WHAT ARE CC SHELTERS?

CC Shelters (CCS) use inflation to create a surface that is optimised for compressive loading. This allows thin-walled concrete structures to be formed which are both robust and lightweight.

CCS are constructed from Concrete Canvas CC13, bonded to the outer surface of a plastic inner, which forms a Nissen-Hut shaped structure once inflated.

CCS are deployed in four stages: Delivery, Inflation, Hydration and Setting.

Rapid Construction

CCS are far more durable than conventional, soft skinned tents with a design life of over 10 years.
 

The hard shell and lockable doors of a CCS provide a level of security not possible with soft skinned structures, protecting stores, equipment and personnel.

The compressive structure of CCS has been modelled to be covered with sand or earth fill, to provide additional thermal mass and insulation, providing an excellent level of thermal performance.

A 25m² CCS can be deployed by 2 people in less than 1 hour and is ready to use in only 24 hours.
 

 

CC SHELTER ADVANTAGES

CCS have two major advantages over conventional tented shelters:

OPERATIONAL
CCS enable a hardened structure from day one of an operation. They provide much better environmental protection, increased security and vastly improved medical capability.

FINANCIAL
CCS have a design life of over 10 years, whereas tents wear out rapidly and must then be replaced. CCS' are a one-stop solution, saving effort and cost over the lifetime of medium to long-term operations.

 

 

 

FORMATS

CCS structures consist of Concrete Canvas fixed to an inflatable inner with integral steel door sets at each end.

PACKAGING

CCS are supplied in polyethylene, airtight, water proof, rot proof packaging within ISPM15 heat treated timber/ply panel crates.

MODULARITY
CCS structures are designed as part of a modular system; units can be docked together to create arrays of structures to suit operational requirements.

REQUIREMENTS FOR DEPLOYMENT
Both CCS variants can be deployed by 2 people. A CCS50 will require a vehicle or winch to aid with the unfolding of the shelter prior to inflation. Each shelter is provided with the ground pegs required for inflation.
