SiF ORT World leading Canvas Tent Manufacturing Company
The Scientific Industrial firm ORT was formulated in 1990, with its head office and factory situated in St. Petersburg, Russia. The initial idea was to full fill the market gap in army / military & relief / disaster management tents, tents for camping with family outdoor, retail street trading gazebos and collapsible marquees.
SiF ORT came up with new tent design that changed standards. Its simplistic yet durable frame structure, called the "Frame Modular", allowed very quick setup and brake down procedure. All poles of the frame were the same size and shape and had smart fixation mechanisms on its both ends where all equal connectors would go in so it could not come apart on its own.
The superior quality of products as well as workmanship has positioned SIF ORT as the preferred and sole supplier of tents to the Russian Ministry of Defence and Emergency in mid 90s.
SIF ORT, over the past 20 years has consistently been represented at leading aid exhibitions, which has proven its commitment to assist those who became homeless, while developing long and lasting relationships with aid agencies, such as the United Nations and the Red Cross, to name but a few.
With the most relief efforts centred in - and - around Africa, the need to expand its efforts culminated into a branch being opened in Centurion SA in 2003, strategically positioned to act as a gateway into Africa.
Entire product range was adapted to the new market. It was decided that all tents should be coming with large windows with mosquito netting and sun proved curtains, there should be an allowance to roll up sidewalls to ventilate the tent and inner cloth, that had to be attached to the frame from inside to serve as insulation device to be regarded as a must have accessory.
Outer cloth of the tent had to be made of heavy duty Russian cotton canvas to withstand extreme sun heat and water penetration. That fabric works very well when all applied chemicals are destroyed within time: the material observes the water that travels through its natural threads towards the ground.
The build up and brake down of the tent was made so simple that unskilled personnel with no tools in position could do it very quickly. Download a video from this server to check it out yourself:
