase or hire, facilitated by our branches across Europe.
Our industrial tents and temporary buildings can be used for a variety of applications: storage, distribution, sales, sports halls, retail, containment for decontamination work, car showrooms, production halls and much more.
Thanks to our innovative, robust structures, temporary buildings can be used for both temporary and permanent installations. It comes down to the customer’s needs. Our structures are versatile and easy to set up and dismantle. We are often asked to relocate our temporary buildings to another site for our customers. There are different hire periods. In some cases, a building has been used for a certain purpose for 20 years with minimal maintenance. The buildings can be as temporary or permanent as you like.
It’s simple really. Our temporary buildings are much more cost effective than conventional buildings. They can be set up in a matter of days, extend your floor space and, in the majority of cases, do not need any ground preparations. They can also be extended or reduced in size as you wish or relocated at short notice – something that is not possible with traditional steel buildings. When you opt for HTS TENTIQ, you are also opting for a safe investment with a high resale value. Please ask us about our ‘buyback guarantee’.
Our clients’ needs vary a lot. As a rule of thumb, it is advisable to hire the structure if you are going to use it for 6 to 18 months. For longer projects, purchasing is more commercially attractive. Let us advise you and we will find the most cost-effective solution for your needs.
All HTS TENTIQ temporary buildings are made in Europe from high-quality extruded aluminium and are corrosion-free for life. The connecting pieces and inserts are made from hot-galvanised steel. Our roofs consist of durable PVC covers or trapezoidal sheet steel. For the walls, we use insulated or uninsulated materials, all tested to withstand extreme conditions. The PVC covers and walls are available in a wide range of RAL colours. All our materials satisfy regional building code requirements.
This is a revolutionary design, which combines carbon and aluminium to create lighter yet significantly more robust frames. These structures facilitate extremely easy, quick and convenient handling and assembly. They offer ease of transport yet unparalleled strength and durability. They are the ideal solution for military and humanitarian applications in situations which call for rapid deployment under adverse conditions, for example.
