J & S Franklin Ltd
: 01 December, 2007  (New Product)
J & S Franklin have announced two major contracts to supply tents for the UK
Ministry of Defence for use by British Military personnel in Afghanistan. The tents, part
of the 'Improved Tented Camp' (ITC) have been supplied in a range of sizes for use in
tented field hospitals and as personnel accommodation. The two contacts together are
worth £1m
Franklin make the shelters for the ITC including the 12 x 12, the 24 x 18, passageway and
four way connector. Being of modular design, they can be extended and joined in a wide
range of configurations and are extensively deployed in Iraq and Afghan for
accommodation, command centers and field hospitals.

The GP shelters have a lightweight tubular aluminum frame providing high strength and
stability, and are simple and quick to erect. Franklin have helped develop the sunshield
system which uses the same modular frame system and significantly reduces the temperature in the shelters as well as reducing abrasive wear on the shelter material as well as the storm doors which give additional security and improve weather protection.
