About HTS Clear Span Structure Systems
Engineered to your requirements
The Röder family tent business early beginnings started with the design and production of wooden frame tents with canvas covers for use as the companies own rental inventory.
The Röder family business expands into the market of supplying their tents which are now offered for sale to other tent rental companies.
The company’s early product range develops with the introduction of steel which is used as the main material for the main frame components instead of the previously used material of timber.
The development and availability of extruded aluminium, combined with the substantial weight reductions aluminium offered when compared to steel, lent itself as a more user friendly material for use in the construction of the modular tent systems. The use of extruded aluminium had the added benefit of integrated channels which facilitated a significant design improvement by using the “keder” channels for securing the roof and wall covers by means of the keder fixation system making the new design a truly modular system.
The new aluminium frame with keder groove system together with an ever growing range of tent designs soon became a success for the Röder family business. To capitalise on an ever increasing demand for the products, the Röder family open a new factory specifically for the mass production of its various tent systems. The factory was located in the Röder family’s home town of Wolferborn, Büdingen, Germany.
Continuous product development enabled the Röder family business to excel as a major market leader, a highlight of the development program lead to the design, manufacture and launch of the world’s first 2-storey, multi-level modular tent, yet fully demountable construction – today found in numerous applications worldwide.
