What is a Jackleg Cabin?

A jackleg cabin is a type of portable cabin that sits on four adjustable steel support legs, allowing these cabins to be levelled on uneven surfaces - depending on where they’re being used - for optimum stability and versatility.

These cabins can come in various unit sizes with an open plan layout, allowing you to customise the interior however is most practical for your needs. They also come with electrical sockets, overhead lighting and convector heaters, as well as a stainless steel sink unit, water inlet connection and a waste outlet.

Importance of First-Aid at a Festival

Due to the nature of festivals, there are many factors at play that can impact the likelihood of someone needing medical attention. For example:

  • Exposure to the sun/heat

  • Mosh pits

  • Alcohol and drugs

  • Exposure to outdoor wildlife (e.g. insects, wasps)

  • Use of camping cooking equipment

These factors make sense that some of the most common medical complaints at festivals include:

  • Sunstroke

  • Fainting

  • Hyperventilation

  • Minor injuries (e.g. sprained ankle or cuts and bruises from falling over)

  • Overconsumption of alcohol and drugs (please note, we do not endorse the consumption of illegal substances)

  • Bites and stings

  • Minor burns

With so many varying risk factors at play, along with the high number of attendees often found at festivals, having first-aid stations and medical staff on hand is imperative.

Using a Jackleg Cabin for First-Aid

A jackleg cabin makes for an ideal first-aid setup at festival events for various reasons. Firstly, their transportable nature and ability to be levelled on uneven surfaces makes them especially safe, easy to install and convenient to use, considering that most festivals take place outdoors and in fields.
