The Evolved “Home-on-Demand.”

First responders know the importance of providing semi-permanent shelter and emergency structures when disaster strikes. It can mean the difference between survival and reporting casualties. Traube’s Rapid Deployment Units or R.D.U.’s provide fast and functional shelter in any environment, and most are fully engineered for both wind and snow loading capabilities.

In field applications of Rapid Deployment Shelters have included:
  • Mobile Command Posts
  • Mobile Hospitals
  • Instant Accommodations/Operations Facility
  • Warming/Cooling Centers
  • Decontamination Shelters
  • First Aid Tents
  • Temporary Emergency Housing
  • Portable Isolation Systems
Installation in Minutes, Not Hours

Traube’s Rapid Deployment Units can be easily installed with a team of 1-4 people, depending on the size of the shelter and the configuration you need. Each unit packs into a convenient case, and includes a pump to fill your structure. Once the ballasts of the structure are filled completely, the pump can be disconnected. The structure will remain inflated with no continuous power source needed.

Unparalleled Site and Service Expertise

When you work with Traube Structures, you can be assured that you will work with a seasoned Project Partner and their Installation Staff, if required. Your Project Partner will assist you in the site planning and structure selection process. From massive emergency complexes spanning across thousands of square footage, to a single mobile command center, our team can work with you to make sure you have the right unit in the field to make your operations run smoothly.

All Traube staff works to maintain strict OSHA compliance and are fully licensed and insured for your added protection.

Available Rapid Deployment Shelter Sizes

Our Rapid Deployment Units come in a wide-range of sizes and are installed by only Traube trained staff. Our units can be coupled with special requirements, such as lighting and HVAC. For sites requiring additional functional/structural accompaniments, please contact a Project Partner to arrange for a planning session to review all options available to you.
