The Berchtesgaden mountain rescue team depends on the inflatable X-GLOO tent from Skywalk for a major rescue mission.
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 5x5 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 setup 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.
