In Breaking Bad a tent made of plastic wrap(?) with rigid rods is used for meth cooking:

Meth cooking tent

Since it's definitely not sold for that purpose in hardware stores, what's the original purpose of it? Can one buy one (for other purposes) or is it supposed to be some custom built thing?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This will get shut down for violating the help center terms, "Unimportant trivia that does not add to the understanding or appreciation of the title." Still, to help, I'm pretty sure it's a green-house tent. – Meat Trademark Jun 9 '14 at 10:50
1 normal greenhouse? – Napoleon Wilson Jun 9 '14 at 10:52
Not a normal one, but a portable one. WORD! – Meat Trademark Jun 9 '14 at 10:54
Now that I have the answer I realise this is quite trivial. However the answer is good, already up-voted and the question has been faved... and none of you voted to close. You're free to do it. Anyway I got my answer and know where to start looking. – Cedric H. Jun 9 '14 at 11:28
@CedricH. Well, the fav only came from someone who wasn't yet sure if to close- or downvote it and just wanted to keep the question under surveillance. So I wouldn't interpret any kind of actual content-wise interest into faving a question, but nevermind. And congratulations to the 100th Breaking Bad question anyway. ;-) – Napoleon Wilson Jun 9 '14 at 12:53

It's most likely just a simple greenhouse. While most models are sold with solid walls/roofs/covers made of glass or plastic (at least here in Germany), there are models made for plastic sheets as well.

A quick Google search even listed some indeed portable greenhouses that are more compact and possibly easier to be built within rooms.

To me it looks like some standard greenhouse built for gardens, just with foil rather than glass plates or anything similar that is more "clunky".
