Defence Tactical Shelters

All TM shelters are deployable within 5 minutes with a minimum number of personnel and no additional resources such as power or height aids.The TM, TL and TXL shelters share the patented folding, extendable frame with fully adjustable feet. The PVC canvas is suspended inside the structure and its deployment follows a logical pattern that requires minimum training. The small number of parts minimizes vulnerabilities and maintenance requirements on the battlefield.UTILIS also equips shelters with full range of additional accessories that can be fitted without modification to meet user requirements: Thermal fly, Internal liner that can be divided into cubicles for private sleeping or work areas, NBC Colpro liner, heating, air-conditioning, ECUs, lighting, to name a few.

Mobile Tactical Shelters

UTILIS can design and produce any bespoke project for creating large work areas with maximum use of space. For this purpose UTILIS provides TL (7.2m wide x 4.2m long) and TXL (9m wide x 5.2 m long) series shelters that can be deployed in many configurations: as a large vehicle/helicopters maintenance enclosure, warehouse, command and control centre or as a field hospital ward.

The TL and TXL shelters are composed of multiple bodies, the surface of each body is modular and adapted to clients’ dimensions, and can also be linked further to any of the TM series shelters.

Colpro and NBC Protection Units

Through design evolvement UTILIS shelters have been adapted to provide many decontamination solutions. Both in the military or civilian environment the TM series shelters are used as a rapid deploy decontamination solution. These have been tailored to meet user requirements. Mobile decontamination units permit decontamination of 30 to 50 people/hour for walking and/or non-walking casualties.

The decontamination process can be carried out inside a Colpro system using positive pressure with controlled entry through an airlock; using a negative pressure system or incorporating multi lane internal disposable decontamination bags without air flow systems. Colpro tents can be set up as a command post, dormitory etc and can be linked to a decontamination unit.

Mobile Decontamination Units

In addition to complete shelter systems UTILIS provides containerized solutions for various applications, such as Colpro or decontamination, medical facilities, offices or yet administration complexes. These are completely autonomous containers for military (ISO type) or civil (Composite type) use with a possibility to complex them to any of the TM, TL or TXL series shelters.
