An important company can be found in Sicily, in the beautiful city of Ragusa, close to the industrial area, working in the field of waste disposal. R.I.U. La Cognata is a company specialised in the collection, treatment and disposal of waste. The need to install a Kopron industrial tent was born from the strong desire to accelerate the disposal of plastic waste. The mobile structure, installed in just a fortnight, acts as a strategic cover for machinery specialised in the recycling process.

The Kopron industrial tent is made from hot galvanised steel with a resistant class 1 self-extinguishing PVC cover (flame reaction: CSE-RF-1/75-Cl.1)*, with personalised colours. The structural frame of the cover is fixed to a concrete base and anchored using galvanised steel bolts certified according to the norm UNI EN 1090. The dimensions of the structure, made to measure, cover the processing cycle in the most functional manner: 1,500 sq.m., 25 metres wide with a single span, 12.5 metres high and 60 metres long. There are four openings along one side of the structure and three on the other side, for access by vehicles.
