Quick cover-up [CANSEC17D1]

31 May 2017

First-time exhibitor ROBUS Shelters is presenting its mobile, self-deploying shelter on Outside Booth 3027, which can be installed on at, inclined or pathless terrain requiring no more than one or two operators.

The shelter is designed to withstand applied loads and extreme weather conditions including high-velocity winds and temperature variations, which increases efficiencies in manpower, logistics, energy and time.

The shelter is integrated into a custom double-axle steel trailer that can be towed by a standard half-ton truck and can also be transported in ISO standard shipping containers.

Once in position, the shelter can deploy in less than four minutes, and can be fully set up in less than 15 minutes. e shelter can be packed in less than 20 minutes by two operators.

The smallest size of shelter currently offered is 16m in diameter, with a surface area of 200m2.

The largest size, although not yet built, can be more than 45m in diameter, with a surface area of more than 1,680m2.

The proprietary deployment mechanism allows for a minimum footprint for logistic purposes, and once deployed, the shelter qualities as a permanent structure under the Canadian building code. As a result of its heavy load capacity, the shelter allows for integration of many different types of systems, from turrets to communications beacons.

The shelter can also function as a mobile hangar, with a special customisation that allows for ultra-wide clearance of aircraft wingspans.
