Trauma Screen vs Trauma Tent Applications


Area Safe Products supply lightweight pop-up First Aid Trauma Screens and First Aid Trauma Tents, but what is the real difference between them? When should one be used over/against the other?

The basic differences between the two ‘grab & run’ quick response emergency products and their applications are as follows:

First Aid Trauma Tent-

  • Fixed pre-set dimensions 2100 x 2100 x 2000(H)mm.
  • Has a white roof that gives overhead privacy (light filters through).
  • Designed for deployment in areas where overhead privacy is also required such as in multi-level shopping plazas, street level incidents, sport stadiums, multi-storey schools and universities etc.

First Aid Trauma Screen / Privacy Screen-

  • Easily configured 4-panel screen with overall size of 7200 x 1800(H)mm.
  • Designed for use in car parks (for incidents between cars etc) and other tight spaces such as corridors where the trauma tent won’t fit.
