When Jagged Globe needed shelters tough enough to safely tackle the rugged terrain and extreme weather conditions at a Mount Everest basecamp, they chose Alaska Structures®.
As a world leader in adventure tourism for mountaineering, high-altitude treks and skiing, Jagged Globe’s choice makes sense. Since 1975, no other company has been able to match the quality, portability, versatility or field-tested durability of Alaska Structures’ tension fabric structures for outdoors applications.
High-quality Alaska Structures’ tensile structures are the No. 1 choice of adventure tourism companies like Jagged Globe that place a high value on safety. The engineering that goes into every one of our American-made fabric structures and camp systems is tested by third-party experts to ensure that it meets our demanding standards and performs as intended.
Alaska Structures uses durable thermoplastic fabrics, sturdy metal frames, and secure anchoring systems specifically engineered to stand up to high wind speeds, heavy snows, and drenching rains without flapping or tearing. Highly portable and pre-packed in easy-to-carry bags, these fully engineered fabric structures and camp systems are ideal for mobile or permanent use in remote areas.
