Lightweight Inflatable Decontamination Systems

Chemical, biological and nuclear attacks constitute some of the most serious threats to national security. These threats have grown significantly over the past decade, and the United States’ emergency response teams are the first line of protection.

However, response teams need to react in a matter of minutes in order to stay effective. They need access to the most advanced technology available to control various types of threats and to limit exposure to hazardous materials; most importantly, they need decontamination systems that can function in any environment.


The lightest self-sufficient decontamination system ever designed.

Wel-Fab’s Lightweight Inflatable Decontamination Systems (LIDS) were designed to meet the strict standards of modern response teams. They feature easy setup, advanced technology and an unparalleled lightweight design.

We designed each product in collaboration with decontamination specialists to ensure that response teams can effectively utilize LIDS within minutes of arrival to decontaminate personnel exposed to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosive particulate matter. LIDS is the lightest self-sufficient decontamination system ever designed, and it can be deployed over virtually any surface. It provides major advantages over older systems including a smaller unit response footprint, fast setup and relocation times, and full validation from the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPO-CBD).

With advanced engineering and state-of-the-art technology, LIDS sets a standard for emergency response. Contact us today for more information or view a detailed description of each LIDS system by using the links on the side of this page.
