X-GLOO Put to the Test During Cave Rescue Mission

X-GLOO Put to the Test During Cave Rescue Mission

Marquartstein, June 16, 2014 – The Berchtesgaden mountain rescue team recently depended on the inflatable X-GLOO tent from Skywalk for a major rescue mission at the Riesending cave on Untersberg.

Marquartstein, June 16, 2014 – For months now, the Berchtesgaden Mountain Rescue Team has been depending on the inflatable X-GLOO lightweight tent for their rescue missions. Now it is being put to use yet again for a massive rescue mission at the Riesending cave on Untersberg: A red 5×5 meter X-GLOO tent has been standing by the entrance to the cave at 1800 meters for days now, providing shelter for rescue personnel and their equipment. In the meantime, there are more than 200 rescue personnel on the scene at Untersberg, prompting the tent manufacturer Skywalk from the Chiemgau region of Germany to provide the mountain rescue teams with additional tent materials at no cost. The tents have proved once again that they are an ideal solution for emergency/catastrophe situations! The flexible allrounder from Skywalk is lightweight, quick to set up and stands securely on any surface. The X-Gloo fulfills the requirements for quick outdoor use. „It can be set up by one to two people in just minutes – saving precious time for life-saving rescue efforts“. Once anchored, the X-GLOO is stable on any surface. Even the rocky alpine surface of the Untersberg presented no problem for the lightweight tent.

„We are proud that with our X-GLOO, we have built a tent that can support the mountain rescue teams during their difficult work in very challenging terrain“, says Everhard Uphoff, Head of Marketing & Sales at X-GLOO. „Our X-Gloo demonstrated its flexibility in an emergency/catastrophe situation on the Untersberg. The additional elements can be used to combine multiple tents together and in no time at all you can set up an entire tent city.“

The X-GLOO stands up to winds and rain thanks to the waterproof materials and aerodynamic form. Rescue team members can stay warm and dry inside by simply zipping on the side walls. The X-GLOO is available in sizes 4x4m, 5x5m, 6x6m and 8x8m.

About X-GLOO:
Constructed from patented ripstop nylon, the X-GLOO Event Tent is perfectly suited as a trendy promotional tool or attractive trade show stand. The premium tent is available in sizes 4×4, 5×5, 6×6 and 8×8 meters and impresses with simple setup: only 10 minutes are required by 1 person and the tent will stand securely on asphalt, sand, grass, water or snow. The robust and yet still extremely light material of the flexible tent system allows use indoors and outdoors: the cloth is waterproof, UV-resistant and fulfills B1/ CPAI-84 fire protection norms. An additional plus point of the lightweight tent is the option for the individual design: Lettering, product photos or company logos can be applied to the roof, canopy, canopy banner, air-filled tubes, X-RELAX stool or water ballast barrels according to corporate design guidelines. There are practically no limits to designing the X-GLOO. Thus, the X-GLOO is transformed from pure event tent to image carrier par excellence. The X-GLOO can easily be closed by zipping the entrance wall, window wall or side walls closed to keep the wind and cold outside. Expansion of the covered area is simple by means of the canopy or by combining as many tents as desired with the tunnel elements. The functional LED lighting kit illuminates the inside of the tent.
