INNOVATION AND PIONEERING

Since 1995, Alpinter has focused on the Research and Development (R&D) of tents and other core relief items. 

We strongly believe that by combining the efforts of suppliers, humanitarian agencies and the end-recipients, we can create an adaptive response net to cover a wide range of vulnerabilities that a natural or man-made disaster might cause.

    FIRE RETARDANCY

    Innovation and the desire to create safer products has seen us commit to making fire-retardant products.
    A fire can start anywhere and at any time; a non-treated tent will burn to ashes in less than a minute, trapping people inside with very little chance of survival. But when the tent canvas has a flame-retardant treatmentor is made from materials like polyethylene (PE) that slow the spread of flames, we actually reduce the probability of combustion and offer occupants time to escape.

    INNOVATIVE LOGISTICS

    While durability and performance are the major focus points for our research and development, we also go to great lengths in the pursuit of more efficient logistics. Alpinter has been an innovative front runner in this area; offering numerous benefits, our adapted stackable pallet cages or adapted container pallets (CRI pallets) have become an industry standard.
