ARM’S collapsible portable baptistry lives up to its name and is being used in churches and jails, and by missionaries all over the world. The unit collapses down to the size of a large suitcase (12” x 25” x 31”) for easy transport on a plane or in a car and weighs only 30 pounds. When not in use, it can be stored in a closet. When opened, the unit measures 70” x 24” x 24” and holds 200 gallons of water, capable of accommodating an individual up to 6’5” tall and weighing up to 300 pounds.
When ready to use, simply pull four pins securing the frame and unfold it like a lawn chair. Installation requires only minimal assembly and no tools. Eight machined custom aluminum hinges allow the frame to open and close easily. The heavy-duty, coated vinyl liner wraps around and snaps onto the one-inch square aluminum frame.
Seams are hot-air welded to prevent leaks, and the double-padded bottom panel guards against puncture. The liner’s tight fit, combined with the weight of the water, prevents the frame from collapsing. A two-directional plug allows the liner to be filled and drained with a simple garden hose.
