Corona Cabin: Despite Coronavirus, Međimurje Company Tehnix Does Well

Lauren Simmonds

As Novac/Visnja Gotal writes on the 23rd of March, 2020, the Međimurje-based company Tehnix has developed and manufactured an interesting mobile Corona Cabin for the prevention of the spread of coronavirus and for people with viral symptoms.

The mobile cabin, measuring 3×6,40 metres in size, is equipped with a kitchen, a bathroom and a sleeping area, it has a heating and ventilation system and is suitable for longer stays.

”We developed the cabin primarily because of our drivers travelling to Europe. Upon arrival, they leave the truck to be disinfected, and are placed in a sterile corona cabin, where they can rest and remain there until their next  drive. It is prevention for them and for the people around them. The cabin is for the healthy, to avoid the sick, but also for the sick, so as not to infect the healthy,” said Tehnix owner Đuro Horvat.

The drivers have no contact with other people throughout this process. They are instructed on what to do by telephone, and the directorate receives an impulse when the driver arrives at the cabin.

”Corona Cabins are designed for up to four people, the food is put in a separate compartment, without having had contact with each person. A Corona Cabin has also been set up in Luxembourg to serve the rest of Tehnix’s drivers while travelling.

It took a week from us at Tehnix having the idea of a Corona Cabin to actually bringing it to the point of realisation,” said, Đuro Horvat, adding that orders for the cabin, which costs 130,000 kuna, are already arriving from Croatia, Europe and the rest of the world.

He believes that, except for prevention, Tehnix’s innovative cabins are ideal for treating patients in the event of a lack of hospital capacity. Equally, they can be acquired by private individuals.

Tehnix has also announced an innovative contactless waste disposal system, also for the purpose of virus prevention.
