Not only are containers now most useful as accommodation and work spaces, they are also providing innovative protection for the military. DREHTAINER GmbH is demonstrating its Zero Shock System at DSEI this week.

Managing partner Reinhard Glombek is keen to show how effective its Zero Shock System is in deflecting the shockwave impact of mines or improvised explosive device (IED) blasts from the interior of vehicles or vehicle-mounted containers. In conjunction with DREHTAINER’s British partner, Advanced Blast & Ballistic Systems’ VGAM (vehicle global acceleration mitigation) system it is going to provide 100 % protection against mine blast and resulting global move.

Besides that DREHTAINER’s combat-proven protection concept for camps, container buildings and shelters is used by international forces in the Middle East and elsewhere, protecting against threats posed by vehicle-borne IEDs (VBIEDs), mortar grenades and rockets.

More than 2,000 of these protected containers were used in Afghanistan. Based on STANAG 2280, they proved their protective capabilities, having been qualified and certified up to threat level C5 (threat by 155mm artillery shells and 122mm rockets).
