We are pleased to
introduce for license or sale some remarkable new safety shelter devices
for people who are working or relaxing outdoors.
The inventions, called fire
resistive and dielectric collapsible shelter devices (tents, canopies, and
umbrellas), provide shelter that protects people from lightning, electrical
power lines, fire, sun, and rain.
Present or similar shelters continue to put people at risk of electrocution
or fire in certain environmental
conditions. The need for a more complete safety shelter pointed out a need
that led Inventor Ray Bishop to the development of his COLLAPSIBLE SHELTER
DEVICES. He designed dielectric and fire resistive shelters that have
fiberglass, polycarbonate, and silicone rubber frames and covers. These
inventions provide ample sun and rain protection and will not burn, melt
(Most synthetic fabrics, such as nylon resist ignition. However, once ignited, the fabrics
melt. This hot, sticky, melted
substance causes localized and extremely severe burns. When natural and synthetic fibers
are blended, the hazard may increase because the combination of high rate
of burning and fabric melting usually will result in serious burns. In some cases, the hazard may be
greater than that of ether fabric individually.), or shock people should
they come in contact with electricity or fire. It should be noted that
these materials have been fully tested and proven to 100,000 v. per foot
(live line tool standard) under wet conditions.
The design used for the cover material and support members are simple and
uncomplicated, allowing these shelters to be easily produced at very
affordable prices. These are shelters that have been awarded a
much-deserved United States patent with 14 claims for their unique and
exceptional design. These products are now ready for immediate introduction
to vast and waiting markets.

These collapsible shelters fill a real need for safety
to people who are involved with utility work, telecommunications, military,
forestry, welding, back-packing, camping, golfing, etc. Once introduced,
consumer and industry acceptance should be enthusiastic and immediate.
marketing will be easy, as it will use outlets currently being used for
similar products in the above markets. In addition, these devices can be
offered in trade and industry catalogs, appropriate magazines, and over the
Internet. They are superior safety shelters that will open up a new and
highly profitable product line with unlimited national and international marketing
Simplicity and careful planning are used in these
shelters basic designs. Because of this, the designs are practical and
consideration has been given to manufacturing technique. They are products
that offer unique possibilities and deserve serious consideration from
The inventor has indicated a willingness to negotiate
the financial arrangements.
A MODEL UTILITY UMBRELLA MADE OUT OF FIRE RESISTIVE AND DIELECTRIC
MATERIALS IS AVAILABLE FOR INTERESTED MANUFACTURERS TO REVIEW.
