Quality is Key
Humanitarian shelter and support items are by definition deployed in some of the most demanding human and climatic environments. While quality is an important consideration for all manufacturers, the longevity and fitness for purpose of disaster relief items is particularly critical for sustaining lives in remote regions.
Keeping with Alpinter’s policy of continuous, proactive quality control, we recently undertook materials testing in conjunction with the specialist lab Sirris. Intensive testing was carried out on the aluminium frame sourced from a new supplier, so we could be certain that the materials met the stringent requirements for Alpinter XPERT High Performance Tents.
Sirris completed the project in only five days. Their analysis made it possible to validate the tensile strength of the material. Thanks to these intensive and ongoing testing efforts Alpinter guarantees that the performance of its products meets and exceeds customer requirements.
