Aluminum Shelter

The aluminum shelter is so universally conceived that a multiplicity of application possibilities - e.g. in the communication and telecommunications range - are given. Ideally suited for mobile and stationary use, over 10,000 aluminum shelters have been delivered in recent years.

For the aluminum shelter, two design variants and various dimensions are available as basic versions:

  • Type A: unshielded version
  • Type B: with integrated RF shielding.

Type A is designed in such a way that the retrofitting of type B RF shielding is guaranteed.

The equipment with an integrated or adaptive ballistic protection is optionally possible.

In addition, the shelters can be equipped with a NBC protective ventilation system.

If the maintenance and care intervals are observed and the shelters are handled properly, they are designed for a service life of more than 20 years due to their construction and design.

In ZMS standard or customer-specific design and equipment, aluminum shelters can be used flexibly, e.g. as:

  • Telecommunication cabin
  • Command post
  • Ground control station
  • Relay station
  • Weather station
  • Server station

The customized equipment includes individual system integration (EDP, rack installation, communication technology, etc.) as well as integrated power supply, lighting and air conditioning.

The aluminum shelters can be operated both on a vehicle and placed on the ground. Individual configuration options of the aluminum shelters for vehicle-based use guarantee high flexibility and readiness for use.

The aluminum shelters are offered in various standard dimensions. Customized dimensions and designs are possible.
