MOUNT AIRY – Granite Tactical Vehicles is moving beyond protecting personnel from hostile fire to also offering portable booths designed to protect people administering COVID-19 tests.

The company is best known for adding armor and other defensive materials to military and police vehicles but says its focus has changed to help in the COVID-19 fight.

No Contact portable covid-19 testing booth

New products include a no contact portable testing booth and a combination of the booth alongside a mobile pathogen testing unit.

“Our healthcare professionals should be able to decompress at the end of the hard day hugging their loved ones not hiding from them,” the company says, alluding to the protection the booh and testing unit provide.

“The design of the booth took into consideration the additional stress placed on the healthcare professional from the possibility of exposure to the virus and the possibility of contaminating other team members or loved ones. This additional stress reduces the healthcare members ability to combat the virus which results in less members on the front line of this battle.”

Features include:

  • No contact is made between healthcare professional and patient.
  • Intercom allows healthcare professional to effectively interact with patient.
  • Access to patient is provided through two rubber gloves connected by sealed flanges through the front window.
  • Booth is supplied internally with HEPA filtered air resulting in overpressure in booth preventing any contamination from entering booth.
  • Each unit is sealed and contained so no PPE is required resulting in lower operating costs, time efficiency and ease of performance.
  • Units expedite testing so more people can be tested within any given time period.
  • Interior provides overhead light as well as a dual plug outlet to power computer or any other piece of electronic equipment. (Booth requires a power source to plug in to)
  • Portable air compressor with HEPA filter can be placed up to 50′ away from patients and continuously pump filtered air into the booth maintaining the slight overpressure inside booth.
  • Stainless steel units are easy to sanitize and maintain both with regard to the interior and exterior.
  • Self-locking door to prevent the possibility of accidental contamination.
  • AC and Heat available upon request.
  • Worldwide use with 110 volt or 220 volts, depending on country of use.
  • 2″ insulated walls
